Nigeria’s First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, appears set for a new Nigeria even with the lingering electoral dispute, as she appeals to wives of former governors for support.

She also reminded the wives of former All Progressives Congress (APC) governors at the State House, Abuja on Friday that the task of nation building was too heavy to the extent that women would play a pivotal role in achieving the objective.

The First Lady explained to them that the meeting was to get their support for the various programmes of the government and the “Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), in particular.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu further told them that they would be partnering with the various incumbents in their states in this regard.

Her words: “I will also be bringing on board wives of various religious leaders and traditional rulers; the traditional rulers have already visited the President. So, we can all find ways to ameliorate the effects of the new policies of government and make things better for all of us.

“These women are all mothers of the nation in their own spaces, states. It is familiar terrain and since I cannot be everywhere at the same time, I need them to partner with me on this and help nurse the nation back to health”.

She pointed out that the development would not encroach on the incumbent governors’ wives but to glean help from the former governors’ wives.

Senator Oluremi Tinubu thanked them for their support during the electioneering which culminated in the victory of the president, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and others.

She said that the time was rife for the actualization of all that was promised during the elections and much more, hence, “this strategic meeting”.
