Saraki: Why Is Everyone Pointing Finger At Tinubu? by Omotaday(m): 8:06pm On Apr 23, 2016
Im an Ardent reader of this section. I have also been following the issue of Saraki. I need clarification on some issues. Why is everyone poiting accusing finger at Bola Tinubu? The Bola Tinubu i know is a formal governor of Lagos state and also a veteran politician, the last time i check he is not part of the federal executives, he is not a minister of justice, he is not the president of this country. Why then do people think he could have had the power to be punishing Saraki currently through the judiciary? Does he have the control over the FG and its arms? Why is everyone thinking he is behind Saraki case? Why is everyone blaming him for Saraki woes? Please i need reasonable clarifications.

He is one of the founding member of the party, ok but what power does it have to be the one to choose the senate president ? Why him? We have Atiku, Bisi Akande, Obj, Buhari in this same party.



i'm sorry for all the errors up there, I was typing too fast.

Cos some people who have never produced an astute politician in their entire history are just jealous of his towering influence, hence, the bickering and badbelleism

He has a policy of not allowing subordinates or close rivals to shine more than him hence he lamented seriously when he lost the opportunity of becoming Vice President. He even accused Goodluck Jonathan of masterminding the failure of his ambition.

Tinubu: Jonathan Plotting To Block Me From Emerging Buhari’s Running Mate

Responding to an article published in a popular online medium, Sahara Reporters titled, “How Jonathan Blackmailed Bola Tinubu before 2011 Presidential Election: Season of Wrong knives.”

[img]http://media.premiumtimesng.com/wp-content/files/2014/07/400x242xAsiwaju-Bola-Ahmed-Tinubu-APC-41-400x242.jpg.pagespeed.ic.gVWReRtUWS.webp[/img]

A national leader of the All Progressives Congress [APC], Bola Tinubu, has accused President Goodluck Jonathan of mounting a campaign to block him from picking the vice presidential ticket of the party.

He said the president and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], were afraid that the combination of a former Head of State, Muhammadu Buhari, and himself as the APC presidential and vice presidential candidates, could wreck them in the February 14 election.

The former Lagos governor is accusing the President of being behind the report even though Sahara Reporters  is not known to be a fan or mouth piece of Mr. Jonathan.

Mr. Tinubu, is angling to run on the same ticket in the presidential election with Mr. Buhari, who was elected the APC candidate last Thursday.

However, it is believed that some of the party’s leaders are not comfortable with the combination because both are Muslims.

The statement by the Tinubu Media Office, on Tuesday, said the unfolding “smear campaign” against the former governor did not come as a surprise.

It said the campaign against Mr. Tinubu had been in the works for years since the Jonathan-led government realized that the APC leader commanded a powerful political followership.

“The successful merger and birth of the APC posed the most potent threat to the PDP and Tinubu, an architect of the merger, has become a marked man,” the statement said.

“The thought of a Buhari-Tinubu ticket confounds the PDP hierarchy and their crisis-battered president. That Tinubu might be nominated as General Buhari’s running mate also incenses the small element within the APC who joined the party not for its progressive vision but to exploit its platform to press forward their vision of themselves.

“Having failed at halting General Buhari’s bid, the PDP disinformation machine has thrown itself into overdrive trying to stymie the selection of Tinubu. Sadly, some elements within the APC – elevating their personal ambition over party and national interests — have lent themselves to this endeavour.”

Ok agreed, he lost the opportunity of becoming the vice president. Why then do people think he is not the one behind Saraki case? Does he have the power to control the Judiciary?

Yes, his puppet is Vice President, Professor Osinbajo.

Actually, he is still the vice president but through proxy while Saraki is No. 3 citizen himself through politics of inclusion against the earlier plot where Tinubu will have serving proxies in V.President and Senate President to compensate for dropping his Vice-presidential ambition under pressure.

Entirely correct. I actually feel embarrassed for those from the SE obsessed with Tinubu, constantly wishing him harm and are always keen to point the finger of blame at him. Asiwaju has no time for them and continues to do his thing while remaining a mentor to politicians who want to succeed in the very murky and mercilessly treacherous water of Nigerian politics. Is Saraki a saint? Even if Tinubu is behind the travails of Saraki, can some emotional folks tell us whether Saraki did wrong or not?

