|Complacency Hatred Subversion. by Mickykarim: 8:48am On Jul 25, 2022|
Against all predictions and expectations. The gubernatorial election into the government house of the state of Osun came on the backdrop of an astonishing result. Prognosis postmortems and post-election analysis follows for what might have returned such a disappointment for one side and a pyrrhic victory for the party claiming victory. What could be responsible with a possible explanation for what went wrong and where?
The factors are too many amongst which is the header.
The party in government, APC must have taken too many things for granted. The fact that they are in power with the power of incumbency resting on their shoulders, squarely and that nothing could possibly go wrong. Having put its house in order and that nothing of significance may upturn or upset its chances at the polls.
PDP, the main opposition party went to court praying the instrumentality of the judiciary to halt the government in power to no avail itself the use of the state’s security outfit which it controls to an extent. AMOTEKUN was prevented from partaking in the election leaving the entire security of the exercise in the hands and discretion of federal law agencies and in Nigeria me and you can already predict the directions and compromises that pervades the characteristic of federal security apparatus. In election matters in particular.
A COLOSSUS AVOIDABLE MISCALCUALTION OF IMMENSE PROPORTION WITH END JUSTIFYING AN UNTOWARD UNFAVOURABLE RESULT FOR THE APC.
Why in the world, you would ask? Would a government in charge of security allows itself to divest unchallenged from one of its moral obligations to the people and when it mattered most?
HOW ON EARTH AND IN THE WORLD WOULD A GOVERNMENT YEILD TO A MEAN TO DISLODGE IT FROM POWER AND OFFICE. WHAT AN UNPRECEDENTED SURRENDER.
APC did not challenge the spurious inhibiting order of the court, thereby gave the opposition a free rein of security during the election. The ruling party conceded its primary functions to the opponent in a crucial election. SERIOUSLY!
One of the too many lapses by which the APC unwittingly unknowingly and by UNFORCED ERROR relinquished power to the main opposition in the state of Osun.
IT IS NO LONGER NEWS THAT PROF. Wole Soyinka MADE A STATEMENT OF CALUMNY, POST ELECTION DILUTED INSINUATION.
Negative vibes against the APC prior to the election, during and after the elections was a common factor and aptly expressed in bad vein by the elderly erudite professor. “Justice has been served” rings out from the professor in glaring screams. He alluded to an arrogance of distortions of unestablished fact that the APC lost was a reward for the accommodation of Chief Iyiola Omisore, the national secretary of the party. Who was not known to have pulled the trigger that killed the Cicero at Esa Oke, chief Bola Ige. The maverick ORATOR politician wordsmith of the WEST who was gruesomely murdered in his home when he was a serving minister of Justice and the AGF, whilst in office as the chief law and security officer of the nation under the presidency and tenure of the government of the Otta BRUTE, OBJ.
The other hateful sleeve in Lagos is Ayo Adebanjo. The near centenarian with abundant compulsion for an abundant bitter spleen for the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Chief Adebanjo would readily deliver Tinubu to the enemies at the slightest opportunity and for nothing.
MEANWHILE, Iyiola Omisore DELIVERED HIS CONSTITUENCY AS ANTICIPATED. THEREFORE, THE UNREGULATED NONE SELF-RESTRAINING OUTBURST BY THE PROF, WAS ANYTHING BUT WISE. UNECESSARY AND ABSURD.
Not forgetting that some sections of the press both local and online and in real time were already jubilating and celebrating the PDP with the initial result of polls at his locality, his ward where their candidate casts his vote. Neglecting the results for governor Oyetola at his own ward.
The civil service town of Osogbo was reported to have voted against the governor because he did not pay the arears of salary owed them by the previous administration who was also alleged to not have paid salaries in full. Yet, took it on the government and person of Governor Gboyega Oyetola who ensured and made it a point of commitment to not owe any salary since he took the rein of office and made through his promise and resolution. He did not owe any salary till date. Therefore, the vendetta was not about entitlement of service rather an endemic hatred built up over the years.
WITH THE FOREGOING, YOU MAY ALREADY BE WITNESSING FROM OUTSET THE NEGATIVITY PROPELLED TOWARDS THE APC.
The aiding involvement and culpability of the press and the unfairness of the people who adjudged the outcome of the election as FREE FAIR AND JUST appears the contrast and unprecedented.
