*COMPELLING QUESTIONS ON TODAY'S MEETING OF APC PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRANTS FROM SOUTHWEST*

By Tobi Aradeyo

There has been some buzz about a meeting called recently by leaders of the APC in the Southwest for all presidential aspirants in the zone. The names of Chief Bisi Akande and Aremo Olusegun Osoba have been mentioned as behind it, in an attempt to forge some unanimity of purpose on the 2023 Presidential bid.

But while this may be seen as a well-intentioned effort, there are some compelling issues.

From the look of things, it appears that very little objectivity can be expected at this meeting.

First of all, several of the participants are beholden to Asiwaju and will never tell him the truth. Check this out: Baba Akande is clearly not going to confront Tinubu on any point. He has benefited extensively from Tinubu’s largesse over the years.

Baba came up in his recent book with the controverted narrative that Asiwaju nominated Osinbajo when in fact Tinubu opposed his nomination when it mattered most, wanting the VP post desperately for himself.

Another prominent attendee expexted is Femi Gbajabiamila, who has expended every resource and energy in propagating Tinubu’s candidacy. In any event as a Lagos politician his political future depends on Tinubu’s pleasure.

There will also be Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu at the meeting. In fact he would be the host. But what will poor Sanwo-Olu be doing at the meeting? His political future and second term hang in the balance. He will be prepared to physically slap Osinbajo if he is ordered to do so by Tinubu!

Same as Tinubu’s cousin and protege Gboyega Oyetola, the Governor of Osun State. Can he dare speak truth to the Jagaban? Of course not.

For some of the elders who may also be at the meeting, the well known fact is that many of them are either current beneficiaries of the former Lagos State Governor or are certainly sympathetic to him already regarding this 2023 matter. Who doesn’t know that many of them owe their political ascendency to the Jagaban?

Even Pastor Tunde Bakare, did he not recently preach a sermon pontificating on why Tinubu should get the support of everyone to be President? Even there are claims that his entering the Presidential race now is only to secure a platform to force down the hands of the VP somehow down the road.

So what kind of meeting is this going to be? How objective can the deliberations go? Who and who ought to be attending? In whose interest is this meeting called? These are the pointers for people to follow as this drama unfolds soon at the Flag House of the Lagos Government at the Marina.

The truth is that some of them have eaten from Bola's pot and they may be able to tell him the truth

Tinubu dey forbid consesus for Abuja

But he wants to be consesus from the south west

Anyway his desperation is dead on arrival, osinbajo is in south east, he is the last person that would enter Lagos till next month

Fayemi and Amosun are not going, bakare have already seen the handwriting on the wall
