The First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has advocated the active participation of women to reshape the nation and address societal ills plaguing the female gender.

The announcement was made by her media aide, Busola Kukoyi, on Monday.

The First Lady said this when she was paid a courtesy visit by the Minister of State for Police Affairs, Imaan Sulaiman-Ibrahim, who led senior female police officers to her office at the State House, Abuja.

Mrs Tinubu said the current administration of President Bola Tinubu would see to the inclusion of women to contribute their quotas to the country’s development.

She also condemned the maltreatment of children and called for a reduced rate of human trafficking, organ harvesting and baby factories.

The statement read in part: “It is the beginning of a new dawn for women in the country as the current administration will give women more room to contribute their quota. I am also looking for ways to contribute. We cannot have a Nigeria without people doing new and great things.”

“Women must thrive and be empowered in a safe environment. We want to see our children not abused through crimes and maltreatment, rape of minors and children. There must be a reduction in cases of human trafficking, organ harvesting and baby factories.”

In her response, the minister said the ministry was working towards achieving a “modern, responsive” police institution while acknowledging the limitations of past reforms.

Sulaiman-Ibrahim said: “We are working on bold initiatives aimed at not only addressing existing challenges but also fundamentally reshaping the Nigeria Police into a modern, responsive, intelligence-led and technology-driven institution. We recognise the limitations of past reforms and are now taking a more proactive and holistic transformation that permeates every facet of police operations.

We are here today not just to discuss but to seek your collaboration, for we understand that the collective advancement of these crucial issues requires your esteemed support and partnership”.

Sulaiman-Ibrahim is the first female Minister of State for Police Affairs in Nigeria.
