Mrs Aisha Buhari, the President, African First Ladies Peace Mission (AFLPM) and Nigeria`s First Lady, has called for global actions to address the negative impact of climate change on women and children in Africa.
She made this appeal in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Abuja by her Special Assistant on Media and Publicity Mr Aliyu Abdullahi.
According to the statement, it is unfortunate that women and children are at the receiving end of the the negative impact of climate change in Africa.
The Nigerian president’s wife expressed the need for stakeholders, especially development partners, to mobilise resources for lasting solutions to problems associated with the devastating impact of climate change on women and children.
“The impact of climate change has not only affected development but also women and children who are always at the receiving end of any type of crisis,” she noted.
The first lady also told the gathering that, her foundation, the “Aisha Buhari Foundation”, had in the last six years provided support to victims of insurgency and other natural disasters whom are mostly women and children in Nigeria.
NAN reports that Mrs Buhari spoke when she joined other African first ladies in the 3rd Turkey-Africa Partnership Summit held in Istanbul, Turkey.
The event was organised by the Turkish first lady, Mrs Emine Erdogan, to interface with her African counterpart to providing ways in tackling the negative impact of climate change on women and children on the continent.
The first lady has since returned to Abuja. (NAN)
