Tinubu’s daughter declares herself ‘First Daughter of Nigeria’, launches NGO
The first daughter of President Bola Tinubu, Mrs Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, has bestowed on herself the title of ‘Iyaloja of Nigeria’ that is ‘First Daughter of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN)’ barely 48 hours after her father’s inauguration as President of Nigeria.
The President’s daughter, who is also the ‘Iyaloja-General of Lagos’, took to her Twitter handle to announce her new title by updating her bio to include, ‘First Daughter of Nigeria’.
The Iyaloja also immediately launched a non-governmental organisation in Abuja known as ‘Friends of Iyaloja Initiative’ (FoI) for support towards her father’s administration.
She tweeted, ‘Friends of Iyaloja Initiative’ (FoI) is unveiled today. 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.
“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.”
