The UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed and UN Resident Coordinator, Mr Mohammed Fall disclosed at the State House, Abuja during a visit to the first lady.

She acknowledged the efforts of the first lady on women empowerment and reproductive health, and congratulated the government for the successes recorded in the health sector.
