Aisha Buhari wishes youngsters well on Children's Day

27 May 2015, 13:35Okoro Chinedu

Lagos - Aisha Buhari, wife of the President-elect, said the provision of education to children was among the top priorities of the incoming administration.

Buhari, who will assume First Lady status on Friday when his husband, Muhammadu, is inaugurated, stated this ahead of International Children’s Day.

Nigeria has joined the international community to commemorate the day that is celebrated annually on May 27.

“Education is going to be the main focus of the incoming APC government.
Our children are our future and education of our children is the best way to secure the future of our country,” she stated.

Buhari extended her best wishes to all children around the country on their special day.

She meanwhile called for the speedy implementation of the Child Rights Act.

While the Act has passed the National Assembly, several states have not adopted it.

According to experts, this landmark legislative achievement has not yet translated into improved legal protection throughout the Federation.

As such, Nigeria has been unable to deal with several issues hindering the protection rights of children such as children living on the streets, children affected by communal conflict, drug abuse, human trafficking and the weaknesses of the juvenile justice system amongst others.
