2023: Lessons From The #Endsars And Tinubu's Presidential Ambition Matters Arising By Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah 

The months left for the 2023 presidential elections can be counted on our fingertips, in no time Nigerians would take to the polls to elect its next president to succeed HE Muhammadu Buhari. The political parties have all presented their presidential candidates which now puts the ball squarely in the court of the electorates which happens to be the people.

If we must go by precedent, there will be a slew of conspiracy theories circulating for and against presidential candidates across the major political parties. These theories will be coordinated by numerous interest groups, all with the goal of either promoting their chosen candidate or demonizing their opponents.

As expected the proponents of #Endsars palaver at Lekki Toll Gate have resumed their shenanigans to implicate Tinubu with the Lekki Toll Gate shooting of October 20th 2020, their aim is to once again raise sentiment against the presidential ambition of  Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu who happens to be the leading presidential candidate amongst the political parties. 

Following the tragic incident at the Lekki Toll Gate that fateful night, evil minds instigated purposeful provocation against the Jagaban, resulting in the public destruction of properties in Lagos, mostly in the interests of Bola Tinubu and the Lagos State Government. The sad reality was a premeditated attempt to make Tinubu appear to be the leader of the Army Troop that ordered fire on the defenseless demonstrators.

Since the public destruction of properties in Lagos, the Lagos State Government has done its best to recover in record time. We all witnessed the heinous burning of BRT buses and other public assets owned by the Lagos State Government.

Tinubu stepped down as Governor of Lagos State in 2007 and has not held any public office since. The military generals who wrecked Nigeria and drove the country to its knees were not targeted, and neither were the party chairmen of the two political parties that have ruled the country since 1999.

Aren't individuals in charge of delivering electricity to Nigerians? How many of them were targeted even though they kept us in the dark all the time? Tinubu's presidential aspirations has created a big issue for oppositional forces, and if uncontrolled, could result in a disastrous twist in our democracy.

To God be the glory, the terrible incident has been put behind us, with both the Jagaban and the Lagos State government reclaiming some lost ground as a result of the unfortunate incident.

Now some  miscreants have since began posting multiple articles advising Nigerians that when we go to vote, we should remember the perpetrators of the #Endsars atrocity , as though human beings were sacrificed to unknown gods on that precise night. Unfortunately, their goal is to further incriminate Tinubu in their nefarious deeds.

This same school of thought is promoting the idea that a reenactment of the #Endsars protest would result in the APC's total disgrace at the national polls; these people believe that the change would be spontaneous, similar to the #Endsars protest, which was unfortunately hijacked by hungry miscreants.

What sparked the #Endsars uprising in the first place? The outpouring of rage, which subsequently metamorphosed into riots across various Southern States, was sparked by police violence against innocent residents and certain scammers known as Yahoo Yahoo boys.

Every difficulty, failure, and heartbreak, as I constantly say, contains the seed of an equal or larger benefit. The #Endsars protest highlighted the cruelty of some of our state governments toward the people; we all saw how some states kept palliatives worth hundreds of millions from the masses during the Covid-19 lockdown. Palliatives that serves no personal purposes to these leaders were nonetheless being hoarded from the same people that the government claims to serve.

If the State Governments that are meant to be closer to the grassroots can hide palliatives worth billions from its citizens then we should as a matter of urgency look inwards and discover the traitors amongst us.

Every four years, we are faced with the reality of changing the previous years of misery and want by electing trustworthy leaders to drive the country's leadership for the next four years. What have we learned from the #Endsars protest and how can we apply what we've learned in the future?

Look at how Lagos State was massively targeted in order to bring the state to its knees, and yet Lagos never showed any signs of being constrained by the massive damage done by the #Endsars protest, which was hijacked by hoodlums and political sentiments as played by forces opposed to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's rising profile.

When it comes to excellence, Lagos State demonstrated its leadership by overcoming the destruction in a matter of weeks with little economic impact on Lagosians; this demonstrates purposeful leadership on the part of the Lagos State Government.

How many states can boast that if they have been through such a traumatic incident, they will be able to recover in such a little time?

The #Endsars problem is a daily occurrence in Nigeria that can be reduced to a bare minimum by electing a responsive administration in power. Lagos which was the hub of the crisis, is at the vanguard of purposeful growth in comparison to other states in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.

Tinubu is a First Class Accountant who created a career in one of the world's largest multinationals and whose legacies in Lagos are evident to the blind. Unlike some, you do not need to Google Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's accomplishments. He's a proven performer with a long list of accomplishments to his name.

Tinubu is only richer politically than them , which he rightfully deserves because he worked hard for it; he is not spiteful, he is focused, he is developmental, he listens to his followers, he respects his leaders, and he discovers and encourages talents.

