Aisha Buhari, the wife of President Muhammadu Buhari has stated that the women and youth who supported the campaign of her husband will not be forgotten and that the President will address the gap between the poor and the rich.
The first lady in a statement through her media aide, Suleiman Haruna, stated this at a victory dinner organised by the Youth and Women Campaign Organisation at the Old Banquet Hall, Presidential Villa Abuja yesterday.
Aisha expressed her delight over the victory of President Buhari. She said;
“I wish I can invite all the 15 million Nigerians that voted for Mr President to this dinner, but no place can accommodate you all”.
“So let me say thank you and assure you that you made the right choice.”
She also took the opportunity to appreciate the APC Presidential Campaign Council, as well as the Buhari Support Organization.
“Specifically, I wish to express my appreciation to the women and youth presidential campaign team that I initiated to complement the efforts of the APC Presidential Campaign Council”.
“As you all know by now, the aim of setting up the team was to get women and youth, who form the majority of the electorate, involved in all the campaign activities across the country.”
She said this was a successful experiment that will be recognised in the nation’s political history.
