Jimi Agbaje: The Dark Looming Horse Who Will Topple The Jagaban Dynasty

🕔05:36, 20.Nov 2018

The Lagos governorship election 2019 was a nunc scitote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) until October 2018 when the bizarre dumping of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode for second term by his estranged godfather in one of the most dramatic rejection of a godson in Nigeria politics threw the race wide open. Sen Ahmed Bola Tinubu, the Jagaban of Borgu, the godfather of the Lagos politics backed Mr. Jide Sanwu-Olu, a political neophyte. Consequently, opportunity beckons on dogged and the stealth Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate, Mr. Jimi Agbaje, the looming dark horse to end a 20-year chokehold on Lagos by Tinubu, the de facto Capo D Tutti of Lagos state (to borrow the words of Gov Amosun of Ogun State). There are 41 candidates jostling for the seat of power in Alausa but the race is essentially between PDP and APC.

Lion Of Burdillion Versus Waziri Ilorin: Battle Of Titans And Salient Issues

Lion Of Burdillion Versus Waziri Ilorin: Battle Of Titans And Salient Issues

🕔13:43, 3.Sep 2018

At this auspicious moment in the chronicles of the current dispensation of the fourth republic has the saying; “those who live in glass houses should not throw stones”; been truer. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has been very vocal since the gale of defection of prominent figures hit the All Progressive Congress. As the national leader of the party and one who is known to be very circumspect in utterances on political issues, he has thrown caution to the winds, released a statement, “They Go Away Because We Go the Right Way” and has made many vituperation on different political podiums and gatherings. One wonders why the sudden rampant howling, one which smacks of extreme desperation and impetuousness. One may think that his obstreperousness in the face of the departure of powerful politicians like the Senate President Dr Bukola Saraki was of an altruistic inclination for the progress of his people and that of Nigeria given his history as a pro-democratic advocate before the convenient marriage of strange bedfellows in the sinking APC which delivered victory in the polls in 2015, but his grandstanding has been exposed in the face of the clash of the titans as hogwash.

With Nigerians taking sides, some dismissing Trump and others stating that what Trump said was what everyone already knows. I first heard the phrase ‘brutally honest’ after 2015 when Buhari made a scathing statement at United States Institute of Peace (USIP) where in response to a question in an interview, he quipped…
