Aisha Buhari also attended the Organisation of African First Ladies Against HIV/AIDS (OAFLA) meeting on improving the sexual and reproductive health of the adolescent girl on Wednesday.

“It is important for us to appreciate that adolescence is the age at which girls are most vulnerable and impressionable at the same time. It is at this time that parental guidance and family oversight become critical and most needed in their lives.

It is important that the UN Agenda 2030 is conscientiously implemented with adolescents in mind, and their health and well-being given paramount consideration at both national and global levels,” she said in a post on Facebook.
