In a statement signed on Monday by the Senior Special Assistant to the First Lady on Media, Kukoyi Busola, Mrs Tinubu was said to have commended Owowoh for her outstanding performance and resilience throughout her training, describing her as a shining example for Nigerian youths.

The statement quoted the First Lady as saying, “Your determination and resilience are quite remarkable, and you are an inspiration to the youth of this country. As a woman, the first who has made a mark in a male-dominated field, I salute you.

“This is just the beginning. You are now a reference point for all Nigerian youths. If you remain focused and positive, you will reach your goal in life.”

The First Lady was also said to have requested the presence of the wife of the Vice President, the wife of the Speaker, wives of ministers, wives of Service Chiefs and members of the Armed Forces of Nigeria to give a standing ovation to 2nd Lt. Owowoh.
