Aisha Buhari
As the world celebrated Mothering Sunday yesterday, the women in the Aso Villa Chapel have honoured the Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, describing her as a true mother of the nation.

Mrs. Buhari was honoured at the Sunday Service to mark Mothers’ Day at the church in Abuja. The Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, and his wife, Dolapo, were also in attendance at service.

The chairman of the Federal Civil Service Commission (FCSC), Deaconess Joan Ayo, on behalf of the women, commended the president’s wife in her support for her husband in building a virile nation.

“She is a mother and the mother of the nation and she has demonstrated that in so many ways,” she said.

Deaconess Ayo who described the wife of the president as a loving mother said though when
Mrs. Buhhari marked her birthday and the church visited, she was not in a good mood, her joy and happiness were reignited when President Muhammadu Buhari returned from his medical leave hale and hearty.

“Now we want to use this opportunity to celebrate her,” Ayo said.

The wife of the president, who was represented by Mrs. Grace Chamah, was presented a portrait depicting the role of a mother in the upbringing of a child.

In her sermon, the wife of the vice president, Pastor Dolapo Osinbajo, urged mothers in the country to teach their children virtues.

Reading from the book of Proverbs 31: 1-10 and Judges 4:4-9, Mrs. Osinbajo charged them to be good women.

“The key thing in motherhood is the children. We need to teach our children the right way. Man shall not live by bread alone; so mothers need to teach our children spiritual things,” she said.

Citing Mark 6:12-28, the wife of the vice president acknowledged that not all mothers are good and godly, stressing that King Herod’s wife is a worst case of motherhood in the Bible.
“She is anti-human, anti-gospel and anti-Christ,” she said, and enjoined mothers to strive to be a role model byexhibiting the attributes of a Christian mother.

She stated the life of Deborah in the Bible should be a great lesson for women looking at Judges 5:6-7.

“This is the kind of mothers we need today. She is a woman of great strength. There is a call today for Nigerian mothers to arise. Deborah arose for the people then.Mothers, it is a day for celebration and it is also a day to remember our calling. A day to remember what the Lord requires of us,” Mrs. Osinbajo remarked.

The Chaplain of the Villa Chapel, Pastor Seyi Malomo, described mothers as “special creature made from the refined product,” and congratulated all mothers on the celebration.
Special gifts were given to the wife and mother of the vice president the wife of the chaplain, Mrs.ObiageliMalomo; and wife of the church’s administrator, Mrs. Tina Ambi, among others
