While her Husband Bola Tinubu has been associating with and employing Abacha henchmen like Bagudu, Oluremi Tinubu has changed the name of the main hall at the Maryam Babangida National Centre for Women’s Development to honor Dr. Maryam Abacha, who was married to the late General Sani Abacha, who was the military leader of Nigeria at the time.
Remi inaugurated the room, which was formerly known as African Peace Mission Hall, and changed its name to Abacha in recognition of her efforts to promote peace throughout Africa.
In her keynote speech, Senator Oluremi Tinubu said that the event was a big step forward in women working together to build stronger bonds and make progress toward togetherness and long-lasting relationships.
She said that Maryam Abacha was a woman with an amazing personality and a strong commitment to the progress of the whole African region.
“Because of her work, the Federal Ministry of Women Affairs was created, and a woman was made a cabinet minister. This was copied in other states, which makes Nigerian women more visible.
“Recently, when we changed the name of this center, I urged women to build bridges, act in a good way, and look past our differences because our unity as women is more important.”
This event is important because it is a big step toward making peace in our country last for a long time.
“On our way to peace and prosperity, it is important that we recognize and honor the people who played key roles in bringing about peace and stability.”
Others, like the Director General of the Center, Mrs. Asabe Vilita Bashir, and the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Women Affairs, Mrs. Monilola Udoh, agreed with what Remi Tinubu said.
They both cheered the growing power of women in the effort to rebuild the country.
In her speech, Dr. Maryam Abacha prayed for the success of the country and the current government.
She agreed that most of the powerful women are educated, and she told them to use their positions to change the country.
She also said that all women should be pushed to learn skills that will help the country grow.
“I want to ask you all to make sure that no woman is left out of duties. I’m glad to have helped set up this center, and I thank Remi and the center for thinking I was good enough to have my name on this building.
“I’ll put some of our interviews and events on paper for history and to inspire you to do better than us, since most of us didn’t finish high school. We did our best and left the rest, but now we have educated and intelligent people who will take Nigerian women to the best places in the world.”
The event added another part to the story of peace and unity among women, which is getting longer and longer.
