BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Child labour is a major challenge for the attainment of the goals of Universal Basic Education Programme in Nigeria

Child labour is defined as, the participation of young children under the age of 15 years in the labour force, with the aim to earn a living or to support household income (Grootaert and Kanbur, 1995). In most developing countries, I in every 5 children work; and I in every 3 children work in Africa (Nigeria inclusive), though there are rates across these regions (World Bank, 2007).
