People who say that politicians without political offices are like fish out of water surely know what they are talking about if the case of an immediate past governor of one of the northern states is anything to go by.

Since he lost his bid for a second term in the 2019 general elections, he has been angling for juicy positions in the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

One of the positions he is eyeing desperately,
SENTRY gathered, is that of the Executive Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service (FIRS) currently occupied by a former Chief Executive Officer of the Lagos State Internal Revenue Service, Dr. Babatunde Fowler.

Although many expect that the former governor would take his scanty academic qualifications into consideration in angling for the juicy office, he is driven by his belief that he could get anything he wants by pulling the right strings.

He is busy pulling the strings in Abuja at the moment and even telling whoever cares to listen that he would succeed Fowler. Some of his close pals were said to have drawn his attention to his limited academic qualifications but he reportedly told them it is a political battle and not an academic one, hence he would fight it to the last point.

Ironically, the former governor was said to have failed woefully to grow the internally generated revenue of his state while he held sway as the state’s chief executive.

What's his name pls op? If he should be allowed to have his way, he'd run down the office in less than a year. Fulanis lack managerial skills. Their antecedents have shown. At a time when Nigeria should recover economically, a UK court slammed a 9bn USD judgement on us. At the time when he was supposed to take action on the case when they took office in 2015, he was busy chasing shadows. We will never forget as Nigerians, a president who reigned when our whole debts were cancelled and another who reigned and heaped up losses or debts on Nigerians due to his negligence.

That is how the northerners do in abuja especially in ministries and parastatals. Once any southerner is at the helm of the leadership, the northers always and always gang up against such southerner till he or she is removed, suspended or ejected from such position and fill the position with their own person

They are able to do so because their are more 'cooperative' unlike we southerners who derive joy in pulling down one another

Lol.
How are you sure Tinibu isn't behind this as he has been rumoured to be part of Osibanjo ills lately.

Just like how he dealt with Fashola,Tinubu wants to remain the Almighty in Yoruba land.He feels threatened by any Yoruba man with a growing political popularity.

Scanty academic qualification, lost his bid for second term. That description fits former Adamawa state governor Jibrilla Umar Bindow. If its him, then he has guts. It was even as a governor that he learnt how to speak mature English. He is scantily educated and he is not even a good administrator.
