The First Lady of Nigeria, Oluremi Tinubu, has stated that Nigeria’s diversity continues to be a major asset.
She asserts that the immense potential of the country would be realised if people lived in peace and love.
According to a statement released by her spokesman Busola Kukoyi, Mrs. Tinubu was addressing the distribution of relief and relocation kits to 500 displaced victims of communal violence and conflicts in 6 local government areas of Plateau State.
She consequently asked Nigerians to embrace communication and understanding in order to create a society that is more harmonious.
“Let us remember that our diversity is our strength, and together, we can overcome the challenges that threaten our unity,” She said.
“To the affected families, I want you to know that you are not alone in this journey to recovery. We stand with you and extend our hands in solidarity, offering not only financial support but also our prayers as you return to your homes and communities in safety and peace”.
In accordance with President Bola Tinubu’s declaration of a state of emergency in food production, she claimed that the donation was an opportunity to reiterate the importance of food production.
The First Lady was praised by Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang for exemplifying true motherhood in his remarks.
Senator Oluremi Tinubu, he said, looked over the fact that the state was led by an opposition party to comfort the grieving relatives.
“ Her being here today tells a wonderful story that after politicking, we must face governance and governance is all about the people”.
“ I assure you that we will supervise the use of the money and ensure it is used for the purpose it was given”.
500 families from the Mangu, Riyom, Barkin Lado, Bassa, Bokos, and Jos South Local Government Areas received a total of one million Naira each to help them repair their homes and return to their villages.
