The Nigerian Army Officers Wives Association (NAOWA), 1 Division chapter, Kaduna, on Saturday hosted an end-of-year party for children from barracks within the division’s area of responsibility.
The Chairperson, Mrs Jamila Mukthar, said the party was organised to put smiles on the children’s faces, ahead of Christmas and New Year celebration.
“We are gathered here today to celebrate our children, because they are leaders of tomorrow.
It is always a dream of every parent to see their children happy,” she said.
Mrs Mukhtar thanked the Nigerian Army and the NAOWA National President, Mrs Salamatu Yahaya for their continuous support.
One of the children from Dalet barrack, ThankGod Fidelis, said he was happy especially because of the pastries he was given to eat and gifts to take home.
Another child, Salim Abdullahi from Ribadu Cantonment, said he enjoyed himself very well, especially the sweet music and dancing competition.
It was a joyous event and I look forward to more of such in the coming years, Abdullahi added.
The party featured dancing and singing competitions, quiz and presentation of gifts to the children.
