HYPOCRITES PUSH TINUBU AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF NIGERIA
Farouk Martins Aresa @oomoaresa
Watch out for those pushing Amoda Yekini Ogunlere alias Ahmed Tinubu as the next President
of Nigeria. While his ethic group, Yoruba may love him as a shield or the crafty politician best
suited against Yoruba prowlers, the role of the President is not for him. Those pushing his
presidency are either fake or fraudulent individuals. Nobody deals with blemishes within
Yoruba better than the Yoruba themselves.
Shine your eyes, Yoruba has never stoop that low to present such a character as their best or
even second best for the Presidency. Indeed, until recently they have stubbornly stayed out as
Opposition Party throughout the history of Nigeria than accept the second best as their leader.
There is history here, but this is not the place to recite each.
It is true that politics in Nigeria has sunk lower than ever, reflecting the inevitable situation we
find ourselves. The political class has been hijacked by those whose only goal is to become
foreign currency billionaires. They do not care how they get there and are ready to sacrifice the
interest of their Country in the process. Sadly, this is where we are and it will take great effort
on the part of the people with goodwill other than money to retrace our steps.
In order to become foreign currency billionaires, these leaders are willing to be recruited as
foreign agents, mortgage the future of this and next generations economic survival for their
personal vanities abroad, raid our foreign reserve to import junk into the Country, accept
Structural Adjustment Program and Devaluations according to the urging of their Neo-colonial
masters. Yes, the same ones our fathers fought tooth and nail to regain Political Independence.
Tinubu and those that have stripped us naked in the world markets turning us into the Poverty
capital of the world must not be given more opportunities to rule as the best person Yoruba can
present for President in Nigeria. If others do, no Yoruba son or daughter should. Yoruba are
known to the world to be highly cultured and too proud to stoop that low.
Those Nigerians floating Tinubu as the next President are fake, hypocrite and fraud waiting to
disgrace the caliber of leader we as Nigerians in general and Yoruba in particular can present to
the world. We have had leaders, both civilians and military that could not step into certain
countries for fear of being arrested for a variety of unimaginable crimes not expected from the
caliber of the leader of a country.
We have been through this memory lane before. We knew who Ibrahim Babaginda was before
he overthrew Buhari and Idiagbon. If most of us were not aware then, many more have a better
picture today of why he overthrew Buhari. Idiagbon had insisted on making him accountable for
his drug and nefarious activities. Yet, he became a head of state, not by our choice but with the
support of military and civilian crooks like him. Little surprise that he delivered us for Structural
Adjustment Program to curry favor from international communities shortly after taking over.
The same Buhari that sanitized the consciousness of Nigerians with Idiagbon using Operation
WAI (War Against Indiscipline), that was respected for his Spartan lifestyle and use of official
military cars, has now joined the Tunde Chukwu and Sule with a taste for foreign travel, luxuries
and vanities. He now savors Western taste because he can afford it. Buhari, in his old age: abeg
make Ai enjoy small jare before ai die. Na who go wash ime hand with spit by the river?
Manuel Noriega of Panama like IBB, was also a money launderer and drug dealer well-known to
international communities that tolerated him as a head of state. As soon as he crossed their red
line, thinking he was immune for delivering to them, he was brought to his knees and jailed in
the US and France. The Shah of Iran and Gadhafi of Libya were lured into their own dens. No
matter how useful you are to international communities, you are only a dog that has its day.
Remember the Great Robert Mugabe. He earned every degree and honors the British could
bestow. The day he had enough of their promises, tired of their pledge of support and
procrastination for land reform; they turned against him. These lessons we must learn from the
past. You will be remembered for what you did for your people, not what you did for foreign
communities that cannot wait to hang you by the tree like a common criminal.
All the gold, diamond, uranium, cobalt, land and free trade zones our politicians gave away
have made every African Country worse off than we were, unless we missed one country
anyone can point to that has survived. There is no other politician that would throw a whole
country under the bus than Yekini Amoda Ogunlere. If he could throw his real mother under the
bus for power grab in Lagos, why not the whole Country?
The Pharaoh of Egypt died with treasures and slaves wishing they could live another life. It was
all in vain, they have become Museum and Amusement Park for the next generation. Even
vandals looted their graves and made away with valuable treasures their class could never
come close to in the life of the kings. So were ants and animals that fed on their rotten bodies.
Our class of looters will not be so lucky. No amount of loot can buy health, as some invalids are
wasting away, not to mention when they feed on one another within our “korokoro” eyes!
Tinubu falls short in character below Governor Fayemi, Pastor Bakare and others in his ethnic
group with the same ambition to become the President. As well as Vice-President Osinbajo that
is far better than him. As for those humiliating the VP, they simply forgot how cool and
collected Jonathan was as Vice-President and later as Acting President before we turned against
the cabals. Where is Buhari’s trust in Gen. Abdul Bello Dambazau and Co. that flew Yar’Adua
into Nigeria by Air-Ambulance without the knowledge of the Acting President?
It is one thing to play Lagosians against one another into power and become a king maker;
Yekini Amoda Ogunlere cannot fool all Nigerians all the time.
