Oluremi Tinubu, a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is married to the National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The politician was in the news again on Wednesday for the wrong reason after she attracted backlash and public criticism from the public over her derogatory comment.

WUZUPNIGERIA reported that the wife of the former Lagos State governor was caught berating a Nigerian woman in a viral video.

The Senator who represents Lagos Central came under fire for describing the woman as a thug during the public hearing of the constitutional review on Wednesday.
