The wife of the presidential flag bearer of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Oluremi Tinubu has faulted critics of her husband, accusing him of being over-ambitious; rather she said service is the driving force propelling the ruling party standard bearer. The Senator representing Lagos Central in the upper chamber of the National Assembly said her husband is qualified to aspire for the nation’s highest office after serving others and seeing their success for 20 years.

Tinubu who spoke on Friday at a pre-election strategic meeting with zonal, state and local government women leaders organised by the National Women Leader, Dr. Beta Edu in Abuja said “ticket of Tinubu-Shetimma is the best option for Nigerian women.” “My husband had not contested an election since 2003. This year, it will be 20 years, so he did not just wake up and say it is my turn. If you served other people for 20 years and make sure they excel. I don’t believe you can’t ask for your place.

“The Bible said, when you build, you should inhabit, when you sow, you should be the first part taker. It depends on how long you have invested.” On the ongoing cash crunch and its effect on her husband’s fortune, the former Lagos State First Lady said despite the cash crunch, the large crowd of party supporters at Tinubu-Shetimma campaign rallies, have shown that God and not money has been the driving force of their electioneering campaign.

“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? Appreciating the women for turning out in large numbers, the federal lawmaker said, “The strategic meeting of today is very important at this crucial time. I appreciate you all who have come from the 36 states and FCT and I am charging you, as women leaders, to go back to their states, wards and units to educate the women folks to vote for Tinubu/Shettima.
