Female NASS Members Pay Visit to First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu 



President’s wife advises lawmakers to remain faithful to constituents 
Female Senators and Members of the House of Representatives on Wednesday paid a courtesy visit to the First Lady, Senator Oluremi Tinubu.
Senator Tinubu, who served for 12 years in the Senate for three consecutive terms, representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, expressed her delight at the visit and advised the female National Assembly Members to remain faithful to their constituents.
“You are the women here at the National Assembly for the masses and you should not take this for granted. As a former lawmaker, I advise you to please work together, irrespective of party affiliation because the success of the nation depends on this,” she advised.
The First Lady also advised the women to be teachable, learn new things, and try those new things as this would give them an advantage in the discharge of their responsibilities as Lawmakers and women in particular.
“When men are in the position of power, they do not see gender, so you as women should not fight a man who does not see gender when fighting for power,” she said.
Senator Tinubu, who urged the women not to lose their femininity in the execution of their duties, prayed for victory for the female lawmakers who have pending court cases.
In her remarks at the event, the representatives of the Female National Assembly members, Hon Kafilat Ogbara representing Kosofe Federal Constituency, Lagos State, said the visit was to congratulate the First Lady on the success of the 2023 general elections that brought into office, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu (GCFR) and Vice President Kasshim Shettima (GCON).
The Female National Assembly members pledged their support and cooperation to the course of nation-building and to also lend a hand of fellowship whenever the need arises for the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Those who visited the First Lady were three Senators and 15 members of the House of Representatives.
