Former Lagos State Governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, on Thursday, said the concerns by some individuals that the constitution did not recognise the role of First Lady had been “forever laid to rest” by the performance of the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.
Tinubu said this in his remarks at the public presentation of Aisha’s biography, “Aisha Buhari: Being different,” written by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Administration and Women Affairs, Dr Hajo Sani.
The APC leader, who is the chairman of the occasion, said, “Given the First Lady’s achievements, no one can reasonably question the role of a First Lady any longer.
“Remember there were those who argued that the constitution does not assign an official role to the First Lady.
“Because of Dr Mrs Aisha Buhari, their concerns have been forever laid to rest.
“The First Lady has played an uplifting, unifying role both in symbol and substance.
“She has been a voice of conscience calling us to be our better selves for the good of the nation and for the betterment of the weakest, most vulnerable among us.
“As such, she has been a strong pillar of support not only to the President but also to the Nigerian people whom they both serve with such patriotic commitment and high purpose.”
Tinubu said the role of the First Lady was instrumental to society and to how a great number of people relate to government.
