Lagos, Dec . 2,2019 Queen Naomi Ogunwusi, Wife of Ooni of Ife, has urged Nigerian parents to instill Godliness in their children to promote a healthier society, aside education.

“Parents should train their children in the way of the Lord to promote a sane society.

“A child can have masters, PhD or even professor, but if he or she has no knowledge of God, it is stupidity.
