Nigeria outgoing First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has officially engaged the wife of the President-elect, Oluremi Tinubu, to acquaint her with duties of the Office of First Lady.
Aish received Oluremi on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, and handed over some documents to her to serve as guide for the duties of the office of the First Lady.
She expressed confidence in the ability of the incoming first lady to deliver on the task ahead.
News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that the event signalled the formal transition of official engagements in the office of the first lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“As you are all aware, the role of the First Lady is unconstitutional, but we enjoy the goodwill of the citizens in order to carry out some basic things, like humanitarian activities.
“We partner with a lot of Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) in order to help our citizens, and I have enjoyed that goodwill for the last eight years.
“So, I have prepared a handover, just to guide you, and see the NGOs that we have worked with,” Aisha said.
Oluremi Tinubu appreciated the outgoing First Lady for exhibiting a high sense of leadership with dexterity in handling the affairs of her office.
“We are very humbled by what you have done. You have exhibited great leadership and dexterity in the way you do things.
“I want to sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart because you don’t come into this role and say you know it all.
“I know I served many years ago as the Governor’s wife for eight years, but now things have changed and are being done differently. I have been in the legislative arm for 12 years now.
“We promise you that you will be proud of the work we will do,” she said.
