Omisore calls for private sector investment in Nigerian child
Former Deputy Governor of Osun State, Senator Iyiola Omisore, has called on the stakeholders, particularly members of the Corporate Nigeria, to come to the aid of Nigerian child.
Omisore equally urged parents and guardians to pay serious attention to their children and wards and protect from abuse and violence by both internal and external predators.
“These children,” according to him, “are our tomorrow. They are the future of this country. That is the reason we must be conscious of their physical and cognitive development and protect them from physical and mental abuse and exploitation. Parents must not allow the present economic reality to overwhelm the serious roles of teaching morals to their children and guiding them on the right path,” he stated.
Noting that the government alone cannot shoulder the responsibility of catering for the need of its massive youth population against the current piteous state of the economy, the former Chairman, Senate Committee on Appropriation, called on Corporate Nigeria to invest in the education and development of the Nigerian child.
“It is our bounden duty to and in the interest of stakeholders in the private sector to invest heavily in future generation. It will be to their advantage if they do so tomorrow, because they will be sure of the quality of manpower and technocrats that will shape and change the face and determine the fate of our children, our country in future.”
