Wife of the president, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, says there is need for proper rehabilitation and psychological therapy for women and children who are victims of the Boko Haram insurgency.

Mrs Buhari, in her message to the 2016 International Women's Day, called for special attention for areas ravaged by the insurgency to boost the spirit and morale of the inhabitants, especially women and children.

The message was contained in a statement issued last night by her media aide, Mallam Zakari Yau Nadabo.

Mrs Buhari said the theme of this year's Women's Day: "Pledge for Parity" was apt as it would challenge world leaders to take actions with special emphasis on the dynamics of modern society in which women had proved their capacity in chosen fields of endeavour.

The president's wife also charged governments at all levels and other stakeholders on women empowerment.
