Chief Mrs. Remi Adiukwu.
Incoming Deputy Governor of Lagos State.
Chief Mrs. Remi Adiukwu is no stranger to a wield range of individuals in and out of politics as her name is one that rings louder than an Anglican Church early morning bell and opens doors at different levels, both in the Lagos political circle and in Nigeria, having come a long in politics.

As Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs under the National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as governor, she was one of those who helped galvanize that administration, especially at the grassroot level, even at the time when her then boss, Bola Tinubu took the bulls by their horns to create additional Local Council Developmental Areas which led to the war between him, the Lagos State government and former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Chief Remi Adiukwu’s desire for better Lagos led to her wanting to be governor of Lagos State, desiring very openly to take over from Tinubu, but was denied that opportunity due to party rules which didn’t favour her candidacy the.

The great news therefore is that the APC in Lagos is considering using her as the stabilizing factor in the government that will come after the current one, and whoever emerges the governorship candidate will have the amiable Chief Mrs. Remi Adiukwu as his running mate for Deputy Governor.
