International Women’s Day: Aisha Buhari Expresses Concern Over The Impact Of Kidnapping And Early Marriages On A Girl Child

 International Women’s Day: Aisha Buhari Expresses Concern Over The Impact Of Kidnapping And Early Marriages On A Girl Child
The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Aisha Buhari, has expressed concern over how kidnappings across the country would negatively impact girl-child education. 

Mrs. Buhari said this in a statement she issued on the occasion of International Women’s Day, where she also said that as a mother, she identifies with the pains of kidnap victims and their families.

Taking to her official Twitter handle @aishambuhari, Mrs. Buhari wrote: 

“As a mother, I share the sorrow and agony of the victims and families. 

“I am also not unaware of the impact that these abductions could have in reverting many successes we have hitherto achieved, especially in terms of girl-child education and early marriages.” 

She challenged stakeholders to act and put an end to the kidnappings.

Aisha also called for the appreciation of the contribution of women and girls in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

She noted that the pandemic had a huge impact on women, disrupted education, careers and increased domestic violence. 

She stressed that beyond spreading the message of COIVD-19 protocols, “there is a need to remember and support those who have been affected negatively by the pandemic one way, or another.”
