As a national leader of All Progressives Congress, Mr Bola Tinubu, begins to reconcile disgruntled sides in the ruling party, his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has lamented that her husband was “sidelined” after the party won the 2015 Polls.
President Muhammadu Buhari had mandated Tinubu to reconcile aggrieved party members ahead of 2019 general elections, an assignment the former governor of Lagos State has since begun.
But his wife, who is representing Lagos Central Senatorial District at the Senate, on Monday featured on Your View, a breakfast show of Television Continental, where she alleged that Tinubu was sidelined despite his efforts towards ensuring that APC won the polls.
Mrs Tinubu, who disclosed that she was forced to discourage her husband from his continued loyalty to the Presidency and 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 front of God, I don’t want to, 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.’”
Wife of Mr Buhari, Aisha, 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 that the Buhari-led administration was now under massive criticisms, the President remained “the candidate to beat” in the forthcoming poll.
