APC chieftain, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has serenaded his wife Senator Oluremi with some lovely words as she turned 60, celebrating her strength and efforts in raising their kids all by herself.
Speaking with journalists at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos, Tinubu described his wife as his greatest friend, ally and supporter even at most difficult times.
He went on to reveal how he and his family suffered during the dark days when democracy was assaulted in the country.

“We are a living symbol of love, care, perseverance and commitment. There are so many moments, many twists and turns in our lives. You know, during the dark days when democracy was assaulted in this country, we suffered a lot, the family suffered. As a result of that, she was in America while I was crisscrossing Europe. She was raising our children all by herself. It was a very trying period for every one of us. And then, we endured and got through all the turbulence and today we are still in positions to serve our nation, to serve our people”, he said.
Speaking on her continuous humanitarian activities, Tinubu said, “You can go around the entire Lagos and particularly, the Lagos Central Senatorial District. There are so many that appreciated her commitment, her humanitarian care for both young, the elderly and the needy. I am very happy for her on the attainment of 60. We give thanks to God Almighty that has spared our lives and preserved our love together. This moment when Nigeria is 60, my wife is also 60. It’s a wonderful thing. We mark the day with soberness. Soberness because many people pray to live to see today but they could not.” Read also: “There’s Nothing Sexier Than A Woman With Her Own Money – Linda Ikeji Says On Her 40th Birthday
“The pandemic has taken away some of our friends, those close to us. Today, some people are still lying critically ill in the hospital. Some children have become orphans as a result of what is happening around the country. So it’s a sombre celebration on the occasion of her 60th. For, Nigeria, turning 60 is also a moment for reflection about all that we have been through and where we are. My wish is for her to live longer, for her legacy to be great, be in good health and continue to enjoy the fruit of her labour, enjoy her children and grandchildren, all of them in good health. And me too in good health”, Tinubu added.
