Child Rights advocate and Little Miss Nigeria International, Queen Toluwanimi Omole, has called on all Nigerian children to share their Covid-19 lockdown experience. The call is in a minute video shared on her Instagram, Facebook and twitter pages.

In the one minute video, titled; ‘#SharewithQueenTolu’, Toluwanimi challanges Social media users to make a short video of their kids, sharing their lockdown experiences, how they are utilizing it, and what new knowledge they are getting to prepare themselves for the post Covid-19 world.

The video which captured Vanguard’s attention, led to a contact with her. Sharing the intent of making the challenge, she said

“The purpose is to ensure that Nigerian children also have adequate knowledge of the novel covid-19 pandemic. Because of the challenge, they will be moved to study and make more findings about the disease, which will definitely improve their knowledge base about the virus, liand help them stay safe, and possibly educate others about it.’
