The Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) has commended Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, for her contributions to governance. The PGF comprising APC governors said in praise of Aisha Buhari’s input to the government of the day.
The governors said the president’s wife made the contributions through insightful and selfless support to the processes of managing challenges of governance in the country.
The forum gave the commendation in a statement signed by Alhaji
Abubakar Bagudu, its chairman, on Tuesday in Abuja while felicitating with her on her 50th birthday.
“The PGF joins His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, his family and Nigerians to celebrate Her Excellency, Aisha Buhari, on her golden age of 50.
“We celebrate this special occasion and pray for more blessings and God’s guidance.
“We wish to acknowledge and commend the First Lady’s motherly care to the nation and in particular, your contributions to our successes through insightful and selfless support to the processes of managing challenges of governance in the country,” the APC governors said in praise of Aisha Buhari’s input to the governance of the country.
Bagudu added that as first lady, Mrs Buhari supported development initiatives and always demonstrated keen interest toward ensuring that the change the APC promised Nigerians remained a shining light of its administration.
“We rejoice with you and will always remain grateful for your guidance and support,” said Bagudu, who is also the Governor of Kebbi.
Aisha Buhari has channeled her inputs to the government of her husband through a Non-Governmental Organisation, NGO, the Future Assured Programme which was set up with the aim of advocating for the wellbeing of women, children, and adolescents in Nigeria.
The Future Assured Programme focusses on three broad areas of health, education and economic empowerment.
