Children, Nigeria’s Most Important Treasure, Says Saraki

President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki on Monday described children as Nigeria’s most important treasure as a nation.

Saraki in a message to mark the 2019 Children’s Day, signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, felicitated with Nigerian children and urged leaders at all levels to recommit to the continuous empowerment of the Nigerian child. 

“Today, our nation celebrates its future — our children; our most important national treasure.,” Saraki said. “As we do so, we recommit ourselves to ensuring that all Nigerian children are empowered to aspire to achieve greatness.

“On this Children’s Day 2019, we remember Leah Sharibu, and all other young Nigerian children who will be commemorating this symbolic day without their loved ones. We commit them into our prayers, and continue to call for their unequivocal release.”

He noted that the 8th National Assembly worked assiduously to provide for primary healthcare fund in the budget as well as ensuring that the Child’s Rights Act is domesticated across the states of the federation. 

He said: “Over the last four years, the 8th  National Assembly has worked fervently towards ensuring the provision of basic primary healthcare and the domestication of the Childs Rights Act in all Nigerian states — so that young Nigerian Children can live healthy, violence-free lives. 

“Today,  we say to all Nigerian Children: “We stand with you. We are one!” Happy Children’s Day 2019.”
