What is next for Remi Tinubu?
In a cheeky victory speech delivered on Wednesday morning, March 01, 2023, Tinubu insinuated that his 62-year-old wife won’t be making a comeback to the senate, as she’ll be occupied with more wifely responsibilities at home.

“To my lovely wife, Oluremi Tinubu, you the senators don’t expect her back, she’s going to be my housewife and the First Lady.”

Expanding on the topic, Remi added a playful quip, addressing an unidentified person in the crowd, that she would be in the “other room.”

The “other room” reference: In 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari, responding to the BBC interview with his wife, Aisha, where she questioned his leadership, said: “I don’t know which party my wife belongs to, but she belongs to my kitchen and my living room and the other room.”

Remi and Bola share a dark sense of humour between themselves, and it sure warms the heart to see.
