The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu, has called for increased investment in women, calling it a plan for national prosperity.

She revealed this in a message posted on her X account on Friday.

The statement read, “Today, on International Women’s Day, I celebrate every woman, daughters, sisters, aunts, mothers, grandmothers, and also great grandmothers for your resilience, passion, and courage that has brought us thus far.

“The theme this year resonates deeply: ‘Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress.’ It’s a call to action.

“This is the time to invest in women more than ever.

“Accelerating progress in any sphere requires that women be more involved.

“That is why I see investing in women, not as charity but as a strategy to build the future of our dear nation, Nigeria.”

Mrs. Tinubu also advocated for greater access to education, resources, and opportunities for women.

She also emphasized the necessity of removing economic obstacles and making women’s views heard.

The statement added, “Equipping you with education, resources, and opportunities to unleash your full potential, supporting your businesses, helping to dismantle economic barriers, and ensuring your voices are heard is a very crucial step.

“Therefore, my question to all women is: What are you doing to help the other woman? How are you investing in her?

“Let us all come together, bond, and love one another. This is the pathway to accelerated progress. I charge all women; just pull a sister up, one at a time. You will be amazed at what we can achieve collectively.”
