I honestly don’t get why Tinubu is acting surprised that Buhari has no plans to support him to become President in 2023. This is a man who carried Buhari on his head like an alaaru in 2014 and 2015.
Tinubu was Buharis besto during the period where they used all resources at Tinubu’s disposal to wage war against the then ruling PDP and president Jonathan.
Whether it was the civil society or the media Tinubu was the champion of operation demonise PDP and GEJ, a man who Tinubu himself had benefited from in 2011 by all accounts.
After Buhari emerged in 2015, he dumped Tinubu and for a good 3 years their relationship was practically non existent.
In fact I heard from many quarters that it was not even Tinubu that nominated many of his people as ministers. But as I saw a lot of his cronies in the ministerial list I refused to believe it.
It was not until 2018 when elections were drawing near that Buhari rekindled his friendship with Tinubu.
He invited Jagaban to the villa where they broke brrad and the rest as they say is history.
I recall quite vividly Tinubu saying after these meetings that he has told Buhari that he will go again and that he is with him.
In my own small mind…I was like wait ooo. Is this guy not seeing that Buhari is what is known as use and dump.
But I was like Sola what do you know. We are talking about a whole Jagaban, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former senator, former 2 term governor…he can’t be this stupid. Na your brain no dey work.
And so I left it.
Buhari, a man who never opened his mouth but people insisted he has an Igbo cook, driver and son in law.
He never opened his mouth but people said he would turn 1 naira to 1 dollar. He never opened his mouth and people swore he would build 4 refineries in 4 years.
Buhari never kept promises he made to Nigerians. He never fought corruption. He never fought insecurity. He never led from the front. He never fixed the economy. Yet einstein Tinubu, the political maestro somehow believed he would hand over to him based on a verbal promise.
Tinubu did not complain when Buhari faiked to keep his promises to Nigerians. Instead he kept on telling Nigerians that Buhari was doing well at every given opportunity.
How does a political gladiator like Bola Tinubu who many fall at his feet and worship not have the capacity to add all these together to know that Buhari was not trustworthy?
How did he not figure out that Buhari had absolutely no regard or respect for him?
How do we even begin to explain this…..
The Yoruba nation has been disgraced by a self styled leader of all Democrats across all political parties.
The greatest 419’er has been 419’d!
