2023:Why Tinubu Remains The Only Force To Contend With As Apathy Hits Presidential Aspirants By Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah

“No matter how fantastic the seed is, the soil will determine its yield”…

I stormed on this aforementioned quote today and one thing struck my mind or rather one person came across my mind, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the former Lagos State Governor.

You know whatever product you think you have to market the soil matters a lot on how it germinates. These few days one major topic dominant on the lips of Nigerians is Tinubu’s eligibility to contest the 2023 presidential elections.

It is quite funny that Tinubu tops all the headlines and permutations as regards the presidential election, political pundits like us who earn a living from forecasting political events are surprised that Nigerians have not started asking where are the other Candidates?

You see, the argument we have today is centred on if Tinubu is the best choice or not? If Tinubu deserves to succeed Buhari or not, these people involved in this arguments are not mentioning other possible candidates, why has no one bothered to ask where are your aspirants?

The elections are close you should be seen marketing your products but instead, you are bogged down with Tinubu’s fever, where are your candidates?

In every competition, the competitors dictate the pace of debates on who is better qualified for the job. For example, millions of Nigerians are qualified to contest the seat of the presidency by virtue of the laid down requirements.

Now the aspirants pedigree is what comes into play here to assess who is worthy of the trust of the electorates.

So if we agree that millions of Nigerians are qualified for the office of the President and the relevant authorities in charge of stamping their eligibility like the political parties and electoral bodies alongside the security agencies have given a clean bill on the aspirants then the only logical debate to be involved in is a comparison of the aspirants.

It would be hypocritical arguing DUMBLY with an ignoramus when the principal bodies like INEC, the Courts, EFCC and co have given the aspirants a clean bill of health.

So again show me your aspirant and lets us compare and contrast who is better?

Of course, there are thousands of choices out there that are very competitive to succeed Buhari but would their fantastic fruits yield a bountiful harvest? There is one thing to have a good product to sell for the presidential election then there is another thing for the soil to determine if the product would yield a bountiful harvest.

Competency and ability to Germinate are the keywords here. In a situation whereby the product is FANTABULOUS and the SOIL is Fertile then we technically have a MONOPOLISTIC product.

Since there is apathy amongst presidential aspirants I would go straight to the point and list why I say Tinubu remains the only force to contend with as we approach the 2023 presidential elections.

Like what Otunba Olatunji said, no aspirant would want to set fire on the tons of money he has somewhere, knowing fully well that the Jagaban may likely feature in the 2023 presidential election.

Isn’t it funny that as we speak all potential presidential aspirants are glued to the political activities of BAT to see how well they can read his body language?

Tinubu is the most competent amongst the crowd when it comes to leadership which makes the major fulcrum of governance, Tinubu has the diplomatic exposure, patriotism, acceptability, experience, influence, charisma and above all the resources to stage a world-class presidential campaign that would be the envy of every successful politician anywhere in the world.

Tinubu has watered the soil with his goodwill, his human capacity development is legendary, his connectivity across the 36 States is unimaginable, the Jagaban is way too big for a match and would remain the main force to contend with in the 2023 presidential election.

Trouble As Plot To Remove Senate President, Ahmed Lawan Thickens

The plot to remove Senate President, Ahmed Lawan is gaining momentum in the National Assembly, POLITICS NIGERIA has gathered.

Hon. Sergius Ogun, a member of the house of Representatives(North-East/Esan South-East constituency of Edo state) was first to hint that all was not well in the hallowed chambers. He appeared on ‘The Morning Show,’ a programme on ARISE NEWS Channel, revealing that plans were underway to oust Lawan.

He disclosed that Lawan may be removed from office this week after he criticised Southern governors over their resolution to ban Open grazing. In his words;

“We are in the process of reviewing the constitution and the chairman of the National Assembly (Lawan) is rebuking, chastising the governors for saying that they should restructure the country. So, if you ask me, any right-thinking person will believe that the process is dead on arrival. He doesn’t believe in it; why would he talk like that?”

“For him really to be talking to governors representing a section of the country like that, he’s not fit to be the Senate president and I strongly believe that the senators from the South will do something about it this week.”

“We are even talking about impeachment? Who is the leader? The Chairman of the National Assembly. If we are going to start any process of impeachment of the president, who is going to superintend over that? The same man we are talking about. I think he should go and I am sure the process has started.”

Fresh information emerging on Monday night revealed some North-west senators are already mobilizing their colleagues from the North-central for a possible onslaught on Lawan.

Among other reasons for the opposition against Lawan include allegations of Sluggishness in approving funds, ‘tight-fistedness’ and his unbridled support for President Buhari.

If Lawan is shoved aside, the position may move to the North-west zone, which has the highest number of senators.

The National Information Technology Development Agency has raised its concerns over messaging app WhatsApp’s privacy policy.

“The National Information Technology Development Agency under Section 6 (f) of the NITDA Act 2007 wishes to provide this advisory to Nigerians to address Nigerian concerns on changes to Whatsapp Terms of Service and Privacy Policy which took effect on May 15, 2021,” it said.

This is contained in the statement released on Monday titled ‘Whatsapp privacy policy changes: Implication for Nigerian users.’ It was signed by the Head of Corporate Affairs and External Relations at the agency, Hadiza Umar.

The statement acknowledged that Whatsapp users were free to decide whether they want to give their consent to the processing of their data based on the new privacy policy.

“The Nigeria Data Protection Regulation (NDPR) recognises consent (a clear, unambiguous expression of privacy terms communicated by the controller and accepted by the Data Subject) as one of the lawful basis for data processing. Acceptance of the new privacy policy and terms of use implies that user data would now be shared with Facebook and other third parties,” the statement said.

The agency urged Nigerians to explore other messaging platforms beyond Whatsapp and advised that sharing sensitive personal information on private messaging and social media platforms be limited, given WhatsApps affiliation to Facebook and its history with user data sharing.

The agency added that it would continue engaging with Facebook as they “have given them our opinion on areas to improve compliance with the NDPR. We have also raised concerns as to the marked difference between the privacy standard applicable in Europe, under the GDPR and the rest of the world.”

Since 2016, WhatsApp’s privacy policies have permitted the application to share metadata such as user phone numbers, device information, and location, among others, with Facebook involved in legal tussles over privacy concerns.
