Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the First Lady of Nigeria, has met with First Ladies of different states.

Oluremi, on Friday, met with wives of the 36 state governors of the federation, soliciting their collaboration in the task of taking her pet-project, the Renewed Hope Initiative (RHI), to the grassroots nationwide.

A statement issued by her spokesperson, Busola Kukoyi, Senator Tinubu also used the forum to admonish the governors’ wives that the exalted office in which they have found themselves is for them to impact the lives of people nationwide.

According to the statement, the meeting was specifically scheduled to formally acquaint them with the objectives and the mission of her pet project, the RHI.

During the meeting, the First Lady congratulated the governors’ wives on the successful conduct of the 2023 elections which brought their husbands to office, saying it is now time to keep promises made during the polls.

She reminded them that their current exalted positions in Nigeria is an opportunity to impact more meaningfully, not only in the lives of people in their states, but the country in general.

While assuring the governors’ wives that the Renewed Hope Initiative will in no way interfere with their programs and projects in their respective states, the First Lady sought support to reach the grass roots, noting that “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.”

“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 added.

Speaking with newsmen after the meeting, wife of Kwara State Governor, Amb Olufolake Abdulrazak, expressed readiness of the governors’ wives to support the project. She said they would go back and elect zonal coordinators who would equally facilitate the desired reach at the grassroots. She further expresses confidence that the renewed hope initiative of the First Lady will go a long way to complement their individual projects in their various states.
