Iyaloja-general of Nigeria Folasade Tinubu-Ojo has named herself the ‘First daughter of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN).’
Mrs Tinubu-Ojo, daughter of President Bola Tinubu, inherited the market leader title from her deceased grandmother, Abibatu Mogaji.
Following her father’s inauguration as the 16th President of Nigeria, Mrs Tinubu-Ojo edited her Twitter bio to read: “This is the Official Handle of The Iyaloja General of Nigeria || The First Daughter of the FRN.”
On Tuesday, she announced a non-governmental organisation known as ‘Friends of Iyaloja Initiative’ through which she says she will support her father’s administration.
“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.
