Nigeria’s outgoing First Lady, Dame Patience Jonathan, says she will throw her weight behind the wife of the President-elect, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, in any of her projects that would better the nation.
She gave the assurance at the inauguration of the Defence and Police Officers Wives Association Skills Acquisition Centre, in Abuja yesterday.
“I will make sure that I support my sister, the incoming First Lady to make sure Nigerian women are safe”. The first lady said.
She lauded the service chiefs and the women association for their support for the President, especially during the Boko Haram insurgency, and urged them to sustain the patriotic efforts.
She further called on Nigerian to pray for the security chiefs to ensure that their efforts were successful.
“I want to thank all the Service Chiefs and all women associations for their support for the President and my office.
“You have really sacrificed a lot to ensure Nigeria is safe. Don’t be tired but ensure that Nigeria is safe. Pray for their success in finally keeping the nation safe,” she added.
