Thanks @DemolaRewaju for your atticism & clarity on political cum historical facts. Let me clear the air on my position. First, I didn’t strategize for the PDP & have never met the leadership of the party in any regard. I strategized for the future of Nigeria with the President.
It has neither ethno religious coloration nor political partisanship. All I told him before the election came to pass and all we deliberated on happened just as forecasted. He became a winner despite the loss of the election because he meant well for all & value good counsel.

As wonderful as this idea is, it won’t win the election. The battle ground geopolitical zone is not SS or SE but the SW. If @Atiku can pick a formidable influential youth from the SW (Male/Female) it will make the difference. NOI can always serve in the Admin with impact.
Also, he may need to allow the record reflect that he is only running this time to deliver Nigeria from the current darkness that envelopes her by deploying his resources and political structures to that effect as a legacy and would not seek a second term.

When it comes to Money, Virtue is often defenestrated (virtually thrown out the window). The forth coming election would either be Won, Bought or Stolen. With the position of @inecnigeria in collusion with those bent on rigging the election with fictitious figures, this is clear.
90% (if not all) of the elections conducted under this “Regime” has been fraught with electoral fraud thus when opposition wins election it is declared inconclusive and rigged via an unconscionable re-run designed to disenfranchise the people. So a Win is out of the question.

Vengeance is a lazy form of Grief. ⛱
The simplest of tweets can be far more complicated than threads. This one right here can be a book yet barely scratch the surface of the expression. I’m simply saying, don’t confuse Vengeance with Justice the same way Anger must not be confused with Strength. ⛱

Your attitude and character is everything. If you can’t contain your hate and prejudices simply because of a tweet you read, then nothing else matters. You will always find anything you seek. If you want to be offended even a harmless emoji will set you ablaze. Watch it.
I really don’t know the motive of deploying hate towards people who see things differently. Changing a mind is different from having an argument. Persuasion takes patience, skill and insight, not force. You can’t insult me into supporting your sentiments. 🤔

I’m sore disappointed in the development coming from @OfficialAPCNg primaries in Bauchi. Where @alouibrahim92 was rigged out despite the people’s support in huge numbers. Thugs were deployed and voters were harassed. Result sheets falsified in collusion with party officials. 😞
This is how APC is losing their great potentials. All those I knew from back in the days of great sacrifices for fo CPC/APC have been frustrated out of the party. The few that managed to keep the faith are now being disincentivized. Where’s their automatic ticket despite loyalty?

Vestiges of Military Rule. Unless it’s a Presidential Convoy or Governor on the move where it is sane to officially close the road & open afterwards, I believe blaring sirens in traffic gridlocks & violating the rights of commuters is insane. This is a Democracy. #ReformPoliceNG
The violation of citizens rights in this regard will be prosecuted swiftly & it’ll cost the police dearly. The dire consequences of impunity of the police suffering from identity crisis will begin to help in restructuring the institution for better. U shouldn’t glory in ignorance

Smear campaign with falsehood is petty politics. People will always find some dirts to pull you into when they cannot present a superior argument at your level of dialogue. Politicians however need no veneration, but trying to create an absurd narrative to discredit is dumb.
Clearly in my view the primaries is between former VP HE @atiku and Senate President HE @bukolasaraki and the process of the emergence of either. We can only hope it is transparent, free and fair. Needless to say all aspirants are a million times better than the current disaster!

Everyday when I look at my messages across platforms (DMs, SMS, WhatsApp, etc) and I see requests from the very ridiculous to the not so urgent ones marked urgent, I wonder if things will ever get better having responded to such dutifully for 3years running. I however learnt...

