President Goodluck Jonathan has wished all mothers in Nigeria a very happy Mothers’ Day celebration.
In a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Reuben Abati, the president said as the country marked the day set aside worldwide to commemorate mothers and their great, unique and indispensable service to humanity, he was saluting all Nigerian women and mothers.
Jonathan assured them that the Federal Government would continue to do all within its powers to further empower them to play their immense, God-given role for the greater glory of our dear nation.
“President Jonathan reaffirmed that his administration will continue to progressively strengthen its affirmative actions in favour of girls, women and mothers while intensifying its actions aimed at promoting gender equality in the nation”, the statement read in part.
It further noted that President Jonathan, who attended a special service at the Presidential Villa to commemorate Mothers’ Day with his mother, Eunice Jonathan, and the First Lady, Patience Jonathan, prayed that God Almighty would bless all Nigerian mothers mightily and reward them for the immense love and care with which they continue to nurture and raise worthy children on whom the future prospects of our great nation will depend.
