The wife of the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen. Oluremi Tinubu, has said the current turmoil across Nigeria is because the nation is in labour and on its way to birth prosperity.

Tinubu, who spoke at a town hall meeting with the disability community in Abuja, said there will be a turnaround when her husband is elected while building on the legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari.

She urged Nigerians to give the Tinubu/Shettima ticket a chance to lead the way to prosperity. 

Tinubu said: “President Muhammadu Buhari has laid the foundation, trust me, what is happening now is just delivering pains, when a mother wants to deliver, what will happen? Labour, pain. So we are labouring right now to birth a Nigeria that is going to be great, I can’t wait to see that Nigeria.

“I always tell people that they should try the Tinubu/Shettima ticket and if it does not work, it is a democracy, you have the opportunity in four years to vote them out. But I believe that if you try it, you will not regret it.

“God brought the Muslim-Muslim ticket to confound the wise and the naysayers who say we want Christian-Muslim ticket and still you will be complaining, then try this one that you tried one time and that evil of this nation shut it down but this one has come to stay and it will it stay, it will suffer”.

She said the economy has disabilities while assuring the disability community that Tinubu presidency would carry them along in its policy.

The Senator said the economy is in disability and analysis in each sector would show a need to overhaul some aspects.

She said the secret to her husband’s popularity is not the money he gives but his generosity to others.

The Senator said: “Asiwaju’s secret is not about money. Contrary to what people think, he is a very compassionate man and very generous. There is nothing he can’t give. Does Asiwaju really handle money? Not really. I remember after he finished as Governor, we used to have this staff at home. If you need anything he will say go and meet so and so, that is he who is. 

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouq, said if APC is given another chance, it would continue on the achievement to improve the lives of persons with disabilities in the country.