I think we should cut our artistes a slack. Unlike in the States when a celebrity performs for a politician it mustn’t be seen as a shared belief in ideology. It is just a paid commercial. Avoid blaming them for the woes of such political party or politician. I may be wrong. 🤔
Morals you say...listen we are wired differently. Snoop Dog didn’t raised his kids based on the social construct you see in his music videos. Steve Jobs kids don’t use the iPad or have socialmedia accounts. Many TV stars don’t raise their kids in reality TV shows. It’s for others

We can always disagree because my ways may not be anything you are familiar with or theories I need you to validate. The things you hate me for today, you will praise me for tomorrow and be glad I didn’t pay attention to your derisive Tweets. You don’t see what I see. I’m not U.
I can always forgive your naivety and self loathing but please don’t accuse me of anything you don’t have evidence of. Avoid deploying pre-masculated & regurgitated inanities as tools of blackmail all because I’m not worshiping your graven image. That’ll get you blocked for life.

In Ethiopia, there is nothing like GRA. The rich lives with the poor and crime rate is very close to zero. The society is all inclusive and the country thrives with one of the best airlines in the world. It wasn’t even about oil which I doubt they even have. #UnshackleLagos
It’s time we make LAGOS all inclusive & open up new opportunities. Welders must return to their jobs & power must be fixed through affordable alternative energy sources for the common man. Our graduates need not be okada riders when opportunities are abound. #UnshackleLagos

Is it a wrap? Players are not even on the field yet. Why is FA populating the score board & preparing for closing ceremony?!🤔
Note that the two mysterious party handles of APC will be running different commentaries today as induced by factions. @APCNigeria declared its perspective already with an advert of Sanwo-Olu while @OfficialAPCNg will most definitely by taking its orders from the “Ass-hole Rock.”

For two weeks now I have held back from publishing on my public column on @nigeriantribune and medium. There’s so much to say and so little time. I also don’t want to force myself to water down what I feel deep within while avoiding heating up the polity. So stay with me.
In a small SW town, hundreds of years ago, a small business owner owed a large sum of money to a loan-shark. The loan-shark was a very old, unattractive looking guy that just so happened to fancy the business owner’s daughter.

There is no doubt some people will not escape eternal damnation. The serial shame on earth will never be enough. When people take initiatives to do what these haters can never do they call them frauds & allege they are seeking for their pocket, while keeping mum at societal evils
The moment such advocacy succeeds, the evil ones crawl out of their hatches shamefully to claim rights and demand compliance on how things should be done going forward. They try to blackmail genuine patriots into doing their biddings with the perceived position of valor.

Nigerians have evolved and they see through the smokes screen. Don’t get drowned by the noise of the mercantilistic griots hailing you on enough to take little things for granted. We know fake jerseys and see spelling mistakes. Things will be different now. We have Changed!
Stop hiring Monkeys to do strategic work. Nigerians won’t be fooled again. The number of zombies are dwindling and many are breaking the chains of mental blindness daily. Àdán tó sùn sí ìdí ọsàn, kò rí he, bèlèté odídẹrẹ́ tó lóun jí dé.

There will always be people that seem to be happier than you, finer than you, having more fun than you, getting their act together better than you, stronger in influence than you & are loved more than you. This shouldn’t put pressure on u to hate yourself & rub it off on others.
These are echoes of the pressure of the side effect of too much socialmedia. Once the likes and retweets starts winding down and this gets to you, know that you need a break. Scarcity creates value. Take off some time and let something happen to you in reality for content.

When all the knives are out for you & you decidedly hang yourself publicly, while busting several caps on the asses of your political party & opponent. This is no doubt a Mutually Assured Destruction. Tomorrow’s APC Primaries will be interesting.🍿 #AmboMeltdown#UnshackleLagos
Those who read my Sango story yesterday shouldn’t be surprised. I tried to tell you ahead what will happen and a few got it early while others will connect the dots now. It’ll only get worse. APC is not a credible party. They rigged all their electoral wins but things will change

"A Nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.

In a poll Saraki has 30 more votes than Kwankwaso. Kwankwanso has 60 fewer votes than Atiku. If the three of them have 420votes all together, how many votes did Atiku get? 🤔 #NewInecPuzzle#ShowWorking
