Buhari urges increased participation of women in governance

President Muhammadu Buhari has called for more participation of women in the country’s governance.

Buhari made the call when he visited Adamawa State on Monday.

He said the emergence of the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate in Adamawa State, Aisha Binani, as Nigeria’s first female governor in next month’s election would send a signal to the world about Nigeria’s leadership maturity.

“The women have been fighting from a distance, let them now come close, and also share in leadership,” Buhari said when he visited the Lamido of Adamawa at his Palace in Yola.

He thanked the monarch for his support and urged everyone to vote the APC candidate in the forthcoming election.

In his remark, the Governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri, thanked the President for various interventions in the state.

He said, “We want to thank you for various and several projects in Adamawa. All our proposals for the state have been approved.”

“We will not get tired of receiving you in the state. We will continue to pray for you. We love you and admire you. You have done well and surpassed what is expected of a leader,” the governor added.

The Lamido of Adamawa, Muhammadu Mustapha, also appreciated Buhari for the developments in the state, which included appointments into top positions in government like the Federal Capital Territory Minister, Mohammed Bello, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency Chairman, Buba Marwa.
