Minister of State for Education, Dr Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba has urged member nations of the Commonwealth organization to be more committed to the promotion of good governance, trade, equality, peace and empowerment of vulnerable groups using the abundant human and natural resources at their disposal.
The minister stated this during the commemoration of the 2021 Commonwealth Day in Abuja Monday.
Dr Nwajiuba said with the theme of this year’s celebration; ‘Delivering a Common Future: Connection, Innovating and Transforming,’ there was a need for the expansion of quality education to take care of the vulnerable groups using all forms of innovation.
He described as “Phenomenal” the trajectory of the Commonwealth family: from owing allegiance to the Monarch, removal of the term “British,” the attainment of independence, to co-existing as sovereign entities in the modern Commonwealth with Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II as the symbolic head for generations.
The minister, who tasked members to imitate the virtue of collaboration for common good, noted that the 54 Countries that made up the organization reflect the creativity and connectedness among members, adding that observing the Day exposes students to learn the culture, languages, national flags, dressing and mannerisms of member states.
Dignitaries who graced the occasion include the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Arc. Sonny Ochono, some member states’ High Commissioners to Nigeria as well as students.
