Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has come out to celebrate with Nigerian children on this year’s Children’s Day.
Ahmad recently revealed that the day is meant to highlight the realities of kids in a society with an aim to enhance their well-being and happiness now and for the future.
According to him, the only way to guarantee a happy and fulfilling future for our kids is by providing them quality education, healthcare while safeguarding them from all kinds of abuse.
He added that it is unacceptable that Nigeria is still battling with a high number of out-of-school children because it is a big danger for the nation.
His words, “I want to use the opportunity of this occasion to assure our children that the National Assembly is fully aware of the challenges that they face and will continue to work to guarantee them and our country a better future.
“I also call on the authorities at the sub-national level who have not done so, to domesticate the Child Rights Act for the sake of the future of our children.”
