Mrs Oluwakemi Mimiko, Wife of the Ondo State governor yesterday called for the recognition of the office of the wives of the President and governors in the country.
She spoke as a guest lecturer at Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko during the 4th Research and Development lecture entitled: “Women and Development.”
Mrs Mimiko said it “ is a wrong notion that the offices of the wives of President and governors should not be recognized.
“While it is been argued that the offices of the wives of the President and the governors should not be recognized in the country, yet they still receive piles of mails in their offices mainly requesting for financial assistance.”
Mrs Mimiko said Nigerians should wake up from the deceit and officially recognize the offices to complement that of their husbands.
