“My wife, as you have (seen) from the documentary, was one of the youths who were criticising us, the politicians. She said ‘make politics sexy so that youths can participate,” he said according to The Cable.

“I got to the podium and said look at my wife, if politics is not sexy, what is she doing here? Remi, thank you for tolerating my trouble,” he added.

The colloquium was themed “Agriculture: Action, work, revolution” and had President Muhammadu Buhari as the main speaker.

The conference was also attended by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo and Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode.

Mrs Remi Tinubu is the Senator representing the Lagos Central Senatorial District.
