Sen. Remi Tinubu Causes Stir At The Senate, Shows Disrespect

The Nigerian upper chamber witness a little drama yesterday, November 18, 2015, when Senator Remi Tinubu, the wife of former Lagos state governor and APC leader, Bola Tinubu, decided to seat on a chair meant for Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu,.

According to The Cable, Mrs Tinubu took Ekweremadu’s position when she wanted to second a motion on the approval of the Lagos State development policy operation loan.

She was reportedly scolded by Senator-Members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Ekweremadu’s party, for the action leading her to return to her seat.

Mrs Tinubu was however said to have returned to the Deputy Senate President’s seat a second time to have a discussion with Senate Leader, Aliyu Ndume despite the initial drama.

Ekweremadu was reportedly not present at the plenary when the incident happened.
