Stay True To Shaping Destinies, Tinubu Charges Fathers

By Sunday Etuka, Abuja

President Bola Tinubu has enjoined Fathers in the country to stay true to their commitments of positively shaping the destinies of those to whom the future belongs.

Tinubu noted that the Fathers have in no small measures contributed to shaping the destiny of the nation by their sacrifice, forbearance, provision, protection, presence, and guidance of the young ones to the noble and true path.

This forms part of his message to the Fathers as they celebrate this year’s International Father’s Day, according to a statement issued on Sunday by his Spokesperson, Chief Ajuri Ngelale.

According to the statement, the President saluted all fathers, the sung and the unsung, who brave the toil of the day and the soreness of the night to provide for their families, describing them as true heroes.

Tinubu stated that Father’s Day, with origins far deep into the Middle Ages, and official roots in West Virginia, the United States, where an event was held in 1908 to celebrate 362 men who died in an explosion at a coal mining company, is significant for its purpose as a day set apart to honour all fathers – living, deceased, and paternal figures.

He affirmed that society is in better stead with fathers who rise to the great demand of responsibility, guiding the children through the vagaries of existence and preparing them for the future, as well as bequeathing to them pristine values that money or material comfort cannot provide, but only by personal example of discipline, integrity, service, respect, love and allegiance to the nation.
