The vice chancellor of Chrisland University said the important role, the children occupied in a family cannot be over emphasised, reminding the parents that they have a lot to do in bringing their children up in the way of the Lord.
She noted that children not well trained would be the ones to sell all the properties acquired by their parents in future, stressing the need to offer quality education to our children who are the future of the country.
Prof. Babalola said Chrisland University, Abeokuta in Ogun State is a veritable tertiary institution for intellectual radiance and prosperous future for every Nigerian child.
According to her, celebrating the children’s day in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that led to a global learning disruption of unprecedented scale and severity, calls for parents to look inward and search for institutions where e-learning is promoted for their children, an advantage and the need to choose Chrisland University, which offers best facilities for e-learning.
