OSOGBO – Dr Sola Ajibade, the Head of African Languages Department, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, has enjoined parents to teach their children and wards good values.
He said the failure of families would automatically bring about the failure of the nation at large if nothing was done to address the anomaly.
“It is high time parents began to help the nation by being in firm control of the most important and sensitive political units, which is the family, and which plays a significant role in the stability of a nation.
“You will agree with me that every individual that either contributes positively or negatively to the development of the country must come from one home, and that is exactly what makes the institution very important.
“We have to re-arrange the societal order by re-shaping the world view of the younger generation through a comprehensive civic education at the primary and nursery levels,’’ he said. (NAN)
