Lagos senator hints at plans to quit assembly

09 June 2014, 20:13

Lagos - The former Lagos State First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, said she was not entirely interested in extending her term at the National Assembly.

She said she might not offer her services again except if her All Progressive Congress (APC) attained a majority in the next general elections.

“Activities in the senate are very depressing. A lot of things that were supposed to be in the front burner were not put into consideration. The senate manipulates the interest of Nigerians. I don't think the senate is a place I will want to go back to except the APC takes over the mantle of leadership,” Tinubu said.

She accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senators of frustrating genuine bills their counterparts from APC sponsored in the house.

Tinubu revealed how her PDP “cabal” at the senate scuttled her bill on social security.

She made the allegations in Lagos while addressing journalists on her achievement since she was voted in as a Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial district.

Tinubu, in her speech titled, “Making A Mark: Three Years Of People-Focused Representation”, gave an impressive accounts of her stewardship in the senate since her election three years ago.

She also gave an overview of her activities in the Senate, highlighting the benefits that had accrued to her constituency and Lagos State in general as well as her developmental initiatives at constituency level.
