Q- Good morning, ma’am. My name is Tolani Abatti from Encomium Magazine.
A – Oh, Mr Abatti, good morning .
Q- Am I speaking with Alhaja Shade Tinubu – Ojo?
A- I am not an Alhaja in my father’s land (laughter). Most people don’t know that alhaja means a visitor. That is why I don’t always answer when people call me alhaja.
Q- We are aware that you have been to Mecca and Medina more than once.
A- Yes, I have been to Mecca and Medina and I always go for Ummrah too. When I am in Mecca and they call hadjia, I don’t mind because l am a visitor there. But am I also a visitor in in Nigeria, my father’s land?
Q- Can we call you Iyaloja then?
A – That is okay or Iyaloja General. That is my title.
Q- We heard you have just been blessed with a child?
Q- A girl or a boy ?
A – A boy.
Q- Congratulations, ma’am.
A – Thank you, Sir.
Q – We will appreciate then if you will grant us one – on – one interview on this or do you want us to do it on phone ?
A- No please. I can’t do it right now on phone.
Q – When do you suggest we come for the interview then ?
A- Let me look at my schedule. Because right now, I need to do my clinic. I will get back to you.
Q- Is it also true that the naming ceremony will be on Monday?
A- Beni (Yes).
Q – Where ? Is it at Sunday Adigun ?
A – You know my husband is Christian. So we will do the christening early in the morning at our GRA residence and later move to Sunday Adigun in order to accommodate my people. The GRA residence is too small to accommodate my people. I mean the traders.
Q- Is it possible to for us to get the interview before that Monday?
A- I will try.
Q- We will appreciate that. Once more, congratulations on your new baby.
A – Thank you.
