Wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Hajiya Aisha Buhari, has appealed to caregivers in orphanage homes to pay greater attention at every stage of growth of the children to properly develop their capacity for a stable future.
She made the plea in Gwagwalada, Abuja, where she joined children at the orphanage in Giri for the Sallah celebration.
According to the wife of the president, it was imperative to take proper care of children by showing them love and care so they could become future leaders in their own right like any other child in the country.
Mrs. Buhari expressed optimism that necessary attention would be accorded orphanages by governments in improving facilities to meet required standard.
Earlier, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Capital Territory administration, John Chukwu, said the motherly gesture of Mrs. Buhari was a morale booster that would have positive impact on children.
Aisha Buhari later shared Sallah meal with the children, who sang songs and rejoiced.
She also presented thank-you gifts to the children before inspecting dormitories as part of her facility assessment tour.
