    THE PRINCIPLE OF APPROBATE AND REPROBATE.
    HOW DOES IT RELATE TO THE EMPLOYMENT ACT 1955?

    by
    RHYMIE BIN MOHD RAMLI*

    The principle of approbate and reprobate (also known as the doctrine of election) is a species of estoppel.[1] Basically, one is estopped from claiming something which he has not chosen. In other words, one cannot enjoy both benefits at the same time. Hence the saying, "you cannot have two bites of the cherry".

    In terms of employment or specifically the section 7A of the Act, an employer is not prevented from providing any terms and conditions under the contract of service more favourable than any provision under the Act or any of its regulations subject to express prohibition. Therefore, once an employee accepts terms or conditions which are better than the benefits under the Act, he or she is estopped from claiming under the latter. This is due to the fact that he enjoys better benefits provided under the contract of service.

    GENDER EQUALITY AND ACCESS TO EDUCATION:
    A REVIEW OF FACTORS INHIBITING GIRL CHILD EDUCATION IN NORTHERN NIGERIA

    by
    MAHMUD KAYODE ADEBAYO (Ph.D)*

    ABSTRACT

    The United Nations, international conventions and the Child Right Act recognizes that education is a basic human right that every child must enjoy. In a traditional society, there exists the degenerate belief that women are second class citizens. A woman is considered as a man's property or pleasure object. She is also considered as a machine meant to produce children. This situation has resulted in unfair treatment of women especially with regards to education. Girl child education has become a matter of concern to stakeholders in Nigeria. This work examines the concept of, and crucial issues in girl child education. It identifies socio-cultural patterns, religious misconceptions, poverty, teenage pregnancy and early marriage among others as factors militating against child education especially in northern Nigeria. The paper, using a human right approach, advocates for specific roles and eradication of all discriminations against women. It outlines promoting education, gender equality, marriageable age and empowerment as a way to effectively correct these institutional mal-practices. The paper concludes and recommends an urgent governmental policy through specific agencies in redressing this imbalance.
