The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has commended the wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, for her visit to the National Assembly.
It was earlier reported that Mrs Buhari was at the Senate and the House of Representatives to witness the laying of the report of the Constitution Review Committee.
It was learned that the report contains some provisions which had to do with the overall wellbeing and interest of women and the wife of the President came to show support.
Mrs Buhari was accompanied to the National Assembly by the Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen; Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, and some of her personal aides.
The First Lady and members of her entourage clapped to express their solidarity and support when three of the provisions which covered the interests of women were presented at the chambers.
Welcoming the First Lady to the Green Chamber, the Speaker assured that the report will be passed the report as soon as possible.
“Your Excellency, that is the report of the constitutional review committee. It has three provisions that will affect women positively. I can assure you that every man here is a “he for she”. We are still in the process and there is a lot of lobbying to be done by both Houses. By the grace of God, we will get through all of these,” he said.
