As the national leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, begins to reconcile warring sides in the ruling party, his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, has decried that her husband was “trashed” after the party won the 2015 elections.
President Buhari had mandated Tinubu to reconcile aggrieved party members ahead of the 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, 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 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.”
