Oluremi Tinubu, the President’s wife, assumed her first official role as Nigeria’s First Lady on Monday in Abuja.
Tinubu officially met with the heads of units in the first lady’s office and took a tour of the office in the company of Permanent Secretary Tijani Umar and other heads of units, as well as the media team.
During the meeting organised by the permanent secretary, Tinubu applauded the immediate past government for leaving capable hands behind for her to work with.
“I am delighted to meet you all. I believe that as we transit into this new role that God has blessed us with, I will need your experience in serving our people. We thank God that the outgoing administration was able to leave us in very capable hands,” she said.
The first lady said that she would engage the unit heads whenever the need arose.
“I’m also trying to get some political appointees to join you,” she added.
In his response, the permanent secretary expressed the readiness of the staff members in the unit to work with Tinubu.
“In due course, Your Excellency, you are going to be meeting with other members of staff because it is a privilege for them to know the boss they will be serving,” he said.
