The wife of Atiku, Titi has been married to the former Vice President for 50 years. Titi Atiku, the wife of the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has appealed to the Yoruba ethnic group to vote for her husband so as to become the first Yoruba first Lady since 1999. She expressed her aim and desire to become the next First Lady in a video interview with the BBC. When Nigeria returned to democracy in 1999, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, a Yoruba man became the president of the country, but his wife, the Late Mrs. Stella Obasanjo was an Esan woman.

Following Obasanjo’s administration in 2007, the subsequent first ladies, Turai Yar’adua, Patience Jonathan, and Aisha Buhari are also non-Yoruba women. However, in her bid to become Nigeria’s president’s wife, Titi called on the Yorubas across the country to vote for her husband.

Titi also made some speech in an on-going video round social media, she said the only way she can become the First Lady is for the Yoruba voters to support her husband in the February 25 presidential election.Titi who spoke in Yoruba said: “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. This is why I want Yoruba people to support the candidacy of Atiku. Atiku’s victory will make me the first lady of the country.”
