President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that his wife, Aisha Buhari, has had sleepless nights due to the numerous demands placed on her as she seeks to better the lives of Nigerians to the best of her capacity.
President Buhari wrote in the foreword to her biography, “Aisha Buhari: Being Different,” that she is “different.”
“I have observed with keen interest as she addresses many of the social concerns that have given her sleepless nights”.
“Aisha as the world has come to know her is kind-hearted; this made her transitioning into philanthropy and humanitarianism easy when she became First Lady.
Her protective mien also translates to the special energy she exerts when women, children, and vulnerable people are abused.
I have observed with keen interest as she addresses many of the social concerns that have given her sleepless nights.
“Her program, Future Assured, has provided her with a special vehicle to actualize her dreams: reaching the poor, sick, and underprivileged families to improve their wellbeing, sometimes in remote areas, especially IDPs.
“The stance she has taken in defense of women in our society across our rich ethnic diversity also ranks very high amongst her passing.
This plays a significant role in her ability to organize and coordinate like-minded people around a singular agenda.
“All these have added impetus to the effort of the government in improving lives of Nigerians through a more robust economy and a nation worthy of our love and pride.
She has therefore been a worthy partner and a beacon for some of the good things that Nigerians have come to identify with our government.”
