Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and winner of Saturday, February 23, Lagos Central senatorial district election, has reportedly said that she would love to become the deputy Senate president some day.
The Sun reports that Oluremi, who won the seat for the third term, reportedly made this known at an interactive session with newsmen in her home.
Legit.ng gathered that she was certain that women can aspire to become anything in life politically.
"One thing is this, a woman can aspire to become anything. Somebody asked if I would like to run for governorship, someday, and I replied yes.
“We’ve been governor before, when my husband was governor, I also was the first lady of the state, so, this is my third term as a senator. So, who said I cannot aspire to become Senate president?
"I don’t want to be Senate president but I have always wanted to become the deputy Senate president because I have a lot of responsibility that I want to carry out," Mrs Tinubu was quoted to have said.
She added that, as a woman, she has to always balance her life. "This tells us that a woman can be married and always have a job, so, my home constituency has a lot of weight. That is why I am not pushing too much," she said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday, February 25, declared Mrs Tinubu winner of February 23 election in Lagos Central senatorial district.
The APC candidate was said to have polled 131,735 to defeat Onitiri David of the PDP who scored 89,107 votes.
The INEC electoral officer in Lagos Island, Sodiq Abubakar, lauded the security agents for their support towards ensuring free, fair and credible election.
