Politics / Re: Soludo: More Than Half Of Anambra People Live Outside State by duwdu: 12:26am On Jul 04, 2022
FreeStuffsNG:


Not true sir. I used to think that Igbos are a majority in population and that we have more Igbo outside SE but data has proven otherwise. There are more Igbo living in the 5 Igbo SE states and Anambra is no exception..

My hypothesis is that Igbo population has been inflated. The most emperical data show that 20% of Igbo are domiciled outside the SE, 80% are domiciled within the 5 Igbo SE states and the Igbo population is actually a minority population.

Luckily, numbers do not have emotion. Below are the facts:

1. Due to history, cultural affinity, linguistic spread of the Igbo language and Igbo-speakers, most of this 20% Igbo living outside Igboland will be more in states such as Rivers, Delta, Kogi and Benue that border the 5 Igbo SE states than far away places like Lagos, Kano and Abuja.

2. Data from recent inec voters registration for Osun alone is higher than the total registration in Igbo South East (screenshot below)

3. Satelite image of Aba, Onitsha, Enugu, Ebonyi compared to Ibadan show a small area of dense population https://www.nairaland.com/7186666/aba-ibadan-satellite-picture-aba

4. Data from 2021 JAMB registration show that 447,857 are indigenes of SW states that registered their states of origin as Lagos, Oyo, Osun, Ekiti, Ondo and Ogun for JAMB against 320,306 indigenes of SE that registered their states of origin as Abia, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra. Only 20% (70K out of the 320K) of the JAMB candidates of SE origin live outside the 5 Igbo SE states.

5. Demograhics data of internet subscribers also support my hypothesis like other demographic data captured with better data capturing tools, https://www.nairaland.com/7203013/states-nigeria-largest-internet-subscribers that validated my hypothesis that Igbo population in SE is inflated and the Igbo are a minority group in terms of population.

6. Data from overall inec voters registration show Igbo among the lowest with the only Igbo state, Anambra state, at the bottom of the top 10 https://nairametrics.com/2022/06/30/top-10-states-with-the-highest-number-of-registered-voters-as-of-june-27-2022/

The politicians knew this reality all along hence no serious effort to canvass for votes aggressively in SE like they do for other zones.

SE may just be same population as states with similar land size as it like Kaduna or Katsina or Oyo and the SE is by far the least populated of all the geopolitical zones.

As things stand now, no serious contender can bank on votes from SE and a serious contender will not get the voting strength incentive from the SE.

The SE is a minority vote region even far behind the minority tribes-dominated SS from these data.

Data from JAMB show the Igbo population is abysmally low, so low that only Imo state featured in the top 10 states with registered indigenes sitting for JAMB and for Igbo dominated schools, the Igbo were no. 4 top for universities with UNN ,No. 8 for polytechnics and no single college of Education in Igboland made it among the top 10 colleges of Education with highest registered JAMB candidates !
https://utmeofficial.com.ng/jamb/jamb-registration-statistics-2020-2021-by-course-universities-polytechnics-nce-and-state-of-origin/

On number of JAMB applicants who are Igbo, Anambra state is the Igbo state with the highest number of registered candidates yet was No. 16 on the list far far behind! And all the JAMB candidates registered for JAMB in the whole of SE just adds up to about the total candidates in Lagos state alone or sum for Oyo and Ogun.

As at now the best and cleanest data indicate that about 80% of Igbo are domiciled in the SE while 20% are domiciled outside the 5 Igbo SE states.

Out of the 320,306 Igbo candidates in the 2020-2021, max.(when you add total candidates that registered for JAMB in those 5 SE states and assume they are all Igbo) only about 250K(~80%)account for candidates that sat for exam in the SE while about 70K(20%) are Igbo candidates who registered outside the SE to represent the total Igbo candidates.
It makes sense because you have more Igbo domiciled in SE than outside SE.


So where is the high Igbo population I used to imagine??

