Former Cross River Governor, Mr. Donald Duke has called for a reflection to build a society fit for children.

Mr. Duke stated this in a series of tweets in what appeared to be his 2018 children’s day message on Sunday.

He tweeted that: “As we wish Nigerian children a Happy Children’s day, it is imperative we work harder than ever to build a country they can be proud of.

“Nigerian children deserve to live in a country better than the one in which their parents and grandparents grew up. They are entitled to an excellent education that allows them compete with their peers all over the world.

“They deserve excellent healthcare, and the safeguarding or their rights. To know that anyone who assaults or abuses them will be punished to the full extent of the law, not shielded by the community.

“Nigerian children deserve equality of opportunity, the opportunity to dream far and wide. To be encouraged to nurture their skills, talents and interests and attain the highest levels possible in their career of choice.

“Happy Children’s Day to all Nigerian children. We will build a country you can be proud of.”

Children’s day is celebrated every year on May 27th in Nigeria and other countries.

The 2018 theme is: “Creating Safe Spaces for Children: Our Collective Responsibility.’’

The theme aims at calling on all stakeholders to work together towards ensuring that the society is not hostile to children, but creates platforms for them to grow.
