The wife of Kwara State governor, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed, has called on parents and guardians to pay more attention to the education of their children and wards to secure their future.
Mrs Ahmed, who made the call in Ilorin in an interview with journalists, described education as a veritable tool for building a virile nation.
“Education, no doubt, is key to the survival of any nation and as such priority attention should be accorded it,’’ she said.
She also advised parents to give their children home training.
She said that home training was the basic requirement needed “to turn around the future of the child and society for good.
“There is need for parents to redouble their efforts in giving quality education and home training to their wards in order to make them useful to themselves and the society at large.
“The future of our children lies in how much love and concern we have for them and that behoves on us to discharge our responsibilities as expected.’’
She gave assurance that the education desk of her pet-project, LEAH Charity Foundation, would not relent in its responsibility to make education available to the less privileged in the state.
She solicited the support of wealthy individuals to assist the foundation to realise its objectives of charting a new course for the development of the society.
