Favour Benson, Managing Director of Touching Heart Foundation, has urged the government to make provisions towards the development of children to enable them compete at world stage.

She stated this in commemoration of the 2023 Children’s Day, themed; “Investing in our future means investing in our children”.

“The present dispensation has not fared too well in the area of investing in our children”, she added.

In her thought, the children are the future of any great society and should be nurtured and prepared for the task ahead.

” Looking at the theme of this year’s children’s day ‘Investing in our future means investing in our children’ it is important that the parent nurture the children to set them in the right part of the future they deserve, the society is now giving a wrong ideology about life but it is our duty to train the children in the right path by becoming the best role models they can have.” She said

She also retraited the need for the government to provide the basic infrastructural development for children to enable them to compite with counterparts in the world stage.

” The government should provide endeavour look into children development policies that will help project the children into the future. Looking at countries like China and other, Nigeria should start thinking on how to direct the children’s interest towards technology and brain developing activities.” She concluded.

Children’s Day, which is celebrated in Nigeria on May 27 annually, is dedicated to celebrating children all over the world and for adults to remember their childhood experiences. The excitement of the day is palpable as it’s a special day to recognize, honour, celebrate, and appreciate children.

World Children’s Day was first established in 1954 as Universal Children’s Day and is celebrated on 20 November each year to promote international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide, and improving children’s welfare.
