…hosts Ekiti Children’s Christmas, end of year party

The wife of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Olayemi Oyebanji has called on parents to instill moral discipline and cultural values in their children which would portray them as good ambassadors of their various homes and the state.

Dr Oyebanji gave the charge when she hosted children from the 16 local government areas of the State at the 2022 End of the Year Children’s Party in Ado-Ekiti.

She charged the children to be obedient to their parents, teachers and elders in the community, stressing that an act of obedience is an appreciation for parental love and care they are enjoying.

The Governor’s wife admonished the children to concentrate on their education and make it their first priority, noting that they are the future leaders of the country.

On her part, the Deputy Governor, Chief Monisade Afuye congratulated the children on this year’s christmas celebration, urging them to be of good behavior during and after the season.

Speaking on behalf of the Speaker, Ekiti State House of Assembly Rt. Hon. Bunmi Adelugba, Hon. Hon Fawekun Babatunde advised the children to always be of good behaviour and shun every form of social vices that could mar their future.

The event featured choreography, dancing competition and talent show by the children.

Some of the children and parents who spoke with newsmen appreciated the First Lady’s kind gesture, and prayed God to give the Governor, Biodun Oyebanji, a successful tenure.
