In a stakeholders’ meeting with 77 district heads, religious and community leaders from the 23 Local Government Areas of Kaduna State on Saturday October 31, Zainab Ahmed, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, raised an alarm over parents failing their wards by not imbibing the same values they used to have in them.
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.”
On the issue of security in the country, the Minister appreciated the Kaduna state government for managing security issues in the state. She also disclosed that the federal government has created a N75 billion entrepreneurship support fund, to enable youth in the country grow their businesses and be economically independent.
