Gov Adeleke Names Titilayo Adele As Authentic First Lady Of Osun State

By Imuhanni Muhammed, Abeokuta

The Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has named the official first Lady in Osun following alleged power tussle between his two wives.

Banners and posters from the two wives of the governor had emerged with both welcoming Oluremi Tinubu to the state to inaugurate the construction of an Alternative High School for Girl children in Osogbo.

The two women, Mrs. Titilola Adeleke and Mrs. Ngozi Adeleke, both allegedly lay claim to the Office of the First Lady of the State.

In the poster belonging to Titilola Adeleke, she wrote: “Official turning of the sod ceremony of the Alternative High School For Girls at Oke D.O, Ilesha Road, Osogbo”

While Ngozi Adeleke wrote in her poster: “Welcome to the state of living spring. Experience the beauty of Osun State’s landscape” and signed off as the First Lady of Osun State.

In a statement on Monday, Governor Adeleke confirmed Mrs. Titilola Adeleke as the official First Lady of the State.

This was contained in a statement signed and  by the spokesperson to the governor, Olawale Rasheed

The statement reads: “I am elated to host our dear First Lady and my old colleague at the Senate. Our people must troop out to welcome her.

“She deserves a rousing welcome for endorsing Osun as the location for the alternative school for girls.”

“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 Federal Republic of Nigeria tomorrow in line with the directive of Mr Governor. There is no confusion on this official position.

“The flier circulating purportedly from the Office of Erelu Ngozi Adeleke, the wife of the State Governor, is fake news, and the person behind it was nabbed and questioned last night.

“The said flier was never authorized by Erelu Ngozi Adeleke. The material was manufactured and shared by elements who wanted to sow discord and create an atmosphere of confusion.

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