Tinubu: A Presidential Disaster Waiting To Happen? – By Farooq A. Kperogi

Anyone who has watched Bola Ahmed Tinubu closely and dispassionately can’t help but notice that the man is not well. He is a walking psychedelic calamity. His endless verbal miscues and nonverbal cues constantly conspire to construct the profile of a man who is battling a troubling internal turmoil, who is held hostage by disablingly malefic inner demons. He appears to revel in his own self-created alternate universe that is always lightyears away from ours. When he speaks and walks, he strikes the observer as a man in a daze, in a cripplingly drunken or narcotic stupor. He slurs his words, slacks his attention, blanks out, has awkward gaits (which caused him to trip at Arewa House in Kaduna recently), and seems impervious to the world around him. That, for me, is the outward manife...

Why Buhari Might Jail Tinubu If He Wins – Odilim Enwegbara

Ahmed Bola Tinubu is arguably the self-proclaimed leader of the Yoruba in Nigerian politics. It couldn’t be more obvious than during the 2015 presidential election when he got many Yoruba to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari. Buhari so literally worshipped him that had Tinubu sneezed, Buhari would have easily caught cold. But once Buhari became president, the humiliation and side-lining of Tinubu began. The House speaker position Tinubu reserved for one of his political godsons, Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila, was lost to Yakubu Dogara. The Senate president post he reserved for Ahmed Lawan went to Bukola Saraki.
