The Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, Oluremi Tinubu, has disclosed that she does not report anyone to her husband, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
While featuring on a TVC breakfast show, ‘Your View’ on Friday, the senator said she decided to fight for herself because her husband tends to fault her anytime she reports to him.
“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,” she said.
Speaking on the viral video that showed her in an altercation with some Nigerians who attended the South West public hearing on constitution review last Wednesday, the lawmaker denied calling anyone a ‘thug.’
According to her, she asked the woman, who has been identified as Arinola Oloko, if she was a ‘thug’ and not that she called her a ‘thug.’
“I only asked a question and I expected her to say, Ma’am, I am not a thug,” the Senator said.
