President Muhammadu Buhari saluted womenfolk on the occasion of the International Women’s Day.
This was disclosed in a statement released by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adeshina, on Tuesday.
Noting that the theme of the 2022 celebration: Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow, President Buhari said it is an opportunity to reflect on the vital roles women play in society, homes, governance, the professions, and in all walks of life.
Buhari who observes that women are not where they should be yet in different spheres of endeavor, expressed 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.
He extolled 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 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.
