President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed why he has been appointing women head if the ministry for finance since his administration came on board in 2015.
According to the president, he appoints women because he has trust in them and would give them more recognition in his second term in office.
President Buhari made this known on Wednesday when he received some representatives of Nigerian women on a Sallah homage at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I think the biggest trust any leader will entrust, whether in a household, a town or a country is to give the treasury to the women. Since I came women are in charge of the treasury.
“So, I don’t think it is the number that matters, the fundamental thing is who hold the bag. Look at the treasury and look at the civil service. Even with this, you are still asking for more. In the spirit of Oliver Twist, we will watch out the numbers.”
