Addressing Prevalence of Prostitution in Nigeria through Non-Formal Education Provisions


The prevalence of prostitution in Nigeria has called for concern of governments, NGOs, scholars and professionals including adult educators. This paper examined the prevalence of prostitution in Nigeria, its causes, as well as its effects on the prostitutes, their patrons and the lager society with a view to exploring how adult and non-formal education provisions can be used to address the menace. The paper concludes that non-formal education provisions such as vocational skill acquisition, moral education, literacy education, public enlightenment, anti-trafficking campaign and rehabilitation education can go a long way in addressing the prevalence of prostitution in Nigeria.
