Eid- Adha: NCWS Urges Nigerians, Muslims to Pray For Nigeria

 

The National President, National Council of Women Societies (NCWS), Hajiya Lami Lau, on Tuesday called on Nigerians and Muslims to pray for divine direction for President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

Lau in her Sallah message said every true Muslim, especially women, should be grateful to God for the privilege to celebrate the 2023 Eid al-Adha irrespective of the economy challenges.

According to her, the Eid-al-Adha celebration serves as a reminder of the power of faith to bring people together, transcending borders, cultures, differences, and fostering a sense of shared humanity.

“As women, we have faith in President Tinubu’s administration that it holds better days for Nigerians and the women in particular, but we have to pray to God for divine intervention.

“Tinubu’s promise to feature women and youth “prominently” in his administration is a welcome development and an encouragement to Nigeria women to work with him.

“This is why we need to pray to God to keep the new government in focus and that nothing should disarray him and his team from attaining their vision,’’ she said.

Lau said that a World Bank report stated that women make up 49 per cent of Nigeria’s population, but have mainly remained underrepresented in the political space throughout the country’s history.

“As we celebration this festival, let’s have it in mind that we need more women in governance and we called on the president to consider women in his appointment of ministers, Director General of agencies and among key officers.

“If more women are given the opportunity to serve in various government positions, they will bring hope back to the masses and the society will benefit.

“There cannot be any meaningful development without an all-inclusive government of women, youths and persons with disabilities,” she said.

Lau said that the council has full confidence in the President and the first lady, as a patron of NCWS, that the 35 per cent promise of women inclusion in governance would be achieved.

The NCWS president said that there are lots of women technocrats that could fit into any position which the president could look into in his next appointments.
