PRESIDENT BUHARI




At the children's day celebration President Buhari assured that good health and well-being of Nigerian children remained top priorities on his agenda. President Buhari gave the assurance in his message to the children on the occasion of 2016 Children’s Day celebration.
He stated that an allocation of N12.6 billion had been made in the 2016 budget for vaccines and programmes to prevent childhood killer diseases, such as polio, measles and yellow fever. He also stated that the school feeding programme articulated in the budget for children which, he said, would cost N93.1 billion, would ensure that more children went to school.
He said: “I seize the opportunity of this year’s celebration, which comes just two days before the first anniversary of the present administration, to reassure our children and youth that we remain fully committed to fulfilling our promise of a better Nigeria for all of our people. “On this happy occasion for our children, I reaffirm my belief that it is the right of every Nigerian child to have access to quality and affordable education, as well as healthcare and other basic necessities for a good life, in a peaceful and secure environment.
