Children’s Day celebration: Fashola advises pupils

Lagos State Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola  urged children to stay away from drug abuse, violence and other vices that can destroy their future and progress.

Fashola spoke yesterday when he addressed children at the Police College Ground as part of activities marking this year’s Children’s Day celebration.
He said it was important for children to desist from drug abuse, bad friends and sundry crimes that would be inimical to nation-building.

He said: “I urged you to stay away from all vices that can destroy your future. I want you to stay away from drug abuse, ignore bad friends who might want to introduce you to cultism, stay away from violence and bad gangs. But rather, you can join social and voluntary clubs such as Boys Brigade, Girls Guide and Sheriff Guard among others that have been created for you to mould your future.”

Fashola urged the children not to forget all the things that they have learnt through programmes initiated by his administration  such as the road safety rules and signs, traffic rules, the climate change rule to protect their environment and hand washing techniques, which helped the state to combat the Ebola Virus during its outbreak.

He added that the children should continue with the good habits to make Lagos State a better place for all.
