The First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has expressed gratitude to Nigerian women, members of the diplomatic community and partners for support and cooperation she received as a mother of the nation.
Mrs. Buhari said this when she hosted members of the diplomatic community and some Nigerian women to commemorate the end of the 2023 Ramadan period in Abuja.
She also used the occasion to appreciate development partners, wives of governors and service chiefs for their support of the success of her Aisha Buhari Foundation.
While commending members of the diplomatic corps for the cordial working relationship accorded her in the last eight years, the first lady urged them to extend the same to the incoming administration.
In what is likely a swipe at his opponent, Bola Tinubu of the APC, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, in the February 25 election and former governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi is saying that he had no reason to take a rest after the 2023 presidential campaigns and the election that followed.
He made this known in Awka the Anambra state capital, where he argued that those who had to rest had their reason for doing so.
Addressing reporters after visiting the Moslem community in Awka Central Mosque to celebrate the Eid-El Fitri with them, Obi said the kind of problems facing Nigeria did not warrant that her leaders should rest as there are many issues requiring consistent attention.
He told the Muslim community that his visit had nothing to do with politics because the campaigns had ended.
