FORMER Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, has described Senator Oluremi Tinubu as a woman who came equipped for the challenges of the First Lady office.
Serenading Mrs Tinubu on her 63rd birthday anniversary, Omo-Agege said her stature, political acumen and managerial capacity could only be compared to those of a one-time American First Lady, Mrs. Hilary Clinton, who was a pillar of support for her husband, President Bill Clinton.
“From her sterling political consciousness and active role while President Tinubu was Lagos governor to becoming a federal lawmaker in Nigeria’s apex legislative chamber, the Senate, our First Lady garnered invaluable experience that Nigeria sorely needs as the President squares up to the task of returning the country to the path of sustainable growth,” Omo-Agege avered.
In a statement issued by Mr. Sunny Areh, his Media Adviser, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State in the last general elections, stated that like other great First Ladies in other climes, Mrs. Tinubu’s calm mien, experience and vision will come in handy in building a great Nigeria.
“Our country is lucky to have Senator Oluremi Tinubu as First Lady at this crucial time of our political and economic trajectory.
“She represents strength, visionary leadership, greatness and fight for democracy,” attributes, he stated, are needed in the onerous task of rebuilding the country.
Omo-Agege, therefore, wished Mrs Tinubu excellent health and more wisdom from God in the days ahead.
