According to her “children’s day celebration provides kids an opportunity to immerse themselves in several social activities expressing themselves in anyway they can among their peers, providing an ample opportunity to conscientize  stakeholders on important of proper parenting of children and for children to add a voice.”

“let me one more reiterate that children all over the world have the right to voice their opinion and areas of need, be heard and listen to, it is the duty of duty bearers and care givers of children to nurture them and help them actualize “. She said.

She called on the children particularly the girls to use the exercise  as a turning point to break the social norms and work hard to change their stories in education for better.

” I urge you to grow and run the agenda for children as you take responsible positions in governance, UNICEF Enugu is mandated to assist and encourage the children. She said.

 Direction of Administration, Enugu state Ministry of Gender Affairs Dr. Uzoamaka Okenwa Uzoechina,  called on the children to develop agenda they would work towards achieving and change the narratives.

She noted  that if the THEME of the symposium are carefully looked into by the stakeholders it would go a long way in reshaping Nigeria  in areas of corruption, rubbery and many other crimes such as prostitution.

Some of the participating students drawn from various  schools in their responses lauded the  State  government for passing the child’s right law but called the government to critically look into establishing and equiping medical  facilities in various schools in the state
