At a pre-election strategic meeting of APC zonal, state, and local government women leaders held in Abuja on Friday, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu spoke out in support of her husband’s candidacy for the presidency.
Clarifying that he hasn’t run for any election since 2003, she stated that he didn’t wake up and say “it is my turn”.
She said, Tinubu is not seeking the presidency out of overambition, but rather to reap the benefits of his hard work and dedication to public service over the years.
She further emphasized that her husband is highly qualified and capable of effectively governing the country, adding that he is the most widely accepted candidate for the position.
She stated: “My husband, (Tinubu), had not contested election since 2003. This year, it will be 20 years; so he did not just wake up and say it is my turn. You can serve other people for 20 years and make sure they excel.
“When you build, you should inhabit, when you sow, you should reap, and be the first partner. It depends on how long you have invested.
“They told us, we are buying people to come to rallies. God now said, what I am going to do, I can shut the heavens, so there is no money and you will see my glory. Are we not seeing God’s glory. Be patient; go and vote. When you vote, shine your eyes until they count your vote.
the APC National Woman Leader, Dr. Betta Edu, expressed confidence that Tinubu would implement the 35 percent Beijing affirmative action if elected into power.
She further urged women coordinators to mobilize the 44.4 million women voters to cast their votes for Tinubu and all APC candidates contesting for various positions.
