Bayelsa, Timipre Sylva, stressed the need to
establish children’s parliament in the 36 states.

platform for the children to participate in national
development and prepare them as future leaders.
She added that it would give a voice to the youths
and inculcate in children the value of dialogue and
collective participation that would equip them for leadership roles.

She congratulated the executive members of FCT
children’s parliament for their victory at the April
elections in which more than 90 schools in the six
area council participated.

"This is a clear demonstration that our children have embraced the path to democracy which inevitably has been a course for governance. "No doubt, your political consciousnesses will be raised and eventually offer you the opportunity of being valued members of our society and future leaders of this great
country. "I appeal to you to respect
the rule and process of operating children’s parliament through which you can realise your dream,''

she said.

Speaking earlier, the Permanent Secretary, FCT
administration, Mr John Chukwu, said the
parliament was aimed at providing the children with a forum to participate in affairs affecting their country.
