Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday said that ‘unflinching support’ and prayers by Nigerian women is the driving force that has kept the President moving and delivering on his electoral promises to the people.
Speaking during a session organized to distribute food items to women organizations in Yola, the Adamawa State capital, Aisha Buhari said: “I am deeply appreciative of the support that you show to us at every turn and promise that I will never let you down.
“Today’s event, which is the distribution of food items, is a symbolic gesture and a token of my appreciation. It is meant to confirm that I have not forgotten you, and never will.”
Items distributed include rice, sugar, tomato puree and milk.
Some of the beneficiaries who attended the event are widows, physically challenged, religious groups and cultural groups, women council and market women.
The Governor of Adamawa state, Muhammad Bindow Jibrilla, speaking through the state commissioner for Education, Kaleptapwa Farauta, said he recognized the fact that women carry the heaviest burden in communities, and that anything done to improve their welfare had his full support.
