The wife of the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has said the Muslim/Muslim ticket of the party will set a new tone in the country, even for future presidential candidature.
Oluremi made this statement on Wednesday during the APC South-West women’s presidential rally held at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos.
She said, “As regards Muslim/Muslim ticket, this one will set the tone for the future. Sometime in the future, we will have a Christian/Christian ticket. What God has done is marvelous in our land.
“I bring you warm greetings from the First Lady, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari. She sends love to Lagos and wishes you well and to the governor that is making things work in Lagos State.
“We thank you for coming out in large numbers despite the challenges. My coming here is another homecoming. About 23 years ago, God bless my husband to become the governor and I supported him as the first lady.
“I want to thank the people of Lagos Central for sending me to represent them. I am the first woman to emerge as a senator three times. This is a wonderful opportunity and since 2007 when my husband left office, I kept working for the good of our people.”
The wife of the State Governor, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, also present at the rally, called on women in the state to vote for the APC in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
She stated, “As women, there is a strong need for us to use the 2023 elections to vote for APC across all levels for consolidation and continuity of the remarkable work and achievement of the present administration. It is crystal clear that the continuity of the APC government is the sure way to greater progress.
“The commitment of the Tinubu-Shettima presidency is that all Nigerians, regardless of age, colour, gender, ethnic, religious, and political affiliations, will be supported to achieve their dreams and aspirations. This presidency will do everything humanly possible to increase opportunities for women in politics and decision-making.
“Indeed, Nigerian women can count on the Tinubu/Shettima Presidency. This is a ticket that will ensure gender justice, fairness, and equitable participation of women in governance and the political process. It is a ticket that will close gender gaps and address the many challenges women still confront in public and private.”
