On Wednesday, the First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, in Abuja, met with the female lawmakers in the 10th National Assembly, where she urged them to work together and remain teachable as they discharge their duties for the next four years.
She said: “As a former lawmaker, I advise you to please work together, irrespective of party affiliation, because the success of the nation depends on this. My advice is to be teachable. Stay that way. Learn new things. Try it. You can’t say you are all-knowing,” Mrs Tinubu said when she received female senators and members of the House of Representatives at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Special Adviser to the First Lady, Busola Kukoyi, disclosed this in a statement she signed on Wednesday titled, ‘The First Lady Oluremi Tinubu encourages female National Assembly members to remain committed to constituents.’
The statement quoted her as saying: “You are the women here at the National Assembly for the masses, and you should not take this for granted”.
“As a former lawmaker, I advise you to please work together, irrespective of party affiliation, because the success of the nation depends on this.”
She urged the women not to lose their femininity in the execution of their duties.
