Oluremi Tinubu, senator representing Lagos central, says a Tinubu-Shettima presidency will be the “best option” for Nigerian women.
The senator’s husband, Bola Tinubu, is the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) while Kashim Shettima, former Borno governor, is his running mate.
Speaking on Monday at the inauguration of the Tinubu-Shettima women presidential campaign, the senator described both men as “gender sensitive”.
“The track record of both men (Tinubu and Shettima) are gender sensitive,” she said.
She urged more than 1,250 women present at the inauguration to mobilise support for the APC candidates.
President Muhammadu Buhari was represented at the event by Ibrahim Gambari, his chief of staff.
Tinubu and Shettima were also in attendance.
Others who attended the event include Abdullahi Adamu, national chairman of the APC; Aisha Buhari, wife of the president; Nana Shettima, wife of the vice-presidential candidate; Simon Lalong, Plateau governor, and Hope Uzodinma, Imo governor.
Also present were Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano state; Betta Edu, women leader of the APC; Pauline Tallen, minister of women affairs, and other leaders of the party
