Nigeria’s First Lady, Hajiya Aisha Buhari has reiterated her unalloyed support for the success of her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. The First Lady made this known while speaking to her supporters during a visit to Benisheik, one of the liberated towns of Borno State, where she flagged off the distribution of relief items to displaced rural women under her brain-child ‘Get Involved’ initiative, a sub-component of her pet project, Future Assured.
In her words, the First Lady said, “What I am after in particular is the success of my husband’s administration and he can’t do it alone except with the help of the governors, their wives and all members of our progressive party. We thank almighty Allah that we have started fulfilling some of the campaign promises that we made. This is the essence of leadership; you make a promise and then fulfilled it. We thank my dear husband who make sure peace is returning to the northeast states.”
Speaking on the Benisheik initiative, she said,”We are here with my committee members to flag off distribution of relief items to our IDPs who have returned back to their homes, we are doing this so as to cushion the hardship of our traumatized victims of boko haram and other related violence that have hitherto affected some parts of this country, particularly the north east. Now that peace have been restored by our gallant troops and our IDPs have also returned home, we deem it feet with my friends, associates and well wishers to assist our people with nutritional food items. I believe this gesture which will be extended to all parts of this country affected by violence, so as to encourage those still leaving in camps go back to their liberated communities.”
