Governor Godwin Obaseki's wife, Mrs. Betsy Obaseki, is struggling holding down two jobs.
Mrs. Obaseki is Edo State First Lady after her husband was sworn in on November 12, 2016.
However, she has continued to hold down to her job in Bank of Industry, BOI, where she heads the Strategy and Planning unit of the bank's subsidiary, BOI Investment and Trust Company, BOITC.
Sources said having waited in vain for over three months for her to turn in her request for leave of absence or retirement letter, BOI recently wrote her to either proceeds on leave or retirement.
It was said that the Edo First Lady upon receiving the letter from BOI, the week before last, scampered off like dastards full of terror, and rushed to the bank’s headquarters at Broad Street in Lagos to plead for time to take decision.
"Had it been she is serving in Lagos as the First Lady, the management of the bank would not have bothered because she can still make it to the office regularly but not in this case where she is in Benin. The long and short of the story is that her job in BOITC is suffering," a source in the bank told us.