Subversive elements of the party were exposed for what they truly were. Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola who rode to prominence by becoming a two-term serving governor of the state of Osun on the platform of the APC happened to be one of the insatiable humans who nursed bitter spleens against the party that made him. Although, the effect and impact of his waywardness was not as effective as the venom he spouted for Tinubu. Both the relative and relational associations with the standings of the party in the polls. However, he cannot be completely absolved from the misfortunes of the party in the election. Here was a man who became governor of the state twice in successive sequence threw all that away due to selfish garb with greedy mien. The cloak of delusion of grandeur adorns by Ogbeni Aregbesola with make-believe outlook of a man of God became shredded. His claim to devout Islamic practices with the personae and profile of a dogmatic zealot tumbled with his disposition to the party that gave so much to him. To even think that Aregbesola is a serving minister of the federal republic of Nigeria nominated and sponsored to the position by the APC makes Ogbeni Rauf Satanic and ungodly for whatever his grouse with misgivings against his party might be. Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola was only able to let us into the deceit and deep-seated lip service closeness to the almighty God. The hypocrisy of the people in the ilk of Rauf Aregbesola would make feeble men not attain the pedestal for heavenly thirst. Aregbesola displays the traits of a mere fundamentalist, not of God. His act and conduct teach the literary letters of the faith and not the actual practices. He is just an Islamic religion addict whose trousers ends well above and away from the knots of the ankles. He Bears all the trappings of fanaticism and when he goes abroad his Sokoto gets beyond his heels all the way down to the soles of his shoes, flapping the soils.
IT IS NOT AS IF MR. Aregbesola MATTERS MUCH OR A MAJOR FACTOR IN THE POLITICS OF THE STATE OF Osun. HOWEVER, THE BITTERNESS OF HIS SOUL PORTENDS AND RADIATES NEGATIVE VIBERATIONS TO HIS ENVIRONS.
His first coming as governor was made possible by the intervention of the courts and whilst a two-term serving governor could not and did not facilitate smooth transition or election victory to his successor from same party. Still had to go through a runoff due to tin margin and the courts, eventually. He was a paper weight or weightless if you would in the political terrains of his state. His expletives for an “egbon” a veiled reference to the person of ABAT. The singular benefactor that made him a political figure in the annals of Nigerian political landscape. Without Tinubu no one may have known or heard about an ingrate character otherwise known as a particular Ogbeni, who bites the fingers that fed him. His expressive vitriols towards Tinubu were soulless in the thick of political up heal that rocked the state recently was nothing but a betrayal and a letdown of the worst kind by any beneficiary. Ogbeni Aregbesola in a vindictive mien in BOSY SOUL AND OUTPOST.
THE LIKES OF Rauf Aregbesola ABOUNDS IN THE APC AND STILL LURKS AROUND ON THE LOOSE AND MUST BE WEEDED OUT. ELSE, THEY STILL SPELLS DOOM FOR THE APC AND AT THE PERIL OF THE PARTY.
People who clamour and agitate for a “Yoruba nation” are fundamental ignoramuses. YORUBA people are a different BUNDLE of a kind.
EVERY LETTER OF THE PIECE IN THE EMEBEDDED -T.R.I.P- LINK BEARS TESTAMENT TO THE FACT.

Would you say the head of the party and president of the nation Muhammadu Buhari manifests the indices of a SABOTEUR? The body language with subtle moves suggests and indicated the label. You will recall how he subverted the chance of his party at the Edo governorship election which returned the state for Obasek or Obaseki, the dual character in Benin. President Buhari disbanded the executive of his own party on the eve of a crucial election.
He has rushed to congratulate the opponent of his party and candidate, even when the party executives have not yet come to term with the strange turn of event in the Osun polls. Including, the chairman of APC informed the public that he is yet to be told and get the report of the elections. How else does one feel and think that the leader of the APC compromised his position and the position of his party. How else do you tell a saboteur and subversive elements in an organization. With the ANTI-PARY tendencies of President Buhari, you may not be far from the conclusion of an internal actor with workings against own group and interest of members of his association.
President Buhari is behaving like someone who has had his share and fulfilled his ambition and nothing else matters. Most INSENSITIVE SELFISH and INCONSIDERATE.
USUALLY AND BY CONVENTION A PARTY IN A CONTEST WOULD HAVE TO EVALUATE ASSESS AND ANALYSE THE OUTCOME AND PARTICIPATION IN AN EXERCISE BEFORE PRONOUNCEMENT TO WITH. NOT IN THE CHARACTER OF PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari WHO HAPPENS TO BELONG TO THE APC. THE PARTY THROUGH WHICH HE IS THE CURRENT SERVING PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.
There were too many untoward and backward forces against the APC in the Osun polls, by which the result may not have been different.
WITH THE FOREGOING ENUMERATIONS WOULD ABAT HAVE TO WATCH HIS BACK. THERE APPEARS TO BE TOO MANY DAGGERS DRAWN WITHOUT HIS KNOWING. THIS IS PERHAPS DIVINE FOR HIM TO BE ON A CAUTIOUS WATCH.
Ota ti po ju. Too many enemies.
