Children’s Day: Be good ambassadors, Ighodalo urges children

Dr. Asue Ighodalo, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate for the September 21 governorship election in Edo State, has urged children to become worthy ambassadors for their families, communities, Edo State, and the nation.

In a goodwill message issued on Monday by his media team in Benin City, Ighodalo emphasized the importance of raising children with the awareness that they represent their families and the larger community.

“On this auspicious occasion of Children’s Day, I rejoice with all of you, our dear children, who are our hope for a better tomorrow and society.

“When we look at you, we feel so happy and blessed. You are destined to be your family’s and community’s ambassadors. As parents, we are determined to help you play this role effectively every day as you grow up.

“I must emphasize that you need three things to succeed in this. First, be a disciplined child. Second, be respectful, and third, be ambitious. I sincerely believe that if you follow these three principles, you will grow to be the man or woman your family, community, and state will be proud of.

“As for us, we are determined to ensure that we do everything possible to help you to fully realise the enormous potential in each of you. Trust me on this.

“Thank you for adding so much joy and hope to our lives. Have a wonderful Children’s Day,” Ighodalo said.
