At last, Adeleke takes stand as governor’s wives litter state with different posters on Tinubu’s visit 


Governor Ademola Adeleke of Osun state has officially announced his first wife, Titilola, as the first lady.

Titilola and Ngozi have been attending official functions as the wife of the governor since November 27, 2022.

However, controversies that surrounded who will receive the first lady of Nigeria, Oluremi Tinubu, during her visitation to the state, Tuesday, led to the official announcement of Titilola because posters of the two wives of the governor have circulated in the state.

However, a statement by the governor’s spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed, Monday, said “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 (Tuesday).

“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 flier circulating purportedly from the Office of Erelu Ngozi Adeleke, the wife of the State Governor, is fake news and the person behind it was nabbed and questioned last night.

“The said flier was never authorized by Erelu Ngozi Adeleke. The material was manufactured and shared by elements who wanted to sow discord and create an atmosphere of confusion,” the statement added.
