My husband was “trashed” after helping APC to power in 2015 - Remi Tinubu


As the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, begins to reconcile warring sides in the ruling party, his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has complained that her husband was sidelined after helping President Muhammadu Buhari to power in 2015, Punch reports.

President Buhari had mandated Tinubu to reconcile aggrieved party members ahead of the 2019 general elections, an assignment the former governor of Lagos State has since begun.

But his wife, who is representing Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Senate, featured on TVC’s Your View, where she alleged that Tinubu was sidelined despite his efforts towards ensuring that APC won the polls.

Her husband, she said, continues to help because of his love for the country.

She said:
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.
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.’




Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, had lamented that those who worked for her husband to get into power had been sidelined in the scheme of things under the current administration.

Mrs Tinubu however added that Buhari is still the one to beat in the 2019 elections.

She’s not campaigning for him, she said, but believes the poor still trusts him.
Change takes only one person to champion. And you need leadership. For me, Buhari is still the candidate to beat. 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.
