Adamu emerged as APC helmsman at the February 26 national convention of the party held in Abuja.
Aisha said, “We are here to congratulate the party’s chairman and to thank the whole party stewards for the work they are doing and to also seek support for women, they should not be forgotten.”
Similarly, Minister of Women Affairs, Pauline Tallen, said: “The First Lady is here with her team to congratulate the national chairman for the opportunity God has given him to head the party and to thank him for the good work he has started doing and finally not to forget women.”
