You All Deserve Gold Medals, Tinubu Tells APC Women


President Bola Tinubu has assured women his administration will do all that is required to retrieve the country from the stranglehold of those who have stifled her growth and development.

Tinubu gave the assurance when he received in audience the All Progressives Congress (APC) Women Leaders from the 36 States and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja led by the APC National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Special Duties, Communication and Strategy, Dele Alake, the President also assured them security, healthcare system and industrialisation would be top priorities of his administration.

The President declared that his administration was already implementing many policies and programmes that would positively impact the citizens.

“We have established a scholarship scheme that would guarantee their four years of tertiary education”, he further said.

“Security is paramount in my administration’s agenda because women bear the cost of insecurity anywhere in the world. Issues of insecurity are being discussed at the highest level and this administration will ensure that insecurity is halted immediately.

“Medicare is another. We will ensure that health facilities are revamped and we will pursue this with vigour. Industrialization is yet another priority as your children and relations will gain employment,” Tinubu stated.

While appreciating the women leaders for the visit, the President praised them for their support during the campaigns and elections, adding that they all deserve awards for their efforts.

“You all deserve gold medals because you worked so hard politically, overcoming so many obstacles like the fuel scarcity and Naira ‘confiscation,’ promising that their children would receive better rewards as their future is now guaranteed with the initiatives being put in place.”

He tasked the APC women leaders to educate the citizens on the policies and programmes of his administration with the awareness that the present difficulties are temporary.

“You understand better, you are better coordinators, you know how to multitask. The gains of the subsidy removal will be channeled to better the lives of Nigerians from the few that have been fleecing the nation,” the President said.
