Handshake Scoff: Oluremi Tinubu The Senator With Snotty Attitude.

Today after watching the below video of Nigerian senate president Abubakar Bukola Saraki swearing in senator Oluremi Tinubu, I reflect on the importance of pride and professionalism. While I can understand that senator Oluremi Tinubu is upset due to the way the NASS elections played out and that her husband Bola Tinubu cronies wasn't elected, however her behavior is rude and disrespectful. After seeing this display, I am frankly glad that their candidates wasn't elected.                                              
                                                                                   

This type of behavior is not becoming of a woman who is supporting of her husband Bola Tinubu, to be APC national political leader. In life we all have wins and we all have losses. We control our reactions to our wins and our losses. Those that conduct themselves in a manner such as this, is indicative of character traits. While it is natural to be disappointed, this behavior is over the line. It is important to keep in perspective that one opportunity that doesn't work does not mean there isn't something better on the horizon. This type of behavior is very alienating and limits opportunities for future growth. Make sure to manage your emotions, life throws us disappointments, the true strength of a person is in how they respond and preserve through difficult times or situations that didn't work in the way we wanted them too.
