Remi Tinubu, senator representing Lagos central, says her husband will fix the country if elected president in 2023.
Remi Tinubu is the wife of Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The senator said Tinubu’s antecedents in building Lagos would enable him to improve the country’s prospects.
She spoke with AIT on Friday after President Muhammadu Buhari presented the 2023 budget proposal at the joint session of the national assembly.
“Like I said, he’s not a magician to just fix every problem in Nigeria, he(Buhari) inherited some. One of the things that gladden my heart is that he’s done well in laying foundations. We’ve seen that happen in the example of Lagos,” she said.
“When you’re building a huge building, people won’t know what goes into the foundation. I think he’s done well, and we can only wish and hope for a greater Nigeria.
“When you end something there should be other options. We pray that our administration comes on board. And that’s why when you transition and you lay certain foundations, work would have been done because what is eight years to fix a country? A country that when you inherited it wasn’t really there.
“And we can see that a lot has been done. He spoke about the rail, road network, the bridges they’ve done, power, and a lot of things. Nigeria has a very good prospect, and we can only hope for the best.
“Everybody should also play their part. Don’t worry, we(Tinubu’s administration) will fix it, that’s all I can tell you. It’s good to always raise your bar and work towards that. You don’t know other partnerships they have in making. You don’t expect him as who he is to come and start making bogus promises.”
