Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has stated that the ruling party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket is setting a precedent.
She suggested that the fate of the APC’s presidential ticket would set the tone for an all-Christian ticket in future elections.
Mrs Tinubu made the remark on Wednesday, December 7, at the APC South-West women’s presidential rally in Lagos.
“AS REGARDS THE MUSLIM-MUSLIM TICKET, THIS ONE WILL SET THE TONE FOR THE FUTURE. SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE, WE WILL HAVE A CHRISTIAN-ONLY TICKET. WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN OUR LAND IS MARVELLOUS.
“WE THANK YOU FOR COMING OUT IN LARGE NUMBERS DESPITE THE CHALLENGES. MY COMING HERE IS ANOTHER HOMECOMING. ABOUT 23 YEARS AGO, GOD BLESSED 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 FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY, AND I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR THE GOOD OF OUR PEOPLE SINCE 2007 WHEN MY HUSBAND LEFT OFFICE.”
