Yesterday, Bola Tinubu and his APC cohorts did everything to lock down
Lagos and make the world see that hold-up which we all know as GO-SLOW has
disappeared. Boasting of a fake road density, Tinubu blasted Obasanjo as a
hater of industrialization and that his own progressive government has
done great things. We ask in ecstasy, which Lagos is Tinubu boasting
Is it this same Lagos of endless road repairs since 1999 yet has its
traffic jam increasing by the day? That same Ikorodu Road that was closed
down today to allow smooth passage of the few buses of the APC crowd has
heavy traffic jam every blessed day. This is despite the billions that
Fasola and Ambode has spent on that particular road, constructing and
reconstructing periodically and ridiculously.
Tinubu’s Lagos has also been a giant plant of unemployed people. There is
no difference between APC policies in Lagos for the past nineteen years
and that of the PDP nationally for sixteen years.
What is different is that Tinubu and his followers are very good in open
lies and rooted fake news. A good instance is the public lie that Tinubu
restated yesterday at the Buhari/APC rally that Lagos had one independent
Electricity Generation and was the first to so doing. Please where is that
company or where are the evidences today? It is very clear that propaganda
does not bring light, and Lagosians are witnesses.
Tinubu as well called out on Obasanjo/PDP’s evident de-industrialization
campaigns, hinging it on the failure of electricity. But why has Ikeja
Industrial Estate turned to Ikeja Gospel Estate? Why is it that Lagos,
with the trillions made from people’s sweat yearly, has barely any company
in its Ibile Investment Holdings? Can Ibile Investment be compared to the
great Odua Investment company that the progressives of the Awolowo era
created? Why is that rich Lagos does not have a single airline and Tinubu
owns First Nation? We also need to be reminded that Eko Hotels and Airport
Hotel were built through Odua Investment company, where is the hotel by
Tinubu’s hegemony for Lagos? But the same “messiah” of Lagos personally
has a five-star hotel in Oriental. We can mention more and more of this
mass exploitation of the common wealth of Lagos by Tinubu and his
followers. Lagos public money is practically being shared in Bourdillon.
Lagosians and Nigerians must be clear that there is obviously no
difference between Obasanjo and Tinubu just as there is no difference
between APC and PDP. Both are against public industries and are for
putting the economy solely into private hands.
They both also hate social infrastructure and promotes hypocrisy and mass
corruption. Lagos for instance has had no public higher institution since
1999 that Tinubu, Fasola, and Ambode had ruled. But Lagos has universities
for child cultism (Awawa and Badoo), while also maintaining big
polytechnics of thuggery have MC Oluomo; Kunle Poly; Femi Japron; Ade
Lawyer; Sego; and others as Technical Instructors and erudite lecturers.
Allen and many other junctions house a chain of colleges of sex workers.
Public hospitals in Lagos are shamelessly ill-equiped and serves more as
dealth centres than health centres.
The wind is still blowing, and the hens pouch is crudely naked!
Tinubu no help ONE PERCENT of the masses of Lagosians. He and his
followers only share crumbs to some and tax the hell out of the working
people. By keeping Lagosians perpetually poor with the social Darwinist
propaganda of hardwork and good luck, the Tinubu hegemony is taking us all
for a horse ride.
By the virtue of mass consciousness and the very desperation with which
APC is campaigning like never before, bastardizing everywhere with posters
and banners; the end of a gluttonous era is drawing nearer. We must use
the next elections to reject Tinubu and his propaganda. The PDP is, of
course, no option. Lagosians must shine our eyes now, seek lasting freedom
and vote pro-people parties like the African Action Congress (AAC). Both
Omoyele Sowore and Seun Ajireloja represent a real alternative that can
build another Lagos where the masses will be priority in enjoyment and
good welfare, not in paying taxes and heavy working alone. The AAC will
built alternative transport system like a tube trains and a massively
workable water transport. The AAC will advance the Lagos water system
instead of privatizing it as APC has been seeking to do under Ambode.
There will be light, and no more lies about an independent Electricity
generation that only exists in the files of the Alausa hawks.
Lagos will be a significant part of our party’s educational revolution and
its health sector will be free, quality and advanced as all parts of the
country. It has the highest population of working and unemployed people.
This means it also houses the biggest size of poor people.
Lagos also is highly wealthy. But the whole wealth ends up in the pocket
of a few. People’s lands are forcefully taken making Tinubu the biggest
landlord in the country. Yet, the “state of excellence” owes a great
public debt, second only to Nigeria as whole. We all know where the
trillions of naira are going to. We know those who boasted that Oyetola is
richer than the whole Osun state. And the world witnessed how the same
anti-progressives camouflaging as Awoists stole Otodo Gbame, a land of
over 30,000 people in Ikate Area in Lekki, killing over 22 indigenes and
denigrating many others in order to turn the whole place to an estate for
the few rich called- PERIWINKLE.
After the attempted lock-out yesterday, Lagosians should reflect on
whether it is not so dangerous to postpone the moment of emancipation.
Let’s use February 16th to punish all our oppressors across the divides,
and especially show to the whole world that our dear Lasgidi can be a
Lagos for all, not Tinubu city!
