• Charges children to go for vocational training.

As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to celebrate children’s day, marked every 27th of May, the member representing Idah Federal Constituency at the House of Representatives, Hon. David Idris Zacharias, has called on parents to take the education of their children seriously as it remains the foundation upon which every form of societal development is erected.

In a message to children in the constituency to commemorate the day, Zacharias said quality education, good home training and entrepreneurial orientation are basic legacies parents should bequeath their children to make them competitive all round.

He said although the global pandemic, Covid-19, has kept children away from schools for some weeks against their wish, parents should however, use the  period of the lockdown to monitor the activities of their children by spending more time with them.

According to him, “parents should ensure that the children keep good company to avoid negative peer pressure, noting that children are largely influenced by the kind of friends they keep.

“No child should go to bed hungry in our constituency, due attention must be given to the health of children across the local government and we should collectively do as part of our vision to our constituency stronger than other.

“It is time for you to interact closely and know the distinct characteristics of your children individually and go through their books to ascertain their level of intellectualism.”

The lawmaker urged all children to aim high, respect their parents, avoid social vices, maintain healthy life styles and remain good ambassadors of the constituency in all their dealings.

While wishing them a happy 2020 children’s day which could not be celebrated with the usual pomp and pageantry due to the outbreak of corona virus, Zacharias promised that like he has always done, investment in education such as provision of scholarship and other educational support programmes would be sustained.