Internet subscribers; low

Inec registration; low

Jamb applicants writing Jamb in SE; low;

Jamb applicants based on State of origin; low

land mass; low
Yet
Analogue Census; High(?)

So all these data conflate to prove that Igbo are a minority group by population but have inflated numbers which call for scientific enquiry.

Politics / Re: My Rise Through Life: Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s Special Interview. Must Read! by duwdu: 9:25pm On Jun 30, 2022
AwaLokan:
CONTINUATION!

What year was that?

That was in 1985/1986. I was determined to return to Nigeria someday. I contemplated returning to Deloitte and at the same time coming back to Nigeria. I was discriminated against. I quit GTE. I decided to go back to Deloitte. While I was still contemplating, Deloitte was relocating from New York and I looked forward to how I would be given extra allowances and bonuses.

At that time also, Mobil was recruiting for its Corporate Audit Department in the United Kingdom office. I went there and I got the offer. The rest is history.


Was Bade Ojora in Mobil at that time?

He was still in Mobil. I don’t want to go through what I did when I was in the Corporate Office in London. I was a corporate auditor, but I was a whiz-kid, an assertive one, highly professional. I was always in suspenders and all that. I came on assignment to audit Mobil Nigeria.

Were you recruited abroad and sent here?

No. I was recruited in the UK. That was Mobil Foreign; it is completely different from Nigerian operation. They have the audit right, the corporate audit regulation to audit Nigeria. I came and they said they needed an auditor in Nigeria. I went through the process.

Solomon Oladunni was the manager in charge of administration. He, Bade Ojora and Adesanya persuaded me to take the job. The title I was looking for was audit manager. They said I did not have any experience in Nigeria. I faced another level of discrimination. I was given an offer they knew I would reject, but I was determined to stay. The financial controller, a white man, called me to his office to say :”the people there didn’t want you; your own countrymen!’ He added: ‘Whatever they give you, take it, I’m here.’ I was shocked.

At the time, there was a kind of connection between the director of finance and one guy. They were both from Shagamu. And as it played out, I was only made an auditor because they said I didn’t have a Nigerian experience.


But you rose to become the treasurer…

I rose to become the general auditor there.
The audit manager, an Australian, was about leaving for his country and he told me that I was badly needed, particularly because I am a Nigerian. He said: “With this resume, you are so rich, you have experience. I know what Alphonso Olusanya, the financial controller, was trying to do.” He added that the other person they wanted to bring in has only local experience (I don’t want to mention his name because he is my friend).


And the money was not bad, but only the title…

The money was not bad. I took the offer to work in Mobil because I was tired of the discrimination I suffered overseas and had made up my mind that I would not work for any other company but an American company. I was encouraged to join their team and I met Oladunni, Pius Akinyelure, all of them. The whiteman told me to just come over and prove myself and that I would “get there”. He had been the supervisor of the guy blocking me overseas. And when the whiteman came to Nigeria, they did not give him the title, too. He said: ‘Here, I am financial adviser; I don’t care what title they give me, I am getting my salary and I have my responsibilities to New York. Don’t worry.”


Apart from this initial discrimination that you confronted, what other challenges did you face?

The system was poor. I met a very disorganized work environment here. I really did a lot to prove myself. I faced a lot of challenges, but my training and my background from the United States helped my career. I wrote so many audit queries and reports.

We learnt that you wrote one that caused an earthquake!

A: There were so many of them. I wrote one on Bob Eriksson, who was the Chairman/Managing Director. He was weak in his corporate control of the finances of Mobil and I boldly wrote the report based on that. And here was the Chairman/Managing Director, who was affected by the report. Everybody raised an eyebrow. But I emphasised that I was an independent auditor. I said: ‘This is my report, this is my resignation letter.’ I sent a copy of the report to the head office in New York. I wanted to strengthen my independence and professionalism.

