President Muhammadu Buhari has felicitated with all Nigerian women as they join the rest of the world in celebrating International Women’s Day.
On this day set aside by the global community to encourage and celebrate women’s social, cultural, economic and political achievements, President Buhari reaffirms his administration’s commitment to the promotion of women’s rights and the well-being of women in all geopolitical zones of Nigeria.
The President noted that the theme of this year’s International Women’s day, “Pledge for Parity,” is consistent with the promise by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to remove all impediments to the realisation of equality by Nigerian women.
He assured them that his administration would continue to do all within its powers to fulfil that pledge.
Accordingly, President Buhari has directed the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs “to move quickly to identify critical issues militating against the well-being and progress of Nigerian women, with a view to rapidly devising adequate plans, programmes and strategies to address them”.
