You can never beat Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu in the game of politics. As a matter of facts politics runs in his blood.

That is why right from the time that he had entered fully into Nigeria politics after the regime of General Sanni Abacha, he has always have his ways.

Looking at his achievement so far, especially in taking a new political party that is just about two years old to contest against another party that has been in government for 16 years and win at presidential level is not a small feat.

It is obvious that many people don't like him, hence they are always eager to criticize and antagonize him at all fronts.

The truth of the matter is that, whichever way one might look at it, Tinubu cannot be ignored.

He has set a record, and has succeeded in changing the political landscape of Nigeria to some extent.

The recent happenings in APC party, his party, have made many watchers to predict his end, and that of his political ambitions.

This is so because with the move of president Buhari to refuse to accept the leadership of Adams Oshiomole whom Tinubu has planted as the chairman of the party, people believed it is finally over for the Yoruba leader.

Everybody knows that Tinubu who founded the party wants to have full control over it without making it too obvious.

He has been doing this in the south west and getting away with it.

His choice of Oshiomole as chairman is to ensure that all machineries are well in place by the time he announced his presidential Ambition for 2023.

As events have turned out now, the situation seems to have gone out of his control, people were expecting to see a defeated man, but trust the Jagaban of Africa, you cannot box him to a corner, you cannot beat him at the game that he knows how to play very well.

People have been expecting him to make a public statement regarding what has been going on, but by the time he spoke, he shocked all the political Nostradamus who have predicted his fall.

Tinubu told everybody that he has not planned to run for 2023 at all.

He said those that are saying that he has failed are only making a conclusion about an ambition that has not been born.

He said he has preoccupied himself with how the party can help the present government in forming the right policies that will make things go well for the people of Nigeria.

He thought he has sacrifices a lot for the party, more than what anybody had done.

He said he is ready to abide by the present outcome, as long as the party continues to toe the line of democratic and progressive politics, and urged all the party members to follow suit.

Many people don't agree with Tinubu in what he has said, they believe that the Jagaban is at his game again.
