Muhammadu BuhariThe presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, on Sunday restated his commitment to empowering Nigerian women.

This is contained in a statement tagged “Special message to Nigerian women”, released in Abuja and signed by Garba Shehu, in commemoration of the International Women’s Day.

Mr. Shehu is the Director Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Organisation.

According to the statement, Mr. Buhari promised to ensure that the rights of Nigerian women are guaranteed as provided by the Nigerian Constitution.

The statement read in part: “My plan for Nigerian women has been made clear in ‘My Manifesto and Vision for Nigeria.

”I like to use this special opportunity set aside to celebrate women, to reiterate my personal commitment to the advancement of Nigerian women in Nigeria and in the Diaspora”.

In his Manifesto and Vision for Nigeria document released to the media in December 2014, Mr. Buhari had guaranteed that women would be adequately represented in government appointments.

He also promised to provide greater opportunities for females in education, job creation, and economic empowerment.

“Women all over the world are playing an ever increasing role in moving their nations forward both in and outside government.

“In keeping with the times, my government will ensure that Nigerian women are given the opportunity to rise and play an even more prominent role in moving out great nation forward”, it said.
