|Politics / Re: Osun 2018 Governorship Election Results: INEC Official Announcement Updates by shosky1794: 5:25am|
APC will eventually lose this. For PDP to even win in Ilesa shows how the final results will look like. This should tell Tinubu and co something. You've got to pay your workers.

|Politics / Re: Adekunle Akinlade Emerges APC Ogun Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 11:46pm On Sep 08|
My point exactly. The Ijebus actually want a core Ijebu person and not somebody from Remo so it's a sort of dilemma for them. The margin of the last election was not close o. Check the results again. The Egbas will not vote for Ladi and I'm he won't get up to 15% in Ogun West. As for GNI, he won't even get up to half of what he got from Ogun West in the last election. The reason is because the people of Ogun West now believe that their best chance to be governor is through an APC candidate from their zone so they will vote massively for that AAA guy.
|Politics / Re: Adekunle Akinlade Emerges APC Ogun Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 11:36pm On Sep 08|
The Ijebus have only the PDP platform and Ladi already has the PDP ticket in his pocket. So tell how the Ijebus will realise their aspirations of presenting a candidate. Also without the votes of Ogun Central, your candidate can't win the election. Ogun Central will go in any direction Amosun points. Abeokuta South, Ado-Odo/Ota and Ifo are three LGAs with highest number of votes in Ogun State and they will definitely go to APC. Forget GNI, he's just wasting his time and money like he has always done.

What's this again now. My mother was a Muslim but she married my dad who was a Christian. My uncle too married a Muslim wife. I can count so many Muslim ladies who married Christians as husbands. So what's it you are Christian. This is South West nobody cares the name you call your God as long you have the fear of God in you, you are Omoluabi. It was in 2015 that this issue of religious discrimination started coming up in the west all thanks to PDP. The more reason PDP will find it hard to rule any South Western state again.
|Politics / Re: Adekunle Akinlade Emerges APC Ogun Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 10:10pm On Sep 08|
I bet you can use the votes of only the Ijebus to become governor of the state then. No candidate of yours will win in Ogun central so tell me how you want to win the election. Who's the candidate you want to even present? Ladi(who's even Remo o)? That one won't get up to 20 percent in Ogun central and I doubt he will get up to 10 percent in Ogun West. Just accept your fate and wait till 2027.

