The main focus of this study was to find out the attitude of in-school adolescents in Eket Local Government Area, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria towards female genital mutilation. In order to achieve this goal a research questionnaire on the attitude of in-school adolescent were distributed in the area.
The data thus obtained were analyzed using simple percentage, t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA). Based on the findings, the following recommendations were made.
Female Genital mutilation has not been found to contribute in any positive way to health but threatens it. In spite of the complications associated with the practice some people still hold fast to it. It is obvious that this is a factor responsible for the perpetuation of this harmful practice in our society.
Considering the factors mentioned above, the following are suggested as measures to eradicate female genital mutilation.
There should be a clear-cut policy statement by the Federal Government to abolish female genital mutilation.
The media should be more involved in enlightening the public on the harmful effect of genital mutilation.
