He urged the children to stay committed to their goals, remain open to learning and growth, and continue to inspire positive change in their different communities.

The release partly read, “As we celebrate this year’s Children’s and Youth Day, I want to acknowledge and appreciate the boundless potential, creativity, and resilience that each young Abian embodies. Indeed they are the future leaders, innovators, and change-makers of our great state and nation.

“In line with the theme of this year’s celebration,”Protecting the Nigerian Child from the Dangers of Online Technology”, I want to encourage young Abians to be circumspect about their internet activities, applying wisdom and tact in chosing and picking which sites and social media platforms to interact with. 

“As the full embodiment of the aspirations and promise of a greater and better Abia, I encourage Abia youths  to  keep shining, keep striving, knowing that they have the support and belief of the older generations ahead of them”.