That's why I said I will leave my reservations on the issues of salary till after the election so people won't think one encourages the non-payment of salaries. I agree with you on the bloated civil service but you very well know that everything is politics in this part of the world. My take on our various states civil services is that instead of laying them off why not pay some of them off and reduce the size of your workforce. It has been proven in Osun that you can work as a governor without commissioners and advisers for a year or so. Use the salaries and allowances of these commissioners and advisers(and their advisers) to pay off some your civil servants. That way they have something to set themselves up and you reduce the size of your civil service considerably.
|Politics / Re: Why PDP Can't Win Osun Governorship Election. PICS. by shosky1794: 7:48pm On Sep 08|
Well since you have lived in Osun for a long time, compare his performance to the performance of the governors before him, Akande and Oyinlola. I have my reservations regarding this issue of non-payment of salaries but I will leave that discussions till after the election no matter who's voted in. Let's just keep being civil and objective in our discussions here. We don't need to abuse one another to make our point. God bless you bro.
|Politics / Re: Why PDP Can't Win Osun Governorship Election. PICS. by shosky1794: 7:42pm On Sep 08|
Good points but in Nigeria politics and once it comes elections down, performance of an administration is always relative. Look at what they are saying about Umahi. He has done really well from what I read and the pictures I've seen. But most of the pictures we've seen are majorly roads and this is because the governors before him did nothing about those roads or other infrastructure. The reason some people from Osun will praise Aregbe is because they've not seen those kind of roads he built in their state before. The day we start measuring performance of any administration by the quality improvement they made in education and human capital development is when our politicians will start sitting tight. Tinubu with all his faults will always be one of the best governors in the South West. It was not about roads for him. He did well in the area education, health and the environment. Infact I rate higher than Ambode but people will argue this. We can debate this issue of non-payment of salaries forever. I have my reservations but I will leave till after the election.
|Politics / Re: Adekunle Akinlade Emerges APC Ogun Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 7:21pm On Sep 08|
You've shown that you know Ogun State politics even more than those who claim to come from the state. I've discussed the chances of the APC candidate on the other thread so I won't be saying much. Let me just correct one or two things. GNI won't get more votes than AAA in Ogun West(Not Yewa o). He's not really popular in Ado-odo/Ota and has always performed there very poorly. The margin between him and Amosun in 2015 was huge and it was worse in 2011. Remember he was in PDP in 2015 but in an unpopular PPN in 2011. Same scenario will play out in 2019. His ADC is not that popular in the state and Obasanjo will be neutral in the governoship election. Remember also that Ado-Odo/Ota is the 2nd most populated lga in Ogun State and the votes from there alone cover almost 2 LGAs in Ogun West. I know other lgas in Ogun West that GNI will not win and the margins in the ones he will win will be very few, not even upto 1000. PDP will pick Adebutu and he won't get the support of Ogun Central. His performance there will be very poor I can tell you. Now to Ogun East, Adebutu is from Iperu(Remo) but the Ijebus want a core Ijebu man and not somebody from Remo. Because of this he won't get their absolute support. The performance(whether 1st or 2nd term) of Amosun in Sagamu will come in good for APC. It's really looking good for the APC candidate.
|Politics / Re: Why PDP Can't Win Osun Governorship Election. PICS. by shosky1794: 6:16pm On Sep 08|
On a particular thread, you said in Ogun State and that the person quoted was wrong even when the guy was saying the truth. Just like I said on that thread performance is relative. You have to compare the performance of a governor or a party to the previous one. Another angle is to compare the performance of a governor to other governors in the the country. Most of the people supporting the PDP candiate here are from the Eastern part of the country. Why don't they compare the performance of Aregbe to governors from the East who spent 8 years. Abia, Ebonyi(before Umahi), Imo. Also compare the performance of Aregbe to the governors before him in the state, Akande, Oyinlola(who spent 5-6yrs). We all went to school so let's argue with facts, figures like we were taught. Please try and be civil when making your points next time. Thanks

So you can call someone a stranger in Osun but you were part of those arguing on another thread that Tinubu did not start and complete any project in Lagos as if you know Lagos that well. On another thread you were talking about the Governorship aspirations of Yayi in Ogun state even when the guy had dropped out of the race. At a point, you praised Aregbe to high heavens. I guess this was when your pay-masters were having their way in APC. You need to be stable in your reasoning. That's the only way people will take you seriously. You've been harping on the same copied write-up for people not to vote for Aregbe's candidate. But I can bet you if that write-up is what the opposition is campaigning with in the state then they are not ready at all.

They are comparing Marwa administration to Tinubu's. In the area of health alone, he's second to none. He gave Alimosho lga its first general hospital. Igando road was constructed by Julius Berger and the is still standing till date. Mushin-Ojuelegba road. Many roads in Lagos were being constructed by Julius Berger when no other state could dare employ the services of Julius Berger. Tinubu was the best governor in Nigeria during his time. Somebody should dispute this with facts

I can actually tell those 90s kids the many projects Tinubu started and completed in Lagos but they should first tell me 3 projects Marwa completed in Lagos.

Since you know so much Marwa administration, can you tell us 3 - 4 projects Marwa started and completed in Lagos?

It's either you don't know Lagos at all or you were born in the 90s. So many Federal projects that Tinubu did. Lagos environment was in a mess when Tinubu came in but he revamp the environment. Take Alimosho LGA for example, so many roads that were in serious disrepair, he fixed them using Julius Berger. Mushin, Surulere, Ikeja, just name them. The template that Fashola followed was laid down by Tinubu. Isheri-Igando-Lasu road. Most people who comment on Nairaland were not even of voting age(18) when Tinubu left in 2007. If he didn't perform, he won't have won in 2003 when Obasanjo threw everything at him.