The third day, a signal came from New York. The managing director was to be recalled and the corporate audit manager was on his way to check the report. When he came, I had my audit file. All the findings in the report and my recommendations were accepted. They recalled the MD/Chairman and he was demoted. The company rejected my letter of resignation and promoted me general auditor
.

How long did it take you to become general auditor?

A: It was less than two years. I don’t want to brag about these things, but I ended up bossing the man who interviewed me. The man they brought in to block me was sent to Houston. Luckily, I was doing very well. We were at the Bookshop House on Broad Street then. My career was blossoming.

I wrote another audit report, Financial Management and the Treasury Activities. I think Ibrahim Babangida was in power then. Structural Adjustment Programme, SAP, was on then and things were very difficult. I wrote and explained what we should do to strenghten the financial base and treasury activities of the company. It was a 28-page report. Akinyelure is still alive to attest to what I am saying.

They brought in another Managing Director, called Mr. Bob Parker. Parker arrived Nigeria to replace Erickson. Parker walked into my office and said: ‘Bola, Mr. Auditor, I am not here to fight you, but to work. Please let me know whatever you find about the corporation.’

The most significant part of that episode was the 28-page report of the financial situation, the weaknesses and what I believed should be done. They looked at the report and there was another earthquake. For one week, they were going back and forth. The treasury people and the treasurer and everyone else that mattered called me to the boardroom. They said they had looked at the audit report and the recommendations therein, and that they could not find anyone else within the establishment to implement the report except me. They said they were moving me from auditor to the post of treasurer, so that I could implement the report. They said they could not but accept the recommendations.

I asked for 48 hours to review the report and get back to them. I went to Bob Parker and Akinyelure, and I asked that I should be given a free hand to implement whatever I felt would be right with the corporation’s personnel and audit. They granted my request. They sent in a corporate auditor from London, who looked at the report and encouraged me to implement it in my new capacity as the treasurer. I started work on the report and sacked everybody in the Treasury department, except the stenographer. I brought in new hands, from the audit department – people who had worked with me. I brought in a brilliant guy called Adigun from Columbia University and others I felt I could work with.

That was how I started running the treasury of Mobil, which then was located at the CMS Bookshop House on Broad Street. The Bookshop House was degenerating and was no longer suitable for our operations. So, Akinyelure and I collaborated to do financial redeployment for the purpose of having a new office complex. I began work on the financial restructuring in Mobil, so as to accommodate the new challenges of SAP. There was a BCCI (Bank of Credit, Commerce and Industry) then – the bank that went under – and I was the only treasurer that didn’t lose money. I was a whiz-kid and I am proud of that.

Mobil usually depended on rent, but I was determined that Mobil must have an asset fixed in Nigeria. And that was the beginning of the revolution of real estate in Lagos. Capital Merchant Bank was there then. I retooled the Mobil balance sheet, working with Akinyelure, who was a good guy to work with – he is accommodating and he understands the financials. Mobil didn’t want to sink so much money into it and we had to put our creativity into what I was doing. Ahmed Abubakar was the permanent secretary in the Federal Ministry of Finance. We were so much together to ensure that the present Mobil House was built. Gbolahan Mudashiru was the governor [of Lagos State] then. He gave us the approval. It was like using a pair of pliers to remove your own tooth to get the NNPC to go along with us.

The interesting thing about the project was that devaluation was coming and it was going to affect the budget for the building. We took the bill of quantities and gave the best financial projection that was possible, pre-purchased all the items that were needed to build. Nearly 40 per cent of that building was financed when the exchange rate was one Naira to one Dollar. We purchased additional materials, including steel and cement. Whatever I tell you was in the bill of quantities. It started at N4 to $1, if you looked at foreign exchange then. It would not have been possible. Then, at the next fortnightly bidding, the exchange rate shot up to N16 to $1 and that could have adversely affected the project. In fact, if we did not pre-purchase the building materials, it would not have been possible. The NNPC building got stagnated. We finished the building on time without as much as two per cent variation, and that was how we got so much credit for financial engineering.


