President Muhammadu Buhari’s wife, Aisha, has appealed to caregivers in orphanage homes to pay greater attention at every stage of growth of the children to properly develop their capacity for a stable future.
Mrs Buhari spoke in Gwagwalada, Abuja, where she joined children at the orphanage in Giri for the Sallah celebration.
She said it was imperative to take proper care of children by showing them love and care so they could become future leaders in their own right like any other child in the country.
Mrs. Buhari expressed optimism that necessary attention would be accorded orphanages by governments in improving facilities to meet required standard.
Earlier, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Capital Territory administration, John Chukwu, said the motherly gesture of the wife of the president was a morale booster that would have positive impact on children .
Mrs Buhari later shared Sallah meal with the children, who sang songs and rejoiced.
She also presented thank-you gifts to the children before inspecting dormitories as part of her facility assessment tour.
