Popular Owerri based blogger and Political analyst, Maazi Obinna Akuwudike, have reacted to the comment by Senator Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of presidential hopeful, and former governor of Lagos State, Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu, when the issue of insecurity was raised on the floor of the Senate.
Senator Remi Tinubu, who represents Lagos central senatorial district, attacked Senator Smart Adeyemi of Kogi West, who is also of the All Progressives Congress APC, for daring to confront Buhari over national insecurity issues.
Remi Tinubu was heard asking Adeyemi if he was of the PDP, rather than address the issue at hand.
Reacting, Akuwudike, while speaking to Verbatim News, expressed his disappointment with Tinubu’s wife, for playing petty party politics, in a situation of such magnitude.
“I found it unbelievable,” Akuwudike stated. “That any human being, would make such comments, let alone the woman who wants to become the first lady of this country. How can Oluremi become the mother of a nation like Nigeria, when she is playing petty party politics, with issue such as this?
‘How can Mrs. Tinubu be talking about who is PDP or APC, when Nigerians are being killed in reckless abandon?
“I think it was a way God used to expose to Nigerians, that Tinubu would not make a good president for Nigeria. She may not even have done what she did consciously, but God works in mysterious ways, and exposed what Nigerians will expect, if Tinubu is made president.
“We’ll find ourselves in a Nigeria under Tinubu, where you will be asked if you are APC or PDP, before the presidency will act over matter of National Security. That’s exactly what it means by what she did.
“We are suffering ethnic marginalisation across the country, whereby killer Fulani herdsmen, are not branded terrorists, while placard carrying IPOB members are proscribed. With such comments, it has revealed that we will suffer not only ethnic marginalisation under Tinubu, but also political marginalisation.”
