Your future is our concern, says Dickson
As Bayelsa children joined their counterparts all over the world in celebrating children’s day, the state government has promised to continue to give massive attention to all issues that concern their welfare of as they grow adulthood.
The Children’s Day celebration was coming just few hours after the rescued abducted 14-year-old girl, Ese Oruru, gave birth to a baby girl yesterday.
The minor, whose baby girl was described as ‘divine’ by the wife of the Bayelsa State governor, Dr. (Mrs.) Rachael Dickson, was delivered at the Government House Clinic by a medical team led by Dr. James Omietimi and Monica Osamende.
Mrs. Dickson was the first person to visit Ese and her baby at the clinic where she assured that the state government would take adequate care of Ese and ensure her early return to school.
In a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Jonathan Obuebite, the state governor, Seriake Dickson, emphasised the importance of quality education and what its holds for the Nigerian child.
He noted that his recent signing into law of the Child’s Right Bill was a major step towards ensuring that the rights of children are no longer violated and an indication of the commitment of the restoration government towards having a secured future for children in the state.
