Why So Many Nigerians Are Willing To Go On A Blind Date With Tinubu By Osigwe Omo-Ikirodah

What is blind dating?

A blind date is a social engagement between two people who have not previously met, usually arranged by a mutual acquaintance.

Blind dating of course is not an assurance that all will turn out well, but there are lots of perks in going on a blind date.

Aside from having fun, boosting your confidence, having a new friend etc, blind dating is anchored on recommendations by a mutual acquaintance most times.

I can hear someone murmuring dis one don start again wetin concern blind dating concern Tinubu?

You see, we that are not indomie generation understands the value of matchmaking, most times we must have suffered heartbreaks and a blind date might just be a way to get back in the game.

So with the fun that goes along with it, one may be lucky to finally find a soul mate.

Today across the 36 States of the Federation Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu support groups are springing up everywhere, all with the sole purpose of assisting in getting Tinubu as the next elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Listen carefully, Tinubu has not made his intention known but he is already getting RECOMMENDATIONS from all and sundry. Like a blind date, the majority of these volunteers springing up in every nook and cranny of the federation have suffered severe heartbreaks with past leaders.

They feel having Tinubu as the next president would be a panacea to their long-suffering as a result of failed relationships, sorry leadership I meant to say.

Tinubu’s antecedent is what is prompting the show of support from lovers, sorry volunteers, I beg your pardon.

I have carefully studied the rise in support groups for Tinubu’s presidency and wonder why no other potential aspirant is not making the rounds like the way Tinubu happens to be the trending political structure germinating up every single second.

Take a careful look at all other likely aspirants both in the APC and PDP and you would see little or no support group under their platform.

A practical analysis.

Go to Facebook type the keyword Tinubu For President, Tinubu 2023, Asiwaju Tinubu Movement etc you would see Thousands of search results.

Now type the same keywords with Nyesom Wike, Prof Osinbajo, Aminu Tambuwwal, Tunde Bakare, Donald Duke,Danjuma Goje, Rochas Okorocha etc or input whoever comes to your mind and the search results of all these people combined would bring only a handful of groups.

And even at that none of the groups are active. Now join the Asiwaju groups and you would see the daily activities of these volunteers thereby giving the validation that they are not AUDIO VOLUNTEERS.

On Whatsapp, it is way even more as Tinubu’s platforms are springing up at an unimaginable rate.

An insight on the activities going on in these groups shows clearly that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has genuinely touched a lot of lives hence the need for him to translate his goodwill into governance.

The testimonies by members of these groups can emotionally move one to tears getting to know Tinubu’s magnanimity and benevolence.

A lot of Nigerians are frustrated and are ready to go on a blind date with Tinubu because of his sterling qualities deserving of a leader.

A fan of Tinubu who happened to see this article before publication had this to say and I quote…

“Going on a blind date with Tinubu would help boost our morale because Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu comes with no baggage and might just be our right soul mate to heal our wounds of long neglect, underdevelopment, injustice, inequality, corruption and other malaise weakening us as a Nation.” -Jeremy.

Okorocha Speaks On His EFCC Arrest




Kindly Share This

A former Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has insisted he was merely invited and not arrested by the Economic Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Tuesday.

EFCC Head of Media, Wilson Uwujaren, confirmed Okorocha was picked up from his private office.

However, Okorocha in a statement signed by his spokesman, Sam Onwuemeodo, stated that the EFCC facility is not “a slaughterhouse” and was only investigating his activities while he was Governor, following several petitions written against him.

The statement read, “We have been inundated with calls by media houses and concerned Nigerians and beyond, trying to confirm the reported invitation of Senator Rochas Okorocha by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, later today, being April 13, 2021.

“The truth is that Okorocha left as the governor of Imo State on May 28, 2019. And shortly after his exit as governor, Imo State Government wrote petitions upon petitions against him.

“The EFCC investigated the petitions and has been in various courts of the land with Okorocha to that effect.

“And if the EFCC has decided to invite Okorocha for clarifications on the matters already in courts, especially with a new Chairman at the helm of affairs at the Commission, there is nothing wrong with that.

“The matters between EFCC and Okorocha over his governorship in Imo have been pendent in various courts of the land.

“At the end of the day, we would know whether the Commission will be withdrawing the cases in courts, or would continue with the cases already in courts.

“But to us, the Commission is doing its job and should be given the needed cooperation. And Okorocha being a law-abiding citizen, would always cooperate with the Commission over the matters in courts. EFCC is not a slaughterhouse, but a very responsible institution and should be seen as such.

“We have no reason to complain about the invitation of today, which Okorocha honoured as a patriotic and responsible Nigerian.

“As we stated earlier, the Commission didn’t invite Okorocha today, for the first time.”

Court Reinstates Edo Commission Sacked By Oshiomhole 13 Years Ago



Kindly Share This

The Court of Appeal, Benin Division, on Tuesday, set aside the dissolution of the Edo State Law Review Commission for the past 13 years over failure to follow due process.

The commission was dissolved in 2008 by the administration of Governor Adams Oshiomhole.

In a unanimous‎ judgment, the court ordered that the commission’s members be reinstated and be allowed to complete their tenure, which should now run from March 25, 2021, to August 25, 2025.

In the judgment delivered by a three-person panel and read by Justice Biobele Abraham Georgewill, with justices Oyebisi Omoleye and Fredrick Oho as members, the appellate court held that Mr Oshiomhole’s government did not follow the laid-down procedure in dissolving the commission.

In the suit (No B/375/OS/2009), the appellants were Jonathan Aghimien (SAN), T. E. Ogbeide-Ihama, and Edward Aigbanbe, while the Edo governor, the attorney general, and the House of Assembly were the respondents.

The appellants challenged the ruling of Justice Nogi Aifuwa Imoukhuede of the state’s high court, which dismissed the appellants’ claims for being statute-barred.

In his ruling, Mr Georgewill declared that “the dissolution of the Edo State Law Review Commission and consequent termination of the appointments of the Appellants on 24/11/2008, without due compliance with the provisions of the Revised Edition Law of Edo state 2001, by the 1st Respondent, the then Executive Governor of Edo state is null, void and of no effect whatsoever.”

The court set aside the letter issued by the then-Secretary to State Government on behalf of the governor, saying it was issued without compliance with the Revised Edition Law of Edo State 2001.

He said, “An order is hereby given reinstating the appellants to their aforesaid position as Chairman and members of the Edo State Law Review Commission to serve out the remainder of their five-year tenure.”

He added, “Thereafter from the date of this judgment being 25/3/2021 to 25/8/2025 totalling five years in line with Section 7 (1) of the Revised Edition Law 2001 of Edo state, excluding the period from 24/11/2008 to 25/3/2021, unless the appellants are removed in line with the provision of the Revised Edition law of Edo State of Nigeria 2001.”
