“I wish to thank the women and youth of this country for the number of votes they gave President Buhari in the 2019 election and to assure that he will continue to do his best to make Nigeria a better country.” she said

Among those who attended the event were Zakiyya Masari, wife of the state governor; Mannir Yakubu, wife of the state deputy governor and Hadiza Dambazau, wife of minister of interior.
