Tinubu’s Wife Oluremi: 5 Projects She Can Execute as First Lady 

Oluremi Tinubu, the  wife of Nigeria president-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a renowned Nigerian politician and businesswoman. From first lady of Lagos State to Senator of the Federal Republic, the educationist, administrator and philanthropist Oluremi Tinubu, is a force to reckon with.

As the incoming first lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, there are several projects she could execute to positively impact the country. These projects could focus on education and youth empowerment, women’s empowerment, healthcare, environmental sustainability, and humanitarian support. 

The former senator’s leadership skills and passion for making a difference in people’s lives make her a potential advocate for these types of projects, which could help improve the well-being of Nigerians across the country.

Education and Youth Empowerment

Oluremi could initiate and support programmes that focus on education and youth empowerment. This could include scholarships, mentorship programs, and vocational training programmes for youths.

As first lady of Lagos State, she established the New Era Foundation, dedicated to establishing centres for all round development of young ones and promoting public awareness on environmental health and community service. Alongside, it is also aimed at empowering women and senior citizens.

The foundation recently got a commendation from Seyi Bamigbade, the National Director General of All Progressive Council as a result of its tuition-free and scholarship scheme for 5,000 beneficiaries in Nigeria.

The incoming first lady is expected to carry on by empowering the young and senior citizens as she resumes office.

Women’s Empowerment

As a woman, Oluremi could focus on empowering other women through advocacy, mentorship, and providing access to resources such as micro-loans, skills training, and business development opportunities.

During one of her campaigns at the South-East in Owerri, she said women will be adequately represented in government if her husband was elected. She said women will have seats on her husband’s table. She also gave assurances to support women through different economic initiatives.

Senator Oluremi can look into fostering support for all women in the country especially in the rural areas of the country.

Healthcare Facilities

Oluremi could initiate and support programs that focus on improving access to healthcare for women and children, such as immunization programs, health education, and maternal and child health care services.

Recently, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State inaugurated the newly constructed Senator Oluremi Tinubu Amuwo-Odofin Ultra Modern Primary Health Care Centre in Amuwo-Odofin area of the state. Hon. Valentine Buraimoh, Chairman of Amuwo-Odofin Local Government, said the ultramodern primary health centre was named after Senator Oluremi Tinubu in recognition of her children-oriented programmes and initiative towards healthcare and health education.

As a result of this, Oluremi can build and invest more in child and adult healthcare programs across different States in the country which could serve as mini hospitals.  The features could include Laboratory, Mini Theatre, Wards, and so on

Environmental Sustainability

Senator Oluremi could initiate support programs that focus on promoting environmental sustainability, such as tree-planting campaigns, waste reduction and recycling initiatives, and renewable energy programs.

She can introduce and support legislation aimed at reducing carbon emissions and promoting renewable energy sources. This could include incentives for businesses to adopt green practices, or funding for research into clean energy technology, and so on.

She can also look into industries that are major polluters such as the oil and gas companies and initiate stricter regulations to limit emissions and other forms of pollution.

Humanitarian Support Project

There are several programs that can provide humanitarian support to vulnerable groups, such as orphans, widows, and people with disabilities. This could include the provision of food, shelter, and healthcare services, as well as education and skills training programs.

The three-term senator recently donated N50 million to the internally displaced persons in Bayelsa. As well as relief materials to victims of the flood disaster in the State, late last year. She also provided relief materials to widows in some parts of the FCT.

Promoting and supporting groups that support humanity, is one project the incoming first lady would look into as a form of giving back to the society.
