In a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, President Muhammadu Buhari has joined the world to celebrate the womenfolk on the occasion of the International Women’s Day.

He paid tribute to them for the invaluable roles they play in building homes, and by extension, the nation, just as he applauded their lofty contributions in both the public and private sectors of national life.

President Buhari said,

“This election season we are in has brought out in bold relief once again the crucial role women play in our lives as a people. They have stood up to be counted as aspirants, candidates, mobilizers, and voters. Indeed, what can we ever do without our women in all phases of our lives,” the President says.

He recalls diverse positions being held by women as Ministers, Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, chief executives of agencies, permanent secretaries, directors-general, special advisers, senior special assistants, special assistants, and many others, and reiterates that things can only get better at the Next Level.

“Hand in hand with our women, we will build the country of our dreams, where there will be equal opportunity for all,” the President says.

The fact that some of government’s most important policies and programmes like straightening of the hitherto dysfunctional pensions system, Africa’s largest Social Investment Programme (SIP), diaspora engagements, energy solutions, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ports authority, foods and drugs administration and control, debt management, prohibition of trafficking in persons, and many others, are headed by women, President Buhari notes, is indicative of the worth and value the government places on them.

“On a day like this, I hereby extol and appreciate them, on behalf of all other Nigerians,” the President affirms.

The theme for this year’s celebration is Balance For Better.
