Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has decried that her husband was “trashed” after the party won the 2015 elections.
Remi, who is representing Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Senate, made this known as she featured on Your View, a breakfast show of Television Continental, where she declared that her husband, Tinubu, was side-lined despite his efforts towards ensuring that APC won the polls in 2015.
She revealed that she, at some point, was forced to discourage her husband from his continued loyalty to the Presidency and the APC but stated that the party leader was always harping on the development of the country above his personal interest.
“He was campaigning, I did too. We were running three campaigns in my house. And for him to be trashed like that? But I saw somebody who has love for this country. I hate to speak because when I stand in the front of God, I don’t want, because of this man, go to hell,” she stated.
“Occasionally, I would chip in and I would say, ‘You’re still helping out? Why are you helping out?’ He would say, ‘This country matters to me more.’”
Remi however insisted that despite the misgivings against the President Muhammadu Buhari, the President remained “the candidate to beat” in the forthcoming poll.
“Change takes only one person to champion. And you need leadership. For me, Buhari is still the candidate to beat,” she declared.
“Leadership is inspirational. Management is technical. If you have all the degrees and you’re smart and savvy, it is not about leadership. How many people are you inspiring?
“And Buhari, how many years has he been there? I am not campaigning for him. I am not; because I have looked at the dynamics; the poor still trust him. I will tell you: when it comes to integrity, Buhari has it. I don’t know about now.”
