My wife has sleepless nights trying to improve the lives of Nigerians” – President Muhammadu Buhari
President Muhammadu Buhari has shared an insight on how his wife, Aisha Buhari has had sleepless nights with the many demands on her as she tries to improve the lives of Nigerians in her capability.
In the forward of her biography “Aisha Buhari: Being different”, President Buhari said;
“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.”
