The Governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State, Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo has felicitated with children in the state on the occasion of this year’s children’s day celebration.
This was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Lokoja.
The APC Governorship candidate commended children in the state for their exemplary conduct in academics and extracurricular activities which he noted have brought honours to the state over the years.
Ododo who stressed that children are the greatest gift from God and deserve to be celebrated everyday, called on the people to use the children’s day celebration to reflect on the condition of out-of-school children and other children living in deprivation across the country.
He assured that the achievements of the state government in human capital development through investments in education, vocational training and sports will be sustained if he wins the November 2023 governorship election in the state.
While urging children in the state to remain steadfast in their pursuits as pupils and students, the APC Governorship flag bearer praised parents, teachers and guardians for their roles in moulding the next generation of leaders in the state.
He further promised that he will ensure that every child in Kogi state is given equal opportunity through quality education, decent living condition and safety wherever they may be in all parts of the state if he becomes the Governor of the state.
