Remi Tinubu Under Heavy Fire As Nigerians Rubbish Ambition To Be First Lady

 Nigerians have condemned the lawmaker representing Lagos Central in the Senate, Oluremi Tinubu, for calling a woman ‘thug’ at the South-west zonal public hearing of the constitution review on Wednesday.

247NNU had reported that the former Lagos First Lady was caught on camera clashing with some people at the event which was held at Marriott Hotel in Lagos.

The review had residents queuing to register before they were allowed entry into the hall. However, some of those in the queue were later informed that registration had closed for the day.

But a few minutes later, some lawmakers from Oyo state passed the queue and were about to be ushered in, leading to a commotion at the front entrance.

As the shouts continued near the front door, with those in the queue insisting that they had been unfairly treated, the Oyo lawmakers were about to be hurriedly ushered through the backdoor, but the people followed them, preventing them from being allowed into the hall.

However, after some consultation with the personnel at the door, Senator Tinubu showed up at the backdoor to allow the lawmakers in.

As she was about to do this, a woman, who complained about being denied entry, decried the partial treatment and voiced out her frustration.

Seeing this, the senator,  who is an ordained pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), beckoned on her and two others, only to call the woman a “thug” for speaking too loud.

“We don’t want thugs here,” Tinubu said.

Angry with the former First Lady’s comments, those in the queue insisted that such a derogatory word shouldn’t have come from the senator.

The senator was asked to apologise but she refused.

This has caused dissension on social media with Nigerians vowing her husband's ambition to be president will never come to pass with her by his side.
