Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, the iyaloja-general of Lagos, has added ‘first daughter of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN)’ to her Twitter bio after Bola Tinubu’s inauguration as president of Nigeria.
Tinubu and Kashim Shettima were sworn in as president and vice-president of the federation on May 29 at Eagle Square in Abuja.
Tinubu’s inauguration automatically confers the first lady title on his wife and his family as the first family of the country.
However, in what could be a first on these shores, Tinubu-Ojo, who is also the daughter of the president, edited her bio to include that she is now the first daughter of Nigeria.
The iyaloja also floated a non-governmental organisation known as ‘Friends of Iyaloja Initiative’, through which she says she will support her father’s administration.
The launch took place in Abuja.
“Friends of Iyaloja Initiative (FoI) unveiled today”, she tweeted.
“I have decided to use my little wealth of experience, connections and human resources available to me to support my dad’s administration.
“FoI shall be focusing on: youth and women empowerment. Empowering people with special needs. Empowering the vulnerable and several other programs aimed at affecting the lives of Nigerians; especially, those in the grassroots.
“We shall be in partnership with other notable NGOs with track records of excellence in the key areas. We shall also seek collaborations with several governmental agencies, ministries and parastatals created to serve Nigerians in areas that pertain to our operational cycle.
“I can boldly say again that our youths, women and the vulnerable shall be attended to by this administration. I will fight for this cause and I believe that God Almighty shall crown our efforts with unprecedented success,” she added.
