At 64, I’m not afraid of death – Remi Tinubu

 Mrs Oluremi Tinubu, the wife of President Bola Tinubu, has
responded to a recent threat by an unidentified cleric in Bauchi purportedly
wishing her dead.


A viral video surfaced a few weeks ago in which the Islamic
cleric declared that Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, deserved to die for
her Christian faith, while describing the Muslim/Muslim ticket that brought
President Bola Tinubu to power as a scam.


However, undeterred by the threat, the First Lady said that,
at 64 years of age, she shouldn’t fear death.


She made these remarks during a courtesy visit to the Emir
of Bauchi, Alhaji Rilwan Adamu, before commissioning some projects in the State
on Tuesday.


She said: “I want to thank His Excellency (Bauchi Governor);
he keeps assuring me that I am safe in Bauchi, but I want to say that I am too
old to be afraid. If God has granted me over 60 years on earth, I shouldn’t
fear death.


“I thank God that you encouraged me to come. Nigeria belongs
to all of us, and this is the time for us to unite more than ever before.”


In response, Bauchi Governor, Bala Mohammed, who accompanied
the First Lady to the Emir’s Palace, condemned the recent death threats made
against her, labeling it a “national embarrassment.”


Addressing the incident, Mohammed expressed his dismay, describing
the threat as unacceptable.


He assured Mrs. Tinubu of her safety in the state and
pledged to take appropriate action against the cleric responsible for the


Remi Tinubu, who also serves as the National Chairperson of
the Renewed Hope Initiative, was in the state to inaugurate some ICT and
educational facilities in the capital.
