She, therefore, encouraged her colleagues to work in unison towards a glorious destiny for the continent. 

Aisha stated: "My dear colleagues as we conclude this Summit, let history guide us to ensure that the Africa we bequeath to our children today is better than the one we inherited.

''Let us commit ourselves to working together towards achieving a glorious destiny for all Africans." 

Earlier, the president congratulated his wife on her election and used the medium to appreciate her effort in acquiring a piece of land on behalf of all First Ladies for the development of a secretariat for the Mission in Abuja.

Buhari said: "It gladdens my heart to know that when completed the secretariat will serve several purposes including creating employment opportunities as well as generating income for sustainability."
