Children’s Day celebration with less fanfare as a sign of concern for the abducted school girls in Chibok, Borno.

Governor Willie Obiano, gave the directive in statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Chief Tony Onyima in Awka.

“This is a mark of solidarity with the over 200 female students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno, abducted by the Boko Haram Sect last month.”

The governor said that the traditional match-past by school children, had been shelved.

He enjoined heads of primary and secondary schools to instead, hold special prayer sessions in their schools for the release of the girls.

He further enjoined all churches in the state to conduct special prayers for the immediate release of the kidnapped school girls, and for an end to terrorism in the country.

May 27 is set aside by the United Nations to remember and celebrate children across the world.

It is also a day to reflect on the importance of children as leaders of tomorrow and what the future has in stock for them.
