Women for Change and Development Initiative (W4CDI) have condemn the statement of the former Head of State and the All Progressive Congress (APC) Presidential flag bearer over scrapping the office of the first lady if elected in 2015.

General Buhari in an interview with Weekly Trust said if elected as president in next year’s presidential election will abolish the office of the First Lady.

In a press conference by the national coordinator, Princess Dr. Rabi Ibrahim on Monday in Abuja yesterday, Princess Rabi said that Gen. Mohammadu Buhari has really disappointed Nigerian women ahead of 2015 general election.

“We condemn this statement in strong term. This shows that Buhari has nothing to offer Nigerian women and we are highly disappointed in him. He should come out to tell Nigerians what he has to offer not coming to say he will scrap office of the first lady”
She said all women appointees all over Africa and around the world see the office of the first lady as an important arm of every sitting government and through the office also contribute to nation building.

The office, according to Princess Rabi though not constitutionally recognized, but has been maintained by past and present administrations and is even seen as being key in policy decisions.
She said an example of the importance of the office of the first Lady is the empowerment programme initiated by the first Lady herself called Women for Change and Development Initiative despite the fact that the office has no budget.
“Office of the first lady is a rallying point for all women in politics in Nigeria. Dame Patience Jonathan through Women for Change and Development Initiative is committed to the creation of a movement that will engender the mass awareness of women at all levels to their human rights and obligations as citizens of Nigeria. We get support from well-wishers and help the less-privileged and orphans, especially the widows”.

Princess Rabi stressed that Nigerian women had never had it better than this administration: “It is on record that this is the administration that recognize women participation in politics and that is why Nigerian women believe in President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation agenda”

“Buhari has not been voted for and he is saying this, which means if he was the president all educated women would be housewives and relegated to the background. For his information, we are saying no and he has started loosing already”
