PRESS RELEASE : Mrs Buhari thanks Nigerian women for their unflinching support

Founder Future Assured Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has expressed her appreciation to Nigerian women for the unflinching support they have been giving her husband since the last presidential election. She said the support has been the force driving the President and herself. She made the comment during a session organized to distribute food items to women organizations in Yola, Adamawa state, Wednesday 24th May, 2017. “I am deeply appreciative of the support that you show to us at every turn and promise that I will never let you down” She said.

Mrs. Buhari also thanked them for the consistent prayers over her husband’s improved health. “Today’s event, which is the distribution of food items, is a symbolic gesture and a token of my appreciation. It is meant to confirm that I have not forgotten you, and never will.” The Executive Governor of Adamawa state, Alhaji Muhammad Bindow Jibrilla, speaking through the state commissioner for Education, Prof. Kaleptapwa Farauta, said he recognizes the fact that women carry the heaviest burden in our communities, so, anything to improve their welfare has his full support. He thanked the Wife of the President for her philanthropic gesture.

In her welcome remarks, Wife of the Governor, Mrs. Maryam Muhammad Bindow, thanked Mrs. Buhari for all that she has been doing through Future Assured, and said the event is consistent with the policy drive of the present administration at both the Federal and state levels and would go a long way in putting smiles on the faces of the beneficiaries. “I urge the beneficiaries to reciprocate the gesture by supporting government in its policies and programmes aimed at improving the lives of Nigerians.” She added.

Items distributed include rice, sugar, tomato puree and milk.

Some of the beneficiaries that attended the event are widows, physically challenged, religious groups and cultural groups, women council and market women.

At the Just concluded FUTURE ASSURED outreach in Benue State, over 3,500 people were screened at the outreach for various conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, malaria, breast and cervical cancer with support from the Marie Stopes international organization.

The Benue state government collaborated in the screening for HIV, hepatitis, tuberculosis and malaria. Drugs were given out freely to all patients who were diagnosed with any of the above ailments and referrals were made for all whose cases couldn’t be handled on the spot.

Family planning was done for those who wished while 2,521 school children were de-wormed and given free toothbrushes and toothpastes to encourage oral hygiene.

This medical outreach is the ninth so far covered by Future Assured. Ogun, Oyo, Calabar, Nassarawa, Enugu, Katsina, Adamawa, and Kogi have so far benefitted from the initiative.

#ONGOING : Medical outreach for the screening and treatment of 2,000 women, youths and children in Benue State.

The medical team will screen the beneficiaries for early detection of breast and cervical cancer and diagnosis for malaria and treat them for various ailments including high blood pressure and diabetes.

The exercise is aimed at providing free medical care for women, children and youths in the state.

The initiative is a collaboration between “Future Assured” and the Benue State Government to tackle health challenges facing women, youth and children.

The aim of the medical programme is to improve the health status of the less privileged families in the state.

The medical outreach will also provide free HIV testing and counselling to the beneficiaries.

PRESS RELEASE : FOUNDER FUTURE ASSURED Mrs. Aisha Buhari builds Maternity Clinic in Katsina State

Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has identified maternal and child mortality as a serious health challenge, which requires support from all quarters before it can be tamed. She was speaking during foundation stone laying ceremony of a Maternity Clinic at the Daura General Hospital, Katsina state, on Thursday, May 18, 2017.

Mrs. Buhari lamented the challenges women face trying to access medical care during pregnancy, at childbirth and while raising their babies. “Women go through serious challenges when they are at their most vulnerable state, so they need a lot of support. This support is one of the mandates of Future Assured, my programme.” She said.

This project, she said, will also support Federal Government’s policy of establishing healthcare facility in every political unit in the country. “The Maternity Ward is another way of reducing the challenges faced by women and making their lives better.” She drew attention to the need for stakeholders to pay more attention to the needs of women in all communities.

Wife of the Vice President, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo in her remarks commended the courage, hard work and dedication of Mrs. Buhari to Nigeria and Nigerians, and said this is what drives her to do the good job she is doing in the lives of women and children.

Wife of the Governor of Katsina State, Hajiya Zakiyya Aminu Masari commended the effort of Mrs. Buhari and thanked her for choosing Katsina state to commission this project.

Mrs. Buhari paid a courtesy call on the Emir of Katsina, Alhaji Abdulmumin Kabir Usman, who in his welcome address commended her for the new project and used the opportunity to call on leaders to protect women against maltreatment which as he said, is becoming more rampant.

The Maternity ward will have a 50-bed capacity and is being constructed by a donor through Aisha Buhari Foundation, who will hand it over to the hospital on completion.
