President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he laced women in strategic positions of his government, such as the financial sector.

According to him, this is to ensure effective management of limited resources available and promote a stronger sense of inclusiveness.

The President said this when he received a delegation of National, Zonal, State and FCT Women leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the party’s Woman Leader, Salamatu.Baiwa, on Thursday at the State House in Abuja.

President Buhari believes the nation also has many female technocrats with local and international experiences on economy and finance.

“I am happy that I can defend myself very effectively on this issue. The APC party leader is my witness. Since the coming into power of this administration I have handed over the treasury to women,” he was quoted as saying in a statement by his media adviser, Femi Adesina.

He added, “Even at household level, you hand over the money to women to manage. It can be taken to the level of managing the country’s treasury as well.

“I have consistently given it to women. It is strategic.

I am conscious of the leadership roles of women in the society and by my action I have justified my belief.”
