Wife of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Titi Abubakar has appealed to the Yoruba people to vote for her husband Atiku ahead of the general elections.
Titi who is of Yoruba descent has the ambition of becoming the first wife of the president who hails from the western region of the country.
She told the Cable during an interview on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, that no democratically elected government has ever had a Yoruba woman as first lady.
Titi told Yoruba BBC:
“Since the inception of the civilian government in 1999, no Yoruba person has become the first lady of the country. I want to be the first Yoruba woman.
“I want Yoruba people to support the candidacy of Atiku. Atiku’s victory will make me the first lady of the country.”
She added: “During his youthful days, he attended schools for free. The government sponsored their education and gave them stipends. The government also provided jobs.
“After he had passed through that stage, he came to the understanding that the government had done wonderful things for him. Hence, he developed the desire to pay back the good deeds to Nigerians owing to what the country had done for him.
“My husband said he will do five things for Nigeria. He said he will fix Nigeria. There is no unity in the country. The country is currently in disarray.”
