Aisha Buhari tasks women groups on unity

The First Lady,  Mrs. Aisha Buhari, has called for unity of all women’s groups in the country.

Buhari gave the charge when she received the newly-elected 15th National Executive Members of the National Council for Women Societies (NCWS) led by its President, Mrs. Lami Lau, at the State House, Abuja.

She said the body was recognised for its ability to unite the diverse women groups across the country.

“ President, as you know, the task of uniting women groups of different interests under one umbrella may be overwhelming.

“ Especially, when each of these groups has varied interests to pursue,” she said.

Buhari, however, said it was important to note that there was a common goal of uplifting the status of women across the country.

While assuring the visitors of her determination to support their course, Buhari also reminded them of the enormous task ahead.

“ I believe, as president of NCWS, you have a lot of work ahead, especially with diversity and denial of equal rights and opportunity for women.

She, therefore, urged them to join forces with other relevant stakeholders to ensure that the rights of women were not trampled.
