Fatimah Abdul-Kareem Tasks Tinubu, Women

A former president of Nigerian Association of Women Journalists (NAWOJ) and former vice president, Gender Council, International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), Mrs. Fatimah Abdul-Kareem has tasked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to promote gender balance in his cabinet, as well as pursue policies that will liberate women from all manners of abuse and take the downtrodden, especially women out of extreme poverty; as women and girls are always at the receiving end of all unfortunate situations. 

She gave the charge in a goodwill message to Mr. President for Eidel Kabir, circulated to the press, even as she prayed for a resounding success of Tinubu's administration. She also urged Nigerians to support the government and have faith in God that Nigeria will be great, know peace, progress and prosperity on Tinubu's watch. 

Adding that the whole world is looking closely at Nigeria, while notable global institutions have commended the steps taken by the president so far within 30 days of his presidency, she urged the people to unite behind President Tinubu in his determination to make the country better. 

"It is our duty to pray for our leaders, irrespective of ethnic background, gender, religious creed or party affiliation. We must be passionate about their success as the success of the leaders is the success of the nation" she opined.

In the same vein, she charged the womenfolk to be more awake to political participation the next time around, by encouraging more women to vie for offices and as well support women candidates as a matter of priority. She added that it is unfortunate women candidates in the past never had enough support from fellow women which is quite regrettable.

She asserted that women are good administrators, noble, accountable and compassionate office holders, as already demonstrated by many Nigerian women who have occupied various positions of authority at the highest level; even on global stage.
