…Charges Rivers people to pray for peace

The wife of Rivers State Governor, Lady Valerie Siminalayi Fubara says the administration of her husband will continue to give priority attention to issues of children and youths in order to make life better for them.

Lady Fubara spoke at the maiden edition of Children’s Christmas party organised for children in the State which held at Government House in Port Harcourt on Tuesday.

The Rivers’ First Lady expressed delight for hosting Rivers children, which she described as future leaders of the State, and celebrated with them as part of activities to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.

In her words: “as part of the determination of the present administration of Rivers State, under the guidance of my darling husband, the welfare and well-being of our children and other Rivers people are paramount.”

Lady Fubara urged parents to continue to devote quality time to nurturing their children so that they can grow into becoming responsible citizens.

“As parents, we must continue to do those things that are right before God and man in bringing up our children for the benefit of the larger society.

“For us, we will continue to do our best to pray for peace in our State so that there will be accelerated growth and development for the benefit of the people.”

There was presentation of gifts to children and the event witnessed a mammoth crowd from the 23 LGAs and non indigenes
