Mrs Tinubu, who arrived at the First Lady’s wing of the Presidential Villa, was in the company of her security aides.
She was received by the Permanent Secretary of the State House, Tijjani Umar, and other heads of units in the First Lady’s Office.
Mrs Tinubu was then guided on a tour of offices within the First Lady’s wing, comprising the Administrative, ICT, Catering, Media and Protocol Units.
Tinubu’s wife was born on 21 September 1960 to an Itsekiri mother and a Yoruba father.
She holds a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Ife, Osun State as well as a National Certificate of Education in Botany and Zoology from Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo State.
She served as the First Lady of Lagos State when her husband was governor of the state between 1999 and 2007, and after that, she was elected senator representing Lagos Central in the Senate in 2015.
Mrs Tinubu executed many philanthropic activities to alleviate the plight of vulnerable people in her Constituency.
She also has the honour of Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON) conferred on her in recognition of her achievements and contributions to societal upliftment.
