The Sierra Leonean first lady, Mrs. Sia Koroma has given up her position as head of Africa’s First Ladies to Aisha Buhari, Vanguard reports.

According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Shehu Garba: “Out of respect to Mrs. Buhari, the Sierra-Leonian First Lady, Mrs. Sia Koroma recently surrendered her position of head of Africa’s First Ladies to Mrs. Buhari, inviting her to take up the same seat which Mrs. Jonathan hurriedly handed over a few weeks to the handover of her husband’s government to President Buhari.”

He added that these things are currently under consideration and no decision has been arrived at presently.

The presidency has disclosed that an official portfolio was yet to be assigned to be Aisha, the wife of President Muhmmadu Buhari, hinting of a possible scrapping of the “First Lady’s office” and the likelihood of renaming it “Office of the Wife of the President”.
