Tinubu May Have to Cry!

Asiwaju is a wonder to behold. Tinubu is incredible too. He's undisputably the main man in Nigerian politics today. He's the most powerful whenever the President is not contesting. He was a senator when Nigeria's eyes was closed. He was a Governor when the sun was just rising and, the father of Governors at dawn. Tinubu fought, alongside others, Abacha and won. As Governor, he survived Obasanjo's greenades. Goodluck Jonathan understands that his name is not something of a joke. He did not only enthrone Buhari, but made his former aides vice-president and ministers in his government. Would you then argue that Asiwaju is not something else?

But, Tinubu may cry soon. Either Ambode loses today's primary or not, Asiwaju has a whole lot to fear. When people call you master, don't rejoice, tell them you are only a servant. Unfortunately, with the humiliation of Ambode, Asiwaju is openly calling himself the master of Lagos politics. He's calling himself the driver of Lagos' wheel in the public glare. He's telling lagosians that they are but his balls. He's telling the discerning that he owns Lagos and everything that breathes within its walls and, of course, all that is true; but it is better not said. Tinubu is openly counting his slaves, and our foregoers said wisely, that when you count your slaves, they become so sad. There will always be a counter coup. The people of Lagos will demand freedom soon, they will revolt and, history will repeat itself. The Jagaban of Lagos is planning his own fall and, I'm afraid.

The people will soon ask questions. They will ask Tinubu what the sins of Ambode are and, by the time such questions are being asked, not many answers will drink water. Thesame Ambode that was once acclaimed the best Governor in Nigeria? The same Ambode that has transformed lagos? Would lagosians have to replace him simply because he had refused to be totally submissive to the master? Would they reject him because of his personal issues with the Jagaban? Will any lagosian accuse Ambode of under-performance? Not even when it is public knowledge that this young man has pleaded with Asiwaju, not even when the people of Lagos know that his wife has appeased the god of Lagos politics.

Tinubu has enemies within the APC, not many Abuja politicians are pleased with him, or so it looks. It will not be a cup of tea to fight Ambode (maybe then as the opposition's candidate ), the opposition, the people of Lagos and, his in-house enemies at the same time. Discretion is a better part of valor. This is only an agidigbo drum, only the wise dances to it and the knowledgeable understands its lyrics.

Hogwash! Nonsense! Rubbish!

Ambode, by the press conference he did, proved that he's guilty of all he was alleged of. He has once again proved Tinubu right. By going ahead to openly confront his benefactor, he has proved to be a very arrogant and disloyal disciple. Who knew Ambode before Tinubu made him governor? That's not the type of person you attempt to rubbish.

And Ambode dares not decamp. Any attempt for him to do so will see him evicted from Alausa before his tenure ends. That will compound his problem even if PDP presents him - though that is very unlikely for PDP to do.

Ayeni faith should shut up.

Everybody's now a political pundit,and trying to be relevant by saying things they know nothing about. Ambode's problem is a party problem, as he has offended the leadership of the party in
Lagos State.

How difficult is this for the Faith's of the world to understand?

And who are the people that will ask questions?The ibo or the calabar people?because the Yoruba's that have a stake in the matter have already asked and gotten their answers,and that is why you see them voting for Sanwo-Olu today.

Unless of course you Faith,want to say you are smarter than the whole Yoruba's in Lagos,and that they lack sense.

The Party has spoken and Ambode is a goner.

Fashola transformed Lagos not ambode.

At a point, jagaban did not want a second term for fashola but fashola had huge support on his side. My wonder is why Ambode has so much enemies.

Watch games of thrones, read the 48 paws of power, the good guys don't always win. Power is Power.
To win takes more than just being good, one has to play some rules and I guess that's where Ambode failed and the world will move on.

As an outsider I used to think Tinubu was the sole person running Lagos but this saga has proven otherwise.

I have read several instances where he had to kowtow to his people's demands.

Tinubu is only the face of his people wishes.
In reality, he is their servant.


Mehn, Yorubas where do I sign up for the Tinubu's school of politics?
I really want to learn how a man can rise to wield such influence over his people.

I just cannot help gushing. That man is a maverick.


@TonyeBarcanista, I totally understand your admiration for him.

Rubbish.

If you must know, Ambode failed lagosians.


One of his biggest mistakes was asking up one morning to sack over 25000 staff of Lawma without a workable option,sacked 33 head of parastaltals as a get back move against Fashola, made himself inaccessible to people who voted him in, made himself an Emperor and demi god and ultimately sinned against GOD by sacking a reverend cos he did not give his wife preferential treatment in the house of GOD.

Can a Governor be that good that even his deputy loathes him.

Now let me blow your mind; Tinubu actually changed his mind at a point and tried to give him a second chance but guess what?, for the first time since 1999, Tinubu stalwarts threatened to rubbish him and go against him if he ever tries to force Ambode on them. Surprised I guess!

Let me just stop here.

Cry me a river! We all know that no king rules forever. Bible let us know that David killed Goliath,and even let us know at his time he was very powerful, was even seen as a man of God's own heart but at the end his strength failed when he thought he can still fight against the enemies of Israel. so save your the story,because we all know there is an end to everything. The fact is he will always be remembered as Jagaban of Lagos.

If you live in Lagos and you understand that between 2015 till date ,Ambode has had a budget of 2.47 trillion naira, then you will understand that the development hasnt matched the budget. You can click my profile and see some of my past posts. The thing is if this happened to fashola during his first term , people would have backed him but this ambode is just a flop. Little investment in healthcare and education, potholes everywhere and ambode is busy putting canoe in places that theres no water all in the name of beautifying Lagos.Lagos is dirty and all.

AMBODE IS A STEP DOWN FROM FASHOLA. FASHOLA IS AN UPGRADE TO TINUBU. LAGOS IS NOT EKITI. Even Banire that doesnt see eye to eye with tinubu is against ambode. Fashola too is against ambode. Tinubu doesnt dictate to themanymore
This is a post from fellow nairalander,benz4pimpwho live in lagos. You cant be in this lagos and not feel the pain;

[b]Please do you live in Lagos?If you do,can you state where you think ambode has done well and I will counter it with proves!!!call Tinubu a thief or rogue,he means well about Lagos!!!Ambode built a bus terminal in ikeja,6-7 months ago,till today that terminal is still closed!!who does that?he spent Lagos money to buy buses,it is so wrong!!That is an open avenue for fraud!!!let me and you invest in Lagos by buying buses to run those routes!!!Telling lagosians that those buses would be fueled with Lagos money opens room for the biggest fraud of the century cus you can’t monitor those buses!!!This alone shows he is being pushed by corrupt commissioners!!!lets go to the roads,when you construct major roads and leave access roads to link those roads,you have done nothing...he is constructing Lagos-Abeokuta,yet all the access roads are bad,once there is little rain,everyone is stranded!!Should we go to property tax?my mum that used to pay 35k now pays 115k,please is this fair?

Ambode had one job and one job only, continue where Fashola left off but to my complete surprise he deviated. Even if party leaders don't like you or he did not want to play the role of a puppet, he should have listened to the people. The people of Epe and Amuwo are not the only Lagosians. Who did the people in Ibeju-Lekki, Mushin, Badagry and so on offend? I have no sympathy for a man too stubborn to care for the masses. Fashola was not perfect but he knew how to help the masses while meeting his leaders' demands!
