CITAD Radio Calls for Action on Children’s Day: Every Child Deserves Quality Education

Today, as we join the world in celebrating Children’s Day, observed annually on May 27th, CITAD Online Radio wishes to extend heartfelt greetings and best wishes to all children across Nigeria. This year’s theme, “For every child, every right,” underscores the vital importance of ensuring that every child is given the opportunity to realize their full potential through access to quality education.

On this significant day, we draw the attention of parents across Nigeria to the crucial role they play in their children’s future. Education is the cornerstone of personal and national development, and we urge all parents to enroll their children in school. An educated child is better equipped to contribute positively to society and achieve personal success.

Moreover, we call on the Nigerian government at all levels to take immediate and substantial actions to support the educational sector. The following measures are essential to elevate our schools to a global standard and ensure every child’s right to quality education is met:

1. Provision of Adequate Teaching and Learning Materials: Schools must be supplied with the necessary resources, including textbooks, digital learning tools, and laboratory equipment, to facilitate effective teaching and learning.

2. Teachers’ Welfare: The welfare of teachers must be prioritized. Adequate remuneration, regular training, and professional development opportunities are crucial to maintaining a motivated and highly skilled teaching workforce.

3. Conducive Learning Environment: It is imperative to create and maintain safe, well-equipped, and conducive learning environments. This includes the construction and maintenance of classrooms, provision of clean water and sanitation facilities, and ensuring reliable electricity supply.

Aligning our educational institutions with global standards is not just an aspiration but a necessity in our rapidly evolving world. We call for a comprehensive approach to educational reform that includes modern curricula, integration of technology in classrooms, and adoption of best practices from successful educational systems worldwide.

As we celebrate Children’s Day 2024, let us reaffirm our commitment to every child’s right to education. By working together—parents, educators, government, and the community—we can ensure that every Nigerian child has the opportunity to succeed and thrive. Let us make this Children’s Day a turning point towards a brighter future for all our children.

Happy Children’s Day to all the wonderful children of Nigeria!
