The wife of Atiku Abubakar, a former Vice President of Nigeria, has called on Nigerians to show love to every single child, irrespective of their tribe, tongue or creed.
Hajiya Titi Amina Abubakar made the call while speaking to journalists on Friday at the Children’s Day party for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) at the Kunchigoro IDP Camp in Abuja.
Represented by Mrs Veronica Umaru, coordinator of the world acclaimed Women Trafficking and Child Labour Eradication Foundation (WOTCLEF), she emphasised the great importance of education for all children.
“Education for all children is non-negotiable and that is the best legacy any family, community or government can give to the children. “The elite should channel some of their endowments to the education of children, particularly the less privileged/vulnerable children.
“We must bring up our children in the fear and knowledge of God,” she said, adding that when children are brought up in love,” then the future and development of our various families, communities and country is assured.”
