President Buhari reaffirmed the government’s commitment to promoting gender equality and removing barriers that hinder Nigerian women from realizing their rights.

“As Nigeria builds on the successes of the digital economy sector, which is the most successful in the diversification of the nation’s economy, and the Start-up Act, which creates endless opportunities for Nigerians in the technology space, the President trusts that women and girls in the country will have access to equal opportunities, live their dreams and contribute immensely to the development of the country,” he said.
