President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, on Thursday joined world leaders and people around the world to commemorate the International Women’s Day 2018.

In a series of tweets on his @BukolaSaraki handle, the Senate President emphasised the role and significance of women in both the development of Nigeria, and the world.

He tweeted: “Today, on International Women’s Day, I join the world to celebrate our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, our colleagues and our friends who wake up each day and work to make the world a better place.

“In particular, today, I celebrate those women, who have played, and continue to play their part in the development of our country — in every sector, in every way, and at every point in our young, but significant history.

“As a father to three young women; a husband to a charismatic wife who is making great contributions in her own right; a colleague to a few but effective legislators; and a son — every day, I witness firsthand the strength and resilience of women.

“I see their impact in all areas of human endeavour, and testify to their resilience, their bravery, and their ability to get things done.

“Therefore, today, I join the world to press for progress and I recommit to pushing for more female participation in the economic and political processes of our nation.”