Politics is like a mathematical equation; you can't shout and bully your way through it until you obtain a solution, and you can't get a math solution on Google or YouTube. Before you can achieve the solution, you must first find the proper formula and practice it over and over.

Tinubu is a politician with empathy for the people, which is why his popularity crosses all regions. Tinubu is not going out there to steal, but to build a reputation for himself. And to leave a lasting impression is to do the right thing.
"Oruko rere san ju wura ati fadaka lo," as the Yoruba's would say. "A good name is better than gold and silver," the saying goes.

Tinubu is not an enemy of the people, but a genuine friend, and he would reproduce the amazing accomplishments in Lagos if he were in charge of the nation's affairs.

Someone asked me for a giveaway here some days ago, I went to check his profile and posts and saw him campaigning for APC and Tinubu. I was dumbfounded. I mean, how can an unemployed and hopeless youth that doesn't know where the next meal will come from be campaigning or supporting Tinubu or Atiku to win..... You all should know whether I gave him the money or not

The truth is just beginning to come out. The endsars movement started as a very noble movement by nameless and faceless youths who were tired of police brutality. However the movement was high-jacked by PDP and their agents. They paid PDP influencers like Reno, Jackson Use, Rinu. Odanz, Deji Adeyanju, Segalink, Dipo Awojide etc to seize the narrative and use it against the APC. This the PDP did with the backing of Sowore and IPOB youths.

All seemed well when their common enemy was the APC. However elections have come and things have fallen apart. Reno, Segalink, Deji Adeyanju, Odanz and Jackson Ude have to continue to work for PDP but the IPOB youths have broken out supporting Peter Obi. That is why there is war in their camp. The same people that fought together to criticise APC are now criticising the likes of Reno, Deji, Odanz, Dipo etc. Peter Obi is no longer in PDP so they cannot work together any longer.

And Sowore is also running so it has caused more divisions. My own issue is that why they keep blaming Tinubu a man that has not held office since 2007. We heard about the dreaded Okpuzu SARS in Anambra whose leader was Peter Obi’s CSO but it is somehow Tinubu’s fault. Tinubu does not control the army or police but they blame him for Okpuzu SARS.

The truth is now coming out and the enemy’s camp is gradually being exposed.

Same Tinubu said that......

"Those who suffer casualties have to answer some questions too"...

" How are they there? "
" Why were they there? "
" How long were they there? "

A man without conscience.

North pushed tinubu but the mumu of a man didn't get the tricks . They told him they had their consensus candidate but he kicked, went ahead and bought the people's conscience ( those hungry delegates who have never seen dollars in their lives) with money. Buhari once said if he should name his successor, they might kill him. How on earth would the people think it's tinubu? That's where the people should have noticed a signal.

Now that Tinubu had had his way by hook and crook, the mass defection had commenced. Yesterday and today's defection alone in Katsina and other northern states were unimaginable. By January 2023, things go happen.

My dear Voters In Osun State...
..
Please,, what are you guys going to do differently in this upcoming Osun Election - with regards to the Vote-Buying menace??

Are you guys going to stay passive again and allow the Vote-Buyers and Vote-Sellers to rub all your efforts in the mud again?
..
IN FACT,, ARE YOU GUYS GOING TO SELL YOUR VOTES LIKE THOSE VOTERS IN EKITI STATE??

..
Are you guys going to be showing your thumb-printed ballot-papers to the public,, or to some Deadly Vote-Hawks who loiter around the polling-booth..??
..
Are you guys going to use your video cameras to capture both the Vote-Buyers and the Vote-Sellers.,, Including the faces of all the INEC officials and security personnels that are present.??

Notice how some nairaland comments look similar?? It's a coordinated campaign of misinformation aimed at artificially amplifying Tinubu's support.

Tinubu's paid-support group has been activated. Expect to be gaslighted and mentally manipulated into losing moral for Obi or into supporting Tinubu. Watch out and keep your eyes open.

Know that some accounts here are run by people who have been paid to artificially boost support for these political ancestors
All of you, paid-posters should be ashamed of yourselves, Selling Nigeria's future for your selfishness.

God would judge all of you Nigerians that have decided to be used to decieve your fellow citizens and mislead others.
Tinubu is past his prime. We need a new and fresh party. We need to totally dismantle this old system

Tinubu is the Emperor of Lagos, the revenue of Lagos is his biggest personal source of income.

The Governors of lagos are mere stooge for him.

We must not allow such man become president of this country, he would pocket this country.

You know what's worst? The average Yoruba man that would vote him won't even benefit from the corruption, just like an average Lagosian is not benefiting from his loots in lagos.
