PEJU Elizabeth Taiwo is a female singer, with the stage name, Easy Lizy. She is currently on a campaign to improve child education in the country. To this end, she has established a group, called the Community Initiative for Child Education (CICE).
CICE, according to the songstress, aims to sensitise Nigerians on the need to support and create educational programmes and extra-curricular activities that will enhance the overall development of children within the various communities. The group, she said, has organised several programmes in recent past, including an annual Children’s Day party.
Presently, Easy Lizy and her group are involved in annual free summer coaching for students; a programme which she said started about five years ago in Surulere Local Government Area of Lagos State, and coordinated by Honorable Ayo Adesanya.
The programme, she explained is designed to prepare the children for the new academic session, while also creating social interaction, friendship and communal integration. The inaugural edition in Isolo Local Government Area is presently going on at Gideon Comprehensive High School.
“The coaching, which commenced on 12th of August, will end on the 11th of September. We will have a funfair party on 12th of September to round off the exercise. Presently, CICE has Chi Limited, makers of Caprisone and Hollandia juice, who are supporting the event with their products. It also has a strong backing from Isolo Local Government. There are also top personalities who have shown their support towards the movement. They include Alhaja Kuburat Okoya, Dr Federick Fasehun and Oba Kabiru Agbabiaka (Osolo of Isolo) among others,” Says Easy Lizy.
