To be seen as mothers, as helpers. Until we as women unite, we are not going anywhere. We have to unite. We have to remove our differences, it doesn’t matter where you come from or it doesn’t matter who you love, you are a woman, you are a mother”, she stated

“At this juncture, I call on women of Nigeria to support Mrs. Tinubu in the office she is today. She has shown that she can help women of Nigeria, she can support the children of Nigeria. And together we will be strong, together, one day, we will find amongst us, one of us that can be the leader of this country.”

“Of course, nothing good comes without some pains and the president is always appreciative of that. As one of the mothers of the nation, I plead for more understanding, cooperation, and support of Mr President at this challenging and difficult time’, Akande said
