However, the partnership would only be perfected when members of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation meet the President’s wife later this week.
“Women and children face numerous challenges and vulnerabilities, yet, until recently, they have hardly been the centre of discussion at the global and national levels” and this partnership will change the focus of discourse soon.
The statement also revealed that this week’s meeting was set in motion during one of the discussions Aisha Buhari had on the sidelines of the 71st UN General Assembly geared towards improving the lives of women and girls, where African First Ladies were gathered to make commitments to the development of adolescent girls in Africa.”
