Nigeria’s First Lady, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, has acknowledged the contributions of the African Union (AU) Commission to peace-building and conflict resolution on the African continent.

She commended the Commission for its efforts at strengthening the African First Ladies Peace Mission (AFLPM).

Aisha Buhari, who spoke today, March 17, when she received in audience, a 6-man delegation from the Commission, in Abuja, however, stressed the need for more women’s involvement, saying that women are the main victims of conflict.

The First Lady, who is the President of the African First Ladies Peace Mission, called for the recognition of first ladies as facilitators.

“Africa has many present and past First Ladies who are willing and ready to provide their services to this cause and all they need is a platform like the Africa First Ladies Peace Mission.”

Aisha Buhari said that the building of the headquarters of the Mission was conceived by Nigeria to provide such a platform that will also serve as a secure environment for women of all shades and ages to connect. The building, which she said is 90 percent complete, is to be commissioned in May 2023.
