Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has stressed the need for investment in children, describing them as the future of the economy.

The governor said this while speaking at the 2018 National Children’s Day celebration, with the theme, “Creating Safe Spaces for Children: Our Collective Responsibility”, held today at the MKO Abiola International stadium, Kuto, Abeokuta.

According to him, any nation that wants to progress must invest in its children, as they are the future of the economy, adding that they must be well nurtured and guided.

Amosun, who advised the children to be of good behaviour, character and integrity, in their schools and homes, said “these attributes would make you great in life.”

He also enjoined them to shun acts, capable of bringing the names of their parents and their schools to disrepute.

The governor charged all parents, guardians, teachers, and other stakeholders to be true and positive role models to their children and wards, noting that their greatness in life is the collective responsibility of all.

While enjoining Nigerians to give their full support to the President Muhammadu Buhari led government, Amosun assured that Nigeria will soon overcome this trying time.

Tough times, he stated, don't last, but tough people do, he said, assuring that the president is committed to salvaging the economy.
