From the CEO’s Desk on Coronavirus

Good morning all,

I believe we are all safe and observing all necessary instruction.

This is the time to always check on love ones far and near.

At this period let us be careful what we post or share as many are just out there to be mischievous all in the name of playing pranks.

Ensure that you fact check all the post you want to share as this is period that we need sanity on our social media platforms.

The government should also ensure that they use all platforms to disseminate appropriate updates and not keep the citizens in the dark as this may cause more panic and more spread of fake news.

I still strongly believe that the ministry of humanitarian affairs and disaster management, NOA, States Ministry of Information and all media outfits should be fully engaged at this time to support the citizens so that they stay at home.

The next few days are very critical in the fight against COVID 19, please watch out for the wellbeing of children around you.

I hope religious bodies will also start thinking on how to support families and communities with foodstuff and basic essentials.

Together, we will overcome this pandemic and hopefully come out of it a better nation.

God bless you all.

End Child Labour

Teachers, Students, Community Child Labour Monitoring Committees (CCLMCs) and the Community Engagement Officers (CEOs) working on the Accelerating Action for the Elimination of Child Labour in the Cocoa Supply Chain – ACCEL Africa Project in Fagbo I & II communities in Ondo State had a market outreach yesterday to educate buyers and sellers from neighbouring communities on the dangers of child labour. One of the ACCEL Africa beneficiaries encouraged parents to send their children to school because Child labour only increases poverty. The ACCEL Africa Project has built the capacity of beneficiaries in communities where child labour was prevalent to become champions of the change they want. As we did commemorate the World Day Against Child Labour tomorrow, let’s not forget to take a stand against child labour and protect children around us so they can achieve their full potential and make our country great. #EndChildLabour #endchildlabournow
