The Wife of Ekiti Governor, Mrs Bisi Fayemi, said that she was ready to work with Federal Government to reduce the number of vulnerable children in the state.

She said it would prevent them from getting involved in criminal activities.
Fayemi disclosed this on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti at a meeting with a delegation from The Presidency.

She said ”more attention would be given to the vulnerable children so that they could live a constructive and productive life.

She listed vulnerable children to include those out-of-school, orphans, homeless, migrants in farm steads and those with special needs.

Fayemi, however, said that the state government was ready to empower the children, provide them quality education and engage them in skill acquisition.

She noted that it was in line with values orientation which remained one of the five pillars of the present administration in Ekiti.

Responding, the leader of the team tagged “At Risk Children Programme”, Hajia Mariam Uwaise, said they were in the state to monitor existing similar programmes.

According to her, many of the vulnerable children have good potentials that are yet to be exploited.

Uwaise, also Special Adviser to the President on Social Investment, said ”government relied on collaborative efforts of stakeholders to bring up children in the right manner”.

Some of the stakeholders at the meeting, Onimesi of Imesi-Ekiti, Oba Olatunji Olatunde, representatives of faith-based organisations and voluntary organisations urged the government to get statistical data of the affected children in order to give them the required assistance.
