teskyg:
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the Lagos State Governor Babatunde Fashola are at loggerheads following the seizure of one of Obasanjo Farms' utility vehicles by men of the Lagos State Transport Management Authority (LASTMA).

Sources close to Obasanjo Farms in Ota, Ogun state explained that one of the utility vehicles allegedly committed a traffic offence in Lagos last week and it was impounded by LASTMA.

It was gathered that all efforts by the ex-president to ensure the release of the seized vehicle proved abortive.

Sources also added that between last Friday and Sunday, October 21, over 10 red-coloured LAG Bus belonging to Lagos State Government have been forcefully diverted into the Obasanjo Farms compound in Ota.

This action has led to scarcity of the popular bus on Lagos-Abeokuta expressway while thousands of residents of Sango, Ota, Ifo and other settlements along the axis have become stranded for the second day running and this has also doubled the cost of transportation in the area

kennytidistar: some of you who have not being to baba farm before. that place is cleaner than anywhere in Nigerian that place is mini london but nobody can enter there anyhow that place na barrack it you like get warrant soldier go fire your life i'm sure with the seizure of these brt bus fashola will know what his guys has done even though he pretende initially, okada riders are ready to bring lagos down. he close his hears to the poor that pays is food allowance, travelling allowance, medical allowance, and salary. fashola is an ingrate rat.

listen and learn!...there r two people u must avoid fighting, God and the King (Government).

If u know the enormity of powers of a governor in Nigeria, u will know that if only Ogun state governor should take on OBJ, he will literally go on exile from the state. Only a SITTING president, under the present arrangement is more powerful. don't be deceived.

Fashola may ignore him for now among many reasons which includes the running battle with okada people which will surely fizzle out in maximum of a fortnight, so he may not want to take on two "powers" at same time. But remember he can always come to take on OBJ at his own time. Mistake many of u r making here is thinking that Fashola is the underdog, whereas OBJ really is! Fashola will dictate the scale, venue, time, umpire and strategy of the fight if he chooses to tango with OBJ on this matter. There r one-thousand-and-one ways of him slapping OBJ down on ds area-father misdemeanor.

LESSON: NEVER EVER YOU UNDER-RATE OR CROSS A SITTING GOVERNOR WHEN YOU ARE NOT READY TO LOSE!!!

If fashola did not impound d car nigerians we condemn him of being partial but now he did d right thing some are still condeming him. I believe he did what he did to prove a point and send msg to every1 that no one is above the law including obj. He has passed his 1st acid test. lets see if he will pass his 2nd acid test which will be to impound Tinubu's car when he breaks d traffic law. But i advice fashola that now that he has made his point he should allow baba to pay his fine and carry his product. Thatz my judgement.

in your ignoramous world you have defend a sitting governor right?

the federal high court @ ikoyi discredit the law that create lastma and other lagos traffic law as illegal and contrary to the constitution and the law that bind the whole nigerians which fashola also sworn to obey. source later, he state that only the law court has the right to inposed fine on any seized properties, and that lagos state cannot be it own judge. therefore obasanjo knows what he is doing. he can even seized more BRT it is allowed. and if you prove me contrary let fashola go to court and expose his folly.

and again dont even compare OBJ with any sitting gov because it is incomparable, maybe is because you have not go far beyond lagos. you are talking childish.

If going "far beyond" Lagos will make me silly and ignorant as you have shown so far, then God forbid I go "far beyond" Lagos.

Mind u, I was born in heart of Egba-land, and had my education in the midst of the Owus; right net door to OBJs mother's house and I grew up not far from his father's village. U can read my footnote to know my place of nativity. So keep ur going "far beyond" Lagos and deification of OBJ to urself.

On your court verdict on LASTMA, u got it so confused that u sealed it up that your god, OBJ has powers to seize state property...r u ok? Honestly i don't have personal problem with Mr Olusegun Obasanjo, but i have a whole big issue with senile men sowing seeds of lawlessness they may not live long enough to reap in full, also with sheep like you that can't think critically.

FYI, OBJ is simply Mr Olusegun Aremu Okikiolu Matthew Obasanjo, and nothing more!

thank God you admit that such verdict exist, and you mention rule of law. my friend answer this question pls,

is their rule of law when you arrest an offender and refuse to charge him to court within 24 hours? you made mention of critical thinking.
is only a daft that will claim to upheld a rule of law and still practice a dictatorship kind of government, i didnt see OBJ to be a God but the truth must be said lagos state government is 100% wrong to have witheld any property without charging it to court within 24 hour it a general rule which you and i know so what is the stress about this issue? if i were OBJ i will seized more buses because lagos state government too show that they are rogues. period.
Re: Obasanjo, Fashola At Loggerhead Over Seized Vehicle by ZeusI: 8:52am On Oct 24, 2012
2mch: The Ogun State government should order OBJ to release the vehicles. If his vehicles cannot comply with the law of the state then they should be impounded. he is not above the law. And stealing state buses is a crime. Is Baba OBJ willing to go to jail? tongue
I wonder who exactly will make the statement(give OBJ the order) on behalf of govt, that person will be crushed for life. Or do you think Obj is some loud mouthed titan? And mind you, no yoruba man can send OBJ to jail!

