The Iyaloja-general of Lagos State, Folasade Tinubu-Ojo, has updated her profile on the microblogging site, Twitter, reflecting the title ‘first daughter of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN)’.
This is coming after her father, President Bola Tinubu, was sworn in as the President on Monday.
Tinubu-Ojo currently has over 21 thousand followers on the popular microblogging site.
A check on her Twitter bio reads, “This is the Official Handle of the Iyaloja General of Nigeria. The First Daughter of the FRN.”
Also, in a series of tweets, Tinubu-Ojo said she had launched an initiative to support her father’s administration.
“Friends of Iyaloja Initiative (FoI) unveiled today. I can boldly say again that our youths, women and the vulnerable shall be attended to by this administration. I will fight for this cause and I believe that God Almighty shall crown our efforts with unprecedented success.
“I have decided to use my little wealth of experience, connections and human resources available to me to support my dad’s administration.
“FoI shall be focusing on: youth and women empowerment. Empowering people with special needs. Empowering the vulnerable and several other programs aimed at affecting the lives of Nigerians; especially, those in the grassroots.
“We shall be in partnership with other notable NGOs with track records of excellence in the key areas. We shall also seek collaborations with several governmental agencies, ministries and parastatals created to serve Nigerians in areas that pertain to our operational cycle.
“I can boldly say again that our youths, women and the vulnerable shall be attended to by this administration. I will fight for this cause and I believe that God Almighty shall crown our efforts with unprecedented success,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, reactions have continued to trail her updated Twitter bio, with users on the app alleging that there is an agenda behind the move.
A popular tweep, David Hundeyin, wrote, “Iyaloja General of Nigeria. These people legit have no greater ambition than to cut tickets every day for every Nigerian citizen. Even Buhari was more subtle.”
Another tweep, David Onyemaizu, wrote, “Iyaloja General of Nigeria/First Daughter of the FRN? This is just day two of your father being in power & you already think it’s a monarchy or a family business? Well, she’s actually free to use whatever titles she wants on her bio. Only becomes a problem if validated by.”
“The Iyaloja General of Nigeria. The First Daughter of the FRN. Thank God Nigeria has had Presidents before,” Karo commented.
Another tweep Ferejogi wrote, “For those who didn’t know, Folashade Tinubu-Ojo has always been the Iyaloja-General of Nigeria. This happened several years ago. If you don’t know something, just say you don’t know. Admit your ignorance.”
