Wife of the President, Hajia Aisha Buhari, has called on international agencies for more collaborative efforts to reduce the country’s malnutrition and maternal/new born deaths even as she praised the agencies for the various support they have been providing for the country.
She however said except vigorous efforts are made collectively, the goal might remain a mirage.
Mrs Buhari’s recent intervention and support for many nursing mothers across the country, especially those in rural areas, point to the fact that she is not leaving anything to chance at ensuring that the plight of women and children is attended to by the present government.
Mrs Buhari is already giving the needed support to reproductive, maternal, newborn child and adolescent health, as well as improving nutritional standards in the country even as she is extending a hand of help to these mothers who sometimes are ignorant of the nutritional needs of their children.
According to her, Nigeria accounts for the highest number of internally displaced persons on the continent with more than three million in various camps and places spread across the country.
