Obioma Imoke, wife of the Cross River State Governor has also affirmed that the office of the First Lady is not in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
While speaking on a recent Personality TV Show, with screen diva, Mo Abudu on ‘Moments With Mo’ recently, the Cross River First Lady said, the role of a governor’s wife is only complementary to the work that the governor was voted to do.
Responding to a question on how it has been like being the First Lady of Cross River State?
Mrs. Imoke said: “Well that is a big question. I like the politics, I like the campaigning, I like being able to do things for people and all that; being first lady or wife of the governor is a lot of responsibilities, and you have to be able to keep cool to know what you are here for.
“I always tell people that this particular role is not an office because it is not in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. The role of the wife of the governor is complementary.
“So I take time to really hear what he has to say and what he wants to do so that I can complement that effort in my own little way”.
Mrs. Imoke also spoke of the work her child care organization, Destiny Child is doing with street kids and the Calabar Festival and Carnival.
She said the Calabar Festival is a time for people from all over the world to come and rest and unwind after a long year.
“It’s a time to rest and to unwind after a long year’s work. We will wear beautiful costumes and feathers. My band is Master Blasta. For about seven years we did not win but we won last year’s competition and so we are the defending champions”.
