PGA's Spouse pays courtesy call on First Lady

Aishath Suiza, the Spouse of the President of the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly (PGA) and Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdulla Shahid, has paid a courtesy call on First Lady Fazna Ahmed. The call was held Saturday morning at Mulee'aage, the Presidential Residence.

Speaking during the call, First Lady Fazna noted that there are many individuals behind every victory for the nation, spotlighting the prominent role of women in national successes. Affirming the role of the PGA's Spouse in his success, the First Lady stated key to PGA Shahid’s achievements are the choices Suiza made to be the primary caregiver, including raising their children and looking after their parents. While the Maldives celebrates the PGA's homecoming this week, the country is equally celebrating women such as Suiza, whose often unacknowledged efforts greatly contribute to nation-building.

The First Lady also wished the PGA success on his “Five Rays of Hope” vision, expressing her optimism that the PGA would prioritise COVID-19 recovery, protecting the rights of women and women’s empowerment during his tenure.

Speaking during the call, the PGA's Spouse thanked the First Lady for extending the invitation to meet with her.
