Na Dem Dey Rush US: Tinubu’s Inroad In The North Sends Distress Signal To Detractors

When an ungrateful person comes to the end of a journey they speak derogatorily about the boat that landed them safely (do not speak evil of those that help you).-African Proverb.

This ancient Uganda proverb teaches us the values of generosity and the need to be grateful to your benefactor.

The past few months have seen a massive concerted effort by anti- Tinubu forces to drag and slander the APC national leader down the dirty mud of politics and thereafter bring him to public ridicule all because they hate his guts.

So intensive are the attacks that one watching from the sidelines would think Tinubu is finished politically and even cremated.

The irony of the whole drama is that these same traducers were once beneficiaries of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s legacies and sacrifices.

So harsh is their aggression that Tinubu’s integrity is under attack by these bullies who claim to be democrats and want the best for Nigeria. Tinubu today is labelled as an anti masses leader who is autocratic in his approach to governance.

They tend to capitalise on” some of the shortcomings “of the present Government and heap the blames on Tinubu as if the former Lagos State governor controls the economy of the country or maybe he was appointed as the chief economic adviser of Nigeria.

Having the same characteristics as the wicked souls these naysayers have never one day given credit to Tinubu for some of the major milestone achievements of the present government. They are blind to the areas of positive development that the Buhari’s administration has ushered in.

They say Tinubu has strangled Lagos yet they refuse to give Tinubu the credit that Lagos State is one of the fastest-growing MEGA cities in the world.

They don’t see that Lagos remains the only working and self-sustaining state in Nigeria.

Let us quote Wikipedia since it is a reference point to even the haters.

“Lagos State is arguably the most economically important state of the country, containing Lagos, the nation’s largest urban area. It is a major financial centre and would be the fifth-largest economy in Africa if it were a country.”

The last line is a sucker punch, ” It is a major financial centre and would be the fifth-largest economy in Africa if it were a country.”

These same people when arguing in their private and public quarters would beat their chest and say Lagos is a pacesetter in Africa.

They would say Lagos has the best clubs, the best business services, the best schools, the best recreational facilities, the finest hotels, the finest wheels, the most beautiful women and all the nice talks.

They have forgotten that Tinubu was a progenitor to the first-class services Lagos offers them. Let us go a bit practical now so we can compare and contrast Lagos with their own dream State in Nigeria if at all there is any.

I simply did an ariel view of Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lekki, Mainland and some other “communities” all in Lagos.

Then I did an ariel view of Uyo, Benin City, Port Harcourt, Calabar, Kaduna and the rest. The images that came out from my search from the aforementioned states were like GLORIFIED VILLAGES COMPARED to the images from Lagos.

Yet they say Tinubu is the problem of Lagos, how evil can people be? The heart of man is desperately deceitful and these are the kind of people the Bible refers to.

Tinubu’s part in the democracy we enjoy today can not be swept under the carpet, as a loyal ally to the Late MKO Abiola, Tinubu contributed immensely to the struggle to the point of selling his properties to help fund NADECO and NALICON. They fought gallantly against the ‘Dictatorial” rule of General Sani Abacha.

His house was bombed and he ran into exile, all for the struggle. You see there is a Nigerian proverb that says Pikin wey the mama carry for her back go tell you say journey no far if you ask am how far? The truth b say na pikin wey dey ungrateful na go say journey no far , because pikin wey see how the mama sweat for him sake go always appreciate beta thing.

You see kindness is a language that the blind can see and the deaf can hear, Tinubu’s generosity transcends the South-West.

Anyway, Tinubu is presently sending shock waves across the country with his inroads in the North, like the local man would say “NA DEM DEY RUSH US”

The last two weeks have practically witnessed the Jagaban all over in the North making good acquaintance with the Arewa’s. He was in Katsina the President’s own State to commiserate with victims of the Katsina market fire where he donated 50 Million Naira to help cushion the losses suffered by the victims.

From there Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was to chair the 11th Arewa House lecture held in Kaduna. As Kaduna dey wind down na be Kano for follow up, Tinubu was hosted by the Kano State Government as part of activities involving his 69th birthday celebrations. It was GRAND.

Now to make their nightmares last longer Tinubu has just been invited to chair the book presentation of Aisha Buhari, the wife to the president haters say does not want Tinubu to succeed him, mind you Buhari opened the celebrations in Kano with his virtual representation.

