Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari has revealed the tremendous role his wife Aisha Buhari plays in the life of Nigerians which is not conspicuous to several people.
In the forward of her biography ‘Aisha Buhari: Being different’ the president said, “Aisha, as the world has come to know her, is kind-hearted; this made her transitioning into philanthropy and humanitarianism easy when she became First Lady. Her protective mien also translates to the special energy she exerts when women, children, and vulnerable people are abused.
I have observed with keen interest as she addresses many of the social concerns that have given her sleepless nights.
Her programme, Future Assured, has provided her with a special vehicle to actualize her dreams: reaching the poor, sick, and underprivileged families to improve their wellbeing, sometimes in remote areas, especially IDPs.
The stance she has taken in defense of women in our society across our rich ethnic diversity also ranks very high amongst her passing. This plays a significant role in her ability to organize and coordinate like-minded people around a singular agenda.”
