“A Greater Nigeria Is Possible”- Oluremi Tinubu

Senator Oluremi Tinubu

First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu asked Nigerians to look beyond the present situation and see the bigger picture which has light at the end of the tunnel.

She spoke when wives of service chiefs and the inspector-general of police led by the wife of the chief of defense staff and president of, Defence and Police Wives Association, Mrs Oghogho Musa, visited her in Abuja yesterday.

In a statement released by the first lady’s media aide, Busola Kukoyi, the first lady said the administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu would do everything possible to ensure that it cushions the effects of the fuel subsidy removal until the gains of the policy begin to materialize. She said her pet project, the Renewed Hope Initiative, is also supporting the government in this regard, saying that is why she is soliciting the support of the wives of the service chiefs. “We will need your various associations from time to time, at least to be able to reach out to women in your various barracks, to reassure them that we mean well for this country and that they should be patient and that whatever we can do to ameliorate what the subsidy has meted to us, we believe there is always light at the end of the tunnel.

“It is a greater Nigeria we are looking out for and it is a legacy that our children and generations yet unborn, we would leave a Nigeria we can relate better as Nigerians and also look for the good of this nation and the wealth of this country can be greatly enhanced”.

The first lady also promised that the RHI would soon be reaching out to vulnerable widows of fallen officers in the military. Earlier, the leader of the delegation, wife of the chief of defence staff and president of, Defence and Police Officers Wives Association, Mrs Oghogho Musa assured that the various associations under Defence and Police Officers Wives are poised to partner with the Renewed Hope Initiative in all areas of its scope of coverage namely; agriculture, education, health, economic empowerment and social investment.

She said this is important because these are all areas of interest to all the associations.

One of the high points of the occasion was the investiture of the first lady as the grand matron of the Defence and Police Officers Wives Association, which is enshrined in the constitution of the various associations.