No doubt Tinubu was given presidential treatment in all these States. Definitely, Tinubu’s inroad in the North is not going down well with his detractors, the alliance of Lagos and Kano alone is a disaster to political enemies not to talk of having strong grassroots support across the 19 northern states.

The worse aspect is that these political juveniles are erroneously playing Tinubu to the hearts of the northerners by spreading all sorts of gist as regards his alliance with the North.

Their so-called hate speech that Tinubu is a Fulani SLAVE may just be the right harmony that might make the north accept Tinubu. Imagine this, only these same people will say Tinubu is a FULANI SLAVE and only dem go still talk say the FULANI go betray am. Is it their betrayal???

Electoral statistics shows that the South-East which is mostly the orchestrators of this hate speech don’t vote in NUMBERS. Their votes have never decided any presidential election in reality.

If the FULANI’s decide to vote their slave tell me how can they now defeat him at the general polls? Kano’s vote equals about 4 states in some cases.

So many political pundits out there but little with political knowledge.Weda dem like am or not ….na DEM dey rush us.

Why EFCC Arrested Okorocha In Abuja




Kindly Share This

Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday evening arrested a former governor of Imo State and senator representing Imo West senatorial district, Chief Rochas Okorocha, over alleged sleazes while he served as governor.

The former governor, it was learnt, was arrested in his Abuja residence by the operatives, who were said to have been on his trail for some time.

A source in the commission informed the Nigerian Tribune that the former governor was arrested following his failure to honour several invitations sent to him to report at the anti-graft agency’s headquarters in Abuja.

“EFCC resorted to his (Okorocha’s) arrest following his refusal to honour invitations sent to him. Many invitations were sent to him to report at the Abuja headquarters but he failed to do so. Before his arrest today (yesterday), our operatives have been on his trail for some days,” the source told Nigerian Tribune.

EFCC’s Head, Media and Publicity, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Okorocha’s arrest to Nigerian Tribune, saying that, “it is true he was arrested today. He is with us now.”

As of the time of filing this report, the former governor was still being questioned by interrogators and it is uncertain if he would be granted administrative bail to go home.

Though Uwujaren did not reveal the reason behind his arrest, sources informed that the senator had been on the anti-corruption commission’s radar since he left office in May 2019 and in July 2019, it sealed off some properties linked to the former governor, his wife and daughters in Imo State.

Group Decries Extra-Judicial Killing Of Fulani




Kindly Share This

A coalition of Fulani youth groups has called on the federal and state governments to ensure a halt to what they described as “the extra-judicial killings of Fulani in the country” by those opposed to the existence of the race.

The coalition in a communiqué after a press conference, Tuesday, in Abuja said they would not sit and watch their people labeled as miscreants and killing them like fouls in their own country.

The coalition under the aegis of Fulbe Umminobe Sukabe Development Association of Nigeria (FUSADAN) dissociated themselves from the group that reached an agreement with state governors over the recent crisis in parts of the South west.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the leader of FUSADAN, Comrade Mohammad Ardo, said of all the tribes in Nigeria, non is as law abiding as the Fulani, insisting that the stock have benefited the least from the Nigerian government.

He said the Fulani nation is fed up with being described as criminals whenever security challenges occur in the country.

“Of all the tribes in Nigeria, none is as law abiding as the Fulani but the Fulani have not benefited in any way from the Nigerian government; no schools, no place to graze, no electricity, water etc. This accusation of criminality must stop.

“Miyetti Allah is a Fulani group but they are not delivering their responsibilities, which is why the Fulani youths have gathered themselves to take a stand because they are not delivering what we want.

“A meeting was held recently in the South-west where some Fulani organisation signed and accepted an agreement that grazing should be stopped. If it was a real Fulani organisation, they wouldn’t have accepted because if the government wants us to stop, they must provide certain things for the Fulani because we have had grazing reserves before independence.

“Fulani are fully Nigerians and they have the right to travel, live and graze anywhere in Nigeria as enshrined in the Constitution of the country. Any newspaper, magazine, journal or any other news channel that uses the name ‘Fulani’ to qualify any crime or criminal should be ready to meet our lawyers in court. We say emphatically that, enough is enough of these senseless killings of innocent Fulani and their herds across the South-West and South-east states of the country.”
