Oluremi Tinubu is the former first Lady and currently a Senator of Lagos State. She is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC)

Oluremi Tinubu became the First Lady of Lagos State when her husband, Bola Tinubu, was elected as governor. As first lady, she established the New Era Foundation, dedicated to establishing centres for “all round development of young ones and promote public awareness on environmental health and community service.”

When Tinubu was elected, it was challenged at the Legislative House Election Petition Tribunal -which would later convene and uphold the election in 2012.

Tinubu was one of over 100 senators elected in the 8th assembly in 2015. However, only six of these were women. The others were Stella Oduah and Uche Ekwunife, who both represent Anambra, Fatimat Raji Rasaki, Rose Okoji Oko and Binta Garba.
