It was celebration galore laced with joy and fun for children who participated at the recent children’s Day event sponsored by Eden Hotels & Garden in Ota area of Ogun State.
The event tagged “Focus With Your Role in Life” was carefully packaged by Eden Hotels & Garden as a way to pass an important message to the youth on the need for them to be focused in life.
No fewer than 250 students from different schools across the state attended the event. Individuals and private organisations were equally present at the occasion.
Speaking with Travellers Magazine at the event, General Manager of Eden Hotels & Garden, Mr Peter Ovie said that the event was put together by his hotel to celebrate the children.
Beyond celebrating the children, Mr Ovie stressed that it was also a way to showcase their respective talents to the world.
Ovie said “We are not only celebrating them, but showcasing their talents. We want the world to understand that we have the capacity to celebrate our own”.
Expressing satisfaction with the turnout, the GM added “We went beyond what we promised and we have delivered. The first event was in 2019 and in this edition, we expected about 500 students to participate. However, we have half of that number today because we want to comply with Covid-19 protocols as directed by the government”.
Participants were in a very high spirit throughout the event as all that attended went home with special gift items.
A participant and the proprietress of Zulhaj Muslim Schools in Atan area of Ota, Mrs Olatundun Zulikha Folasade thanked Eden Hotels & Garden for their initiative of putting the children event together.
