Why Is Tinubu And His Lieutenants Not Campaigning In Southeast And Southsouth? by Penguin2: 11:50am On Mar 28
It is an open secret that Tinubu has always had his eyes on the Nation's highest office. Reason he wanted to deputize Buhari in 2015 to shorten his route to the presidency but for religious sentiments.

Now, as another general election draws nigh, Tinubu and his lieutenants has been clearing the grounds and testing the waters for Tinubu's declaration for the presidency. While his boys are trying to unite the whole of Southwest under Tinubu candidacy, Tinubu himself is doing everything reasonable and unreasonable to warm himself into the heart of northern voters; donating money to victims of Katsina inferno, chairing the 12th Arewa House Lecture and all.

But one thing is conspicuously clear, and that is that neither Tinubu himself nor his lieutenants has made even the remotest of move towards the South East and the South South. And I want to ask why?

My people say, "oku nyu ahuru, ala achuwa ya oso" (literally, when the fowl polutes the air, the grounds chases after it). And by that I mean that Tinubu must be avoiding the SE/SS because of the role he played in the defeat of GEJ, a president they accused of favouring Igbos.

Now, if politics is a game of interest, how would the rest of the country want Igbos to vote for Tinubu, another President that would not be favorably disposed to the Igbos just like Buhari isn't?

Because avoiding the SE/SS in their early campaign clearly indicates where Tinubu is looking to create his allies and if he eventually wins, that would mean another 8 years of an Igbo hating govt.

This is a call on my Igbo brothers and sisters, if they APC ticket goes Southwest, let's not insist on the PDP ticket coming to the East. The North won't vote an Igbo man. Let the presidential ticket go to the North while the VP ticket comes to the East like in 2019. Let the fight be between the North and the West.

If the northerner wins with the PDP with an Igbo man as VP for 8 years, the anti-Igbo sentiments in the North must have been subdued to a very minimal level to create a favorable ground for an Igbo presidency.

This route might be longer, but it's better than having a president that hates Ndigbo for another 8 years.

Penguin is a bird of reason!

I get it.

But that is to say that right now it is a matter of class and social struggle.

Which lays credence to my permutation that the East should not insist on Presidential ticket in PDP.

If he is assured of Northern support joined with zombie followership in the West he doesn't need to. At most he sends a minion.

Your votes are insignificant, we proved that to you in 2015. And I case you are blind and deaf, we proved it again in 2019. It's just sad that the Buhari we put there is cursed.

But this is not the time for fighting within ourselves in the South, let's unite and just return the Presidency to the South first

Are you talking about your 5% insignificant votes?

My stake is the Presidency should come to the South. I really don't care which part of the South. Let ot just come to the South. Let's humiliate the common enemies Hausa/Fulani first, then we can come and sort ourselves out within ourselves.

An Igbo man will not rule against the Yoruba's interest likewise a Yoruba man. And if an unfortunate Southerner rules against the interest of fellow Southerners, we will know how to treat his fucck up. Tinubu paid dearly for supporting Tambuwal against that Ibadan woman for House of Reps Speaker that year

You see why I always say ipobs lack history? Why not go back to 90s that Abiola, a Yoruba was voted for massively in the north against their own son Tofa? According to stats, Igbos are the ones that voted Tofa massively to spite the West. IBB used an Igbo man to annul that election. That is why Igbos ran away to east from West during the annulment Saga. Not everyone plays the kind of clannish politics you play down in East.

And as for a reminder, the east will always be reaping their hatred for west just like your fathers reaped the one Azikwe sowed.

In your dreams. We cooked and we shall eat.

APC is an Islamic Amala and ewedu party and Yoruba are happy to build and benefit from it. Those who served PDP for 2 decades should go where they sowed cos that is the only place they could reap.

Compared to Lagos Oshodi Federal Constituency. The votes will be more than their governorship election votes.

But, but, but, don't let us lose sight of our Goal. The Goal is to take back the Presidency from the Almajaris in the North, or is Buhari, Gandollar, El-Rufai, Atiku and others differences from the Almajaris begging on the streets? The only difference is that this semi-literate Almajaris in power wear clean clothes and live in big houses. In terms of reasoning, they reason the same.

So, the common Goal is to bring the Presidency back to the South. It doesn't matter whether it comes to South East, South South or South West. Let the Presidency come to the South first.

And if you ask me, I think we should give the Igbos a chance. They said they developed Malaysia, India, Saudi, Europe, America, Bangladesh, e.t.c. let's give them a chance. If we did not give Buhari a chance, we wouldn't have known that he has nothing in his head apart from Fura du Nunu. But, I am sure no Southerner is as dull as Buhari even the petty traders in Lagos holdups will do better than Buhari.

No one needs southern unity, Tinubu is already romancing the west and north where the real votes are located. As for the SS they are not as bitter as insignificant SE.

It is a win win for us. And if you turn your back on us as u did for buhari, be ready for another round of marginalisation for another 8yrs. I am sure you re already familiar with wailing. cheesy

Of course sacrifice it to the north as a slave. You are too scared to face a Yoruba man. Later you will come online to be typing rubbish against those you can't face offline in politics. cheesy

You said worst in 2015 and 2019. But here we are, buhari is about rounding off.

The greatest good a politician can do for himself in national arena is to incur the hatred of Igbos cos getting love from that region will ruin such person.

Oga, think with your head. Abiola had no opposition in 1993 because IBB wanted a surrogate in both Abiola and Tofa. IBB disqualified all credible candudates like Yardua to pave way for two low-profile candidates who will readily acceot to step down.. Are you aware that Tofa, the NRC candidate did not even vote for himself? Unfortunately, Abiola thought he wsscsmart and decided to jittison the agreenent with IBB 48hrs to June 12, hence the rest we say is history.
