As the world marks international fathers day, the Senate Chief Whip, Dr. Orji Uzor Kalu has congratulated fathers across the country, calling for a reflection on family values.
The Senator representing Abia North in a release he personally signed on Sunday said in view of the growing insecurity in the country, fathers must begin to pay attention to the whereabouts of their children and what they are doing at each moment of the day.
He also prayed God to continue to give fathers grace to discharge their duties in the household.
He said, “As Christians all over the country celebrate Father’s Day, I join the host of heavens to celebrate all Nigerian Fathers today.
“In the midst of challenges, you have remained resolute, as responsible Father’s to your families and community.
“I understand the challenges fathers face, but I have absolute faith in God Almighty, that he will continue to give all fathers the grace to continue to lead, guide and provide for their families.
“A father is a father, irrespective of religious affiliation, so let all fathers, irrespective of your faith key into today’s celebration and use today to reflect where their children are, and what they are doing, especially with the current security situation in the country today.
“A great nation starts from the family, and the father is the head”.
