Senator Oluremi Tinubu, winner of last Saturday’s Lagos Central Senatorial District election, for a third term, has expressed her desire to become the Deputy Senate President.
Mrs Tinubu made this known yesterday at an interactive session with newsmen in her home.
“We’ve been governor before. When my husband was a governor, I also was the first lady of the state, so, this is my third term as a senator.
“So, who said I cannot aspire to become senate president? I don’t want to be senate president but I have always wanted to become the deputy senate president because I have a lot of responsibility that I want to carry out.”
She added that, as a woman, “I have to always balance my life. This tells us that a woman can be married and always have a job, so, my home constituency has a lot of weight. That is why I am not pushing too much.”
