The First Lady of Nigeria, Oluremi Tinubu, has drawn attention with her comments on the current state of the nation during an Interdenominational Church service commemorating Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Anniversary. Remi emphasized that her husband should not be regarded as a magician and stated that he inherited a troubled economy. She asserted that President Bola Tinubu is diligently working to address the country’s challenges.
As Nigeria grapples with soaring fuel prices, a significant devaluation of the naira, and a 25 percent inflation rate due to the removal of fuel subsidies, organized labor has called for an indefinite strike scheduled for Tuesday, October 3.
In response to these concerns, Remi Tinubu, speaking at the church service at the National Christian Centre on Sunday, October 1, emphasized that her husband’s government faced a multitude of inherited challenges. She clarified that her intention was not to lay blame on past administrations for the country’s current predicaments but rather to focus on rectifying the damage.
During the visit of the First Lady to former President Muhammadu Buhari at his Daura residence in Katsina state, she expressed gratitude for his supportive role and prayed for his continued well-being and support, not only for President Tinubu’s administration but for Nigeria as a whole.
In an earlier report, Remi Tinubu emphasized that her family does not rely on Nigeria’s wealth to sustain itself. She stressed that she and her husband rely on the grace of God to govern and called for prayers from the Nigerian people, affirming that the Tinubu government is committed to doing the right thing
