The Trials Of Brother Tinubu - Tunde Odesola by powerfulguy: 2:07am On Oct 12
On the bloody road to the Kogi governorship election, Yahaya Bello threatened the electorate in his re-election campaign song titled, “Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!” But Bello isn’t all about roaring guns, he’s also a humble leader, who dragged the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to Kogi — on their kneels — to beg the aggrieved citizenry for forgiveness of the sins he committed during his first term.

Whether the people of Kogi forgave Bello or not, I don’t know. I, however, know that Bello became governor after an election in which lives were lost and properties destroyed.

Last week, Bello took his gun-booming song to Ondo State — in support of his second-term-seeking colleague, Rotimi Akeredolu, and pulled the trigger again after chanting in Ebira language, ‘We say Aketi should be governor, what’re you saying, what’re you talking, get rid of dirts, if you say you don’t want, you’ll hear the sound of load, dem go hear am, ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!”

Probably because he’s a Senior Advocate or because terror is fairly balanced among the two major political blocs in the state or for the fear of travel ban threatened by the US against rigging and political violence in Nigeria, Akeredolu didn’t encourage the killings and violence that trailed the Kogi governorship election to erupt in Ondo.

Kudos also goes to the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Eyitayo Jegede, who is also a SAN; the candidate of the Zenith Labour Party, Agboola Ajayi; all other governorship candidates, the Independent National Electoral Commission, election observers and the Ondo electorate for a violence-free poll. Thank goodness, Ondo, like Edo, wasn’t soaked in blood.

Being the ruling party, Bello’s APC can be excused by the Presidency and security organisations such as the military, the police and the Department of State Service for threatening to turn the gun on the people of Kogi. Being a favourite political son of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), Bello should enjoy the protection of his father.

Interestingly, the events of the last few weeks within the APC at the national level have shown that the APC has turned its smoking gun on itself, ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta! The APC firearm isn’t meant to silence rivals alone, it can be turned on big and small members, too.

Today, the Jagaban Borgu, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is at the open end of the barrel of the APC gun. He’s tied to the stake called Alpha-Beta Consulting LLP. And the gun is roaring and spitting fire, emitting white smoke at the muzzle, ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta!

In the stillness of the moonless night, a pack of hounds bay at the bat spread upside down on the high tree branch. They bark, they charge and shake the tree but the calculating bat claws the tree bark, unblinking, waiting and watching.

I’m not a fan of Tinubu’s bullion-van politics. It’s a major drawback to our democracy. But, permit me to state unequivocally here and now that ALL of those thirsting for Tinubu’s blood, are equally guilty of the very allegations they level against the husband of Oluremi, whose 60th birthday celebration appeared dimmed by the woeful manner the APC lost Edo State.

I daresay that even if the Jagaban is pushed out of the political equation in 2023, Nigerian democracy will still have to swim in shark-infested deep blue sea as there’s hardly any glimmer of leadership hope among the current power mongers in the country. This is why the masses have to wake up to eternal vigilance and continuously seek to find the needle-in-the-hay candidate for 2023, mobilise and vote for him.

Corruption, hypocrisy and government’s insensitivity are the real existential threats to our democracy and the reason for the hopelessness across the land, upending in the citizenry’s reverberating call for regionalism.

Many ask, “Are the leaders who are misruling Nigeria today not going to be the ones leading the regions if Israel goes to its tent? Is anything going to change?” Yes, something is going to change. And that’s the notion of Abuja as a cash cow which politicians fleece but pretend to take back home to their suffering constituents as dividends of democracy. In a regional government, the government is nearer to the people and, as such, people can more easily hold their leaders accountable unlike now when everyone sees federal allocation from Abuja as national cake to be shared. Regionalism won’t totally stop corruption, but its magnitude won’t be as big and as indecent as it is now.

Ironically, those fighting Tinubu aren’t doing so in the interest of Nigeria. It’s for their own self-interest ahead of 2023. All they wish to achieve is to thoroughly demystify Tinubu and make him totally unsalable as a presidential candidate. Are their ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta shots hitting targets? I’ll say a big YES because this is evidenced by Tinubu not showing up in Ondo to campaign for Akeredolu. His appearance in Ondo would’ve been a big liability, I think.

Does Tinubu deserve pity? Absolutely not. There are too many unanswered questions about him. Surely, scandals aren’t unfamiliar to the Lord of Lagos as questions have been raised in the past as to his parentage, hometown, secondary school education, university education, politics and stupendous wealth – despite not being renowned for any business. It’s dangerous for a man without a political office to wield immeasurable influence on the executive, judiciary and executive of a prosperous state like Lagos as Tinubu does. That’s mafia democracy.

Tinubu deserves no pity. The two-term governor of Lagos State and former senator is stewing in the cauldron of his favourite menu which includes overbearance, vindictiveness, meddlesomeness, nepotism and hypocrisy.

