In a statement to mark World Autism Awareness Day, Mrs. Tinubu emphasised that early diagnosis and access to support services are critical to helping those on the autism spectrum reach their full potential.

“I urge parents and caregivers to be attentive to developmental milestones and seek professional help if any concerns arise,” she urged.

“I salute and celebrate the unwavering love and dedication of families with loved ones who are autistic,” Mrs. Tinubu stated.
