Wife of President-elect Oluremi Tinubu has been urged to prepare herself for the task of being first lady, a position that comes with lots of criticism.

Former first lady and widow of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, Turai Yar’Adua while speaking during a BBC Hausa interview stated that lots of sycophants and people who are itching to get favours from President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu will besiege Mrs. Tinubu and she need to have lots of patience.

“My advice to the incoming First Lady is she should be patient and continuously be patient, if her husband would be like Umaru in ensuring righteousness in his government, then she will be the target because I was the victim of that.

“My husband was not alcoholic, not a womanizer and not corrupt so people started attacking his wife just to make him angry because he loved his wife.

“So she should be ready for this and be patient, she should be giving him advice also because she is the only one to give him truthful advice, all those surrounded him will only tell him what they want. But a wife will always sit with her husband and tell him this is what I heard you should investigate.”
