Live Abundantly Empowerment Initiative Celebrates Children’s Day with the Children of Ijebu Ife Local Government
Children’s Day this year was never the same for the children of Ijebu Ife Local Government in Ogun State as a non-government organisation, Live Abundantly Empowerment Initiative connected with the children in a most exciting way to make the day memorable.
The celebrations held at the Ajalorun Palace in Ijebu Ife. In attendance were the Deputy Governor of the state, government agencies, captains of industry, traditional rulers, religious leaders, parents, teachers and residents of the community. Everyone gathered to celebrate with the children drawn from both private and public primary and secondary schools within the local government.
The August occasion featured several interesting packages ranging from drama presentation, a ventriloquist performance, spoken words, health talks, amongst others.
The keynote speaker, the Deputy Governor, Mrs. Yetunde Onanuga, while giving her address, commended the organisation for complementing government’s efforts at developing children.
The founder, Dr Ama Onyerinma, who was elated by the turn out and feedback from the children, also encouraged the children to learn beyond the classroom and apply whatever they were taught to daily living. She also encouraged them to stand up for their rights in any situation they found themselves.
