Governor’s Wife, Humanitarian Affairs Minister Preach Humanity On Children’s Carnival

By Godwin Otang

The wife of the Governor of Cross River State, Mrs. Eyoanwan Otu, and the Honorable Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Dr. Betta Edu on Wednesday, December 27th, flagged off the 2023 Children’s Carnival and called for love for one another.

In her remarks, the governor’s wife reiterated the commitment of Senator Bassey Otu’s administration to the well-being and development of children, as she urged them to embrace their dreams and reach for the stars.

 “Children are the future of any great nation and what we have to do is to encourage them with values of the society and give them what it takes to add value to their lives.

“We are here to expose them to the things they really require in life. We are here to encourage the children to come out and enjoy themselves and give them all we have that would be of value to them in the future,” she said.

The Minister, Dr. Betta Edu, said it is indeed an opportunity to preach humanity as there is nothing greater than being humane to another person. Positing that “it is bigger than religion or anything else. Showing love, compassion, and kindness to others are what I believe this carnival represents.”

Edu advocated for an end to wars around the world and Nigeria in particular, noting “As a nation, as a people, we raise a voice for humanity, to say that we should bring an end to every war, massacre, every uncalled for killing everywhere around the world and in Nigeria.

“We must be our brothers’ keeper and we must value what God has given to us, which is life. So, do not take another one’s life and be humane in everything you do for this is the humanity carnival,” she urged.
