Tinubu’s wife targets Deputy Senate Presidency

Senator Oluremi Tinubu, winner of last Saturday’s Lagos Central senatorial district election, for a third term, has expressed her desire to become the Deputy Senate President.

She made this known yesterday at an interactive session with newsmen in her home.

She said: “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.”

She added that, as a woman, “I have to always balance my 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.”
