Wife of the President of the Senate, Mrs. Toyin Saraki, has charged wives of the Senators in the 8th Senate to always be supportive and partner the Senate in the onerous task of making laws for the good of all Nigerians.
Mrs. Saraki stated this when she played host to Senators’ Wives Forum, in Abuja, recently.
She noted that contributions and support of the Senators spouse was imperative for the Senate to achieve the legislative agenda set for this administration.
Stressing that women are home builders, “the success or failure of a man lies in the hand of his wife. As the saying goes; behind any successful man there is a woman’’.
“The upkeep of a home is in our hands. If there is no peace at home, our husbands will not concentrate neither will they be able to legislate effectively.
“Our country is going through economic challenges. We are faced with insecurity, the greater threat our dear nation has ever faced in recent times with unemployed youths on the street”.
“The insecurity situation has turned children to orphans, women to widows, wanton destruction of properties. Many people are displaced from their homes and are now in the camps looking for rehabilitation,” Mrs. Saraki lamented.
She called for unwavering support for members of the Federal legislative houses in order to ascertain prospects in every of their undertaking in the National Assembly.
Earlier, the wife of the Senate Minority Whip, Mrs. Hawa Aduda, commended the coordinator of the Senators’ Wives Forum, Mrs. Toyin Saraki for sustaining the initiative just as she called on members to join forces for effectiveness and success of the Forum.
