Interior Minister, Aregbesola Admonishes Parents On Children Upbringing



Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has called on teachers and parents to be more committed to upbringing of children for a better society following the high rate of cultism, drug abuse and ritual killings among the youths in the country.

Aregbesola, who made the call on Friday in Akure, the Ondo state capital while hosting the 1975 set of his secondary school, Akoko Anglican Grammar School Arigidi Akoko said bringing children in good manner would go a long way in taking good care of youths prevent vices and any wrong doings in the society.

According to him, “what is obviously lacking is insufficient parental guardiance. Let us address parental issues, parents must be encouraged to properly groom their children and grooming is not just about discipline, it goes beyond that. It involves correcting any vices, malpractices, misbehaviours among others.

“When parents are sensitive to what their children need to the company they keep, definitely we are going to have well groomed and disciplined children.”

Aregbesola, who also spoke on his Alma matta said, “I’m joining the other old students to see how we can support, develop, fund the effort of the government in making our Alma-mater functional for the current students.

“It is obvious now that the government alone cannot attend to the needs of those institutions, particularly in terms of good infrastructure and this led me to join my other old students to support and assist in providing infrastructure and rehabilitating the old structure at once and to motivate the current students.

President of the 1975 set, Olaitan Ayeni, who also commended Aregbesola for his support in making the school well equipped, urged him to continue to contribute his quota to the development of education in the country.
