Nigeria’s First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has met with Nigeria’s youngest female lawmaker and member of Kwara State House of Assembly, Hon. Rukayat Shittu.
Miss Shittu is representing Owode/Onire state constituency in the Kwara State House of Assembly.
The meeting between the president’s wife and Hon. Shittu took place at the Presidential Villa in Abuja on the sidelines of a scholarship award presentation to female tertiary institution students last weekend.
The programme was hosted by the office of the First Lady on the platform of her pet project, the Renewed Hope Initiative.
The lawmaker represented the wife of Kwara State governor, Ambassador Olufolake AbdulRazaq, at the event.
Reports has it that a brilliant Kwaran, Ayodele Khadijat Damilola of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, was one of the recipients of the scholarship.
Damilola was nominated for the scholarship award by the Ajike People’s Support Centre – the pet project of Mrs AbdulRazaq in Kwara State.
Mrs Tinubu expressed delight over meeting the female lawmaker physically, even though they had been speaking on phone.
She advised Hon. Rukkayat Shittu to remain focused and be diligent in her legislative responsibilities, noting that she must remain on course at all times.
