Aisha Buhari Urges Compassion At Iftar With Wives Of Heads Of Mission, Development Partners

Compassion has been identified by wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari as the key to love, peace, and development. This was made known during an Iftar session with wives of Heads of Mission in Nigeria and Development Partners at the Banquet Hall, State House, Abuja.

Mrs. Buhari said Ramadan fast promotes compassion among people as they share in hunger and in nourishment. Fasting, she noted, provides a platform for coming together of families, friends and well-wishers, the rich and the less privileged.

She rated the contributions of Missions and Development Partners in Nigeria as significant and thanked them, urging them to do more.

“I remember when wives of Heads of Mission built boreholes to provide water in three IDP camps across the country, contributions like these reassure of the humanity in us.”

Wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo, in her remarks, noted that though we speak different languages, and come from different countries, we are indeed the same.

“I believe we all have the same desires, especially now during fasting. It is, therefore, time to turn our attention to the things that we really desire as women – our families; we need to pray for health and progress.”
