As Nigeria joins other countries to felicitate children today, the House of Representatives candidate of the New Nigeria Peoples Party in Oluyole Local Government, Princess Aderonke Rahmat Adedoja has advised parents to teach children good behavior and instill in them high moral values.
She said this in a message to congratulate children on the occasion of this year’s Children’s Day celebration.
Adedoja, the Chief Executive Officer of, the ARA Foundation, described children as ‘tomorrow’s glory across the globe who plays important role in society.
According to her, It’s important to recognize the rights of the children and protect them to the last as those using children for cannon fodders and other noxious works like trafficking, abusing among others should be apprehended and dance to the tune of the law.
Nigeria’s government and the international community should utilize this celebration to introduce a treaty that will punish anyone culpable of trampling upon children’s rights.
Street hawking and child trafficking should be abolished absolutely from Africa Society, and drop-out children should be catered for by the government. We know in their hands future lies. They will certainly give back to society the way they nurtured.
Happy celebration to our delightful children across Nigeria and in the diaspora.
