Wife of the President, Hajiya Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, says her passion for the plight of mothers, children and adolescents, informed her decision to set up her pet programme, Future Assured.
A statement by her media director, Mallam Zakari Yau Nadabo, quoted her as saying this at the State House in Abuja Wednesday, while hosting the wife of the visiting president of Turkey, Mrs Emine Erdogan.
The wife of the president said the series of intervention projects and initiatives designed for some categories of Nigerians were her modest response to the current challenges confronting women and children in Nigeria.
She expressed delight with the similarity of thought, attention and desire to impact on women and children between her and Mrs. Erdogan.
Mrs Buhari also acknowledged Turkey’s support for renovation work and donation of some items to selected schools and internally displaced persons (IDPs) camps in the country.
According to her, the areas of intervention for the IDPs in parts of the country was akin to what Mrs Erdogan was doing for over three million refugees classified in Turkey as ‘guests’.