Since you were having a good time in Mobil, why did you leave all that to join politics?

It was when I was arranging these finances. There were a lot of things that I don’t need to talk about now that got me in contact with Ahmadu Abubakar and Ibrahim Babangida. Such things got my name around socially. Then, my cousin, Alhaji Kola Oseni, and Dapo Sarumi, who was US-trained, told me they wanted to contest for governorship. They had started their politics, but I didn’t participate. I was only raising funds for them. They said they wanted quality service delivery for Lagos State. I saw the Lagos State governorship as a department that needed a good manager. We were looking at civilisation, quality control. If you went to some housing estates then, they were like this, like that. There must be good quality, standard. And the person who must fix these things must be civilised

FreeStuffsNG:


This is the second demographic/ developmental data I am reading today where the SE is having no representation in the top states because of their low population numbers which makes me to doubt the imagined official population of the SE. Official population of Igbo in SE is inflated and needs to be thoroughly and scientifically investigated.

All these data, land mass and satelite images are pointers that the SE population may have been inflated.

Igbo are actually far smaller in population than the anogue census data estimate.

These low numbers are not coincidental and are data obtained with better data capture tools unlike in the past.

Is this the reality the politicians know in the political turf that Igbo do not have a high population which made the leading parties not to take their flagbearers and running mates from the SE?

All data from SE, even international data on SE, are conflating into low population of Igbo.

The whole population of Igbo in the 5 Igbo SE states may not even be more populous than Oyo state or Kaduna or Katsina with dorminant monoethnic groups yet the SE has 5 states and LGAs more than each of those states! Should this not be investigated just to be sure that funds are actually reaching real citizens and not ghost citizens.

Is there another tribe now displacing Igbo as the 3rd most populous or the linguistic spread of Igbo language responsible for the masking of the reality of low Igbo population is now being eliminated with better data capture technology tools ?

Here is a link to the recent data from JAMB and the tertiary institutions where Igbo dominate are few and not even in the top 4 for universities or among top 8 for polytechnics or top 10 for colleges of education.
https://utmeofficial.com.ng/jamb/jamb-registration-statistics-2020-2021-by-course-universities-polytechnics-nce-and-state-of-origin/

And here is another link showing same low numbers of Igbo. As a matter of fact, only Imo state appeared among the top 10 states at the 3rd position behind Oyo and Osun.
https://utmeofficial.org.ng/school-news/2021-utme-jamb-application-statistics-by-state-of-origin-released/
Here the whole SE is about the sum for only Osun, Oyo and Ogun.

Are the Igbo a minority group inflated to a majority group or a majority group now a minority?

Some just have an excellent knack for pertinent information necessary for discussions, debates or references.

Tinubu certificate brouhaha ~ Woye :

You will recall that there was a petition dated Aug 12.1999 about the educational background and age of Asiwaju Tinubu written by Alhaji Jammed Seriki & Dr. Waliu Balogun - smith.

They accused him of lying about his age in his nominating form to INEC.

2: Gani Fawenhinmi went to court to seek for prosecution of Tinubu up to Supreme Court. Supreme Court ruled that Tinubu CANNOT be Prosecuted by the police for alleged certificate forgery. That only Lagos State House of Assembly can investigate him.

3: Then, June 4, 2013 one Dr. Dominic Adegbola asked Federal High Court Justice Saliu Saidu to re - open the suit filed by Gani Fawehinmi in 1999. The suit was to compel IG of Police to commence investigation into alleged forgery. The court dismissed the case . The court said that the applicant went to sleep since 2007 when the “toga of immunity “ could no longer shield Tinubu and suddenly woke up when the matter is statute barred . So as at today , court has exonerated Tinubu of any forgery even after leaving office . So what is the issue now as a result of Supreme Court decision, Lagos State House of Assembly under Speaker Mamora (present Minister of State) opened the probe via a motion moved by Hon. Tajudeen Agoro & a 5 man ad - hoc committee was set up with Hon Omowoare as chairman .

