Sanwo-Olu’s wife promises Tinubu-Shettima’s ticket ’ll close gender gaps
Wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, yesterday, said the Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket of the party would set a new tone in Nigeria’s political landscape come 2023.
Tinubu’s wife, who stated this during APC’s South-West women presidential rally at Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos, said the country in no distant time would also witness Christian/Christian ticket.
She said: “I bring you warm greetings from the First Lady, Her Excellency Aisha Buhari. She sends love to Lagos and wish 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 blessed my husband to become the governor, 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. Since 2007 when my husband left office, I kept working for the good of our people.
“God rewards good work. He blesses people without people paying attention but Heaven pays attention.
“As regard Muslim/Muslim ticket, this one will set the tone for the future. Sometime in future, we will have a Christian-Christian ticket. What God has done is marvelous in our land.”
SIMILARLY, the First Lady of Lagos State, Dr. Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, said Nigeria needs somebody of political sagacity as Tinubu to manage the affairs of the nation in 2023.
She said: “We are delighted to receive you all as we flag off the Tinubu-Shettima women’s presidential campaign in the South-West.
“As we know, President Muhammadu Buhari has laid the right foundation for progressive governance. He has been responsive, progressive, and totally committed to the needs of the people, especially women and children.”
“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 current administration. It is crystal clear that the continuity of the APC government is the sure way to greater progress.
“At this point in time in our democratic experience and history, Nigeria needs the financial expertise, intellectual acumen, progressive capacity and political sagacity of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to manage the affairs of our great country.”
The APC National Women Leader, Dr. Beta Edu said: “Our mission is simple, we want to deliver 40 million votes for Asiwaju. We want to win at every ward.”
