Fatima Jabbe could become Sierra Leone’s First Lady

In just one week Fatima Jabbe will find out if she’s to become the First Lady of Sierra Leone.

The CEO of Fabecs Promotion, who married opposition politician Julius Maada Bio and moved to Freetown, is at the centre of a presidential election campaign in which her husband is one of the top contenders.

Famous Sierra Leonean radio presenter, Yulisa Ahmadu told What’s On-Gambia: “Her husband’s chances of winning is increasing. She might be lucky to be the First Lady.

“But Fatima is currently having in fights and malice with the party's female leaders because she wants to lead the women’s wing at the same time. In a nutshell, she just likes attention and to her, she's building her brand.”

Fatima’s husband, who once served as a military head of state in 1996 after ousting Captain Valentine Strasser, is the presidential candidate for the Sierra Leone People's Party (SPP).

In an earlier interview with What’s On-Gambia, the young mother described her husband as a loving and caring man.

“He loves my kids and protects us always. I love him very much too.”

When asked about her chances of becoming the First Lady of Sierra Leone, she said: “I married my husband because I love him. But along the line, I happen to become a First Lady, to God be the glory. I will serve my duty to the best of my ability.”

Sierra Leoneans will vote to elect a new president on the 7th March. Incumbent Ernest Bai Koroma, of the All People's Congress (APC), is standing down, having served the constitutional limit of two five-year terms.
