“Since the inception of the civilian government in 1999, no Yoruba person has become the first lady of the country. I want to be the first Yoruba woman.
“I want Yoruba people to support the candidacy of Atiku. Atiku’s victory will make me the first lady of the country.”
Also stating that her husband will unify the people of Nigeria if he is elected president, Titi said Atiku wants to give back to society.
“During his youthful days, he attended schools for free. The government-sponsored their education and gave them stipends. The government also provided jobs.
“After he had passed through that stage, he came to the understanding that the government had done wonderful things for him. Hence, he developed the desire to pay back the good deeds to Nigerians owing to what the country had done for him.
“My husband said he will do five things for Nigeria. He said he will fix Nigeria. There is no unity in the country. The country is currently in disarray."
