First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has on Monday, lamented the incessant mass abductions of women and girls by bandits and insurgents, especially in the northern part of the country.
In her address to mark the International Women’s Day, Aisha posted on her official Twitter handle @aishambuhari, said: “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.”
Aisha also called on all stakeholders in the country to use their different levels of influence towards bringing the mass abductions to an end.
She also appreciated the efforts of women and girls in the fight against COVID-19, saying that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on women, disrupted education, careers and proliferation of domestic violence.
Aisha, who is currently a way from Nigeria for personal reasons urged everyone that beyond spreading the message of COIVD-19 protocol, they should also support those negatively affected by the pandemic.
