The name of the Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo will never be forgotten in the history of the Yorubas. Chief Obafemi Awolowo gave us water projects, free health service, free education, road construction, and other physical development programmes: Liberty Stadium, the Asejire Water Reservoir, Lafia Canning Factory, Cocoa House, First Television State in Africa, Lafia Hotel, Premier Hotel, not to talk of the many Farm Settlements all over the Region.

Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo used half of his life to serve his Yorubas people. His major goal was to make life simple, easy, conducive and comfortable for his people. Some of the works he did are what we are now enjoying and proud of.

When he was doing all these for his people they called him many names, names like a tribalist, arrogant, proud etc.

In this modern democratic dispensation, we have never seen a messiah like Chief Obafemi Awolowo. Many people have been pointing to the current national leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) also a former Governor of Lagos State, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the next leader likely to take after the late sage. The truth is, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu doesn’t qualify for this post. He has not achieved 10% of Chief Obafemi Awolowo’s achievements. Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu has not done any good or laudable thing that the sons and daughters of Yorubas are proud of. Many of the things he has done are for his personal and family’s glorification. Not in the interest of the Yorubas.

Tinubu has not done 5% of what Papa Awo did. Tinubu is greedy and selfish. He is not an ideologist but an egoistic destroyer of legacy, not a developer and thank God for stopping him. Chief Awolowo did not lie to the Yoruba Nation and what stopped him was when he was advised to go egoistic and punitive. That was what stopped him. Tinubu took egoistic and punitive as his main ideology in politics. That was why he cannot go too far. This is the reason he is stopped where he is now. I knew he would soon be stopped when he was politicking with the death of Papa Fasoranti's daughter. It was clear he would not go far. The Yoruba Elders say 'he who sold his people cheaply, will never get them to buy again , no matter how much he is ready to offer'. This is what destroyed the JAGABAN OF LAGOS. His political ideology of punitive goal for any that stands in your personal way of making money from any government is what led to his downfall. Politics without mercy but cut him down is what destroyed GAT. Politicians coming up today should learn from this. The same thing is what befell Ajumobi of Oyo State. Not doing anything for the interest of the people, steal all the money and raise those you want to raise financially and wealthwise, leave the rest of the people in the done drone to suffer and die. Yet you took an oath before God to improve the lot of the people generally. Is that what you did finally or you finished your terms leaving them more dejected than when you came in? Ask yourself. You want to go up to the Federal to perpectuate more evil? God will not allow that to happen.

Tinubu is business man, working for his personal pocket, hiding under the umbrella of Yoruba name. However, heaven is real.

Another anti- Tinubu campaigner. The yorubas are too wise to take you seriously. Tinubu is our leader. No one can rubbish him. This useless campaign will make him even more popular
