|Politics / The Myths Of Osinbajo Aspirations by ElderlyPerson(m): 3:34pm On Apr 19|
It is no more a gainsay that the Presidential election race has witnessed an intense camaraderie in the last couple of weeks.
Popular news had it initially at the early part of the year of Bola Ahmed Tinubu an elder stateman of APC declaration of aspiration to fulfill his life-long ambition of becoming the president of the FRN. In a bid to as well make known of their intents to fit in for the herculean task. The VP, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, the Minister of Rail and Transport, Rotimi Amaechi, and most recently the minister of Labour in person of Prof Chris Ngige has as well declared their interest in the climax seat of power.
However, as expected, some loyalists of the most renowned candidate under the platform of APC had taken to social medias to libel, slander and blackmail the Vice President accusing him of betrayal and all sort of immoral prejudices.
In light of this, I will like to refute some of the myths as fondly constituted by these set of bigots:
1. OSINBAJO IS A BETRAYER [/color]
I need to first reiterate that, the idea of Osinbajo being conceived and rumoured as a betrayer is completely nothing but an emotional blackmail.
Tinubu, for years had been known for staunch Godfatherism. With numerous testaments to this. Among which are his breach of Agreement with ex Governor of Osun and current Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, such that the hierarchy of gubernatorial seat after Aregbesola in Osun State was supposedly to be Alh Moshood Adeoti. But due to Tinubu's domineering attitude to the trend of things, he preferred Oyetola, a relation, to the seat thereby pocketing the life-long ambition of people who had crossed their Ts and dotted their Is for the post.
Not only, Gov Akeredolu was said to have fallen apart with this political juggernaut during his aspiration towards becoming the next governor of Ondo State. A move, owing to the fact Tinubu was in support of a candidate he felt would be a simp to his authority.
Lagos State, former governor, Ambode also was one of the pawn in the chess of Tinubu's radical show of politics amongst many others.
What do we then say to these people whom Tinubu had outsmarted them, due to their non-adherence to his bidding, or his conception. They might not do his bidding.
To say Osinbajo is a betrayer, begs the question does Tinubu uphold his moral standards in any wise ?
2. OSINBAJO'S FAILED AS THE CUSTODIAN OF ECONOMY[color=#006600]
As much as we cannot shy away from the fact, the current administration had failed all and sundry who entrusted them with the mandate. It is not a yardstick to label the VP an outright failure for the said economy for the following reasons:
1. Economy is controlled by quite a number of factors. Most of which the VP have little or no say. For an instance, closure of borders wrecked the Economy status of the country greatly, an implementation the VP have little or no control over.
2. Not only, some economical stringent policies such as high taxation, banning of cryptocurrencies, COVID-19. Among many other factors largely play a crucial role in deciding the Economic progression or retrogression.
As a matter of fact, the ban on Cryptocurrency was promptly condemned by the VP as a technocrat who understands the implication of such move on the economy status of the country
3. OSINBAJO'S RCCGIFICATION AGENDA
Another myth that has been going round the media recently is that of controversial journalist Farouq Kperogi's allegation of the VP's agenda to rccgify Nigeria. Based on his said, underground research and inquiries.
As much as I strongly condemn bigotry at any instance and from any perspective. It's safe to say the publication of the said journalist is quite controversial, and of ulterior motives. You will recall, such release was debunked earnestly by the VP's office with a video release of Muslim from various part of the country and their congenial post in the cabinet.
My bone of contention to the said RCCG members is that; was the said journalist able to give a genuine backup to his claim of VP's cabinet Christian members being RCCG members? If he was? To what extent or degree. All these are questions that needs to be answered beyond gainsays and hearsays. Lest we fall for the gimmicks of people of the bourdillion villa.
In conclusion, Facts they say speaks for itself. The numerous achievements of the VP in his acting days as the President speaks for how much of a man of Timber and Calibre he is.

|Politics / Re: Osinbajo Never Informed Us Before Relocating Membership To Ogun State –Lagos APC by ElderlyPerson(m): 9:33am On Apr 13|
The evil men do lives with them.
When Tinubu has been pioneering crooked and manipulated candidates to power. It was never a betrayal in your wise.
Shall we talk of when it was crystal clear Moshood Adeoti was the next in agenda to power but he chose to put his kinsman in person of Oyetola to power.
What do we say of Ondo state when he worked his last breath to overpower Akeredolu from emerging due to his self-centered candidates
The Ambode he sidelined for reasons best known to him for his petty boy.
Among many others.
Now the chants is Osinbajo is a betrayal. Osinbajo this. Osinbajo that.
Y'all need grease to oil your rusticated brains.

