Aisha Buhari has restated her commitment towards uplifting the lives of women, youths and vulnerable children in Nigeria.
Mrs Buhari stated this on Saturday shortly after she was decorated with the “Deborah Award’’ in recognition of her selfless service to humanity by the Diocese of Gwagwalada, Anglican Communion.
The award ceremony was conducted to commemorate the 2018 Episcopal Harvest with the theme: “Harvest of Ceaseless Blessings’’.
Mrs Buhari, who was represented by the wife of former Military Administrator of Katsina State, Mrs Grace Shamah, called on Nigerians to remain steadfast in praying for the peace and progress of the country.
She noted that “there is power in the spoken word, the power of life and death. Nigerians should therefore make positive declarations (utterances) about their country.”
The wife of the President called on Nigerians to pray for the nation’s leaders to enable them make the right decisions in the interest of the country and the people.
She urged Nigerians to pray for the Nation to achieve peace, stability and prosperity.
According to her, “As prayers heal the land, so do bad declarations bring hardship”.
She pledged to continue to give priority to the health and physical wellbeing of women and children.
“Women, children and the less privilege people will always be the focal point of my service.
“This award touched my heart because I see that even in the Church people are appreciating what we are doing to the less privilege Nigerians and the Internally Displaced Persons,’’ she said.
