‘We May Not Be Able To Host Our Children In Celebration Of This Year's Children's Day’ -Lolo Chioma

Earlier yesterday, Barr.(Mrs.) Chioma Uzodinma, First Lady and wife of the Imo Governor, disclosed that the annual Children's Day celebration that comes up every 27th of May(today), will not hold at the Government House in Owerri due to the current security challenges in the state. The decision was reached during the meeting she had with the various Imo State Local Government Chairpersons who were led to her office by the wife of the IMC Chairman of Oru-West LGA, Mrs Chizoba Okolieogwo, on May 25, 2021,

However, she urged them to summon the kids at the various Primary and Secondary Schools; and Orphanage homes at the various local governments to celebrate and smiles on their faces.

She also mentioned that the highlights of the event must include spelling bees, reading competition, sharing of school materials and speeches on value of life, good morals, safety precautions and patriotism, while she will liaise with the relevant authorities to see to the funding of the initiatives.

Imo state has been under the attacks of Unknown gunmen and members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), for months now. The attacks have led to the killing and capturing of some members of the ESN and their commander, which further wrecked havoc in the state by the avengers.

So, with this kind of situation in the state, it is in the best interest to cancel this event. See the screenshots below to read some reactions from people:
