The Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts, Mr. Agboola Dabiri has stressed the need for residents in Lagos to live in peace and harmony.
Dabiri spoke at the fourth edition of a special programme tagged “Echoes from Tinubu Square” to enlighten and educate school children from primary and post-primary schools in Lagos on the achievements and virtues of past heroes and heroines in the country.
The Special Adviser, represented by the Assistant Director, Human Resources and Administration, Mrs. Adegelu Margaret Modupe said that it is important that the virtues of our past leaders are inculcated in our children through regular teachings in schools, homes and public events.
He maintained that “the main idea and focal point of this event is to create positive interaction among students of public schools in Lagos and constantly educate our children on the need to live in peace and harmony” suggesting that teachings on the achievements and virtues of past leaders in the country should be built into school curriculums for students to have a good grasp of our history.
Dabiri noted further that parents of school children in Lagos are from diverse tribes, cultures and social backgrounds and it is imperative therefore to make the students realise that living in harmony is essential for national unity and progress.
‘Echoes from Tinubu Square’ is a monthly programme initiated by the Office of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Central Business Districts to keep the Tinubu Square busy as well as provide a platform to educate students from public schools on the achievements of Nigeria’s past heroes.
