Remi Tinubu has jumped in the defence of her husband, and asked Nigerians to give him time to fix the country.
Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, has said that her husband, President Bola Tinubu, is not a magician to immediately fix the numerous problems facing Nigeria.
She stated this at the inter-denominational church service held to commemorate the Independence Day celebration at the national Christian centre in Abuja on Sunday.
According to her, the president is, however, working “brick-by-brick” to fix Nigeria.
The first lady said despite inheriting problems, her husband would not heap blame on past administrations.
“All we inherited are things that had happened many years ago; we are not here to put blame on any administration but to fix what has been damaged.
“My husband is not a magician; he is going to work, and I believe and hope that we will have peace in this country; the best is yet to come to us,” she said.
“Good governance can only be impactful if the people follow the example of Jesus Christ, our Lord, who embodied the fruit of the spirit, including love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance and forgiveness.”
She also pleaded with Nigerians to celebrate the unity that defines the nation’s diversity.
