I Don’t Know My Political Future – Fashola by Firefire(m): 12:56am On Nov 11, 2014
With six months left in his tenure, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State has said he did not know what his next step in politics would be.

Fashola, who said this during an interview with Channels Television, noted that in spite of the efforts of the Peoples Democratic Party, his party, the All Progressives Congress, would retain Lagos State in 2015.

When asked what his next step in politics would be, he said, “I don’t know honestly. I do well in multitasking. I have a job to do that runs until May 2015. And up till now people haven’t stopped asking me and my government for services. My mandate expires on the 29th of May and I’m going to give my best shot until the very final hour.”

He added that that he hoped that his successor would be able to do better than he has done.

On whether he would influence the emergence of the next governor of Lagos, Fashola said it was left for the electorate to decide.

“I’ve met those who are running for governor on the platform of my party and I think all of them are good enough to lead us but the ultimate choice of who will lead us will depend on the larger body polity and the registered voters,” he said

On the ongoing distribution of permanent voter cards in the state, Fashola said the Independent National Electoral Commission has shown that it was poised to do the bidding of some political interests.

Apparently referring to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Attahiru Jega, the governors said “if you take a job you cannot do, resign.”

“I don’t know what else an electoral commission would be doing after an election other than to be planning for the next election. Let me be fair and admit that election planning is a very huge logistics. I know election do not achieve 100 per cent. That is why election monitors look out for a minimum standard; not what the umpire says but what the participants say. If the foundation of the election which is the voters’ registration is faulty then we may be heading for trouble.”

“This is what should have been over four years. When INEC started this exercise, they started with six states; another six states and one expected that they would get better. Suddenly, they took 12 states at the same and halfway they said they were abandoning some states. What kind of message are you sending? Look at the states involved Lagos, Kano and Rivers, in the South-South, easily the largest in that area. Ogun State, densely populated, sharing borders with Lagos. These make up a significant voting population.”

What a confused man, under a confused platform with a confused ambition. What political future again? With the massive corruption in your state, and communal wealth of Lagosians shared with his godfather Tinubu for future patronage. Fashola popularity do not go beyond Lagos and few South West states. Those deceiving him to be relevant in National polity are only doing so to polish his ego. The event of 2015, vituperation and mob followership of opposition that will characterize Lagos election will as a result of fashola disconnect with the very poor of the state he made every effort to strangulate.

We all hope so, but in politics, there MUST be godfathers. The truth remains. Politicians needs sponsors, either financial or for endorsement, and as far as Lagos State is concerned, Tinubu remains a force to be contended with.

Fashola should pick up the APCs presidential form. He shouldn't listen to those old goons. Their time is over. This is our time, our generation. Those who ruled us when we were children should pave way for us to rule our children.

Since u really performed well in Lagos, I personally will like u to contest for presidency in 2019. I will also advice u to turn down the issue of being a running mate to either Atiku or Buhari because(1)- Nigerians are not contented with a Muslim/Muslim ticket.(2)It may jeopardize ur chances of being successful in 2019 elections in case you choose to run. That is my personal advice to u.

Obviously not running for anything again.

Well, Nigeria has a lot of good men and women who could change things....but they refuse to come forth....instead they stay on Nairaland and play Northerners vs Southerners.

You know, I don't understand Nigerians. Really, I don't. We should stop waiting for superheroes. We should start doing something for change.

Oh well, in an oil rich society....since people's role is just to receive their share of the oil cake....there is nothing left to do but to gladly receive...and gladly fight for it if nothing happens. Change in such a society is a dream.

Just thinking out loud this morning. I really am not too happy.

(Modified at 7.20 am)...There are millions of Nigerians out there who could help inspire our government and people to higher ideals.
