Bola Tinubu



By Jaiyeola Ajasa/Jaiyeola Street

The worst things General Olusegun Obasanjo, did were the things he did not do, when for two terms he was President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. For that reasons and more, he should shut the hell up and wait for the wrath of Jehovah. It will come sooner than later. Insha Allah. The future of Nigerian politics as it is now is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. That is not an outlandish assertion as it appears to be. He is the man to usher in the golden age for Nigeria. On paper, due to gerrymandering, the APC is the Party to beat come 2015. The Party is set to clobber what is left of the PDP. The grand marriage of convenience and the coming together of political juggernauts under “one broom”, is having great impact on Nigeria’s political landscape. The PDP is a tinderbox waiting for a match.
As the arc of the moral world bends. The man to light the tinderbox is Tinubu. Most of the enthusiasm now rolling into APC, can be distilled into this: the country is not well run. The lamentable failure of President Goodluck Jonathan has many Nigerians leary of what the future holds for them politically, economically and socially. The mood of optimism and possibility that welcomed GEJ, has long melted into anxiety. Hence, the rise and rise of the APC. The political paranoia caused by the ruling Party PDP, has led to Tinubu being the voice of wisdom. Let us set the record straight, I have never said Tinubu was unintelligent and tribalistic. To brand him as such will be incorrect and reductive. More so, with OBJ’s bombshell, Tinubu has turned out to be a skilled and artful Politician. One whose Nigeria’s political future depends on.

The trouble is this: our man Tinubu, has a fondness for yes men. He has a belief in his own infallibility and the APC Party he owns does not practice democracy. He lives in his own ideological bubble. The only ideology he has, is self-enrichment. He has managed to shutter himself off from would be critics and intellectual opponents. He has completely immunized himself from contacts with people with progressive arguments and progressive progressives. Tinubu, is the man that now gushes the theology of democracy and accountability. As the World turns. A President Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, hypothesis is plausible. To me it is the worst case scenario.

President Olusegun Obasanjo, may have dementia setting in. Nigerians do not. He is as culpable as GEJ in explaining the dreadful mess that Nigeria is today. Why the country has not made greater progress towards improving the lives of its 99 percent underclass. Why the people that have the power to do so much, have chosen to do so little towards rooting out corruption and unifying a fractious populace. OBJ gave us Umaru Yar’Adua. The man died. He gave us Goodluck Jonathan. The man is as good as dead. Now cleverly, he is selling us Tinubu and APC. While they may have stirred up our political emotions, we need to wise up. AND THINK. In APC, under its management we will once again lose by winning.


Whether it’s a problem or a possibility, God will never give you anything bigger than you can handle. That means we can confidently walk into anything God brings our way. You can do anything through Christ (Philippians 4:13). Nothing is too big for God. Stop telling your God you’ve got a big problems. Tell your problems, you’ve got a big God. _ Anonymous.
