Abimbola Fashola, the wife of the immediate Governor of Lagos State, Raji Fashola, has declared that the new first lady of the state, Bolanle Ambode, is not her puppy as some people had speculated.
The erstwhile first lady said this penultimate Saturday during a thank-you party she puts together to appreciate Lagos women for their immense support in the past eight years. After expressing her appreciation, Abimbola, officially introduced the new first lady to the women and also urged them to extend the love shown to her to Bolanle.
While rallying support for the first lady, Abimbola squealed that the new first lady would be allowed to operate all alone without anyone’s supervision. “She’s no one’s toddler. She will be herself. She will do things she’s passionate about,” she said.
Before last week inauguration, in the past three months Bolanle and Bimbola had become an item, gracing A-list together in gracious attires. During those moments, Abimbola ensured that Bolanle was taught all the exigencies of the first lady office. And having certified that she’s learnt all the ropes, it’s now time for her to step back for the reigning queen of the court.
