Nigeria: Lagos First Lady Lauds Orphanage Association for Efforts to Protect Vulnerable Children

Her Excellency, Mrs. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu has commended the Association of Orphanages and Home Operators of Nigeria, ASOHON, for its effort, passion, zeal and commitment in contributing to a saner society which she said is the bedrock on which all the sectors of the economy stands.

Her Excellency, represented by Mrs Azeezat Tijani at the Lagos Collaborate+ 2023 edition, held recently at the youth church hall of Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju Lagos, added that the association’s commitment to raising the standard of care and protection of all vulnerable children in Nigeria is very commendable and crucial in curbing the rate of moral decadence and child neglect in our society.

“Your members assume the roles of caregivers, looking after the vulnerable members of the society even when their own immediate families are also in dire need of care and attention, this is indeed a selfless service to humanity.

Talking on the theme, “Strengthening Family Ties Through Unification”, Sanwo-Olu said when families come together and support each other, they create a strong foundation of love, trust, and understanding, which will help to build stronger relationships and fosters a sense of belonging and security within the family unit.

“Family unity is all about coming together, supporting one another, and creating lasting bonds. It’s about cherishing the moments we share, whether it’s through family dinners, game nights, or even just spending quality time together. By prioritizing these connections, we can strengthen our family ties and create a sense of belonging that lasts a lifetime”. She added.
