Oluremi, the wife of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Nigerians to ‘drive out’ her husband if he’s elected president of Nigeria and fails to perform.
Mrs Tinubu, currently representing Lagos Central senatorial district at the National Assembly, also asked Nigerians to not be focused on the religious leaning of whoever takes over the presidential seat.
“Let’s leave religion aside; I am a Christian. Have you ever thought that one day a Christian-Christian candidate would emerge? What would be the reference point?
“We have tried the Muslim-Christian ticket, let us try this one too and after four years if they don’t do well, you can drive them out,” she said on Tuesday in Owerri, Imo.
Mr Tinubu, a former Lagos governor, is among eighteen candidates contesting the February 25 presidential election.
He would be contesting the seat with other top candidates including Messrs Atiku Abubakar (PDP), Peter Obi (LP), and Rabi’u Kwankwaso (NNPP).
Speaking at the South-East women’s rally for Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign in Imo, Mrs Tinubu said next month’s election should be about capacity to perform with the fear of God, not religion.
“When you have a person who fears God, not a person who is a Christian or Catholic or Muslim, but a God-fearing person. When a man who fears God is in power, he will treat you right,” she added.
Assuring that women would form a large percentage of her husband’s administration, the wife of the APC presidential candidate urged women to continue to rally their support for Mr Tinubu’s candidacy.
