Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday, National President of the Association, Chief Mrs. Felicia Sani said Market Women under Tinubu’s led administration, were excelling in their businesses because of the peaceful environment provided since assumption of office.
According to her, the market women deserve support that will help them expand their trades and add value to the economy.
She called on Nigerians to work for the good of the entire country and avoid actions that will ignite crises.
The Women who adopted Sen. Remi Tinubu as their member said it was in recognition of her positive contributions to the well-being of women nationwide.
They also donated yams, onions, pepper and tomatoes to the first lady as a way of expressing their gratitude to her.
“We have adopted wife of the president, Oluremi Tinubu because of her love for market women and Nigerians in general.
“We are trying as women but more support from the first lady is needed.
“Crisis would not do anyone good, let those that carry out actions that will ignite violence in the country stop it. Our country, Nigeria is good and there is no place like Nigeria, let us give peace a chance. War will do nobody good”.
