Unveiling the book on Saturday in Abuja, Mrs Buhari paid glowing tributes to the author, Khuraira Musa for her courage and determination.

Represented by her Senior Special Assistant, Dr Rukayyatu Abdulkareem Gurin, the First Lady, said she shares common passion, culture and traditional values with the author.

“I am really proud of the author for unveiling her rich cultural norms and experiences. Her success in her career as a woman serves as a source of encouragement not only to a girl child but to the Fulanis.

“Her audacity has clearly brought out the real culture, traditions, beauty and above all the determination of an African woman to succeed,” she said.

Speaking earlier, the author who is equally the founder of Arewa Development Support Initiative, ADSI, a capacity building initiative with presence in all 19 Northern states, said she wrote her biography to inspire the young generation of Africans.

According to Ms Musa, who is the founder of Zainab Memorial School in Bassa Local Government of Plateau State, Africans, especially the less-privileged ones needed inspirations to strive hard towards making a difference in their lives.

She said: “Look at me, I am from Ruga and I am standing here before all these men and women who have reached great heights.

“If you have a dream stand up, walk, run for whatever you dream for, and don’t listen to the naysayers because everything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard.”

Emir of Kano, Aminu Ado-Bayero, representative of Sultan of Sokoto, Minister of Women Affairs, Dr. Pauline Tallen; First Ladies of Kaduna and Katsina states and the wife of the APC vice presidential candidate, Nana Kashim-Shettima, were among the dignitaries that graced the occasion.
