Aisha Buhari makes a case for women

Aisha, wife of  President Muhammadu Buhari,   has called for the involvement of women  in leadership  in the country.

Mrs Buhari, represented by the Senior Special Adviser in the Office of the First Lady, Dr Hajo Sani,  made  the  call  in Abuja during the official launching of African Women Leaders Network, Nigeria chapter.

The event was organised by UN Women, African Union, Embassy of Germany and the Office of the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals and AWLN partners.

She  said, “We have our sister, Hajiya Amina Mohammed, who is  the Deputy Secretary-General of  the UN,  and in  many other places we also have women. Here in Nigeria, I think the productivity of women are being wasted because we have those who are capable and willing to also do not only as much as men, but even do better than men.”
