The 2023 theme of the Day of the African Child is in tandem with our agenda for the children of Enugu State.

‘We are not only committed to taking head-on those imped­iments that hinder Enugu chil­dren from enjoying their full rights as outlined by the 1959 United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child, the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Child’s Rights and Responsi­bility Law of Enugu State, our Cut-off early child learning pro­gramme will also expose Enugu children to quality digital and vo­cational education, which they need to thrive in the contempo­rary and future global economy and its attendant competition.

‘We are committed to making education not only attractive, qualitative, free and compulso­ry for every child, we will make digital and vocational education compulsory for every child and the youth to equip them for the emerging Enugu and global economies.

‘We want to ensure that they are able to easily fit into the world of robotic science, artifi­cial intelligence, virtual reality, augmented reality, mechatron­ics, e-commerce and Fintech that would give them an edge over others’ Mbah stated.

He went on to wish Enugu and Afri­can children a happy 2023 Day of the African Child.
