Remi Tinubu welcomes Abuja’s first baby, urges exclusive breastfeeding


The wife of the President, Remi Tinubu, extended a warm welcome to the first baby of the year, Boluwatife Johnson, at the National Hospital in Abuja on Monday. 

Boluwatife entered the world at 12:03 am on January 1.

Mrs. Tinubu took the occasion to call upon influential figures in the country to collaborate with the government in bolstering the healthcare delivery system, emphasizing that the government cannot tackle this challenge alone.

In her address, she urged nursing mothers to prioritize the well-being of their infants by ensuring timely immunizations, practicing exclusive breastfeeding, and providing nutritious weaning food for optimal brain development. 

“I urge nursing mothers to take adequate care of their babies, ensure that they are immunised as and when due, practise exclusive breastfeeding and provide them with 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 said.

Additionally, the First Lady implored women to be aware of their HIV/AIDS status, underscoring the importance of health awareness and proactive measures for the well-being of mothers and children in the nation.
