Lagos Central Senator, Remi Tinubu has declared that she doesn’t have to rush home and report anyone to her husband but she rather fights for herself.
Mrs. Tinubu who is the wife of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu said her husband has a habit of telling her she’s wrong even when she believes she’s right.
Therefore, rather than go report anyone to her husband, the Senator declared that she would rather fight and defend herself.
She made the submission on Friday when she featured on a TVC breakfast show, ‘Your View.’
In her words, “That you have a position doesn’t mean you have to lose yourself to that position, because the position will go and then, do you go back and find yourself? You have to be yourself in every situation.
“Most of the time when people see me talk strongly, yes, I am Asiwaju’s wife but Asiwaju is somebody that I don’t go home to report anyone to because he would tell me, ‘you are wrong’. I don’t know why but when you have a husband who tells you, ‘you are wrong’ when you are right, in your own view, would you go back to such a person? So, I do my own fight when I have to, especially in what I believe in.”
Earlier, Naija News also reported that Mrs. Tinubu denied calling anyone a thug during the public hearing on constitutional review in Lagos on Wednesday.
She said she only asked the woman in question, Arinola Oloko if she was a thug and that she never called her a thug.
“I only asked a question and I expected her to say, ‘Ma’am, I am not a thug,” Tinubu said.
Naija News had earlier reported that the lawmaker in a viral video was involved in a shouting match with some Nigerians who attended the event at the Marriot Hotel in Lagos.
Tinubu led the Senate Committee on Review of the 1999 Constitution in the South-West.
