President Muhammadu Buhari has said women 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.
The President said this Tuesday while extolling Nigerian women on the occasion of International Women’s Day, March 8, 2022.
Buhari said women were not where they should be yet in different spheres of endeavour.
He said the celebration, under the hashtag #Break the Bias, and the theme; Gender Equality Today for a Sustainable Tomorrow, was therefore an opportunity to reflect on the vital roles women played in society, homes, governance, the professions, and in all walks of life.
Buhari, who commended the contributions of women to the current administration as Ministers, Special Advisers,
Senior Special Assistants, Executive Directors, Executive Secretaries, and many others, said that they were pulling their weights, and making it impossible for anyone to downplay their essence.
The President, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, felicitated with women and mothers, around whom the tranquillity of homes and society he said revolved
He prayed God to grant them peace, joy and satisfaction, as they celebrate today and always.
