Children's Day is celebrated on May 27 in Nigeria. It is a public holiday for Primary and Secondary school children. Due to the large size of the country, only few groups of children) are selected to march past parade. The children are usually given treats such as an outing or doing jobs that adults would normally do. In some situations, primary and secondary school children compete in military parades format for a prize which will be given at the end of the competition. Religious groups in Nigeria also celebrate children's day in grand style. Many private and public organizations usually put together children's party for privileged and less privileged children in a bid to give them a sense of belonging. It is also a day media organizations analyze the plight of children in the society and efforts government and non government agencies make to better the lot of children. On behalf of the African Youth Association of NGOs (AYANGO) Nigeria Chapter, I hereby extend my love, peace and grace upon each members of the Nigerian child who join its Local Government Areas to observe today children’s day in Nigeria. Once Again, congratulation to all teenagers, adolescent, and minus born here in or outside Nigeria. Once again, congratulation!
