First Lady Dame Patience Jonathan To Host First Women And Girls Summit



I am endorsing this event, because it is for the benefit of Nigerian women and girls who suffer most in conflicts as we have seen from the horrible and terrible atrocities of terrorists in Nigeria from the Niger Delta to Lake Chad.
We must unite to do our best for the protection, security and welfare of our mothers and daughters and save them from the dangers of conflict no matter the circumstances of their birth, faith or tribe.
