Oluremi, wife of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), says the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party will set a new tone in Nigeria’s political landscape.

Oluremi spoke on Wednesday during the APC south-west women’s presidential rally at Mobolaji Johnson Arena in Lagos.

She said the country, in no distant time, would also witness a Christian-Christian ticket.

Tinubu thanked the people of Lagos central for electing her to represent them at the national assembly.

“I bring you warm greetings from the first lady, Her Excellency, Aisha Buhari. She sends love to Lagos and wishes you well, and to the governor that is making things work in Lagos state,” she said.

“We thank you for coming out in large numbers despite the challenges. My coming here is another homecoming. About 23 years ago, God blessed my husband to become the governor, I supported him as the first lady.

“God rewards good work. What is happening to us is God that is doing this. He pleases people without people paying attention but heaven pays attention.

“As regards Muslim-Muslim ticket, this one will set the tone for the future. Sometime in the future, we will have a Christian-Christian ticket. What God has done is marvelous in our land.”

Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu, wife of the Lagos state governor, said Nigeria needs somebody with political sagacity like Tinubu to manage its affairs.

Sanwo-Olu said President Muhammadu Buhari has laid the right foundation for progressive governance.

She said he has been responsive, progressive, and totally committed to the needs of the people, especially women and children.

She said that as women, there is a need to use the 2023 elections to vote APC across all levels, for consolidation and continuity of “the remarkable work and achievement of the present administration”.

“We are delighted to receive you all as we flag off the Tinubu/Shettima women’s presidential campaign in the south-west,” she said.

“At this point in time in our democratic experience and history, Nigeria needs the financial expertise, intellectual acumen, progressive capacity, and political sagacity of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to manage the affairs of our great country.

“Asiwaju has a track record of outstanding performance. He has the astonishing ability to identify talents and galvanise them to catapult our nation to the deserved height and rightful position in the comity of nations. He has done it in Lagos and he will do it in Nigeria.

“The commitment of the Tinubu-Shettima presidency is that all Nigerians, regardless of age, colour, gender, ethnic, religious, and political affiliations, will be supported to achieve their dreams and aspirations.

“They are people-friendly, reliable, and trustworthy. The Tinubu-Shettima presidency will do everything humanly possible to increase opportunities for women in politics and decision-making.”

Sanwo-Olu said that women should count on the Tinubu/Shettima presidency, as the ticket would ensure gender justice, fairness, and equitable participation of women in governance and the political process.
