The senator representing Lagos Central, Remi Tinubu, has come under heavy criticism after she tackled the senator representing Kogi West, Smart Adeyemi over his outburst on the rising insecurity across the country.
VANTAGE NEWS reported that Adeyemi, while commenting on the rising insecurity in the country, said the country is facing the worst instability since the civil war.
“This is the worst instability we are facing. In fact, this is worse than the civil war,” Adeyemi said.
But Tinubu interrupted him, asking, “Are you in PDP (Peoples Democratic Party)? Are you a wolf in sheep’s clothing?”
However, Adeyemi continued making his contribution, adding, “I’m a party man and I’m supporting APC but it has gotten to a point that as supporters we cannot keep quiet.”
Tinubu’s comment obviously did not go down well with many Nigerians who took to twitter to blast the senator who is the wife of Bola Tinubu, the national leader of the APC.
See reactions below:
In a sane country, the recall process for someone like Remi Tinubu should’ve started, the church she’s a Pastor in, the RCCG should’ve issued a statement admonishing her.
But we live in a Zoo where everyone, churches included are complicit in the animal behavior.

How do RCCG select or choose their Pastors, Deacons and Deaconesses?
Omoooooo, Sometimes, I get so confused as to how Remi Tinubu became a leader in that church.
A careless ranter that talks anyhow.

You think Aisha Buhari is mean person, wait till Remi Tinubu comes in. Remi is as cold as ice and really doesn't care about anyone, anything worse that nasty defines her. All she wants is the title and power that comes with it. Remi you Will never be first lady.

Brothers from the North.. you can see how everyone wants Remi Tinubu’s head on a silver plate for her insensitive and ridiculous comments. Everyone is calling her out for what she is, her tribesmen are not shielding her. That’s how you do it.

I'm sure Remi Tinubu is a mother, if not for anything have empathy for the parents of the Kaduna victims. Imagine what they are going through, not play politics with people's lives FGS…

According to Remi Tinubu: only the opposition parties should criticise the government. All the insecurity in the land is political.

Smart Adeyemi was complaining about insecurity, hardship & poverty that Nigerians are facing, & Remi Tinubu responded with are you in PDP?, wolf in sheep's clothing?.
Some are ready to let this country burn for political correctness, & gbogbo wa la ma je breakfast if it happens.

Remi Tinubu doesn’t care about who gets killed or maimed or assaulted, all she cares about is power, that she expects to be ceded to her husband in 2023.
Therefore any APC senator who dares call out the killings and terrorism is “APC” and “Wolf in sheep’s clothing”.

3. Hindsight: Patience Jonathan would show empathy. She would speak & meet the mothers who have been left without their husbands & children.
So I wonder why the insensitive Remi Tinubu thinks she could be First Lady? The worst of SELFISH Aisha Buhari, is still better than Remi.

With Remi Tinubu's comments it is clear that APC sees nothing wrong with the deplorable situation, they only pretend in public

Remi Tinubu trying to gaslight Sam Adeyemi against his freedom of speech, at the very altar of democracy. Do this people understand democracy? I'm not surprised because APC utterly lack internal democracy so how should anyone expect them to operate in line with democratic tenets.

And Remi Tinubu is an ordained pastor of RCCG. May God help our congregation.

Remi Tinubu has made it clear to Nigerians that
In APC, you lack the right to speak truth to power, no matter the deterioration of the country.
While in PDP, you can freely exercise your freedom of speech.