4. The committee sent out letter of invitation to the 2 gentlemen that wrote the petition. Those guys REFUSED to substantiate their petition. The committee even went to the addresses those guys provided and they could not find them . However , Tinubu was invited to answer

5: Tinubu came with Femi Falana who wasn’t Anthony bus stop SAN then . Tinubu admitted to the needless errors being pointed out by the petitioners and that it was Senator Tokunbo Akifuyomi that did the documentation. Then he submitted a copy of SDP Senatorial candidate form dated June 1, 1992 in which he used to contest the 1992 Senatorial election and he won as a Senator representing Lagos West. That form he personally filled . Tinubu attached the certificate of Richard Daley College and Chicago State University.

6: Qualification was B.Sc Accounting. Now, INEC in 1999 committed an error in INEC form CF01 that bore a wrong date of 28th Dec 1999 instead of 28th December, 1998. Commissioner of Oath detected the error.

7: Tinubu could not complete his secondary school because of poverty. He decided to leave for USA to find food. He did a lot of menial jobs & suffered like every young man without a rich parents or uncle or RICH TWITTER boys and girls. After 5 years,he enrolled at Richard Daley college in Chicago. Note, Tinubu did not complete his education in secondary school, therefore the college offered him basic , remedial and academic classes like IJMB in local Nigeria. He passed his remedial courses and he was offered admission to Chicago State University. He obtained Bachelor of Science in Business & Administration and his major was in Accounting. He had no scholarship like me that I enjoyed in my undergraduate and post graduate too . He was in Chicago State University from August 1977 to June 1979 . He worked with Deloitte Haskins

8. Tinubu was an employee of Mobil oil of Nigeria between Dec 1,1983 when Buhari, Babaginda, Dasuki,David Mark were preparing to overthrow Shehu Shagari & he used to pass though Dodan Barracks not knowing that fate would link him with Buhari later. He was there till May 17, 1992

9: Senator Afinkuyomi appeared with Prof Itse Sagay SAN too that he was heading the unit of Gov ‘s campaign responsible for processing of form & because of the rush & tense circumstances in Alliance for Democracy as per Guber primaries caused the confusion.

10: Chief Gani Fawenhimi also appeared to give testimony. That the committee should determine if the law has been breached. Then Femi Falana appeared on behalf of Tinubu that no evidence has been led to show that Tinubu presented forged certificate to INEC. Chicago University

11: Chicago state University has confirmed that Tinubu was a student of their University and he secured admission through Richard Daley College . The committee later sought legal advice from Chief Fred Agbaje a honest lawyer, Olisa Agbakoba, Deacon Dele Adeshina NBA chair, ikeja, finally the committee finding on the allegation of forgery was that “WE HAVE NO EVIDENCE that any forged document was presented to INEC” the only certificate presented to INEC was a transcript of CHICAGO STATE UNIVERSITY.

The legal provision bars political appointees at any level from being a voting delegate or be voted for primary election purposes.




|SOURCE|

"In a judgment on Friday, a seven-member panel of the apex court, headed by Justice Musa Dattijo the Mohammed, was unanimous in holding that Buhari, having participated in the making of the law by assenting to it, could not turn around to fault its provisions."

The part of the quote I've put in bold and italics characters has been my line of reasoning and commentary on this matter all along.

It was also what made me postulate that President Buhari would never sign off on the further amendment of the same already signed law praying that the inadvertently(?) omitted statutory delegates be added to Section 8 (4.)

President Buhari has no others but himself — along with his pedestrian and insincere lieutenants, including AGF Malami — for the bad bruises his government has suffered as a result of this judgment and some other judicial pronouncements here at home and abroad.

Overall, the judgment is a very solid and sound one!

Kudos to the SC for towing this line of judgment.

