Remi Tinubu

Born on September 21, 1960, the wife of the President grew up in Ogun State in nigeria’s South-West region, the youngest of 12 children.

Remi was first a teacher before venturing into politics. She obtained her National Certificate in Education (NCE) at the Adeyemi College of Education in Ondo State and proceeded to the University of Ife in Osun State (now Obafemi Awolowo University), where she bagged a Bachelor of Science degree in Education (Biology).

Since tying the knot with Tinubu in 1987, she has been ordained as a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG). The author of ‘The Journey of Grace – My Faith Walk’ also served as the First Lady of Lagos State between 1999 and 2007.
