Abuja – Nigeria’s in-coming First Lady, Mrs Aisha Buhari, said women would enjoy a better deal under the President-elect, Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, as soon as he was inaugurated.
This is conveyed in an Easter Message released in Abuja on Monday by Malam Garba Shehu, Director, Media and Publicity, APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.
According to the message, the wife of the president-elect assured Nigerian women that they would witness a better deal when her husband formally takes office on May 29.
It said: ”I wish Christian women the abundant blessings of the Easter celebration. “Nigerian women are among the hardest working social groups, but have remained economically and politically marginalised.
“Under my husband’s government, honest labour and hard work would be adequately rewarded, while corruption would be fought aggressively.”
In it, she advised Nigerian women not to despair as the Buhari-led administration would spare no efforts to promote and protect their welfare. (NAN)
