He said; the Nigeria constitution does not provide for office of first lady and there is’nt any official role for presidents’ wives. He said this during an exclusive interview with Weekly Trust in Kaduna. According to him, there are ministries which are constitutional like the Ministry of
Women Affairs and they should be allowed to play their roles.
