Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, Nigeria’s first lady, has stated that obtaining a quality education is critical to the country’s future peace and prosperity.
Mrs Tinubu stated this in Abuja on Wednesday during a ceremony commemorating the 2024 World International Day of Education (WIDE).

This year’s celebration has the theme “Learning for lasting peace”.

“This year’s theme is apt for a time like this. I am convinced that building a more peaceful future rests on our readiness to pursue quality education.

“As an educationist, I recognise education’s crucial role in achieving gender equity. Education is the bedrock of a truly peaceful society.

“Education transforms hearts and minds. It requires equipping our children with knowledge, values, and skills that foster not only academic excellence but also empathy, tolerance, and respect for our diversity.

“On this International Day for Education, let us embrace transformative learning and invest more in inclusivity that instils in our children the values of peace and tolerance.

“This is necessary to build a Nigeria of peace, progress and prosperity for us all.”
