Bola Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos state and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, has hailed the first lady, Aisha Buhari, stating that she has played a unifying role both in symbol and substance.
Tinubu stated this while speaking at the public presentation of the biography of Mrs. Aisha at the Presidential Villa, Abuja today April 8.
The book, “Aisha Buhari: Being different,” was written by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Administration and Women Affairs, Dr Hajo Sani.
Speaking as the chairman of the occasion, Tinubu said;
“Given the First Lady’s achievement, no one can reasonably question the role of a First Lady any longer. Remember that there were those who argued that the constitution does not assign any official role to the First Lady. With Mrs Dr Aisha Buhari, their concerns have been forever laid to rest.
First lady has played an uplifting, unifying role both in symbol and substance. She has been a voice of conscience calling us to be of our better self for the good of the nation and for the vulnerable among us.”
The event has Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and many other top government officials in attendance.
