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.
Despite repeated calls for an apology, the pleas seemingly fell on deaf ears as she stuck to her gun.
“I will not apologise for what I said. I saw it and I said it.”
It is in light of this that WUZUPNIGERIA highlighted 12 things the average Nigerians don’t know about the politician.
1 Oluremi Tinubu was born on 21 September 1960.
2 The senator is the youngest of 12 children in her family.
3 She hails from Ogun State in Nigeria.
4 Oluremi was a former first lady of Lagos State and currently a senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District.
5 The politician is a pastor with the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
6 Her education started at Our Lady of Apostles Secondary School in Ijebu-Ode where she obtained her WASSCE in 1979.
7 She attained a PGD from the Redeemed Christian Bible College in 2010.
8 Tinubu received a B.S. in Education from the University of Ife, and a National Certificate of Education in Botany and Zoology from the Adeyemi College of Education.
9 She became the first lady of Lagos State when her husband, Bola Tinubu, was elected as governor in 1999.
10 The politician introduced the Lagos Spelling Bee Competition in 2000.
11 Oluremi established the New Era Foundation, dedicated to establishing centres for development of young ones.
12 The senator proposed a bill to reform the Nigerian Postal Service earlier this year.
