“Parents should instill discipline in their children, because, the society that we have is a reflection of the type of homes we have. Respectful children, children who obey the norms of the society, are desired at this point in our nation’s history,” the governor said.

He added, “I congratulate all fathers as they celebrate and I appeal to them to spend more time at home. They should know about what goes on in their homes, make corrections, because, well organised homes will lead to better organised society.”

Earlier in a sermon, Rt. Revd. Godfrey Ekpenisi, Bishop of Ika Diocese of the Anglican Communion, urged fathers to build peaceful and stable homes by instilling the virtue of honesty and accountability in their homes.
