The national leader and presidential aspirant of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu resumes consultation after APC southwest leaders meeting held in Lagos on Friday, he was also in Taraba state where he met the APC delegates. After the meeting, he attended to journalists where he answered some questions.
In his response to the question of a consensus arrangement by the party, Tinubu said he preferred a process of democracy to choose who becomes the APC flag bearer. In his words: “I want democracy; I am voting for democracy, one man, one vote.”
[/b]It is very laughable that such a statement is coming from Tinubu himself who is use to candidate imposition in Lagos state. In fact, democracy and Tinubu are like parallel lines as far as Lagos politics is concerned. This is a man who determines who gets what and when in Lagos.
Is it that he is about to receive his pound of flesh? If APC should follow a consensus pattern in the forthcoming Primary Election, nothing will happen, Tinubu will lost out because clearly, he's not the "anointed one."[b]
[/b]When he was Lagos state governor, he changed his deputies like clothes. He made futile attempts to stop the second term bid of Babatunde Raji Fashola due to a fracas they had. However, the overwhelming and visible achievements of Fashola made it impossible for him to do so.[b]
[/b]Unfortunately, he succeeded in Ambode's case. He denied his second term bid because he (Ambode) refused to grant the 'godfather's numerous demands.'[b]
[/b]If not for his Presidential ambition, his son would have been the next governor of the state. He succeeded in giving Iyaloja of Lagos to his daughter, Chief Mrs Folashade Tinubu Ojo. His wife Oluremi Tinubu has been the only one contesting for Lagos senator representing Lagos central constituency for 12 years straight.[b]
With all of this, should such a man be given moral credential to demand for level playing ground in the APC?
Law of karma is about to catch up with his self-tagged "lifelong ambition" and sane Nigerians can't wait for it to happen, to say the least. This is a man who has cut short the political career of many because of his selfish benefits and gains.
