Remi Tinubu looks down on people, Aisha Yesufu fumes


Aisha Yesufu Remi Tinibu

Socio-political activist, Aisha Yesufu, has flayed the senator representing Lagos Central, Oluremi Tinubu, for putting up what she described as a “disgusting arrogance”.

Recall that Remi who is the wife of All Progressives Congress chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, was caught in a viral video on Wednesday labelling a woman as a “thug” during a public hearing of the constitutional review at the Marriot Hotel in Lagos.

The PUNCH reported that the yet-to-be-identified woman was insulted by Remi for protesting against her exclusion from the venue.

Despite attracting a series of backlashes from many Nigerians who demanded that she tenders an apology to the victim, the senator would hear nothing of such.

“I will not apologise for what I said. I saw it and I said it,” Mrs. Tinubu stated.

Reacting to Remi’s action on Thursday, the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement (Yesufu) noted that the senator’s arrogance is the kind of that “comes from emptiness.”

Yesufu said, “It’s so much disgusting arrogance from a Senator who is an elected official to speak to citizens in that manner and this is not the first time Remi Tinubu is doing this. She looks down on people. I’m sure she is used to people who come to her, rolling on the floor and she thinks everybody will bow before her family. That is why she keeps on carrying this arrogance around.

“It is good that the citizens called her out there and asked her to apologise and this is what needs to happen, we need to bring down this arrogance that these politicians have.

“What has been her contribution since she has been in the Senate? What has she contributed to national issues? What has she contributed to women issues? Nothing. She is just there just because she is there. People who get to power out of tokenism have this kind of arrogance that comes from emptiness. It is absolutely annoying and disgraceful that she behaves that way not knowing that she is there to serve the people.”
