|Buhari’s Victory Has Demystified Obasanjo – Oba Of Lagos by GOATandYAMtheory: 10:09am On May 16|
The Oba of Lagos, Rilwan Akiolu, on Wednesday said the election of President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office was a clear proof that no man, but God, gives power.

I grew up to believe, as I was told and have seen, that the North is punctuated with stark illiteracy and intellectual malnutrition. The West is the setting for spark intelligence, and the East, a home for smart and deft tycoons. There are a lot of evidence to buttress this assertion.
However, I have come to doubt this fact recently. Albeit, owing to the political space in Nigeria which the North continues to maintain lead. One may say it's as a result of the northern population, of course. But, is that the only indices? Where the North recruits the West to help perpetuate the former in power, and every hair in the north understands power-play and politics?
Prior to 2015, the North needed the short-lived political romance of the West to oust Jonathan from Villa because, the South East whose politics of bitterness wouldn't guarantee that. It simply fingered Bola Tinubu who has unflinching control of some parts of the West.
After the election, Tinubu snowballed into political oblivion and his relevance at the national parlance waned. He displayed maturity and remained mute as leaving the party was never an option.
Buhari's re-election necessitated the northern oligarchy to smoothens its relationship with Tinubu. After the election, northern oligarchy is using Nasir El-rafai to twaddle the political relevance of Tinubu who has been fingered to replace Buhari in 2023. Clandestine moves are under way to topple Tinubu's hegemony of the West.
Similarly, the promise by Buhari to shift power to the South East is meeting its doom as the potential politician who could slug it out with anybody is having his political blows. Okorocha has been denied his certificate of return and efforts are on top gear to have him arrested. This agrees with the fact that the north still wants to retain power in 2023.
If the North is illiterate, why do they continue to use and dump the West?
Why the so much hegemony of the northern oligarchy?
Why does every Almajiri values election than any intellectual from the East?
This remains a matter for investigation! Political scientists, take note!

The most influential black man in the World is Obasanjo. He is not a violent man.
