Children’s Day : Educate your child, Rep Obasa tells Nigerian Parents

The lawmaker representing Ojo Federal Constituency in the lower legislative chamber, Hon. Tajudeen Obasa has urged every Nigerian Parent to do the needful and use all available strength‎ in educating their children/wards.

‎The Children’s Day is recognized on various days in different places around the world, in celebration of every child. It was first proclaimed by the World Conference for the Well-being of Children in 1925 and then established universally in 1954 to protect children working long hours in dangerous circumstances and allow all children access to an education‎.

In a statement released by his media aide, Mr Opeyemi Ahmed, the lawmaker described education as the ‎only means to cure ignorance, tackle social vices and build an independent individual in the future.

“It is well stated in the holy books ” Educate your child so that he or she will give you rest” The current trend of security challenges facing the nation can only be tackled with proper education. Many commit crime without knowing the negative effects of such to the society”

“For a nation to be great, the standard of education must be high both formally and informally. For Nigeria, all hands must be on deck to transform the educational sector”
