Why Do Nigerian Politicians Always Betray Their Benefactors by Ekpeitit(m): 2:41am On Jun 10
In 2008 Putin installed his protege as the president of Russia with the arrangement that he only holds the office for him until 2012 because the Russian constitution back then limited the president to only 2 consecutive terms.
In 2012 Medvedev handed over to Putin and Putin appointed him Prime Minister. Medvedev has been Putin's Prime Minister and right hand man till today.
Now let's return the story to Nigeria.
In 2015 Tinubu installed his protege Osibanjo as Vice President with the arrangement that he supports him (Tinubu) to become president in 2023 because he couldn't be a running mate to Buhari due to the resistance to a Muslim/Muslim ticket.
Fast forward everything to 2022,the same Osibanjo refused to step down for his benefactor and wanted to become president instead but was comprehensively beaten in the presidential primaries by his master.Loyalty is very important in politics and politicians who are not loyal usually don't last long in politics because nobody trusts a traitor or Judas.

Putin was President when he appointed Medevdev. Tinubu was never President ... so how can Osinbanjo be holding seat for him? If Tinubu campaigned for Osinbanjo as VP.... does that mean Osinbanjo should not run for President if Tinubu wants to? How is that being a traitor? If I help you fix your car.... are you ungrateful should I want to use your car and you refuse? In life... always be mindful of the help you receive... it may be given with a hidden agenda.

You're right but don't expect many to agree with you. The average Nigerian is very unprincipled, casually corrupt, crooked and a generally shady character.

To make things worse they love lying to themselves and the world that they are saintly and that it is others that are terrible.

I watched many unprincipled charlatans backing Osinbajo then and claiming he did nothing wrong.

Well, he has just banished himself into political wilderness. I hope those who backed his treachery and egged him on will keep him company there or help him get work once his stint as VP is over next year.
