The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu has described first lady, Aisha Buhari, as a voice of conscience.
He made this statement while speaking at the public presentation of the biography of the first lady at the Presidential Villa, Abuja today April 8.
The book, “Aisha Buhari: Being different,” was written by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Administration and Women Affairs, Dr Hajo Sani.
The event has Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and many other top government officials in attendance.
Speaking as the chairman of the occasion, Tinubu said Aisha Buhari has played an uplifting, unifying role both in symbol and substance.
In his words;
“Given the First Lady’s achievement, no one can reasonably question the role of a First Lady any longer. Remember that there were those who argued that the constitution does not assign any official role to the First Lady. With Mrs Dr Aisha Buhari, their concerns have been forever laid to rest.
First lady has played an uplifting, unifying role both in symbol and substance. She has been a voice of conscience calling us to be of our better self for the good of the nation and for the vulnerable among us.”
