Wife of the president, Aisha Buhari, Thursday, announced her decision to be addressed as the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
She also said her new title would take effect immediately, noting that her decision would resolve the issue of the title of wives of governors.
Ivotesng.com recalls that President Muhammadu Buhari promised, while contesting in 2014, that he would not have an office of the first lady, saying such office is not provided for in the constitution.
Ivotesng.com also notes that Aisha Buhari agreed with the President on assumption of office to be addressed as the wife of the president.
Mrs. Buhari disclosed her new official title at the presentation of awards to the former and current wives of governors of the 36 states.
Speaking during the event held at the Banquet Hall of the Presidential Villa, Abuja, she said: “When my husband was elected newly I personally chose to be called the wife of the President.
“But, I realised that it causes confusion from the state as to whether the wives of state governors are to be addressed as the first ladies or wives of the governors.”
“So, forgive me for confusing you from the beginning, but now I chose to be called the first lady,” she declared.
