LETTER TO AKINWUNMI AMBODE..........THE ASIWAJU BOLA TINUBU WAY.

Posted: Updated:

One tree cannot make a forest. But if your name is Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the State is Lagos State. One tree can of course make a forest. The absurdity of that outlandish statement is not lost on me. But it is the truth, the sad truth and nothing but the sad truth. Let us be blunt in a matter of fact manner, democracy in Lagos State is Government of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu by Asiwaju Bola Tinubu for the people of Lagos State. That is the ABC to the puzzle of democracy in my home State. It has become the kingdom of the Jagaban of Borgu, the dazzling palatable megalomaniac colossus. Before which every knee shall bow. To intoxicated fanatics, Bola Tinubu is prophetic, moralistic and every word he utters should have some scriptural authority. So the body language of this great man points to Akinwunmi Ambode as the next Governor of Lagos State. And with the elections still months away, we are already celebrating the victory of Ambode. Because we know the only vote that counts is that of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. Lagos State has been turned into a conglomerate. Asiwaju Bola Tinubu is the CEO and Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN) was just a General Manager. This is the methodology of democracy under which we have come to love. EKO ONI BA JE OO. Fashola, was a good General Manager. His righteousness became self-righteousness. What we saw during his tenure was libertarian. A regime where you care about yourself and the masters that brought you into power. He undermined the heretical that you ought to care about the people. Forgetting that the fundamental goal of Government should be compassion for the people. What the people want from Government is not roads and bridges to nowhere. They want problems solved and opportunities created. For Government to concentrate on visible measurable realities. Fashola enriched and empowered the rich and the powerful with the money of the poor. His razzmatazz was a wrap speed journey into the farthest reaches of the universe, untethered to earthly concerns or most times even common sense. His regime did not delve sufficiently deeper into the problems of the masses. Everyone knows that education when done right is an equalizer, boosts productivity and enlarges opportunities. Education was never a cardinal program of his regime. Planting flowers to beautify Lagos was. To please the godfather, Fashola picked up abstract and unnecessary battles. Little wonder his aura has turned into odor. JAIYEOLA STREET is not here to bury Akinwunmi Ambode but to praise him. He is a man who is about to take off. A Yoruba adage goes thus: whoever takes for granted a dead body will incur the wrath of the demon. Eni fi oju ana wo oku, Ebora abo laso. So sir, the Almighty will be your Shepherd as you take on the challenge of leading Lagos State . " If I make my bed in hell,behold,you are there." Psalm 39:8. The question is not whether you are the next Governor of Lagos. In the name of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, you are. The question is not whether your road will be rough. It will. The question is not whether the people will kiss your ass;even when they know you are talking from your ass. They will. The question is, will Akinwunmi Ambode become the next Governor of Lagos State after Bola Tinubu? Can you rein in the power of the Tinubu cult? Can you bring the seat of Government back to Alausa from Bourdilion and stop the Tinubunisation of Lagos State? The wrinkle that Fashola over looked. Finally, will Akinwunmi Ambode stop Asiwaju Bola Tinubu from further feathering his nest? Can you tell your godfather, "enough is enough?" It is time to give Lagos State back to the people. Reminiscence! Isale Eko. The heart of Central Lagos. A place where all men were brothers regardless of their positions in the society. Iga Idungaran. The palace where the late Oba Adeyinka Oyekan kept an open door policy. Soja Idumota. Tinubu Square. LSTC buses. Eyo Festival. Gelede and Angere Festivals. Sakara Music. Great secondary schools like Igbobi College, CMS grammar school, St Finbars College to name but a few. Stationery Stores Football Club...... This was beautiful Lagos. The glorious past. Not the inglorious present where all roads lead to Bourdilion. And the only way is the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu way. Before our eyes everything solid is melting into air. What is felt to be evaporating is family, faith and community. Much more our cultural identity.No one in their right mind doubts that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu loves the people of Lagos State. And that he is knowledgeable about the politics of the state. But the question of octopussy given how much he has colonized the State, is a legitimate one. To do the will of the people, you have to put an end to plutocracy which encourages radical kleptocracy. Political power sir, can actually be used for good. Get to the people. Do not let them get to you. We crave for something and someone different. So are You the One who is to come or shall we expect someone else? For Demola Majekodunmi , Victor N. Amadi and Adaku Christian-Amadi congratulations dear friends. Count your blessings name them one by one. Count your blessings see what God has done. “Those of us placed in a position of leadership must be prepared to grasp the nettle If we unite in doing so, and if, in addition, we set a worthy example and a marat on pace in probity, unselfishness, and self-sacrifice, the people will follow, all too readily, in our footsteps.” -OBAFEMI AWOLOWO. — with Bayo Oyekan and 19 others.
