Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke has clarified that his wife, Mrs. Titilola Adeleke, is the official First Lady of the state and will receive Nigeria’s First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, during her visit on Tuesday.

ADULAWO News reports that this comes after two separate fliers, purportedly from the governor’s wives, welcoming Senator Tinubu to the state, went viral online.

In a statement, the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, confirmed that Mrs. Titilola Adeleke is the First Lady of Osun State and will host Senator Tinubu during her visit. He also dismissed the second flier, attributed to Mrs. Ngozi Adeleke, as fake and stated that the person behind it had been arrested.

Rasheed emphasized that there is no conflict over who will host the First Lady and that the state government is prepared to receive her and her team. The visit is scheduled to include the groundbreaking ceremony for the Alternative High School for Girls in Osogbo.”
ADULAWO News recall that the state government had announced Mrs Tinubu’s impending visit to the state on Tuesday during which she would turn the sod of the Alternative High School For Girls at Oke D.O, Ilesha Road, Osogbo.

Following the announcement, two different filers from Titilola and Ngozi, both wives of the governor welcoming the wife of the President to the state, went viral on the internet.

On the two filers, both women were referred to as First Lady of Osun State, raising concerns about who would receive Tinubu between the two wives of the governor.

However, in a statement on Monday, the spokesperson for the state governor, Olawale Rasheed, said Titilola Adeleke is the First Lady of the state and would receive Tinubu during the visit.

Rasheed described the flier purportedly from Ngozi as fake, saying that there was no conflict over who among his two wives would host the First Lady

He further said the flier circulating purportedly from the Office of Ngozi Adeleke, was fake, adding that the person behind it had been arrested.

Rasheed also said Ngozi did not authorise the flier, as the material was manufactured and shared by elements who wanted to sow discord and create an atmosphere of confusion.

The statement read, “The attention of Mr Governor has been drawn to fake news in circulation about conflict over who among the Governor’s two wives is to host the First Lady of Nigeria, Her Excellency, Senator Oluremi Tinubu on her official visit to the State tomorrow.

“For clarification, Chief (Mrs) Titilola Adeleke, the First Lady of Osun State, is officially hosting the First Lady of the Republic tomorrow in line with the directive of Mr Governor. There is no confusion on this official position.

“The state government under Governor Ademola Adeleke is set to receive the First Lady and her team in Osun State.”
