First lady welcomes First Abuja’s baby of the year. Remi Tinubu, the President’s wife, welcomed her first child of the year, Boluwatife Johnson, on Monday at the National Hospital in Abuja.

Boluwatife was born on January 1 at 12:03 a.m.

Mrs Tinubu urged powerful people in the country to collaborate with the government to improve the country’s healthcare delivery system, since the government cannot do it alone.

“I encourage nursing mothers to take adequate care of their babies, to ensure that they are immunized on time, to practice exclusive breastfeeding, and to provide adequate nutritious and healthy weaning food for their brain development.”

“Expectant mothers should always take antenatal and postnatal care seriously, maintain basic hygiene at home, space their births, register their babies with the National Population Commission and make efforts to enrol them in school at the appropriate age,” she went on to say.

The First Lady also urged women to learn about their HIV/AIDS status.
