Due to moral decadence and increase in criminal activities in the country, the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed has appealed to parents to instill family values in their children in order to save Nigeria from degeneration.
She made the appeal on Saturday in Kaduna during a stakeholders’ engagement with 77 district heads, religious and community leaders from the 23 Local Government Areas of Kaduna State, NAN reports.
The Minister said, “We are calling the attention of parents that we have failed our children in the sense that the kind of values we use to have is no more.
“We need to remind ourselves that our children need to be upright and that this criminality going on, on daily basis, is not for their benefits and the benefit of the state and country.”
Ahmed further commended the Kaduna state government in managing security issues in the state.
According to her, the Federal Government has created a N75 billion entrepreneurship support fund, to enable youths in the country grow their businesses and be economically independent.
The Minister explained that the fund would support the youth to actualize their innovative and entrepreneurial ideas.
