The First Lady stressed the importance of protecting the nation’s future by safeguarding children from such traumatic experiences.

In a statement issued by her Special Adviser, Media, Busola Kukoyi, Senator Tinubu expressed her concerns, stating, “Our hearts bleed. I call on the state governments that once we take hold of them, they deserve capital punishments. Why can’t they take men of their size, why are they touching women and children.”

Addressing women leaders, she encouraged them to play a crucial role in the nation’s development and set a robust agenda for women’s empowerment and inclusion.
