A national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has described politics as sexy, saying that if politics was not sexy, his wife, Oluremi would not be in it.
Tinubu made the comment on Tuesday, March 29, 2016, during the 8th Bola Tinubu colloquium, which held in Abuja in commemoration of his 64th birthday.
Tinubu revealed that his wife was behind the drive to make politics sexy for the youths to participate in it.
“My wife, as you have (seen) from the documentary, was one of the youths, who were criticising us, the politicians. She said ‘make politics sexy so that youths can participate’.
“I got to the podium and said look at my wife, if politics is not sexy, what is she doing here? Remi, thank you for tolerating my trouble,” he said.
On the economic crisis currently confronting Nigeria, Tinubu said that a “renaissance must come within” as the country has lands, minds and capacity to overcome challenges.
“Our renaissance must come within. We have the lands, we have the minds, we have the capacity, we have the intellect, we have the ability,” he said.
