|Politics / I Don’t Need Your Praise, Tinubu Tells Kashamu by funshint(m): 7:49am On Apr 22|
The national leader of the All Progressives
Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, has rejected
the praises showered on him by Ogun-East
senator-elect, Buruji Kashamu.
Kashamu, who is the Chairman of the
Organisation and Mobilisation Committee of
the Peoples Democratic Party in the South-
West, had last week, described Tinubu as his
role model and the architect of modern
However, Tinubu, in a statement by his media
adviser, Mr. Sunday Dare, described Kashamu
as a pretender.
The former governor of Lagos State said
there was no basis for comparison between
himself and Kashamu, adding that he felt
insulted by the open letter addressed to him
He said, “The days of false adulation are gone
in Nigerian politics. Fake praise singers like
Kashamu will find that their particular craft
is no longer in vogue. During this election
cycle, their practice has dramatically turned
from the way things are to how things used to
“Politicians will no longer be able to change
direction and loyalties as if they were
changing clothes. Those in politics must know
that responsibility and accountability shall
now follow them. One can no longer walk both
sides of the street at the same time. In case
Kashamu has not noticed, the politics of
principle defeated the politics of posturing.”
Tinubu said it was ironic that Kashamu could
praise him after conspiring with other PDP
leaders to produce and broadcast a hate
documentary against him.
He said Kashamu’s actions and lifestyle showed
that President Goodluck Jonathan and the
leader of the PDP in Lagos, Chief Bode George,
were his true role models.
Tinubu said Kashamu, who was rude to elders
like former President Olusegun Obsanjo could
not be his political son
He said, “Kashamu may be prodigal but he is no
political son of Tinubu. Kashamu’s political
lineage tracks to people like Bode George and
President Jonathan. He should direct his
encomiums to these men who are his true role
models. They need his contrived affections
more than Tinubu does.
“This same Kashamu rained insults on former
President Olusegun Obasanjo in a vicious
campaign of calumny. Kashamu’s party, the
PDP, sponsored defamatory documentaries full
of lies and innuendos against me, General
Muhammadu Buhari and other leaders of the
Tinubu urged Kashamu to turn himself to the
United States’ authorities over the accusations
of drug smuggling levelled against him, adding
that only then would he believe that he was a
The former governor said as a person of
repute, he could not be seen to be hobnobbing
with people of questionable character as this
would affect his reputation across the world.
“Please keep your peace until you make your
trip to the USA as a senator-elect. Upon your
return we can then have a conversation. We
can then proceed with your repudiation of the
PDP with a promise that you will stop
corrupting and fouling the political system.
“I am a patriotic, law abiding Nigerian and my
achievements make me world-renowned. I am a
global citizen that travels freely to the USA,
the United Kingdom and other nations. I
associate with individuals who seek democracy
and good governance for all. I do not spend
time with characters whose values are at
variance with societal expectations and laws
governing a decent society.”

|Politics / Re: Senate Presidency: APC Leaders Push For Saraki by funshint(m): 8:17am On Apr 05|
I believe Saraki shld become the Senate president but in the spirit of fairness and national unity the post of speaker of HOA shld be given to SS and SE considering the great risk taken by their members no matter how relatively small their numbers might have been. Most of them suffered gory attacks and rejection, some lost their lives, and some became permanently incapacitated just because of their believe in "Change". Therefore alloting them the post will give them a sense of belonging since what we want is a govt. of national unity. The SW gave block vote to GEJ in 2011 yet we didn't occupy any major position despite that heavens did not fall. GMB shld be careful of ethnic sycophants from his people whom in their selfish interest will want to cause disaffection btw him and his allies from other regions. My humble submission!!
