Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Aisha Alhassan has enjoined women to be steadfast and support President Muhammadu Buhari in his bid to transform the well-being of Nigerians.
The minister who made the appeal weekend in Warri when she addressed scores of women from the twenty-five local government areas of the state, said Mr. President is not only gender friendly but is als passionate about the uplifting of women from poverty to grace.
Represented by her Coordinator for Women Empowerment, Chief (Mrs.) Akukalia Angela, the minister disclosed that her ministry is presently distributing forms for women organizations and groups active in National Empowerment fund to various state to assist them in their chosen profession.
She however advised the women to be focused and not allow themselves be used by desperate politicians, adding, “APC will do everything humanly possible to put Nigeria back on the right positive track.
“The present process of economic recession is not caused by APC led government, rather it was caused by the immediate past government who looted the nation’s treasury and throw the people to hardship, remarked Mrs. Alhasan, insisting that Nigerians should bear with President Buhari in his effort to sanitize the battered economy.
Earlier, the Delta State APC Woman leader, Dr. (Mrs.) Janeth Oyubu, lauded the effort of both the president and the minister who she said are fighting very hard to put smiles on the faces of Nigerian women.
While noting that the PDP government has hijacked all the palliatives initiated by the president Buhari government, Mrs. Oyubu charged all APC members to be fully prepared to take over the reins of government in 2019 in Delta State.
“Don’t be carried away with peanut from the ailing PDP. I can assure you that APC has all it takes to transform your wellbeing by empowering you so that you can be helpful to your family and the society,” said the APC woman leader.
