Gbajabiamila, in a statement by his spokesman, Lanre Lasisi, said Nigerian children had a lot of potential that must be carefully harnessed through good education and training.

He said the country cannot set aside May 27 every year to celebrate children without taking decisive action to better their lives.
The Speaker, therefore, said all policies, including legislative framework, must be put in place to give qualitative education to Nigerian children to r He stated that the House, under him, would stop at nothing in supporting any policy that would promote the rights of the Nigerian child, including their inalienable right to a good education.
