President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday expressed solidarity with Nigerian women as they observe 16 days of activism against Gender-Based Violence from Nov. 25 to Dec. 10, 2021.

Femi Adesina, the President’s media aide said in a statement issued in Abuja that the president expressed the solidarity when he received the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen who visited him.

“Women are the bedrock of the society and are largely responsible for stabilising the home front.

“My faith in the capability of Nigerian women remains steadfast as exemplified by the key positions they occupy in the present administration.

“I assure you that I will always be here for you and you can count on my support in your activities,’’ Mr Adesina quoted President Buhari as saying.
