First Lady Oluremi Tinubu Urges Govs’ Wives To Impact Lives


Nigeria’s First Lady, Mrs Oluremi Tinubu, has urged wives of the 36 state governors to use their positions to impact lives positively in their respective states.

The First Lady made the call on Friday, July 14, 2023 while hosting the Governors’ wives in the State House, Abuja.

In a statement issued by the media aide to the First Lady, Busola Kukoy, she congratulated the wives of the governors on the successful conduct of the 2023 elections which brought their husbands to office and reminded them that it is time to keep promises made during the elections.

To achieve the objectives RHI, Mrs Tinubu said she will require the support of the wives of the state governors.

She charged the governors’ wives to reach out to the down trodden in their respective states, noting that looking at the past can most assuredly chart a path for the present and future and this can best be done collectively for better and more sustainable impact.

While urging the governors’ wives to key in into the RHI she assured them that the activities will in no way interfere with their personal programs and projects and that she believes that support would be impactful.

“I wish to remind each of us that the exalted positions we are in today should be seen as an opportunity to impact more meaningfully, not only in the lives of people in your states but Nigeria as a whole,” she said.

Addressing journalists after the visit, wife of Kwara State Governor, Ambassador Olufolake Abdulrazak, assured of the willingness and commitment of the wives of the governors to support the initiative.

She stated that the wives of the governors will go back and elect zonal coordinators to take the mantle to ensure that the grassroots are reached.

Abdulrasaq also confirmed that RHI will not in any way affect their individual projects in their various states but instead complement their own efforts.
