Dr Yemi-Esan, who was flanked by the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, explained that paternity leave was approved for men when their wives are delivered of their new babies.

She said that the bonding was important to help the newly born or adopted baby properly bond with the father at the early period as the baby bonds with the other.
