First Lady meets governors’ wives in Abuja over pet project

Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, on Friday met with the wives of the 36 State Governors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

She used the opportunity to formally introduce and acquaint them with the objectives and mission of her pet project, Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI).

The First Lady 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.

She pointed out that she will require the support of the wives of the state Governors as she plans to reach every nook and cranny of the country with her message of renewed hope.

Mrs Tinubu noted that looking at the past can most assuredly chart a path for the present and future and this can best be done collectively for a better and more sustainable impact.

The First Lady assured the Governors’ wives that the Renewed Hope Initiative would in no way interfere with their personal programs and projects.

She said she believes that support from the wives of Governors 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.

While speaking with Journalists after the meeting, Wife of Kwara State Governor, Olufolake Abdulrazak, buttressed the willingness and commitment of the wives of the Governors to support RHI, stating that they will go back and elect zonal coordinators to take the mantle to ensure that the grassroots are reached.

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