said this Wednesday in Abuja at the second edition of the APC Practitioners Forum and Asiwaju Manifesto Dissection Symposium.
He promised that Tinubu would prioritize the empowerment of women and youth in the country.
“Politically, we will work with the National Assembly to promote greater representation of women in Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs).
“Our goal is to have at least 35 percent female representation at all levels of government, we will also work to progressively improve the number of female legislators at the state and national levels.
“I am a woman and am a beneficiary of Asiwaju’s commitment to empowering women.
“Although I have always been passionate about charity work and have invested heavily in women and youth development as a former First Lady of Lagos State.
“It was with the support of my dear husband that I was also able to take on political leadership roles,” she said.
She said there was a need to institutionalize women’s inclusion and representation in politics and government, adding that this was Tinubu’s promise to Nigerian women.
Oluremi said that for Nigeria to reach its full potential, each segment of the population must have a fair chance to make their best contributions to the welfare and betterment of the country.
He promised that a Tinubu-led government would provide equal and inclusive opportunities and platforms to ensure Nigerian women excel in all areas such as economic, social and political sectors.
“This will be achieved by creating an enabling and empowering environment to achieve these goals and objectives.
“Financially, we will encourage our financial institutions to provide more and more loans and incentive programs to women-owned businesses.
“Our women are not lazy, we see them working hard to build houses and raise children with their meager income. Asiwaju recognizes that all our women need is the right and timely support to thrive.” she said.
Oluremi said that as a former two-term governor of Lagos State, Tinubu championed many initiatives to support women that lifted several families out of dire economic challenges.
“That is why, to this day, the women of Lagos have continued to sing her praises in recognition of her unwavering devotion and dedication to their well-being and progress.
“Socially we will fight and defend the dignity of our women. As we did in Lagos State through the establishment of the Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA),
“We will encourage all states to institute it and combine it with the efforts of the Police Gender Units.
“We will create a safe environment through sponsored legislation to support and protect victims of domestic violence and abuse,” she said.
She added that a Tinubu-led presidency would push for greater gender parity in education to ensure girls had a fair chance to access basic and post-basic education.
She said the administration would promote support programs nationwide to ensure the girl stayed in school and was not exploited by circumstance.
“Our girls are very smart and intelligent, in appreciation and recognition of their intelligence the girl will be encouraged to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
“This will be achieved through the use of education support scholarships, structured tutorials and internships, incentivized business and vocational training programs.
“We will build on the Social Intervention Programs of the current administration with greater emphasis on empowering women and youth to lead more families to collective wealth and prosperity.
“This is a man who has done it before and transformed Lagos State, given the chance he will definitely bring progress and prosperity to the women, youth and vulnerable citizens of Nigeria.” she said.
Senator Margret Okadigbo, wife of the late Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo, said that Tinubu’s wife was a woman of her word who was passionate about everything she did or said.
The event was attended by APC professionals from across the federation, as well as some party leaders.
