To succeed today and in the future, the children will need to be inventive, resourceful and imaginative. If you believe in the creative future of our children, you will support and help increase resources for art education in Nigerian schools; such educational activities that will help our children to harness their God’s given talents and build the next generation of creative African leaders.

I will always support and get involved in projects and programmes that will give our children the platform to exhibit and improve on their innate talents, especially the arts. So, it was such a great honour to be invited in October by the Nigerian Conservation Foundation to be part of the member of jury for children Art competition for Primary and Secondary Schools in Lagos State. The art competition’s theme was “Voices from Slums” in celebration of the 2014 World Habitat Day.

The award ceremony-cum-exhibition was held on Thursday 30th October, 2014 at NCF Headquarters, Km 19, Epe-expressway, Lekki, Lagos in partnership with UNHABITAT FOR A BETTER URBAN FUTURE, and supported by MTN. It was a success.

 At the event I was honoured with a Distinguished Merit Award in recognition of my service to the success of the Art competition. This award is dedicated to my son, Prince Samuel Adeniyi and all the children of the world.

I will like to express my appreciation to NCF for such privilege to serve at this capacity and for the award. Thank you and God bless!
