Yesterday night Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu alongside other notable South-West leaders paid a condolence visit to President Buhari over the demise of the Chief of Army Staff, General Attahiru Ibrahim and other senior military officers who died in a plane crash.

Seen in a group picture with Buhari at the presidential villa were Former Ogun State Governor, Chief Olusegun Osoba, Gen. Alani Akinrinade, Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande and Chief Pius Akinyelure.

May the soul of the departed rest in peace. Well, this is a solemn visit so I would leave it at that.

On Sunday was historical in that the South-West leaders came together to declare their support for the ban on open grazing, restructuring and creation of state police by the Southern Governors.

Notable leaders that gathered on that day were Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, Chief Bisi Akande, Olusegun Osoba, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila; Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun; Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, former APC National Vice Chairman, South-west, Chief Pius Akinyelure, Gen. Alani Akinrinade (rtd) amongst others.

Days prior to this meeting Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was seen receiving the EU Ambassador to Nigeria and ECOWAS, Ketil Karlsen at his  Bourdillon residence in Ikoyi.

As a matter of fact, no day passes by without the Jagaban attending to matters of national importance. It seems the Jagaban is now the rallying point on national issues as his input is craved after by stakeholders.

Why some critics of the Jagaban tend to insinuate that the former Lagos State Governor is a spent force politically the truth of the matter is that Tinubu has become the major political reference point today in Nigeria.

His leadership qualities and acumen is now a subject of learning by political students who wish to make a success from their career. The act of politics is much more than the activities of politicians, it involves a whole lot of other activities.

As we march towards the 2023 general elections it is clear that one man who would take the centre stage is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the Jagaban of Borgu. You are looking at the champion (Odogwu).
