Senator Remi Tinubu, wife of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has noted the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket will set a new tone in the country’s political landscape post 2023.
Mrs. Tinubu stated this on Wednesday during the APC Southwest women’s presidential rally held at the Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos.
She said, “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.
“I bring you warm greetings from the First Lady, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari. She sends love to Lagos and wishes you well, as does the governor who 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 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.”
Also speaking at the rally, the wife of the Lagos State Governor, Dr Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, called on women in the state to vote for the APC in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
She said partly, “The commitment of the Tinubu-Shettima presidency is that all Nigerians, regardless of age, colour, gender, ethnicity, religion, or political affiliation, 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.”
In her remarks, the APC National Women Leader, Dr Beta Edu, urged citizens to get their permanent voter cards ready, adding that Tinubu would empower women and provide jobs for youth.
Earlier, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, expressed his confidence that the party will win in the forthcoming presidential election.
Sanwo-Olu made this known during a courtesy visit led by Tinubu’s wife on behalf of the Grand Patron of the Tinubu/Shettima Women Presidential Campaign Team, the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, at the Lagos House in Marina, ahead of the rally.
