Buhari said: “This is what we promised to all Nigerians – including our women and girls when our party, the All Progressives Congress, was elected in 2015.

“I am proud to say that our government has delivered over the past eight years.”

The president, who acknowledged the role of women and girls in nation-building, said no true national development can take place in society without gender equality.

He urged all stakeholders to work hard in the drive for gender equity and equality in the country.