|Religion / Re: Meet Nigerian Pastors Who Own Private Jets. (photos, Video) by ElderlyPerson(m): 2:25pm On Aug 23, 2020|
That Pastors own private jet is not a reason for church members being poor.
Howbeit do we explain our non-christian brothers whose clerics or religious leaders don't own private jets but still can't afford 3-square meals daily.
The reason for being poor is simply our inability to harness available opportunities and bad governance.
Since you have not paid a dime in place of worship. How much choppers have you owned talk more of a jet. #Seek wisdom and get it#

First of all Mr. Centino . I must confess this, after *Bukky Alakara* and *The Devil Wears Okrika* which I have read on this platform. *Katakata street* is the best of them all.
Also, the indepth analysis of Mr. Cosmas is too awesome, his balance between religion and godly life. Irikefe notorious life is also worthy to be notified and Agbonyinbo's deciphering nature is worthy of utmost curiosity.
in short keep the good work going man, you are a rare gem to this generation. By the way I don't know if you have published it. If yes how can I get the hardcopy please !!
|Politics / OSUN RERUN: Election Results Update In Ife South And Ife North L.G.A by ElderlyPerson(m): 3:09pm On Sep 27, 2018|
The All Progressive Congress is taking the lead as they had marginalised and sabotage franchise right of the citizens and democracy had been greatly aliened in the ongoing rerun elections courtesy of aliance with the INEC and security operatives.
|Politics / Election Result Update: Ife North L.G.A by ElderlyPerson(m): 1:56pm On Sep 27, 2018|
The electi [color=#006600][/color]on held at Ife North L.G.A Ward 6 unit004 result has just been released. The result goes thus:
APC- 300 votes
PDP- 005 votes
Now it is quite obvious the All Progressive Congress are very determined to bigot this election to their own favouritism.
All things being equal, it is likely the ruling party boycott the dividend of democracy to soothe their own mischievous and unscrupulous way.
Nevertheless, let's wait and see

|Literature / A Zoo Called A Country by ElderlyPerson(m): 9:50pm On Apr 08, 2018|
"A ZOO CALLED A COUNTRY"
I know of a country
Where disorderliness attains its climax
Dignity and Prestige they let go off
All in the name of selfishness.
I know of a country
Where agitators are tagged terrorists
Terrorists they apprehend not
Yet, unending lies they deploy to redeem their uncourteous acts
I know of a country
Where Fulani herdsmen are privileged of gallivanting in gangsterism
There, armless IPOB they consider a threat to the country
Operation Python dance today, Crocodile smile the next they use to savage the situation.
Peace of mind a long forgotten word in her dictionary
As Boko Haramists terrifies the peaceful atmosphere today
Our maidens they make means of dialogue tomorrow.
While we were still in a melancholy of the unseen Chibok girls
Not long after our Dapchi girls they got hold of again.
A country I had always thought it was
Not until they made known it was a glorified zoo
Snake now turned a minister of finance, Monkey the new C.B.N governor
A country or a Zoo ?
Where toils of hardwork counts not
Admission/Employment you get not from unrelentless efforts
Rather, connection masterminds even the slightest efforts
A Country or a Zoo ?
Where the corrupted wants to fight corruption
Where dying masses is not a concern
Rather merrying in their 50-milion power bike is what
A Country or a Zoo ?
Where the rich gets richer
Embezzlement their utmost goal
Fraud/Yahoo the only means of surviving for a common man's child
Only if I knew it was a glorified zoo
Only if I knew animals were slightly different from these ones
If and only if I were to make another choice
Then I would have opt to stay in heaven.

I sat for my p.utme on Friday and I know the agony the unfriendly and rigorous calculation made us pass through.... I do say it that if the way we read and how accurate we are makes us superior then my rank of superiority with my contemporaries cannot be questioned....
All the same, I strongly believe there is no excuse for failure... The fact that I'm having an aggregate of 66.25 doesn't make someone who had 80.1aggregate a better person than I am...
Hoping to comeback with a full force next year.
