Tunde Rahman: Some APC Chieftains Supported Obaseki Because Of 2023 by dre11(m): 6:58pm On Sep 26, 2020
Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

Mr. Tunde Rahman, the Spokesman for All Progressives Congress stalwart, Bola Tinubu, says some chieftains of the APC supported Governor Godwin Obaseki of the Peoples Democratic Party in the Edo State governorship election because of the politics of 2023.

Rahman said this in an article titled, ‘Asiwaju Tinubu and Edo Election’, published by The Cable.

Tinubu is rumoured to be eyeing the nation’s top job in 2023 but he has neither denied nor confirmed this.

However, many politicians within the APC who are also eyeing the Presidency are said to be doing everything possible to ensure that Tinubu’s ambition is truncated.

Contributing to the debate, Rahman stated, “Indeed, it must be pointed out clearly that beneath all the shenanigans that trailed Edo poll, underneath all of that rabble-rousing, rumor-mongering, campaign of calumny, character assassination, deceit and double-dealing is the matter of 2023.

“Rather than first helping their party solidify its stronghold and strengthen it for future elections and re-commit themselves to the party’s ideals and principles, the APC chieftains were tearing at the party’s fabric, destroying its foundation and preparing it for eventual disintegration in the name of playing politics of 2023.

“But like Asiwaju rightly observed, he is but a mere mortal who does not foresee tomorrow. What tomorrow holds, indeed what 2023 holds, is within the province of God Almighty.”

He also explained why his boss recorded a video in which he called on the people of Edo State to vote out Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Tinubu had a few days to the election put out a video calling on the people of the state to reject Obaseki at the polls, accusing the governor of not being a democrat.

Rahman wrote, “The opposition PDP and their agents made a heavy weather of Asiwaju’s video on social media. Now, Asiwaju did not seek to dictate to the people of Edo. He was not out to oust their rights to chose by themselves.

“Far from usurping their power to determine who should govern them, the broadcast was an appeal to the people borne of commitment to democratic principles, clear appreciation of the fundamental role of parliament in a democracy, adherence to the principle of separation of powers, and his irritation by the antic of Governor Obaseki against the 14 lawmakers. It was an appeal for the people to think about the democratic credentials of the candidates in casting their votes.”

Tinubu should stop whining,edo is gone and ondo is next. You can install Mc oluomo or whatever the tout is called as the next governor of Lagos but keep your bat head in Lagos and stop meddling in affairs of other states and telling them to vote for a well known criminal because of your selfish reasons. Buhari will place you and Oshimole where you truly belong in few months time

A clear case of cutting off your nose to spite your face.

They traded the Governorship to PDP because of a Presidency in 3 years time that they are not sure of.

Winning the Edo Governorship would have given the APC a better chance to win more votes from Edo in the 2023 presidency.

But in their myopia they failed to see the bigger picture.

Or maybe they think that the PDP will let their faction of APC win the presidency because they helped them win Edo.

They only way i'd exhornerrate this is if there's actually an agreement between the Amaechi faction and Obaseki to return to APC before 2023.

That's the only way this whole Edo drama would make sense to me.

All these whitewashing will never erase the fact that Tinubu is undemocratic with his insatiable quest for political domination while failing to read the signs of imminent defeat staring him in the face.The fight against him is from within.

Wike told Edo people to vote his party candidate Obaseki.

Tinibu told Edo people to vote his own party candidate Ize Iyanmu.

Why are you foaming in the mouth?

Any politician that doesn't seek maximum political domination is a weakling.

As a matter of fact every politician seeks political domination.

Some succeed others fail.

Tinubu is one of the few politicians who have always been succeeding.

Politics is a game.

Hate the game, Do not hate the player.

Fayemi supported PDP because he hates Tinubu. Fayemi should know that he has no business contesting for President or VP , Tinubu is the most qualified for the office of the President. Fayemi should go to house of representatives or senate house. He doesn't have the political structure in SW.

Book of revelation...

Haters are just chasing after shadows..

Tinubu will not contest. He'll join other well-meaning Nigerians to back Professor Osinbajo..

Tinubu is like Moses.. He's done well. He's sacrificed a lot for Nigeria, like Moses.. But he's not the one to lead us into the promised land. Not because he struck (Aso) Rock twice, like moses, but because he's already too old and deserves some rest - we don't want our daddy to "break down." He's sacrificed so much for us already..

God bless President Buhari.
God bless Professor Osinbajo.
God bless BAT.
God bless Nigerians.
God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Tinubu presidential ambition is dead on arrival. He can only become the President of Lagos Island.



Give us Oduduwa Republic or better still restructure Nigeria.

Nigerian Politicians acknowledging the statement above, is unrealistic They see themselves as god's with life immortal.
But when they get hit, they remember whom they are
