The commissioner explained that Human Right’s Day was set aside by the United Nations (UN) as an annual event to celebrate the fundamental proposition in the Universal Declaration that each one of us, everywhere, at all times is entitled to his/her fundamental human rights.

He implored Lagosians to join in the celebration of the day observed by the international community every year on December 10.

Ipaye said some of the highlights for this year’s celebration include essay competition for private and public schools and a keynote address by the Guest of Honour, Funmi Falana on “The Right of the Child.”
