Meet Chioma Uzodinma, Nigeria’s ‘youngest first lady’

Much has been said and written about Hope Uzodinma, the Imo state governor-elect, ever since his victory at the supreme court on January 14.
The apex court had sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as governor. It also affirmed Uzodinma of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to take over Ihedioha’s seat.
This was despite the fact that Uzodinma had placed fourth at the March 9 governorship elections in the state.
In the wake of the heated debate over the apex court’s ruling and the swearing-in of Uzodinma, Chioma, his wife, became the state’s first lady.

At 30, she is considered the “youngest of her kind in the history of the country”.
