The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, Atiku Abubakar and the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, have celebrated Nigerian Children on this year’s Children’s Day.

Both Atiku and Saraki took to their Twitter pages to recognise the great strides that children across the country have made.

They also assured the children that the government will make sure they are empowered to reach their full potential.

“Nigerian children have been in the international headlines recently for exceptional achievements despite all odds. These shining lights are just an example of the potential in you, our children. Happy Children’s Day,” Atiku wrote.

Saraki, on the other hand, twitted “Today, our nation celebrates it’s future — our children; our most important national treasure. As we do so, we recommit ourselves to ensuring that all Nigerian children are empowered to aspire to achieve greatness”.

The Senate President also called on Nigerians to remember Leah Sharibu and other missing children who for various reasons would not be spending the special day with their friends and loved ones.

“On #ChildrensDay2019, we remember Leah Sharibu, and all other young Nigerian children who will be commemorating this important day without their loved ones. We commit them into our prayers, and continue to call for their unequivocal release,” he wrote.

The Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and the Osun State Governor, Rauf Aregebsola, also celebrated with the Children.
