The First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, on Wednesday in Abuja hosted Nigerian children to a party to mark this year’s Children’s Day celebration.
Mrs Jonathan said the occasion was her last party that would be celebrated with the children and youths in the Presidential Villa.
She also used the occasion to thank them for their respect and love to her during her tenure in office.
However, the first lady enjoined them to be good and obedient children to their parents and remain patriotic to the nation.
Mrs Jonathan expressed confidence in the ability of Nigerian children to excel, adding that the future “is bright” for them.
Some of the children who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) said they will miss Mrs Jonathan.
“Mummy Peace is very like-able and generous; she is always smiling and those are some of the things we will miss,” Ms Marissa Okorie said.
On his part, Master Bolaji Oguns, said: “I like the way she dances and plays with us whenever we come to the Villa for parties; I pray the new first lady will be dancing with us and giving us gifts during party.’’ (NAN)
