The first lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu has assured of federal government’s commitment to providing equal access to opportunities and support for women and women with disabilities in agriculture sector.

The First lady made the commitment Tuesday at the launching ceremony of the Renewed Hope Initiative Women Agricultural Support Program in the North-East geo-political zone held in Maiduguri, Borno State.

About 120 women farmers, 20 from each of the six northeast states received N500,000 each and 100 people with disabilities from Borno each received N100,000.

Represented by the wife of the Vice president who is also the Vice Chairman of Renewed Hope initiatives, Nana Kashim Shettima, Mrs Oluremi Tinubu said “today, we are supporting twenty (20) women farmers per state in the Northeast zone with the sum of Five Hundred Thousand Naira (N500,000) each.”

“The draft cheque will be handed over to the first ladies of Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Taraba, and Yobe States who are also RHI State Coordinators for onward disbursement to all beneficiaries in their respective states. These farmers are those in the agricultural sector, animal husbandry, poultry and fish farming.”

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Special Needs and Equal Opportunities, Hon. Mohammed Abba Isa, noted that the initiative was aimed at harnessing and unlocking the boundless potential in the fertile soil of the North-East, where the resilience of the people has endured the harshest of challenges by empowering the women who are the backbone of our agricultural sector, and ensuring that no one is left behind, especially those with disabilities.

Isa stated that the significance of women in agriculture cannot be overstated as they are not only cultivators of the land but also nurturers of families and communities.

“Despite their pivotal role, women often face numerous challenges, including limited access to resources, land rights, and financial support. The Renewed Hope Initiative seeks to address these barriers and provide women with the tools, training, and resources they need to thrive in the agricultural sector.”

Abba Isa lauded the first lady, Mrs. Oluremi Tinubu, for her visionary leadership and unwavering dedication to the well-being of the less privileged people.

He called for partnership and collaboration and the need to work together to turn renewed hope into tangible progress, transforming the lives of women and persons with disabilities across the nation.
