My Husband Was Discarded After APC Won 2015 Election —Tinubu’s Wife
Used and Dumped!
That is what Oluremi Tinubu, wife of APC national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu is accusing ruling APC of doing with her husband.
This is not the first time APC has had to face similar allegations. Former Vice President and APC chieftain, Atiku Abubakar also accused APC of using and dumping him after the 2015 elections.
Mrs. Tinubu’s remarks comes weeks after President Buhari gave her husband the task of reconciling warring sides in the APC.
Mrs Tinubu while featuring on Your View, a breakfast show of Television Continental on Monday, alleged that her husband 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 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.’”
Recall that wife of President Muhammadu Buhari, Aisha Buhari, had also in the past lamented that those who worked for her husband to get into power had been sidelined in the scheme of things under the current administration.
