Twice As Tall: Tinubu Is Way Too Big For Comparison

Wow, yesterday was a glorious day for Nigerians in the entertainment industry as our own Oluwa Burna bagged a Grammy award for Best Global Music Album(TWICE AS TALL) while Wizkid won his first-ever Grammy Award for his collaboration with Beyonce in the song‘Brown Skin Girl’ off the 2019 album, “The Lion King.”

Astonishing the power of dreams can turn out, DREAMS can take you beyond your dreams to wild places.

Aside from the razzmatazz and the glamour associated with this big win for Nigeria, I see a hardworking Boy( Burna Boy) who refused to be intimidated by naysayers and overzealous fans.

You see Nigerians are always spiteful and full of hate remarks whenever it comes to seeing a fellow Nigerian rise above the limitations set by the system to achieve their dreams. They fail to undertake the task themselves and yet cast aspersions on the bold that have decided to brave the odds and achieve the impossible.

Prior to now fans of Nigerians biggest artist namely Wizkid, Davido and even Olamide have tried their best in creating an unhealthy comparison between these superstars. At a point, it was like the Music giants where up against themselves, we heard of clashes between Burna Boy and Davido in Ghana, Wizkid is perceived to be parallel in relationship with Davido and even a conspiracy theory was sold that Burna Boy and Wizkid have teamed up against Davido.(na Royal Rumble?)

But the success story last night has placed Nigeria on the world map of ACHIEVEMENTS, all glory goes to Nigeria.

Today so many conspiracy theories are flying about on the personage of Asiwaju Boa Ahmed Tinubu, oh Tinubu has lost out with the cabal. The Attorney General is not pleased with Tinubu, he can not make the presidency.

El Rufai is mad about Tinubu’s aspiration and will give him no chance. The theories keep mounting while the man of the moment, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is focussed on seeing a United Nigeria achieving its dreams of its founding fathers.

The truth be told Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is at the Zenith of his political career and 2023 would mark a turning point for this present crop of leaders. After 2023 many political gladiators would retire and play the role of statesmanship.

For those making a comparison with Tinubu and other political players, permit me to say that it is a misplaced priority ab initio. Tinubu is a leader who has played an enormous role in sustaining our democracy, he has paid the sacrifices and stands twice as tall. Making a comparison with these upcoming politicians is not only erroneous but a slight on the political career of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

There is a viral quote making the rounds on the internet and attributed to the Kaduna State Governor Nasir El Rufai and i quote,

“It’s very easy for everyone to come into the APC today and want to downgrade others without asking questions.

Meanwhile, the individuals they’re talking down on gave life to this party. How come they do not stop and ask how APC was cultivated and nurtured to what it is to today?

When the chips were down, can they tell how General Buhari survived the onslaught of Atiku, Kwankwaso and others at the 2014 APC Presidential primary?

We shall speak when the time is right, not now.”- Gov. Nasr El-Rufai The Governor of Kaduna State.

If the above quote really is from El Rufai then indeed we can safely say the Kaduna State Governor has said it all.

Tinubu’s role presently in APC is a father figure role, aside from the likes of Buhari and the Founding National Chairman(once interim national chairman) of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande there is hardly any other name in APC today that can be comparable to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in terms of sacrifice and input.

To date, the title” National APC Leader  ” ascribed to Tinubu is not in contention by anyone in the party and yet you make comparisons?

As long as Tinubu means well for the party and Nigeria we should botherless about his relevance in the party and join hands with the Jagaban in taking Nigeria to greater heights.

Today Bola Tinubu’s achievements in Lagos remains indelible, his consistency in the struggle for true federalism is in the best interest of every Nigeria. As we march towards the 2023 presidential elections our focus should be who has the best interest of the country at heart.

At this time unhealthy comparison should not be our headache, who the cap rightly fits should be our focus and not an unhealthy comparison that would lead us to nowhere.

May God give us the best possible president the country deserves in 2023.
