Remi Tinubu’s visit: Controversy as Adeleke’s wives appear in separate fliers, Osun State clarifies First Lady’s identity

Ngozi and Titilola Adeleke, the wives of Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke, have sparked controversy with posters welcoming Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, to the state.

These posters were created on Tuesday, April 23, to welcome the First Lady during her visit to Osogbo, Osun State capital.

Tinubu is expected to grace Tuesday’s turning of the SOD ceremony christened Alternative High School for Girls to be launched at Oke D. O. Ilesha, Osogbo.

The posters displayed images of the two women extending a warm welcome to Tinubu, as they both claimed the title of First Lady.

On Monday, April 22, the governor’s wives endorsed themselves as the First Lady of Osun State in the two posters sighted by Premium Times.

In her poster, Ngozi featured a picture of Tinubu alongside the text, “Welcome to the state of living spring. Experience the beauty of Osun State’s landscape.”

However, Titilola’s welcoming poster featured her picture alongside Tinubu, with her husband, Adeleke, in the middle.

The poster affixed to what appears to be a utility pole bore the message, “Official turning of the SOD ceremony of the Alternative High School For Girls at Oke D.O, Ilesha Road, Osogbo, Osun State—commissioned today, 23rd April 2024 by Her Excellency Senator Oluremi Tinubu (CON OON), The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Since Adeleke assumed office as the 6th civilian governor of Osun State on November 27, 2022, citizens have been pondering the identity of the First Lady.

The governor’s wives played significant roles in his gubernatorial aspirations and campaigns.

However, on Monday, April 22, the Osun State Government clarified the confusion in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Oluomo Alimi.

It partly read: “The wife of Osun State Governor Titilola Adeleke has described the Tuesday visit of the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, to Osogbo, the State capital, as yet another important avenue to be maximized to the fullest because of the many goodies associated with such a visit for the growth and development of people, especially women and children’’.

According to the statement, Titilola hosted members of a special committee established by her husband for the visit of the First Lady.