Prinxzona10:


You responded maturely,so I will give you a feedback.
Point of correction,I never said that Yoruba or Tinubu are the problem of Igbos because you guys are good in twisting some facts to fit your dubious narratives..what I said was that*SOME YORUBAS*derive joy in painting Igbos black in the eyes of Nigerians especially when they are up to sinister motives eg this presidential election.
When I said that you guys have made this presidential election looks tribal,some people will think that i've been on a demi sea buh look at your assumption of placing Tinubu with Yoruba just to pass out your tribal sentiment .
I thought you guys always said that Nigeria is *ONE* so why the tribal inclinations towards the candidates huh?(let you guys continue deceiving yourselves ).
Though every tribe got their own hateful souls buh if you doubt my analytical view on Igbos and Yorubas level of tolerance and hatred,
Replace Tinubu with Yemi Osibanjo and replace Peter Obi with Orji Uzor Kalu,then you will know if truly Igbos hate Yoruba's or not..(because 90% of Igbos will go for Osibanjo honestly)...
Igbos have problems yeap buh they also see beyond you guys in terms of politics hence the reason that accepted Obasanjo,a Yoruba man from South West,accepted Yar'Adua a Fulani man from North West,accepted Goodluck an Ijaw man from South South buh rejected Buhari,another Fulani man from North West and you can see the reason of his rejection because Igbos sees bad market from afar and believe me,Tinubu is a bad market while Osibanjo is a good market..(They accepted Atiku,a Fulani man from North East though he didn't win)...The Igbos are now rejecting Tinubu,though his rejections started fully immediately after they sidelined Yemi Osibanjo...( Osibanjo's ticket denial and emergence of Peter Obi from LP triggered the hostility towards Tinubu and it's justifiable because you cannot push out your best and bring out your worst and you expect any reasonable and sensible person to swallow that just because you're demi god to some people,it doesn't work that way bro)...
So bro,Majority of sensible Igbos and reasonable Yorubas don't dwell on the hate here because it's fueled by many of Tinubu's urchins...
Lastly,every wrong choice have a repercussions of which Buhari is giving Nigerians gbas gbos buh if they want it to continue,let them vote Buhari pro max...the woto woto of Buhari's presidency will be a child's play....
Finally,don't always assume that anybody that refuse to support Tinubu is an Igbo,an Ipob or that the person hate Yoruba because Tinubu don't represent Yoruba buh his greedy and selfish interest...people that represents Yoruba are somebody like Pa Ayo Adebanjo etc...
Lets apply wisdom for the betterment of our future and our generations..
I rest my case,Gracias!!!!

Whoa, you're irredeemable pro Igbo who thinks he/she has the right to think for other ethnic nationalities, e.g., "hostility towards Tinubu and it's justifiable because you cannot push out your best and bring out your worst and you expect any reasonable and sensible person to swallow that just because you're demi god to some people," and other very insensitive, offensive, and irresponsibble things and inuendoes you've written up here.

Simply put, you're a product of a very disrespective Igbo echo chamber full of drivel. I now regret that I've exchanged posts with you at all, sorry.

I agree substantially with this submission but I'm dead sure that the South West will most definitely give Tinubu a solid bloc vote. The issue of Muslim Muslim ticket is just a propaganda. Tinubu made it clear in Ekiti that the Vice President position belongs to the north east and a christian.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.vanguardngr.com/2022/06/apc-vp-slot-tinubu-condemns-rumour-on-muslim-muslim-ticket/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwiauLXnrcP4AhUMx4UKHdG1ClkQFnoECAMQAQ&usg=AOvVaw0yot59fkswAvJeQ5_2Hsaw

Yes anybody that wins the north central with good margin will most likely win the presidential election.

I'm sorry, but I'll take this quote ascribed to Tinubu by the Vauguard newspaper, with a pinch of salt.

If a link can be provided of any other credible publication during the same period, then I may begin to see it differently. Such a quote is too significant for it not to have gone viral on major publications.

