President Tinubu Assures Nigerian Women of Security, Healthcare, and Industrialization
President Bola Tinubu has assured Nigerian women of his commitment to ensuring the country's development by addressing issues of security, healthcare, and industrialization. He emphasized that his administration was already implementing policies and programs to positively impact the citizens, including a Students' Loan Scheme and efforts to halt insecurity immediately. Tinubu also acknowledged the support of women leaders during the campaigns and elections, promising better rewards for their efforts.

Abuja - President Bola Tinubu has assured women in the country that his administration is committed to ensuring that Nigeria is retrieved from the vested interests that have stifled her development.

He equally assured the womenfolk that issues of security, healthcare sys­tem, and industrialization would be top priorities of his administration.

President Tinubu spoke on Thursday at the State House when he received in audience the All Progres­sives Congress Women Leaders in the 36 states and the Federal Capital Terri­tory (FCT), Abuja, led by the APC National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu.

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

This, he stated, includes the Students' Loan Scheme, which, he said, would en­sure their children enjoy a stable academic calendar in their respective tertiary institutions.

"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 vigor. Industrialization is yet another priority as your children and relations will gain employment," President Tinubu stated.

While appreciating the women leaders for the visit, President Tinubu 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'", he said, promising that their children would receive bet­ter rewards as their future is now guaranteed with the initiatives being put in place.

With his new role as ECOWAS Chairman, Pres­ident Tinubu told the visit­ing women that although his emergence would place additional responsibility on him, it would spur him to work even harder.

"We will continue to strive for a better Nigeria. You will not regret your confidence in this administration."

Reaffirming his ad­ministration's open-door policy, President Tinubu explained that the unity of the country is essential and central to his mind.

He advised the women leaders to be accommodat­ing of others from other parties who, having seen the silver lining and the brighter future that lie ahead, are now willing to come on board.

He tasked the APC women leaders to educate the citizens on the policies and programs 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.

Earlier, APC National Wom­an Leader, Edu, stated that the women had come to congratulate the president on his victory at the polls, for the several good policies of his administration, and for his election as ECOW­AS chairman at the last summit.

The National Woman Lead­er enumerated the sterling re­cords of the president as governor of Lagos State, which had endeared him to Nigerians.

These, Dr. Edu stated, include the unprecedented eco­nomic development of the state and infrastructural developments.

The APC Woman Leader appealed to the president to consider more women in ap­pointments into government positions.
