While noting that kinetic approaches have not been successful in ending conflicts, Mrs. Buhari says other approaches must be pursued such as constructive engagement with wealthy individuals to create deliberate opportunities for poverty reduction, in addition to engaging the media as a key player to be tasked with its agenda-setting role.
The first lady also spoke on the recently completed AFLPM Secretariat in Abuja which will be commissioned today describing its completion as a true testament of the AFLPM mission and vision to serve as a supportive platform and mechanism for the women-led initiatives that will contribute to the advancement of peace, stability and security on the continent.