Besides, I've seen the exact quote claim already by a poster (who was pushing for a not-so-popular NE Christian to be Tinubu's running mate) on this forum just a couple of days after Tinubu was elected APC's prez candidate.

In that particular case, it was the debunking made by the Tinubu media group before their primaries, that was being propagated as new, well after the primaries, using an earlier such quote in Vanguard but wrapped as new via a google search featuring a rather obscure website.

Having said all that however, there's still the possibility I may be off the mark myself. So, we shall see.

I dislike Nigerian politicians because they're all wicked and selfish buh the truth is that I supported Obasanjo,Yar'adua,Jonathan (when I was still there in Nigeria) and Atiku (when i wasn't there in Nigeria via online)because Nigerian were always faced with two worst choices buh among them,I so much Loved Yar'adua because he was and still the best....
That cunning impression that Igbos have made the process a tribal project is just a silly lies concorted by Tinubu's supporters...
If Igbos keep mute on Peter Obi's presidency,you guys would lament that they don't love themselves and if they come out to support him,the same you guys would still lament that they're making it a tribal thing..
See guy,if you hate somebody,the hatred is there already and it will take a very special grace to take the hate off you because there's nothing Igbos can do to please many of you people.
It's tribal election now because Igbo man is in the picture because Tinubu got nothing to campaign with except his normal ethnic,tribal and religious card only...
Let me ask you,if Tinubu is contesting with only Atiku,would he be playing all these ethic,religious and tribal card huh because he knew he will fail at it even before the election start proper....( I wouldn't blame those they said that the hatred from some Yorubas for Igbos is what's keeping Nigeria together because the attack on Peter Obi is mindboggling even when he's not in the main opposition party and 90% of the attacks are from Yoruba people because Atiku is not their problem again,so what are you going to call this one,*PURE LOVE* I guess huh?.when other tribe do something is normal buh when Igbos does the same,you guys read tribal meaning into it and Tinubu that you guys are supporting,are you supporting him because he's credible,competent,healthy and fit enough to be president if not for your own tribal sentiment huh? I've been reading some comments here for many years if you don't know buh the greatest supporter of Peter Obi is Edo people and I wish many Nigerians will emulate Edo ways of doing Politics and not been blinded by hatred niii)
Tinubu's pattern is to view Peter Obi as an Ipob or Igbo agenda or even a christian project of which his urchins have been displaying here since and I ask you,to which end?
Finally,reasonable and responsible Yorubas ain't buying into that your tribal and ethnic card because their eyes have opened and they know Tinubu is a bad market..if Yemi Osibanjo is in the game,it could've make more sense buh due to evil and greed,he was sidelined...
Though nothing concerns me with the Nigerian politics buh Peter Obi remains the best among them and he may likely win if paired with a strong Northern vice candidate... I rest my case.Gracias!!!!

Mehn, based on the totality of your writings I've seen so far, you appear to believe, with every fiber in your body, that the Yoruba have an unjustified hatred for the Igbo? And that the problem of the Igbo and the rest of the nation, is the Yoruba, Tinubu, and the like?

If so, or even a quarter so, then I'll tell you this: If you haven't realized that most Yoruba also think of most Igbo in equal measure as you're indicating the Igbo think of the Yoruba, then your analyses and raw sentiments — especially in the realms of politics and political power — will remain unrealistic and always fail.

i know you support obi but try to realistic with urself the only region certain for obi is SS&SE obi will not win a single state in the north and you must be joking about southwest, you think southwest will vote obi after you make the election tribal, i can sure you tinubu is getting nothing less than 70% vote in southwest, i will urge you to go check voting pattern whenever southwest has a major candidate on the ballot.
the vote obi will get in southwest is from igbo living there and few yorubas, tinibu is getting block vote, the election is now tribal, any good observing mind will know this movement is tribal

Your head is very correct. A lot of people are sleeping on the emerging scenario that the campaigns — and by projection, the elections proper — are increasingly being fought along tribal lines, for the most part.

