He stressed, “Hand in hand with our women, we will build the country of our dreams, where there will be equal opportunity for all.”

He highlighted the policies and programmes to include the pensions system, Social Investment Programme (SIP), diaspora engagements, energy solutions, and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), among others.

“On a day like this, I hereby extol and appreciate them, on behalf of all other Nigerians,” President Buhari affirmed.
