Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde, has celebrated children in Oyo State on the occasion of the 2020 Children’s Day.
The Governor, who spoke through the Executive Chairman, Oyo State Universal Basic Education Board, Dr Nureni Adeniran, prayed for God’s protection on all children in the State.
The Governor charged the children to be good ambassadors of the State and their parents. He also urged them to shun evil and be of good behaviour so that that they can have a brighter future.
He noted that the present reality caused by the novel Coronavirus outbreak has impeded any funfair the State government may have planned for the children.
Governor Makinde reassured the children of the State government’s commitment to fulfilling its promise of a better and prosperous future for children through free and quality education.
He, therefore, called on parents to play significant roles in sharpening the future of their children and wards, noting that the task of training up a child should not be left to government alone.