Throughout the world, because politics is an arena of gladiators, politicians plot to bring down their enemies daily. That is a political fact mature and pragmatic folks accept. If you give your political opponents that you treacherously backstabbed 'ammunition' then why scream if they use it to nail you after you stepped out of line and arrogantly trod on powerful toes as if you are invincible? When Saraki was busy conducting a treacherous and deceitful election, while embarrassing his Party before the world, did people expect the APC to accept such an embarrassment that would only set an international precedence confirming the ruling Party as weak and impotent? It seems some emotional folks don't understand how politics is played ruthlessly around the world, to include even in the finest and oldest democracies, before they come here boring about Tinubu this and Asiwaju that. As if we do not know that the constant mention of Tinubu is the painful wailing of those envious of the man's political brilliance and ability.

I also find it difficult to understand why people always find it difficult to link Tinubu to every problems befalling his real or perceived political enemies.



Tinubu that we all know and judging from his antecedent is not someone that always fight his enemies to death and always mend fences with his opponents once the contest is over and forgives easily. e.g. Femi Pedro , Afikuyomi , Oyinlola, Obj , Atiku , Agbaje, Dokpesi , Osoba and many numerous to mention.




Saraki is his personal enemy and he should learn to carry his cross without blaming others for his evil deeds.

Man Gbawe is here. Your comments are golden and they remind me of the Nairaland of old.

I sincerely hope Nairaland gets back to the good old days of quality engagements and discuss.

Things have become so bad in here.

[b]Why? Ever heard of the story of the witch cried and the baby died the next day?! Or don't you see the power play Thieffnubu has been keen to flex long before a political threat becomes too formidable or do you think if Funsho Williams was alive today that thieffnubu's influence might still be as strong as it is now,that is,if he hasnt dissappeared into oblivion how much more becoming the jagbajantis that he is today,installing puppets all over our political atmsophere?Don't you see the same applies to Saraki in the Federal level?.Buhari is jes helping thieffnubu do his dirty work álà Funsho Williams but the Brain dead President doesn't know that the fight btw the two men is for his position as Presdient come 2019. Even in the event Old Buhari dies before then, it will be hilarious to suggest that Osinbade the commissioner will be a match for Saraki without his master thieffnubu..So the puppet master has decided to become proactive by using the brain dead president's influence to eliminate Saraki from the equation long before that crucial time...the Ugly scheming frog,thieffnubu.[/b]

I'm hoping someone will be able to articulate this as objectively as can possibly be done..

What about Bubu, why is he not being named? Does the buck not stop at his table.?

Saraki is just been silly and trying to blame Tinubu for his troubles He was arraigned on a very different matter to Tinubu. Tinubu was arraigned for having foreign accounts as a governor and he was able to prove it that all the accounts were opened and operated years before his election as a governor and the accounts were not serviced throughout his tenure. While Saraki is facing the law for deliberately not declaring his assets and corruption. His other attempt at roping in Tinubu is also not catchy rather further exposed him as unloyal partyman. (Assuming its true) That Tinubu aspired to be buhari's deputy or supported a Muslim-Muslum ticket which is never a crime but Tinubu surrendered his aspirations in the interest of the party and still make peace with everyone including Saraki himself unlike Saraki who shunned the party at many times , ganged up against the opposition and still doing it, Saraki should just shut it and face his warrant and let Tinubu be.

Tinubu can be jailed for all I care but Saraki must be jailed.


All the arguments mentioning Tinubu's case is the most stupeed argument I have heard in recent times.

Nobody is saying Saraki is not an Armed robber. The argument is that Tinubu is also an armed robber and he was released, therefore release Saraki.

How did we get to this point ?

What a useless nation and set of hopeless and poverty ridden supporters.

Jobless, No education. Some brilliant minds ended up coming out with pass because they cld not concentrate cos of lack of funds .

The same thing their Parents did to the Saraki Father. wasting away their lives for a bowl of porridge while Bukola was sent abroad to study, he is here now and handed over to another generation of slaves. His children are preparing to take their next generation as slaves too.

Stop this rot and now is the right time.

Jumping from court to court, I was hoping to see him asking for his name to be protected that they want to rubbish his hard earned reputation. Instead he is looking for injunction to stop the case that somebody is also a thief.

Anybody caught stealing our common wealth must be jailed.

-ALUU 4 comes to mind

-One guy cut off some ones wrist cos of phone

-A thief was burnt to death recently.

Poverty is a curse and a disease. It deals with your spirit, body and soul and you can hardly reason on ur own.

If you know the reason why the ipob yooths always blamed Yorubas for all negative thread or comments towards their course or anything related to the South East then you will understand why they keep on blaming Tinubu for all their headaches.





The answer is envy.