It’s in Tinubu’s Lagos where the yummiest caviars are shared among family members, relatives and Asiwaju-sope sycophants. It’s in Tinubu’s Lagos that Alpha-Beta Consulting LLP was awarded the contract to collect tax revenue and improve the Internally Generated Revenue of Lagos since the last 18 years unquestioned. What then is the job of the thousands of officials of the Lagos Internal Revenue Service when Alpha-Beta Consulting LLP, a small firm in Ijora, Lagos, is tasked with driving revenue on behalf of government?

The current 9th Assembly of the Lagos State legislature owes its life and allegiance to Tinubu on whose mandate the 40-member House stands. Members of the Assembly openly sing the ‘Tinubu Anthem’, “On Your Mandate We Shall Stand,” shamelessly declaring that they derive their legitimacy from Tinubu, and not the electorate.

It’s in Tinubu’s House of Assembly that the Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, spent N4m each on 37 wives of lawmakers for training in Dubai, amid other earth-shaking corruption allegations that included operating 64 bank accounts, owning jaw-dropping number of houses even as Obasa’s female aide, Nike Ajibosin, has refunded millions of naira to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission while he himself has become a regular guest of the EFCC.

But despite all these allegations, Obasa still sits as Chairman, Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures in Nigeria, shunning calls by human rights groups to step aside, pending the conclusion of investigation on his numerous corruption cases.

Hope dims for Nigeria as each day passes. The big promises made by the APC in 2015 have all evaporated. The big masquerader who promised to fight corruption has turned out to be the Abetter-in-Chief of corruption. He promised that his wife won’t run the Office of the First Lady when he ascends the throne. Today, his wife’s contracts are embedded in the national budget while his children live in outrageous opulence.

The present is gloomy, the past is mournful. To stop Tinubu, the political elite are repackaging Goodluck Jonathan, a disaster in governance, whom Nigerians massively voted out in 2015. The move for Jonathan is a confirmation of how lowly Nigeria’s leadership rates the ability of the masses to think.

I don’t see a messiah among this manipulative lot. None of them should cast a stone at Tinubu. Nigeria needs fresh air.

I haven’t seen where you condemn Ekweremadu in any of your posts. This is not an issue of tribe alone but an issue of selective persecution all because of rabid hate.

If you’re not a hypocrite, you should include the numerous loot of Ekweremadu and his mansion in your posts henceforth. I haven’t seen most of you guys doing that.

Even the former convict Kalu looted Abia dry but yet no one from Abia talk about him daily but someone will just sit in Upper Iweka and be disturbing us about Tinubu daily like he is the one swallowing the IGR of their respective states.

This isn't the first time Tinubu is facing guns even more lethal and sophisticated than the present one, he has faced submachine gun, anti aircraft and rocket launchers he survived, 1721 rickety cork and shoot cannot kill the man with extra life, it is just a phase in the life of a widely recognized and most accomplished Africa political both dead or alive, ask the federal government lead by the ineffectual buffon Jonathan then.

How many governors has Ekweremadu installed in Enugu?

How many House of Assembly members are loyal to Ekweremadu in Enugu like the Zombies in Lagos Assembly sing Tinubu's Anthem?

But yet we beat him in Germany, showing we don't tolerate nonsense.

How many times have you people beat Tinubu or even dare raise a voice against his misrule and colonization of the common patrimony of the Yoruba people?

Umahi is driving infrastructural revolution in Ebonyi with meagre IGR of Ebonyi and FG allocation. He is building an international airport too without FG assistance.

Obiano is building an international Cargo airport in Anambra without FG assistance.

Now, tell me one infrastructure of repute that Lagos has embarked on since 1999 with the homongous IGR that state generates.

The international airport in Lagos was built by federal government.

The Apapa Seaport was built by FG.

Third Mainland bridge was built by FG.

What has Lagos done with its money?

Fourth Mainland bridge has been a 3D design for decades.

Lagos light rail has been under construction since 2007.

Are you not ashamed yet?

Why can't you open your eyes and see that everyone cannot be wrong and you are the only on right?

The NBS said Lagos generated over 336bn naira in half of this year alone. Now add FG allocation and know how much that accrued to the state.

Where is the money?

So beating politician means you are wise? I wouldn’t expect much from an IPOB tho. So what have you achieved from beating Ekweremadu?

You beat him but will still vote him again if election is held 100 times. He don dey in the Senate position since 2003. Even after he looted that much to puarchase asset abroad, you guys still voted him with majority votes.

Ikpeazu turned Abia into a portrait of decay, he won his re-election in 2019 with overwhelming votes while you guys come on Nairaland to abuse him the next day.

What about Orji Kalu? He is still currently in the senate voted by his people even with the fact that he is stupendously corrupt with recent history as an ex-convict.

What about the Orjis in Abia who are the Godfather such that you have father and son ruling over you and none of you can blink.

Politics is a full-time job for some people and you don’t hate someone because he is instrumental in the success of his comrades. Tinubu left office since 2007, he can be as greedy as your own politicians who proceeded as Senators and etc but he chose to play his own politics most times usually opposition until he broke into the national scene in 2015.

Are you angry that some House of Rep members are loyal to him? That’s because he has been instrumental one way or the other to their success and not everybody is a traitor that pay their benefactor with betrayal.
