Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha, has said her husband’s second term will focus on alleviating poverty by closing the gap between the rich and the poor.
She said this over the weekend during a dinner organized by her at the State House Conference Center in Abuja, to celebrate the President’s victory.
While acknowledging the supports of women and youths throughout the election period, 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 continued, “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.
Buhari added that the President had vowed not to betray the confidence of Nigerians, adding that his victory was a sign that Nigerians were satisfied with the change that his government had embarked upon.
