Felicia Sani, the National President of the association, highlighted the thriving businesses of market women under the leadership of President Bola Tinubu, attributing their success to the peaceful environment fostered by his administration. She called on the First Lady to continue supporting market women at all levels, providing the necessary resources for business expansion.

Expressing gratitude for the warm reception, Ms. Joy Okosa, Assistant Director in the Women Affairs Secretariat, FCT Administration, conveyed the commitment of the administration to continually support women. The gesture reflects a collective effort to strengthen ties and foster mutual support between the First Lady and the vibrant market community.