What were his performances in ado-odo/ota in 2011 and 2015. Abeokuta South, Ifo and Ado-Odo are where the highest votes in Ogun and GNI has always performed poorly in these 3 LGAs. The margins are always very high. So tell me what you know about Ado-Odo that's different from this
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 2:48pm On Sep 07|
9 local govts out of 20 local govts and he still didn't win the election and he had the influence of Buruji in Ogun East in 2015, still came third behind APC(ACN) and PDP in 2011. Also, Osoba is back in APC so there won't be SDP splitting votes for APC. You just confirm now that he's not popular in Ado-odo/ota, the 2nd biggest lga in Ogun Sate in terms of population. I'm not supporting any candidate myself I am just telling what's on ground. I live in both Lagos and Ogun state. I go to Ota every week and I am Ogun West(Yewa North) so I know what I am saying.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 12:59pm On Sep 07|
You contested on the platform of PPN while the one you were trying to ride on his popularity and power remained in PDP and did not even campaigned for you publicly. Still you had the federal government checkmating your every move. Think about it bro, a sitting governor who could not campaign for and with his endorsed candidate publicly. Even Tinubu would find it hard to pull this off
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 12:29pm On Sep 07|
It's obvious you know little about 2011 election. Daniel wanted GNI as PDP candidate but Obasanjo didn't allow him. Olurin was picked and GNI had to move to PPN while Daniel stayed in PDP was forced to work for Olurin by Obasanjo with the threat of EFCC. You guys should get good history lessons before coming online to argue about what you know little about.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 11:32am On Sep 07|
GNI more popular across the state? That should be a great joke and there's no way it's not going to be about party except they take the elections to Ghana or something. The best GNI will get is to come third as he has always done.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 11:28am On Sep 07|
His performance in Ogun West is relative. Compare his performance to any of the other governors before him apart from 'Bisi Onabanjo. I'm old enough to know that he has outperformed all these other governors in the district.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 7:43am On Sep 07|
They know this is their best chance for one of their own to be Governor. It's the first time a sitting Governor will be anointing a candidate from the district and he has no much competition from the district really. GNI won't get more than 30 percent in the Ogun West because he's not popular in Ado-Odo/Ota even in Ilaro and it's environs. Even if all the oppositions come out with one candidate, it will still be near impossible for them to defeat the APC candidate.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 7:26am On Sep 07|
None of these candidates has a chance against him. The ones who won't support him in the South West would rather sit at home than vote any other candidate. Even in the East there would be a lot of voters apathy which is to Buhari's advantage. Which ever way, the man is winning the 2019 presidential election.

|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 11:20pm On Sep 06|
Daniel does not have any influence in Ogun East not even in Sagamu where he claimed to come from. PDP can NEVER win the Governorship election in Ogun State in 2019. They will be presenting Ladi Adebutu from Remo and he won't be getting more than Remo votes(not even the whole of Ogun East). As for GNI, the guy is only popular in Yewa North, Imeko-Afon, Ipokia and not the whole of Ogun West. With bloc votes in Ogun Central, the performance of Amosun in Ado-Odo/Ota which is the biggest local govt in Ogun West in terms of votes, there's no way APC will lose that election
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 10:34pm On Sep 06|
I am from Ogun State, Ogun West Senatorial district, Yewa North LGA so I know about my state and the politics that go on there. What state are you from and do you even know what goes on in your state. It will be good if you can focus on your state. You don't know anything about Ogun State and you keep abusing people who try to correct you. Must you comment on what you don't know. Read and learn from people who know so you can be well-equipped with correct information next time.

|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 9:15pm On Sep 06|
He will surely win. The opposition against him is already divided and Amosun influence will surely come in handy for him. Amosun is the best performing Governor in Ogun State since Bisi Onabanjo. His achievements dwarf those of PDP and he did so much in Ogun West relatively. The guy is the governor already
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 6:22pm On Sep 06|
From his comments, he sure knows a lot about Ogun State politics even more than those who claim to live in the state.
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 6:09pm On Sep 06|
So many people who commented don't know jack about Ogun State politics. There's no way APC will lose the Governorship election in 2019
|Politics / Re: Abdulkabir Adekunle Akinlade: Amosun’s Preferred Ogun APC Governorship Candidate by shosky1794: 6:06pm On Sep 06|
Seriously I don't what's he's trying to point out. Christians ruled 4 different times consecutively before Amosun Came in. Onabanjo, Osoba(2 different times) and Daniel who was able to complete 2 terms. People in Ogun State don't care about this religious angles. My dad is from a Christian family while my mum is from a Muslim family and it's like this in many families from Ogun State and the entire South West
