Childrens Day: Ancient values still matter in life – Buhari rejoices with Nigerian kids

The ancient truths of integrity, honesty, knowledge, and hard work are the cornerstones of destiny, according to President Muhammadu Buhari, who on Saturday urged Nigerian parents and children to hold onto them despite the changing circumstances.

Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Advisor on Media and Publicity, revealed this in a statement.

“On this great day, we want to express our sincere gratitude to God for giving us another chance to enjoy our kids on May 27, 2023. Every Children’s Day serves as a reminder of the future and the contributions that parents, guardians, educators, leaders, and the government must make in order to preserve our greatest assets on earth, the YOUNGER ONES.

“I share in the happiness that children bring into our lives and the delight of watching them develop as a parent and a grandfather. Additionally, I can relate to the loss, worry, and frustration that come with uncertain times, such as the family disturbances brought on by insecurity, which we have made a concerted effort to prevent over the past eight years.

“We must not give up and must renew our faith in the government’s ability to protect our children’s and our future. In the past eight years, we have concentrated on children, securing the release of many people who were held captive and patiently gathering information on the location of others. By God’s grace, more will release; some have already.

The President advised parents to maintain their focus on discipline while treating their kids with respect.

“Every child is unique and deserves to be treated with respect.

“As this administration draws to a close, we are grateful for all the assistance we have received from parents, government representatives, development partners, professionals, and religious leaders in achieving some of our goals, such as the school feeding program, the revival of the primary health care system, and the protection of our schools by the security agencies.

As we all know, raising happy, healthy children is a shared duty. Like most of Africa, Nigeria places a high value on community involvement in a child’s upbringing. To truly nurture a child, a village is required. We must preserve our identity and values as the boundaries between cultures and cultural values gradually grow more hazy as a result of new technology. Integrity, honesty, diligence, and a love of learning are among our key values that cannot be compromised. The ancient markers of what is true and right at home and abroad should be known to our children, he continued.

For the sake of the children, the President highlighted that efforts should be focused on laying the foundation for continued unity, peace, and prosperity.

I still think that our youngsters hold the keys to a better future for Nigeria, with these three undeniable and unalterable truths: fear of God is supreme, love for knowledge is elevating, and hard effort will always pay off, despite the fact that I am over 80 years old and have served the country my entire working life.

God bless our children, and happy children’s day. Buhari congratulated the parents, kids, and guardians.
