Senator Oluremi Tinubu, First Lady of Nigeria, disagrees with rumors that she ordered the closing of the Aso Rock Chapel in the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Busola Kukoyi, the First Lady’s Special Adviser on Media, indicated that the First Lady never issued such an order. It was also said that the chapel is still working since a weekly meeting is being conducted there.
The statement read;
“Our attention has been drawn to a story making the rounds on social media about the purported closure of the As Rock Chapel by the First Lady of Nigeria, Sen Olurermi Tinubu OON, CON.
“We wish to state categorically that this is a fabrication and totally false representation of the true situation, as the First Lady at no time gave such directive that the Chapel be shut and the keys handed over to Her Excellency.
“However, Mr. President is yet to appoint a Chaplain for the chapel after the exit of the last Chaplain. As he only reserves the right to appoint a Chaplain for the Chapel.”
