Remi Tinubu, the senator representing Lagos Central District, has stated that her husband, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressive’s Congress, APC, was neglected despite his contributions towards ousting the 16 years of Peoples Democratic Party at the centre.

Although Muhammadu Buhari, the president of Nigeria, has saddled Asiwaju Tinubu with the responsibility of reconciling warring factions of their party together in preparation for yet another General elections in 2019, the wife decried that her husband was “trashed” after the party won the 2015 elections.

She said this on Monday, February 19, 2018, while featuring on Your View, a breakfast show of Television Continental.

Mrs. Tinubu, who disclosed that she was forced to discourage her husband from his continued loyalty to the Presidency and the APC, said the party leader was always harping on the development of the country.

She said, “He was campaigning, I did too. We were running three campaigns in my house. And for him to be trashed like that? But I saw somebody who has love for this country. I hate to speak because when I stand in the front of God, I don’t want, because of this man, go to hell.

“Occasionally, I would chip in and I would say, ‘You’re still helping out? Why are you helping out?’ He would say, ‘This country matters to me more.’”

Aisha Buhari, wife of Muhammadu Buhari, had lamented that those who worked for her husband to get into power had been sidelined in the scheme of things under the current administration.

Mrs. Tinubu however pointed out that despite the fact that the Buhari-led administration was now under massive criticisms, the President remained “the candidate to beat” in the forthcoming poll.

She said, “Change takes only one person to champion. And you need leadership. For me, Buhari is still the candidate to beat. Leadership is inspirational. Management is technical. If you have all the degrees and you’re smart and savvy, it is not about leadership. How many people are you inspiring?

“And Buhari, how many years has he been there? I am not campaigning for him. I am not; because I have looked at the dynamics; the poor still trust him. I will tell you: when it comes to integrity, Buhari has it. I don’t know about now.”
