Mrs. Aisha Buhari Calls On Women To Avoid Water-Borne Diseases By Drinking Only Clean Water

Wife of the President, Her Excellency Mrs. Aisha Buhari has called on Nigerians to ensure that they use clean and safe drinking water in order to avoid water borne diseases.

 She made the call while commissioning a borehole donated by her project Future Assured to Gofindacommunity near the FCT, in her speech Mrs. Buhari asked communities to take charge of their health by promoting filtering in areas where clean water is a huge challenge.

Mrs. Buhari, who was represented by the former Deputy Governor of Plateau State Mrs. Pauline Tallenurged organizations and philanthropic individuals to replicate her gesture in other communities as that is the surest way of improving the health of communities. She also called on Gofinda community to protect the borehole from vandalism.

The village head of the community Mr. Tukura Ismail appreciated the gesture of Her Excellency, and commended her philanthropic gestures in poor and distant communities across Nigeria especially in the area of health promotion and said his community will make the best use of the new borehole.

The youth leader of the community Tukura Al Mustapha, speaking at the event, said before construction of the borehole they had to walk long distances daily to fetch water from a stagnant lake, which exposed them to water borne diseases, he further assured Mrs. Buhari that the borehole would be well protected.

This brings to four, the total number of boreholes so far donated by Future Assured, the initiative of the wife of the president. Her Excellency’s drive towards reducing medical challenges affecting women, new-born, children and adolescents in Nigeria, will thrive better with supply of potable water, especially in hard to reach communities.


  1. God bless Mrs Aisha for her kind gesture

  2. so clean water is accessible to all in Nigeria? you can only avoid drinking bad or unclean water if you have an option to 'clean and safe water which sadly is still a luxury and dream to millions living in Nigeria. sad,but reality of life in Nigeria.

  3. Provide lasting clean water solutions everywhere first.

  4. She didn't call on human beings to drink portable water only. She chose TO CALL ON WOMEN.

    These wannabe feminists can't stop embarrassing themselves.

  10. Buhari just deceived the lots of you by saying she won't be called the first lady. What is the difference betwrrn the role she's playing now and that of a first lady? And to worsen it all, she's only concerned with the north. She acts like other regions don't exist. Stupid first family.
