The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, has felicitated with Nigerian children as they commemorate this year’s Children’s Day, promising that the National Assembly will pay more attention to their needs.
The day is set aside to celebrate children and draw attention to issues affecting them.
The Senate President urged the authorities at all levels in the country to recognize the critical importance of issues that affect the Nigerian child’s well-being, happiness, and growth and prioritize their plans and actions.
“On the occasion of the celebration of this Day, I reassure the Nigerian children that the National Assembly will always accord their needs full attention in its legislative duties to make laws that protect and promote their rights.
“I also want to use the opportunity of the occasion to appeal to states that have not domesticated the Child’s Rights Act 2003 to do so in the best interest of the Nigerian Child.
“Let us all remain ever conscious of our duty to bring up our children with the right orientation and to bequeath them a peaceful and prosperous society,” Lawan said.
The Senate President wished Nigerian children a happy celebration.
