First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan has promised to support the wife of the president-elect, Aisha Buhari to better the lives of women across the country.
She said this in Abuja during the inauguration of the Defence and Police Officer’s Wives Association’s (DEPOWA) skills and acquisition centre.
Thanking other women associations for their role in uplifting Nigerian women, Dame Jonathan said: “I thank you, Nigerian women for all your support and I will make sure that I support my sister the incoming first lady to make sure Nigerian women are safe,” she said.
She also condoled with the families of fallen heroes who had paid the supreme price.
The first lady advised members of the association to continue to support their husbands, adding that as women, their role in nation building was very critical.
“May I, therefore, offer my heartfelt condolences to the families of officers and men who have paid the supreme price in order for us to live.
“We thank God our military is winning the battle against insurgents in the North East.
“If they can excel in their peacekeeping operations all over the world, I am convinced that they will definitely excel at home and I am also confident that by God’s grace we will conquer.
“I will like to challenge members of this association to continue to be a huge inspiration to their husbands as you offer constructive advice to them at all times.
“Let us continue to embrace peace and employ dialogue in addressing all our differences.”