After I read this news, I immediately put a call across to OBJ and this is what he had to say.

Acidtalk - Baba Goodday.

Obasanjo - Acidtalk, a da fun e (it will be well with you). By the way what is this call for? Because I know a squirrel can't go jumping in the market place if nothing is chasing it.


Acidtalk - Sir, I called to find out something.

Obasanjo - What is it again this amebo boy?

Acidtalk - Baba, it is the scuffle between you and Governor Fashola over your seized vehicle.

Obasanjo - Ah! Ma da omo buruku yen lowun. Jeki Oju yobo ma ti lo si ino (Don't mind that silly boy, let him allow himself to be pushed to fire by that big eye ball fellow).

Acidtalk - But baba, why did your driver disobey the traffic law of Lagos?

Obasanjo - See Acidtalk, if not because I like you and have great respect for you, I would have hung up this call. Who is Fashola to impound my car in Lagos? Even if I like, I can drive that same car on the tarmac Of Muritala or Nnamdi Azikiwe Airports and dem no born Jonathan sef to do anything.

Acidtalk - But baba, I heard you have seized about 3 Red BRT buses is that true?

Obasanjo - Acidtalk, sha ma wo ni ti e (just be patient and keep watching). I have not started seizing yet, by the time I start with Fashola, all the BRT buses in Lagos will be used as Chicken cages in my farm.

Acidtalk - But Sir,


Obasanjo - Dont but anything. just tell Fashola that "I dey laugh oh!"

Eko Ile:


You must be a Nigerian....

Indeed, a Nigerian through and through.

I reiterate that Fashola is more of a City Manager or Mayor at best, than a national leader whose inadequacies are beginning to become self evident. He will make a good Minister of works in the next dispensation, nothing more.

Lets see how he deals with the problem of the Okada riders which he found a way to mishandle. He should have consulted El Rufai for strategies on how to solve the Okada problem in a Nigerian big city.

Eko ile, you've been reduced to a one liner issuing jobber - the one-liner was not even a stinger. undecided What happed to your customary muscle flexing and vigorous defence of your employers?

Firstly, i don't wanna believe the story is true because i trust Fashola, he wouldn't dare.
The issue of 'no man is above the law' is only applicable on paper term, behold, it happens everywhere around the world. Any serving governor that wanna go head-to-head with ex president is only digging his own grave coz sooner or later he will become ex governor too.
Having said that, if OBJ vehicle commit traffic offence, it should dealt with but not to the extent of going head-to-head with OBJ. If it were a Tinubu truck that was involved,would Fashola had impounded the truck?

Always remember: Power intoxicate

bola4dprec: Even the judge of a court is empower to exercise his discretional power, irrespective of offense(s) committed we need to accord respect for whom dues, humility is still there for Baba Obasanjo now. After all is not a murder case now, Fashola is the most useless man I have ever examined on earth, himself had violated the right of many Nigerian i.e Okada rider and not haven respect for rule of law is lagos state law above Nigeria constitution ? Most especially section 214 which says their will be no any other police which Fashola is violated by the way of setting up of useless lastma, in nutshell ohun abase labowaba

homerac7: so many comments showing the root cause of the unfortunate situation Nigeria found herself in.

first, i don't believe d story. otherwise OBJ would hav simply played into d hands of d Fashola by doing so. Imagine Fashola getting court warrant to go search OBJ farms and all his compunds in Lagos and Ogun (afterall, na ACN dey there and they will gladly join in d fray to finally humble OBJ). That will create so much embarassment for him that he will lose lot of respect and goodwill he's enjoying in international circuit. Whatever happens afterwards from PDP federal power will b a bye-news and at best, damage management for immediate time. But by then, OBJ would hav been fully dragged in mud by "children".

I don't think he would want to risk many possibilities of humilation in hands of those governors. so i don't think he would do this.
If you are a foreigner, i would suggest you keep mum and stare clear of Nigerian politics. Who in the judiciary will give the order, and who will step into 'ota farm' as a law enforcement personnel to search? It happens everywhere, and it is the necessary law of nature for those who has power to do what they have the power to do, and those without one accepts what they have to accept. As if it happens only in Nigeria, let any fool in Uk impound the Queen's automobil and see hell, or do you think they do not break the law and yet have it justified. Fashola is but a fly in the hand of OBJ. Oh my beloved OBJ(the only tough yoruba man(Igbo actually[in regards to his true father]).

Too many lunatics on the loose on Nairaland as evidenced by these two dogs.
Using you as a point of contact to reach as many of you ignorant beings who mk careless statement without understanding the nitty gritty of the Nigerian state. I impress it on you that that Raji of a boy is making a silly political statement. I think we shd grow above psychophancy and playing to the gallery and focus on real issues. Many vehicles inadvertently abuse traffic laws ever since the inception of the herculean Lagos traffic laws and it will be rational the penalty be soft pedalled since the law is new and so a lot of commuters are still fighting to live up to it. What is expected is payment of commiserate fine and the vehicle is freed. But, Fashola I know in his characteristic self will mk a political statement. For those calling for search warrant, let him try it so we see who has got the guts.. I say fashola will lose this one
