The Wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, said on Saturday that the federal government would continue to attach importance to the welfare, protection and development of Nigerian children.

The first lady made the remark at the Children’s Eid El-Fitri Party (Sallah Party) she hosted at the Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa, Abuja.

She explained that the Sallah party was an indication of the importance the administration of her husband attached to children.

She urged the children to be useful to the society and compliment the efforts of the government by working hard in their schools and also to be obedient to their parents.

"Tomorrow, you may be the president, the president’s wife, senator, honourable members, governors, medical doctors, teachers, journalists, engineers, nurses, lawyers and other professions,’’ she said.

Aisha also advised the children to respect and obey their parents, teachers and elder people in the society.

"Make sure you assist your parents by tidying up the house all the time. As the holiday comes, enjoy it but remember to study your books and avoid bad companies,’’ she said.

She added: "On occasion like this, we celebrate with Nigerian children especially the less privileged and the Internally Displaced Persons’ (IDPs) in different camps. We love, appreciate and share in their situation.’’

She urged Nigerians to pray for children in IDPs and orphanages across the country to overcome their challenges

Aisha appealed to Nigerians to support the Buhari administration to enable it excel in its efforts to better the lot of Nigerians.

Highlight of the occasion was dancing and presentation of gifts to the children, among others. (NAN)
