Former Municipal Chief Executive of the Adentan Municipal Assembly, Hon. Alexander Nii-Noi Adumuah has urged parents and teachers to focus on instilling discipline in children, emphasizing that they are the future of our society.

Hon. Nii-Noi Adumuah made this call when delivering a speech at Mercy Islamic Primary School’s 20th Anniversary Speech and Prize Day on Thursday, 22nd February, 2024 which was aimed to recognize and appreciate the hard work of both the learners and teachers in the school.

The former MCE stressed the importance of teaching children to listen and practice what they are taught, as they are the investments of tomorrow. He highlighted that ensuring children are well-behaved now will lead to a positive impact on future generations.

He urged parents and teachers to work together to train and guide young minds, noting that children have a clean sheet in their minds that needs to be filled with the right values and principles. Adumuah emphasized that investing in discipline now will result in responsible and successful individuals in the future, who will carry forward the aspirations of society.

“Our future investment is what we see today. If these children turn out to be very right, I believe that, when we are very old, our children will be able to take the frontiers and be able to show that the full potentials of education are being realized in them. All of us have to put our energies together to train these young ones. They have clean sheets in their mind. What we put there is what will show fort in the future. If we don’t put the right thing, they will be indiscipline children in the future. If we put in the right thing, they will be disciplined, they will be forbearers, they will be carriers of our dreams into the future”
