She said Nigerian women should occupy political offices to make a difference.
“Women need to be in political offices for them to make a difference in the lives of their families,’ she said, promising “to support female aspirants across party lines,” the statement read.
Mrs. Buhari commended women members of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the South-East for doing a wonderful job by mobilising women.
