Oluremi Tinubu, the first lady, says investing in women is a sure strategy to build the nation’s future. 

Speaking on Friday while commemorating the 2024 International Women’s Day in Abuja, Remi congratulated Nigerian women “for being steadfast, resilient and courageous”.

The International Women’s Day is commemorated annually on March 8 to recognise the achievements and contributions of women globally.

“This is the time to invest in women more than ever, accelerating progress in any sphere requires that women have to be involved,” NAN quoted her as saying.


“That is why I see investing in women, not as charity, but a strategy to build the future of our dear nation, Nigeria.

“Equipping you with education, resources and opportunities to unleash your full potential, supporting your businesses, helping to dismantle economic barriers, and ensuring your voices are heard is a very crucial step.

“Let us all come together, bond and love one another. This is the pathway to accelerated progress.


“I charge all women; just pull a sister up, one at a time. You will be amazed at what we can achieve collectively.”

The first lady urged women to invest in themselves, and adopt meaningful ways of engaging one another, in order to promote peace and love.
