President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, has assured Nigerians that the All Progressives Congress, APC, flag bearer, Bola Tinubu, will be president.
Aisha Buhari assured Tinubu that Nigeria would be safe under his leadership.
She spoke at a one-day public symposium in Abuja titled “Dissecting the Asiwaju Manifesto – Renewed Hope 2023.”
Asabe Bashir, the Matron of the APC Women Campaign Team, represented the First Lady at the event.
She said Tinubu’s antecedents have shown that he would serve Nigeria well.
Mrs Buhari urged Tinubu to consider women in the area of national security.
According to Aisha: “I have gone through the manifesto of our presidential candidate and have no doubt that given his experience in governance and passion to make a positive impact in our national development, we would be in safe hands.
“I would suggest that every idea and strategy for national security must factor in women.
“This is because the world has accepted the reality that women are agents of peace, growth and development.”
Mixed reactions have continued to trail Tinubu’s emergence as APC flag bearer in the 2023 election.
