Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of President-elect Bola Asiwaju Tinubu, has revealed that she would be one of the oldest first ladies in Nigeria’s history. She made this statement during the presidential inauguration interdenominational church service held at the National Christian Centre in Abuja on Sunday.
Oluremi, who currently serves as a senator representing the Lagos Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly, emphasized that her husband is 71 years old. She expressed her gratitude to God for her husband’s victory in the February 25 presidential election.
“We never believed that this could happen, but we thank God for giving us hope,” Oluremi stated. “Asiwaju is 71, and I will be 63. I bet I will be one of the oldest first ladies Nigeria has had. We need the grace of God and everyone to fulfill their expected roles.”
She acknowledged that God has once again proven Himself, just as He did on the night of the primaries, by putting His seal on the election. Oluremi emphasized that this is a time for perfection in Nigeria and called upon everyone to play their part in the nation’s progress.
Oluremi Tinubu’s acknowledgment of her husband’s age and her forthcoming role as one of Nigeria’s oldest first ladies highlights the unique circumstances surrounding the incoming administration.
