Tinubu Names Oluremi as His Housewife, No Return to Senate for His Wife
Following his win of the presidential election, President-elect Bola Tinubu made a declaration that his wife, Oluremi, a former senator, will not be returning to the senate as she will instead play the role of a housewife when he assumes office.
Tinubu added that his wife’s experience in the senate would come in handy when she helps him perform his duties as President.
Oluremi is a Nigerian senator who began her stint in the red chamber in 2011 after her activity as the first lady from 1999 to 2007.
The year 2015 saw her elected as one of six women in the senate.
In 2021, she was presented with the award for the most impactful female senator at the Guardian-organised International Women’s Day Summit.
She proposed a bill to reform the Nigerian Postal Service (NIPOST) that same year, aiming to make it more successful.
In his acceptance speech, Tinubu credited Oluremi and her time in the senate as beneficial to his career.
Furthermore, he stated that while he wouldn’t be returning to the red chamber, she would help in his role as President of the nation.
He humbly thanked her and hailed her efforts to pushing forward the Nigerian Postal Service reforms.
It is clear that Bola Tinubu is looking to bring more attention and recognition to all of the female senators and their achievements.
He has also expressed his appreciation for his wife, and how her help at home will be invaluable in the service of the country.
