The wife of the president, Her Excellency Dr Mrs. Aisha Buhari has asked Nigerians to decide this weekend, whether the poorer should become poorer and the rich richer or we have a society where the gap begins to be reduced.
She said this on Thursday while presenting empowerment packs to 1,250 women and youths from the six Area council of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.
Mrs Buhari, said poverty was one of the indices that encouraged people to embrace vices like terrorism kidnapping and begging.
