Nigeria’s First Lady, Remi Tinubu, conveyed a pragmatic
message, acknowledging the limitations of the federal government in addressing
all the needs of the populace.
Hosting the National Executive of the National Council for
Women Societies (NCWS) on Wednesday, August 16, 2023, Tinubu underscored the
significance of collective action and the role of community support.
“We cannot solely depend on the government to meet all
our needs. It is imperative that we rally around each other and provide the
necessary assistance,” Tinubu emphasised during the meeting. Her call for
a joint effort to tackle societal challenges resonated strongly, as she urged
individuals to extend their support networks beyond official channels.
A pivotal aspect of Tinubu’s discourse was her encouragement
for women to play a leading role in guiding the younger generation towards
embracing positive values and ethical principles. Expressing concern about the
adverse impact of social media, the First Lady emphasised the importance of
shielding youths from its negative influences.
Coinciding with the event, former First Lady Patience
Jonathan paid a visit to the current first lady, pledging her support towards
achieving their shared goal of assisting vulnerable segments of society.
In her statement, Jonathan highlighted her commitment to
supporting initiatives that drive positive progress within the nation. Drawing
from her own experience as a former First Lady, she stressed the importance of
solidarity and mentorship among women leaders for the betterment of the nation.
