Women Can Perform Creditably If Given Opportunity – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has praised Nigerian women, saying they can perform creditably both locally and globally if given the opportunity.

Buhari in a statement issued on Monday by his media aide, Femi Adesina, described women as the bedrock of society.

“I am proud of our women who have shown by dint of hard work and capacity that they can perform creditably if given the opportunity at home and on the global stage,” Buhari was quoted as saying.

President Buhari pledged support towards female gender inclusiveness in all sectors of national life, stressing that women are key to a happy and stable family, society, and nation.

With females forming about half of the country’s population, President Buhari stated that any “government which neglects such a crucial component of its demographic asset, stands the risk of stunted growth and likely failure.”

While noting that the theme of the 2021 celebration: Choose To Challenge, is quite apt, the President felicitated with the womenfolk and restated his administration’s commitment to addressing the multifarious challenges confronting them at various levels of society.

He also condemned all forms of gender-based discrimination, abuse, harassment, and violence targeted especially at the female folk at workplaces, schools, community and national levels.

The President wished all Nigerian women a joyous and memorable 2021 International Women’s Day celebration.
