The wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, has urged the All Progressive Congress, APC, women leaders across the country to ensure peace and unity among party members to enable them to achieve its mandate of delivering the desired change to Nigerians.

Mrs Buhari made the appeal on Monday when the coalition of APC women leaders from the 36 states and the FCT paid her a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the meeting was the first official engagement undertaken by Mrs Buhari in 2018.

The wife of the president tasked the party women leaders to champion the cause of women and bridge the gap among women at the state level as well as those at the grassroots.

She urged the women to work hard for peace and stability within the party and Nigeria.

According to her, the APC women are guided by the vision of a change in Nigeria which the Federal Government is determined to actualise.

“On my part, I will continue to appreciate you and the role you continue to play in organising our women for development.

“I am sure you have noticed the numerous empowerment and medical outreach that I organise for our women through Future Assured under Aisha Buhari Foundation.

“We are trying to ensure a faster rate of inclusion and economic engagement for more women,’’ she said.
