Nigerian First Lady, Aisha Buhari has said that her husband, President Muhammadu Buhari will be remembered as President who placed a premium on youth development.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday when she flagged off the Health Initiative for Rural Dwellers (HIRD), she said the president was particularly passionate about the scheme, adding that his support for the scheme was driven by his belief in one Nigeria.
“The administration of President Muhammadu Buhari will be remembered as one, which places a premium on youth development.
“Mr. President is particularly passionate about the NYSC. His support for the Scheme is driven by his belief in one Nigeria, and, sincere appreciation of the contributions of these young men and women. To this effect, the First Family always treat corps members serving in Daura, Katsina State, to presidential reception during Sallah festivities,” she said.
She called on the management of the Scheme as well as the corps members not to relent on their efforts in promoting the unity of the country by providing quality service delivery to the nation irrespective of state or place of service.
Buhari noted that the introduction of the (HIRD) program had been successful, hence her office appreciated the project by donating “a well-equipped mobile clinic to the Scheme to enhance the success of the corps medical team.”
She said the scheme had made an enormous impact, especially among rural dwellers, which has continued to attract commendation from within and outside the country.
