IWD22: President Buhari Extols Virtues of Nigerian Women

President Muhammadu Buhari has extolled the virtues of Nigerian women as the Nation’s female societies joined their counterparts globally to mark the International Women’s Day on March 8, 2022.

The year’s celebration which is themed ‘Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow’ is under the hashtag #BreaktheBias.

In a statement signed on Tuesday by Presidential spokesperson on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Buhari said the celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the vital roles women play in society, homes, governance, the professions, and in all walks of life.

President Buhari observed that women are not where they should be yet in different spheres of endeavour, but believed that they can no longer be deprived for too long, as they consistently prove that they can hold their own on all fronts, and in all fields.

“The President rejoices with women and mothers, around whom the tranquility of homes and society revolves, praying God to grant them peace, joy and satisfaction, as they celebrate today and always,” the statement added.

He applauded the contributions of women to the current administration as Ministers, Special Advisers, Senior Special Assistants, Executive Directors, Executive Secretaries, and many others, noting that they are pulling their weights, and making it impossible for anyone to downplay their essence.

The President, therefore, rejoiced with women and mothers, around whom the tranquility of homes and society revolves, praying God to grant them peace, joy and satisfaction, as they celebrate today and always.
