The Iyalode of Yorubaland who doubles as the Iyalode of Egbaland, Chief Alaba Lawson, said the women leaders in Southwest will do all within their power to protect Tinubu’s administration from evil-minded people.

We are going to support this administration like we have done for others. We will rally round him to ensure his administration is successful. We have been praying for him (Tinubu). May God give him the divine wisdom to turn Nigeria into a better country,” she said.

Chief Lawson urged Tinubu to carefully select those that will work with him, saying that consideration should not be given to those that would make him deviate from his plans for Nigerians.

Nigeria, he said, is passing through some challenges noting that those challenges are surmountable.

She appealed to the President-elect to ensure that women are well represented in his cabinet.

Also speaking, the Iyalode of Lagos Chief Mrs Bintu Fatima Tinubu, said Tinubu is capable of leading the country going by his antecedents in Lagos.

Chief Tinubu said: “You’ve been in the country for a while; you’ve seen him from when he became a senator with the largest number of votes in the country. He did well in the Senate. After that he became the Governor of Lagos State. He performed excellently to the extent that governors from other states came to copy his initiatives to develop their states. He didn’t get the presidential mandate on a platter of gold; he worked hard to achieve it and I can assure you that he is going to work harder to meet the yearnings of Nigerians.

According to him, Tinubu’s experience in the private and public sectors would count in his favour in leading the country.

Once he gets his team right, things will fall in proper places. He certainly knows how to get the best people to deliver his programmes,” she said.

Iyalode Imesi Ile in Osun State, Chief Stella Adebayo called on government at all levels to carry the Iyalodes along for effective implementation of their programmes.

Chief Adebayo said “the Iyalodes are closer to the people and understand what they want. As you can see, we come from different states and communities, we are closer to them.”

She said the president-elect knows the value women will bring into his government.

Ajia Iyalode of Ibadanland Dr Ayomo Alaga, who represented Iyalode of Ibadanland, said Tinubu should consider 35 per cent Affirmative Action of the Beijing Conference.

According to her, women can help drive the president-elect’s agenda if given the proper role.
