PRESIDENT Bola Ahmed Tinubu assures women in the country that his government is dedicated to freeing Nigeria from the vested interests that have stunted the country’s growth.
In a statement on Thursday by the President’s spokesman, Dele Alake, Tinubu said “enough is enough, we are taking our country back.”
Tinubu was quoted as saying this at the State House when he received in audience the All Progressives Congress (APC) women leaders from the 36 states and Abuja.
The women leaders were led by the APC National Woman Leader, Betta Edu.
Tinubu assured the women that his administration would place priority on matters relating to industrialisation, healthcare, and security.
“We have established a scholarship scheme that would guarantee their four years of tertiary education,” Tinubu was quoted as saying.
“Security is paramount in my administration’s agenda because women bear the cost of insecurity anywhere in the world.
“Issues of insecurity are being discussed at the highest level and this administration will ensure that insecurity is halted immediately.
“Medicare is another. We will ensure that health facilities are revamped and we will pursue this with vigour.
“Industrialisation is yet another priority as your children and relations will gain employment,” he stated.
Tinubu praised the APC women leaders for their support during the 2023 elections, adding that they all deserve awards for their efforts.
“We will continue to strive for a better Nigeria. You will not regret your confidence in this administration,” he said.
