Buhari explains how his wife, Aisha has been helping to improve the lives of Nigerians
Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has explained how his wife and the first lady of the country, Aisha Buhari has been helping to improve the lives of Nigerians.
This explanation was made by the president in the forward of the biography of the first lady’s book which was launched on Thursday.
President Buhari said the book had given him an opportunity to say a few words about his wife.
He said Aisha, through her programme ‘Future Assured’ had been able to fulfil her dreams of helping the poor, sick, and underprivileged even in remote areas.
He also noted how she had immersed energy into taking the defence of women, children and vulnerable people in society.
“Aisha as the world has come to know her is kind hearted; this made her transitioning into philanthropy and humanitarianism easy when she became First Lady. Her protective mien also translates to the special energy she exerts when women, children, and vulnerable people are abused. I have observed with keen interest as she addresses many of the social concerns that have given her sleepless nights,” he said.
“Her programme, Future Assured, has provided her with a special vehicle to actualize her dreams: reaching the poor, sick and underprivileged families to improve their wellbeing, sometimes in remote areas, especially IDPs.
“The stance she has taken in defence of women in our society across our rich ethnic diversity also ranks very high amongst her passing. This plays a significant role in her ability to organize and coordinate likeminded people around a singular agenda.”
Buhari said all these efforts by Aisha have helped improved the lives of Nigerians, making the country worthy of pride and making her a worthy partner for him.
“All these have added impetus to the effort of the government in improving lives of Nigerians through a more robust economy and a nation worthy of our love and pride. She has therefore been a worthy partner and a beacon for some of the good things that Nigerians have come to identify with our government,” he said.
