Women’s Day: “End abductions in Nigeria – Aisha Buhari tasks gov’t

The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has lamented the continued abduction of women and girls in Nigeria by bandits and other terrorist groups, thereby calling on the government and other stakeholders to use their influence to bring an end to abductions.

In a goodwill message to Nigerian women on International Women’s Day which was posted on her Twitter handle @Aishambuhari, Mrs Buhari stated that the 2021 Women’s Day offers another opportunity for humanity to review and reflect progress made on issues of women and girls.

She said: “This year’s theme: Women in Leadership: Achieving on Equal Future in a COVID-19 World is a strong call to appreciate the efforts of women and girls in the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on women; disrupted education and careers, lost jobs, descent into poverty, and proliferation of domestic violence,” She said.

Mrs further stated that: “It is therefore important, not just to continue spreading the message of the COVID-19 protocol, but to remember and support those who have been affected negatively by the pandemic in one way or another”.

“Away from COVID-19, women and girls in Nigeria have continued to suffer abductions both in the hands of insurgents and bandits. As a mother I share the sorrow and agony of the victims and their families. I am also not unaware of the impact that these abductions could have in reverting many successes we have hitherto achieved, especially in terms of girl-child education and early marriages.

My best wishes to women all over the world for their resilience, hard work and commitment to the progress of humanity. Happy International Women’s Day,” Mrs Buhari stated.
