President Muhammadu Buhari, Tuesday saluted the hard work and dedication of Nigerian women working and achieving results in different fields, from those sacrificing daily in the markets and farms to train the next generation of leaders, to those breaking limits in education, sports, medical field, arts, entertainment and even in politics where they are still largely under-represented.
He joined them in celebrating the International Women’s Day (IWD) observed on March 8 to recognise the invaluable role women had played in advancing the progress of the country since independence.
Buhari, in a statement by his spokesman, Femi Adesina, said he was proud to have worked and associated with some of Nigeria’s brightest women in his cabinet, government and the international community.
He thanked the amazons who had served as partners in the progress witnessed on the political, economic and social fronts.

He said against all obstacles, these women in leadership positions had delivered in a society still largely dominated by men.
He welcomed the contributions of role models and women who had demonstrated that through hard work, dedication and honesty, greatness could be achieved.
He assured of his government’s commitment of the government to promoting gender equality, and respect for the rights of women and working conscientiously to remove all barriers preventing Nigerian women from realising their universal rights.
On the theme of IWD 2023, “DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality”, he said his administration had leveraged the creation of a ministry dedicated to the digital economy to promote the importance of digital skills, innovation and entrepreneurship for the girl-child.
He expressed confidence that Nigerian women and girls would have access to equal opportunities, live their dreams and contribute immensely to the development of the country.
