Tinubu said the family is a place where the sacred values of honesty, modesty, hard work and charity are passed down to the shining lights of tomorrow. He affirmed that society is a reflection of each family unit as a collective, urging the preservation of those principles “that make us a wholesome, nurturing and thriving nation.”

The president said his administration was sparing no effort in ensuring that Nigeria’s children had a solid footing for the realisation of their dreams. He said this was being done through increased investments in education, and the recent overhauling of the entire education system to provide both human and material resources for learning.