IMHO, this trend will become even more so as the elections approach, particularly in the southern parts of the country, which hitherto had been dubbed "more enlightened," at least literally.

Good luck to all sides.

Hmm! Nigeria will get there someday,if not for the corrupt induced delegates system that pruduced the candidacy of Atiku and Tinubu in both pdp and apc, it would have been Osinbajo vs Obi, in the real sense of it. These evil people prevented Osinbajo that is very popular with the masses to present himself to be voted for, and he does not have the luxury of Obi to decamp to another party or stand as an independent candidate because he is the vice president, but one thing is sure, his movement will continue to move until the country is liberated. Moreover, some of the people castigating him just for this temporary setback, I can assure them their candidate will not have the opportunity to live in the aguda house talkless of aso rock because they will now need to face the real voters, they can only bribe few voters the majority will reject them. Who laugh last always have the best laugh.

LoL... So, his character has finally managed to recover from the disgrace and uncommon humiliation he/she suffered on account of all the blatant lies, innuendoes, names dropping, plagiarism, and childish political analyses he/she was posting on here leading up to the crushing defeat and humiliation of his/her God Osinbajo at the APC presidential primaries earlier this month? And the character still has this shamelessness to post this way? Chai.

To this kind of character, the blame is almost always that of the other side, instead of that of the self-annihilating echo chamber that grows his/her type!

Anyways, na hin get hin pen sha o, so make hin dey practice hin shenanigans dey go. After all, this site continues to rake in profits from the activities on here as pushed by all sides that employ negative or positive energies, or anything in-between.

Politics / Re: Bayo Onanuga: PDP Is Afraid Of Muslim-Muslim Ticket by duwdu: 6:06pm On Jun 16, 2022
White007:
Asiwaju is a Muslim and ordinarily represents the Muslim divide. Why then the insistence that yet another Muslim would have to pair with him? The reason is simple: Asiwaju does not represent the Muslim North. Put differently, the core Northern Muslims do not believe that Asiwaju represents them from a religious perspective.

The current APC federal government has played up religion as a high negative energy to divide the country like never before. That is why the Christian divide will not ignore the Muslim-Muslim ticket this time around even though a block in the APC North led by El Rufai strongly believes  it does not matter.

Furthermore, the Muslim-Muslim ticket kite they fly also suggests that the APC Christian political leaders of the North have no electoral value. It is really surprising that among the APC Northern Christian leaders, none is considered qualified enough to pair up with Tinubu to respect and maintain the delicate religious balance in the country. To the likes of El Rufai, men like Boss Mustafa, a fine gentleman with an unblemished record and currently Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) is unqualified.

It is a form of religious intolerance to even contemplate a Muslim-Muslim ticket in the first place.

To me, it's even more irresponsible for the PDP to claim no southerner — Christian or Muslim — can win as a presidential candidate of their party! Which was why they opted to go with the northern Fulani Atiku who could potentially rule for another eight years immediately following on the eight years of his compatriot Buhari, who is also a northern Fulani.

If the PDP had been reasonable to have allowed the presidency to rotate to the south as it should this next time, the issue of a potential Muslim-Muslim ticket on the platform of the APC, would probably not have arisen.

So to me, this whole shenanigans was orchestrated by the PDP, because it was concerned it would not win the next presidential election by fielding any candidate from the south. So, no fair-minded person should now attempt to tie the hands of the APC in choosing any combination of personalities from the two main regions it believes, like the PDP does, would help it win the same election.

The APC already stands on the nationally and morally high — but very risky vote-numbers — grounds of trying to help institutionalize the noble principle of a predictable and regular rotation of national political power between the north and south.

It will thus be poor thinking and great injustice to expect the APC to now add to it's own noble burden the responsibility the PDP is running away from, and not give itself (APC) a fair chance to win.
