Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has made known his wish for his wife, Remi Tinubu, as she celebrates her 60th birthday.

Praising his wife who represents Lagos Central Senatorial District, Tinubu narrated the role she played during the days democracy was assaulted in Nigeria.

Tinubu who spoke to journalists at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos also said that many can attest to his wife’s humanitarian care.

He said: “We are a living symbol of love, care, perseverance, and commitment. There are so many moments, many twists and turns in our lives.

“You know, during the dark days when democracy was assaulted in this country, we suffered a lot, the family suffered. As a result of that, she was in America while I was crisscrossing Europe.

“She was raising our children all by herself. It was a very trying period for every one of us. And then, we endured and got through all the turbulence and today we are still in positions to serve our nation, to serve our people. Tinubu added that

“You can go around the entire Lagos and particularly, the Lagos Central Senatorial District. There are so many that appreciated her commitment, her humanitarian care for both young, the elderly, and the needy.”

Thanking God for her life on the occasion, he said: “I am very happy for her on the attainment of 60. We give thanks to God Almighty that has spared our lives and preserved our love together.

“Today, some people are still lying critically ill in the hospital. Some children have become orphans as a result of what is happening around the country. So it’s a sombre celebration on the occasion of her 60th. For, Nigeria, turning 60 is also a moment for reflection about all that we have been through and where we are”.

On his wish for his wife, Tinubu said: “My wish is for her to live longer, for her legacy to be great, be in good health and continue to enjoy the fruit of her labour, enjoy her children and grandchildren, all of them in good health. And me too in good health.”
