CHILDREN ARE THE MOST TREASURED POSSESSIONS ON EARTH, NANS CELEBRATE HER MEMBERS ON CHILDREN’S DAY.


Happy Children's Day Celebration.


Children’s Day is a day recognised to celebrate children. It is celebrated across the world though on various calendar dates in different countries.

In Nigeria, Children’s Day is celebrated on every 27th of May. It was established as a holiday in 1964, and it is a public holiday for Basic and Secondary Education Nigerian Students .

In commemorating this year’s day, The Deputy Coordinator of the National Association of Nigerian Students South West Zone, Comrade Oladimeji Uthman seized this opportunity to wish all Nigerian Students at the Basic and Secondary stage a Happy Children's day celebration.
The leadership of NANS South West Zone join every Nigerian Students in this year's children day celebration. We are grateful to the lord of Á luta for preserving our lives to witness yet another special day dedicated to celebration of Children around the world.

This day for the children is an opportunity for them to express themselves and be happy that they are at this age and time, but for the adult, it is a time of sober reflection.
Conventionally, it’s also a period marked with all kinds of social events and fun outings. Parents, management of basic and secondary schools, religious organisation, celebrities and various brands organize special programs to specially celebrate the children. It is however sad that this year has to be an exception because of the Novel disease ravaging the world. 

It is therefore pertinent that everyone adjust to this unpleasant but necessary trend of general restrictions and caution. Our members at the Basic and Secondary Education (Children) must also join in fight against this common enemy. We must do everything to preserve our life because we are the future. Hence, we must continue to consciously adhere to known guidelines and measures provided by the health practitioners as prevention is far better than cure in this period of COVID-19 pandemic and also against contacting the virus. 

* Always stay at home/Stay indoor
* Avoid crowdy places
* Frequent hand washing and sanitizing
* Use of nose mask and hand glove
* Social Distancing 
* General Hygiene etc.

Children are innocent, children bring smile to one’s face. One of the most treasured possessions on earth; children are loved by one and all. Thus, Children’s Day is celebrated to commemorate the healthy growth and happiness of children. So attention must be paid to their spiritual, physical, emotional, importantly, educational and social wellbeing. 

We also enjoin parents and guardians to be very responsible and compassionate at this time. Strive to create enablement for your wards to continue growing physically and academically. May the spirit of the season bring you all a succor for the burden.

In the light of this, National Association of Nigerian Students South West Zone (NANS Zone D) took advantage of this special day to celebrate and appreciate the giftedness of the children.
We assure you all that frantic efforts are being made by the leadership of NANS South West Zone to ensure the Government see to the timely reopen of all institutions/schools as this tends to be the most important thing at the moment.

We therefore charge all students to diligently continue with all other alternatives to 'in school' learning. This including digital classes been aired on various broadcast media and the online classes. The times are really trying but as children, you also have a part to play. 
It is a popular believe that children are the heritage of God and He heeds to their call faster than He does with the older people. Hence, children should all continue to pray to him for the healing of our lands.

“On the occasion of 2020 Children’s Day celebration, NANS calls on the Federal Government to refocus on public schools as the cradle of cultural, moral and academic formation of future leaders.”

Governments at all levels should ensure a comprehensive review of the public school system. We believe that Nigeria’s public schools could reclaim its lost and past glory if government at all levels take interest in the provision of critical infrastructure, capacity building for teachers and expansion of facilities to accommodate the growing population.





The NANS Zone D Deputy Coordinator described as distressing “the spiralling growth of private schools,” saying, in most states, the number of public schools remains stagnant, despite the increase in population of children in need of access to functional primary and post-primary education.

However, it is also sad and quite unfortunate that a day like this remind us of many children whose life has been lost to one incident or the other. Among such are those children whose life has been claimed by the venom of the ravaging COVID-19 virus, and also those children who were cut down in their prime by the men of Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) on two different occasions in the last few months in Ogun State.
We use this medium to make a clarion call to all relevant stakeholders and Government agencies to find justice for these innocent Nigerian Students who are to also celebrate this special day with their mates. Our heart goes to the parent and relatives of all the lost children. We pray the almighty God continues to comfort you.

_Until all are Freed,_
_All remain Slaves._
