Dear Teens, Were You Told Of These About Tinubu Too? —by Omogbolahan Babs by adefitim(m): 8:10pm On Sep 05
If there was any great disservice that the former handlers of the Nigeria leadership structure did that posterity may not forgive, and even if forgiven may never forget among other malfeasance governance deliverables bequeathed to Nigeria and her people, it was the removal of history as a subject from our educational curriculum. The Obasanjo-led government in spite of its humongous and glaring failures did the country ‘bad thing’ to use the street language. Today, Nigeria reeks of appalling ignorance among her young adults (18-25 years) about her historical past. The apogee of ignorance displayed by this army of wonderful and egghead youths is discombobulating. Do you blame them? Of course not. Today, the country experiences the damage of the removal of history from our schools. The kids have no sense of history about happenings in times past about their own country.

In today’s digital age, these hordes of youths resort to social media to learn about their history. Sadly, the same social media today is replete with half truths, fake, sham and unsubstantiated news and stories and many distorted narratives. The political space has had its fair share of this menace. And this, the public sees play out currently in the several propaganda flying around about political players prominent among which is the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader and Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The country’s legion of youths has repeatedly been told many unfounded tales by moonlight to disparage the personage of the political juggernaut. His uncheckable meteoric political rise for many years has hitherto been a source of migraine to his adversaries. And typical of human nature, bad or fake news sells faster and the gullible youth fall for these cheap blackmails over and over again about Nigeria’s inarguably political generalissimo of all times.

To the teeming youths, as much as the social media blogosphere has been inundated with several ‘dirty’ but pseudo innuendos and/or propaganda against Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have you also been informed about the relentless efforts same man, who today is the most vilified non-political office holder did towards the democracy Nigeria now enjoys unhindered? Were you told he was hounded into the Alagbon prison, Lagos alongside Senator Abu Ibrahim and some other pro-democracy activists in the mid-90’s during the military junta? Did you ever hear of how Asiwaju Bola Tinubu was financing the pro-democracy groups after his mysterious escape from the military ‘killer squad’ into exile? For every one lie told to you about Asiwaju Bola Tinubu by his political ‘foes’, there are at least ten (10) other landmarks attributable to him that were not told to the public. The mischiefmakers will hoard beautiful stories about Asiwaju because the more positive story told about him, the lesser their chance of political survival.

O ye youths! Facts are sacred and sacrosanct. It is doubtful if you were ever told of the many firsts of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Lagos State Governor, after his return into the country from exile. For the purpose of education and posterity, the same man his adversaries calumniate and traduce every now and then pioneered several milestones in the political annals of Nigeria today. These records remain unbeatable among the contenders for the number one seat of the country. And it is expected that with such intimidating records, it is only normal that the naysayers and misanthropes will thrive on propaganda and falsehoods. Therefore, as youths, the onus lies on us as a demography with cerebral and sound medulla to be able to sieve the chaff from the grains. A few of such milestones pioneered by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu include but not limited to the following;

 He pioneered the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) in Lagos

 He pioneered the Lagos modern intra-city rail

 He envisioned today’s Lekki Free Trade Zone

 He restructured the Operation Sweep to Rapid Response Squad that stopped incessant security threats

 He took Lagos from financial penury to prosperity

 He envisioned the Eko Atlantic City

 He opened up Lekki, Ajah and its environs

 He was the first politician in Nigeria to set up transition council that birthed his blueprint for modern Lagos

 He was the first Muslim Governor that started New Year Thanksgiving in Lagos State

 He was the first governor that created the Ministry of Budget & Planning

 He was the first governor that introduced the Office of the Chief of Staff now adopted by the country

 He was the first governor that introduced Ministry of Women Affairs, Poverty Alleviation, Water Resources as well as Rural Development

 He was the first person that brought Independent Power Project (IPP) into the country

 He set up several agencies like LASTMA, LAMATA, LASEMA among others that took your parents off the streets of labour market.

Dear youths, above are very few of the successes recorded by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Lagos State Governor. Therefore, as we move into the electioneering proper, it is germane that you take caution, check the antecedents of those who have put themselves forward to serve the nation. You must be able to juxtapose their achievements, landmarks and milestones in other to make informed decision. The future of this country lies greatly in your hands. The decision you make today will either make the country better for us all or mar the future of yet-to-birth generation.

May Nigeria triumph!

You deserve better slap. Na so so pioneered pioneered na him i dey see. What did Bola Tinubu do for the benefit of the residents of Lagos other than designing a scheme where he collects 10% of their daily sweat and earnings through Alpha Beta and steal and convert public property to his own use

If Tinubu pioneered intra city rail, what rail line did Goveenor Lateef Jakande plan for that this same Buhari aborted. And who told you that there was no intra city rail services offered by the Nigeria Railway Corporation from Agbado Station on the State border down to Iddo terminal since the 1980's. I rode even till 1999. And the Lagos version version of the rail is still not in operation about 11 years after construction started in 2011.

You say Tinubi opened up Lekki as in no human being was living there before abi ? Or Tinubu gave them free land that they did not buy ? Whereas it is the Chukwuma Soludo 2005 banking reforms that saw more people employed in the banks after they were consolidated into 25 banks. The banks employed thousands of people and paid them well and since most branches and headquarters were the Island, people relocated enmasw to live nearer to their work places and so people bought rented houses and bought land in Lekki and Ajah axis. Tinubu did nada to Lekki .

How does renaming Marwa "Operation Sweep" to Rapid Response Squad qualify as an achievement?

Abeg go siddon one place. Na person wey dem born yesterday or wey just come Lagos after 2003 una go dey follow talk this nonsense.
