• CBN governor’s wife suffers the scourge of the ruling class

Until recently, Margaret, wife of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor, Godwin Emefiele, lived a simple life. She looked to simplicity, embraced purity and held on to the things which are reliable. The unassuming woman, unlike most rich, privileged high society wives, painstakingly tamed and lessened her mortal fascination with self.

She succeeded where most of her peer failed; Margaret diminished desire and lust for acclaim – despite her exalted status as the CBN governor’s wife.

But no sooner than she emerged in public glare at her mother-in-law’s funeral than her life of simplicity and modesty fade under the onslaught of political jobbers, power mongers and other high society elements infesting the corridors of power.

Since she was publicly identified as the CBN governor’s wife at the funeral of her husband’s mother, life had never remained the same for the erstwhile reticent woman. Margaret has been fighting arduous battle daily to repel the manouverings of favour seekers desperately seeking her help to reach and influence her husband to their advantage. It is indeed a grueling dilemma for the woman whose self-effacement excited commendation and applause from pundits at home and abroad.

It would be recalled that Margaret lost her anonymity and right to privacy immediately everyone set eyes on her at the funeral of her husband’s mother, late Madam Alice Emefiele, in Agbor, Delta State. She and her husband had hosted friends in Agbor, for the funeral of the 94-year old who passed away recently. The two-day burial ceremony, which took place in Ika South Local Government Area, saw top dignitaries pay their last respect to the deceased.

The modest funeral rites was attended by former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Engr. Babachir Lawal, Governors of Delta, Edo, Anambra, Cross River, AkwaIbom, Oyo, Osun, Benue, Plateau; Ministers of Information, Budget and National Planning, Petroleum and others; members of the National Assembly, the military, as well as top bank executives, the clergy, businessmen Aliko Dangote, Femi Otedola, Nduka Obaigbena and Abdul Samad Rabiu and many others all attended the modest ceremony.

As the pressure intensifies against her feeble will, let’s hope she wouldn’t yield to the scourge of political jobbers and favour seekers, seeking to corrupt her, in their grand design to exploit her husband’s power and status to advantage.
