Ademola Adeleke, the governor of Osun, has clarified that Titilola, his wife, is the state’s first lady.


There was confusion on Monday after two different fliers emanated from the offices of Ngozi and Titilola, Adeleke’s wives, welcoming Oluremi Tinubu, Nigeria’s first lady, to the state.

On both fliers, the two women were addressed as the first lady of Osun state which sparked a wave of mixed reactions on social media.


However, Adeleke, in a statement through Olawale Rasheed, his spokesman, clarified that there is “no confusion on this official position”.

The governor stressed that Titilola is the state’s first lady and would be the one to host Remi on her arrival.

He also said the second flier was not authorised by Ngozi, adding that the person behind it had been “nabbed and questioned”.


“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,” the statement reads.

“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.”
