Isn't Tinubu Over Rated? by aviara: 2:28am On Apr 09, 2022
In the build up to the 2023 general elections, Nigerians are looking for competent and credible candidates who will steer the ship of the Nigeria state in the right direction. This is so important because Nigeria is at a critical time and crossroad in the history of our national life.

Several people have shown interest in aspirong and contesting to be the president of Nigeria. Chief amongst the various aspirants is the former governor of Lagos state Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Many people believes he has what it takes to move Nigeria into her next level of greatness considering his antecedent while holding sway as the governor of Lagos state between 1999 to 2007. While many are strongly in support of Bola Tinubu aspiration, not all believe he has what it takes to be the president of the most populous black nation in the world

I want us to take a look at the performance of Bola Tinubu during his time as governor of Lagos state.

1. Increase in Internally generated revenue:

This is one area Tinubu is usually celebrated to have performed well especially at a time when the federal government seized allocation meant for Lagos state. Howbeit, increasing IGR is not really a big deal. Its something anyone can do. Government can simply increase tax and levies to generate revenue especially when they don't care whether its making life unbearable or not.

Most of the IGR funds comes from crude sources such as exorbitant levies, fines and extortions embarked by the state government all in a bid to increase the value of IGR without thinking about the burden and impact of the citizens. Having a high IGR is good but the question is: at whose expense are these being generated.

What we have seen is double and multiple taxation and levies on petty traders I. The market, endless booking of ticket for okada riders and other transporters etc. Anybody can do this in government but the result at the end of the day is that it will stiffen the growth and sustainability of small scale businesses.

2. Lagos till date can't boast of an efficient and consistent drainkable pipe borne water system.

A state like Lagos that is believed to be a mega city has over the years unable to deliver good and efficient drinkable pipe borne water system in the state despite the huge funds generated internally through the sweat of small business owners. Almost every house in the state has a personal borehole system to meet the personal water needs. Both Tinubu and his predecessors can't boast to have solved this basic social amenity despite the high IGR that flows to the state government coffers every month.

3. Housing scheme

Little is known about the government's efforts at help indigenes and residents of the state to solve housing deficit in the state. Since the days of Lateef Jakande mass housing scheme we have not had anything significant about housing scheme in the state. Government exist to help the plight of the citizens and not that citizens exist to be milked by the government in power. One thing Tinubu's antecedents has clearly shown is that the citizens exist to be milked BH the government. His ideology is that government has power to generate funds through taxes, fines and levies and the people and their businesses can go broke and poor but the government should keep generating high IGR.

4. Godfatherism

Tinubu since he left office has been directly instrumental to all his predecessors. He left office in 2007 but still call the shot till date in the affairs of the state. This is a kind of political
Culture Nigerians are tired and fed up with. Any governor of Lagos state who doesn't do the bidding of Tinubu is sure not to elected or reelected into the office of governor of Lagos state. We saw this example in 2019 when Ambode Akinwumi couldn't secure second term in office because of the feud between him and Tinubu.

5. Building the state for elites and the rich.

The state government is presently building the Eko Atlantic city and no one needs to be told that its not being built for the common man on the street but for the elutes and foreigners. This goes to show that Tinubu's model of governance has no regards for the need of the people but it only has regards for the greed of the government. Markets are destroyed and rebuilt with tax payers money but market traders most times can't even afford the high amounts charged for renting a shop in the market

Apart from the increase in IGR of the state which is generated through stifling the people of the state what exactly did Tinubu achieved while he served as governor of Lagos state between 1999 and 2007?

Buhari's life ambition was to become the democratic president of Nigeria and he emerged, today the country is in a sorry-state.

Tinubu's life ambition is to also become the democratic president of Nigeria.

Sometimes I wonder how this people reason...Dumb people having sleepless night over someone they can never smell 1% of the grace God has bestowed upon him... Only a very stupid person will wake up at 2am to create a thread about someone who is not aware of their miserable existence. The hate in them is too much.

Buharis goal of becoming president was to avenge what Dasuki did to him by putting him in prison. Once he did that everything else no concern am.

Tinubi life ambition is to get oil wells and start collection of taxes on Nigerians while converting national assets to his own use.

When you get 10% commission of taxes collected on behalf of Lagos state, its easy to be a billionaire.

When all Agberos Union remit levies collected from bus drivers, market women and artisians in the entire state to you as their Grand Patron, it is easy to be a billionaire.

When you convert state owned property into yours and set up a radio and tv station on it, its easy to be a billionaire.

When my eyes never open, i thought there was indeed a master plan..until o woke up to see that lagos state is under a task master with no scruples.
