Lagos State governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode and his wife, Mrs Bolanle Ambode, yesterday, played host to more than 2,000 children across tribe, class and religion, stressing that everything should be done to make them happy, productive and fulfilled.

They urged the children to continue to listen to the counsel of their parents and guardians, saying it is by doing so that they can achieve their set goals and maximise their potentials.

The first Lagos family spoke at the Lagos House in Alausa, Ikeja, during the annual Christmas party organised by the state government for children in the state.

In his remarks, Ambode urged the children to continue to show love to their parents and families for the opportunity given to them to have a good life and prospective future.

“They are the ones that have been able to put you all in good condition and I urge you to continue to show love to your parents and make sure that the things they teach you, you take them seriously so that you can become successful lawyers, doctors, accountants, pilots and all the good things you wish to become in life.

“My prayer for you all is that you would all grow to be bigger and more prosperous than all of us.  I want to also thank the parents for keeping this children, God will continue to reward you,” he said.

On her part, Mrs Ambode charged the children to be obedient, humble, respectful and to take their studies seriously at all times if they intend to have a brighter and rewarding future.

She described children as jewels whose value cannot be estimated, urging parents to bring them up in the way of God and help them realise their full potentials.

She said, “These little ones are the unique gifts of the Almighty given to us to look after. Our duty assigned by God as guardians, is to ensure care and welfare that will make them grow up as happy children, productive and fulfilled citizens.’’

“No amount of investment in children can ever be too much towards a purposeful life for them. This annual Christmas party is to give them a feel of the Yuletide season and our prayer is that the presence of God will always be with them, to guide, protect and lift them to be productive and responsible citizens of our country.”
