It’s not a hidden fact that Senator Oluremi Tinubu has jettisoned the idea of returning to the Senate
after expiration of her present tenure in 2019. Al least, the 57 year old Senator had informed many of the leaders in her Senatorial district that she is not seeking a re-election for third term in the red chamber.
However, the Lagos Central Senator said on Monday, 19th February, while featuring on TVC’ Your View programme, that, despite her desire not to run for a third term, prominent leaders and groups from her constituency have encouraged her to seek re-election, and she might heed to a third term in the Senate.
She said: ”I am concerned about how we represent ourselves as a woman. We have more women but lower representatives of women. I would have said, I am not running for a third term. But if I do this on National TV and go back to my district to speak about it, it will be an insult to them, If a seed abides alone it will die, I actually wanted to lay low but I am encouraged to continue to run.”
It would be recalled that, Senator Oluremi Tinubu was unwilling to return to the Senate in 2015 , but she was prevailed upon by her constituents and some notable leaders in her Senatorial District before she could have a change of heart.
