She commended Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Buhari for her visionary leadership and for galvanising the wives of the 36 state governors towards impacting their states in a positive manner in the past four years.

In her address to wives of the governors, Mrs Buhari expressed appreciation to the women for building confidence and restoring hope to their fellow women, noting, “In the last four years, many of you have positively impacted lives of your people in your states and even beyond. Specifically, you have touched lives, your hands have healed the sick and transformed the faces of sadness into faces of smiles.”

“Beyond being wives of governors who have a public mandate with the duty to support, we must also be committed to championing the cause of the vulnerable in our society. For these, you will be remembered and judged positively by posterity and history,” Mrs Buhari added.
