Mrs. Buhari’s message was contained in a statement signed by her media aide, Suleiman Haruna, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), on Tuesday in Abuja.

She said their success would encourage other women to join the political arena and contest for elective offices.

“We pray that the two women and all other APC female candidates will emerge winners at the secondary elections in 2019,’’ the statement added.

While calling on the candidates to remain steadfast to the APC manifesto, she appealed to them to pay special attention to women empowerment and initiate policies that would help vulnerable families, when elected.
