Oluremi Tinubu, the president-elect’s wife, has assured Nigerians that her family is blessed by God and does not require the nation’s money to thrive.
She announced this at the Sunday interdenominational church service held at the National Christian Centre in Abuja.
The wife of the incoming president-elect stated that everyone shares in the nation’s prosperity and that they would utilise it for good.
She begged Nigerians to pray for them, saying that they would require God’s help in order to live up to their countrymen’s expectations.
Tinubu, who is also the outgoing senator representing Lagos Central at the National Assembly said;
Nigeria’s wealth is the commonwealth of all. It belongs to everyone. God has blessed my family. We don’t need the wealth of Nigeria to survive but to do the right thing. And I promise you on this altar, that with your help, with the help of God, who will set this nation on the right path.
Speaking on, she observed also that she will be one of Nigeria’s oldest first ladies at 63 saying;
Asiwaju is 71 and I will be 63. I bet I will be one of the oldest first ladies Nigeria would have. We need the grace of God and we need everyone to do what Nigerians are expecting.
Today, God has really proved himself as he did on the night of the primaries and put his seal on it. Because, when I saw the votes count to be 1,271, I said God it means you are here.
I was humbled to my rock bottom. And to believe that this is the seventh consecutive democratic transition Nigeria will be experiencing shows that this is a time of perfection for Nigeria.
