Anambra State Commissioner for Women’s and Children’s Affair, Mrs. Ndidi Mezue said Children as future leaders should be properly taken care of.
In a statement in Awka on the 2021 Children’s Day Commissioner Mezue called on parents and care givers to always invest in the education of their children especially the girl Child to equip them effectively for leadership roles.
Mrs. Mezue regretted the high rate of child abuse and labour in the society, saying that Anambra State Ministry of Women and Children’s Affair is currently collaborating with relevant agencies and stakeholders to check the ugly trend.
She used the opportunity to charge parents and care givers to monitor closely the kind of company their children and wards keep in order not to bring shame to their various families.
Mrs. Mezue commended Governor Willie Obiano and his wife Dr. Ebelechukwu, for all their Programmes aimed at improving the living standards of the people especially Women and Children praying God to always guide, protect and bless them.
