Press Release : Children’s Day Celebration

Association of Humble and Obedient Youths (AHOY) Implores the government to take children education more seriously.

As we celebrate the children’s day in Nigeria today, The Association of Humble and Obedient Youths (AHOY), celebrate with children in Nigeria and across the globe.

Children’s day is a special day dedicated to celebrate children and more importantly, to educate the public on issues of concern and to mobilise political will and resources to address those issues.

As such, AHOY, would like to cease this opportunity to advise parents to foster a conducive environment for children at home and also be a positive role models. It is believed that, this will help in the development of a child into becoming a good human being in the future.

According to unicef Nigeria, about 10.5 million children are not in school in Nigeria. This is not in line with article 28 of UNCRC which states that “all children, no matter where they live or what their circumstances, have the right to quality education”.
