President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has been praised for appointing intelligent and diligent Nigerians, particularly women, to serve as ministers.

“Your appointments by the President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, GCFR, are not only well-deserved but also timely.”
The former All Progressives Congress (APC) national women leader also expressed confidence in the ability of the female nominees to excel in their national assignments and play pivotal roles in assisting the President in realizing his vision of a peaceful and prosperous Nigeria
Aliyu prayed: “As you embark on these important responsibilities, I pray for God’s guidance, sound health, and wisdom to enable you to discharge your duties diligently. Your dedication to the service of our nation is commendable, and I offer you my utmost regards.”
