Senate Presidency: Is APC Really Thinking?

Senate Presidency: Is APC Really Thinking?

🕔18:11, 4.Apr 2019

Upon being re-elected, President Muhammadu Buhari endeared himself once again to the citizenry when he promised to show significant improvement in his second term. Buhari had also attributed a great deal of his first term setbacks to a dysfunction in the Legislature where the opposition seem to dictate the content and pace of his change agenda. However, any sober analysis of the executive-legislative crisis will show that a perceived injustice towards a section of the country during Buhari’s first term had a huge impact.

Why Tinubu’s Dynasty May Not Crash In 2023 And Beyond (II)

First, an erratum: I must make readers aware that there was an oversight in the first series of this article. The year 2019 in the title wrongly went with the publication instead of 2023 which was in use in the first draft. I also observed that similar error also recurred in the last paragraph of the article. The right year in the title should be 2023 and not 2019 as in the first series. This is because, like it or hate it, Tinubu’s hegemony had already been established in Lagos in 2019. It can only take another four years which mark the period of another electoral cycle in Nigeria for it to crash. Thus, the prediction is of 2023 which still remains in the realm of conjecture.

Viewed objectively, I will agree that there is no event in recent history eloquent enough to demonstrate the true meaning of the saying; ‘Success is a lousy teacher that seduces the successful people to think that they cannot lose’, then the just concluded general election in the country. As the vast majority of the current public office holders notably entered the race to retain their positions with a similar mentality.
