According to the former Kano governor, President Tinubu was committed to ensuring that Nigerian women enjoyed the dividends of democracy under his administration.
“The government is already implementing policies and programmes that would positively affect women.
“I want to urge you to align yourself with the office of the First Lady so that you can also benefit from the numerous programmes she has in her plans.
“We have heard you and your requests and we assure you that whatever we can do to assist you, we will do it,” he said.
While speaking during the visit, Mrs. Yashim said their visit was to congratulate the chairman on his emergence as the leader of the party and to notify him of women’s demands.

“We wish to please make demands that you as chairman of the party and all National Working Committee members look into, and handsomely reward our principal with a ministerial appointment.
“We won’t mind any befitting appointment that can encourage her to do more for the benefit of all Nigerians,” she said.
