Tinubu the most influential politician in Nigerian polity

Many politicians need to study this man and aim to imbibe some of
his qualities!
1. Prof Yemi Osinbajo, SAN was Tinubu’s
Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice. He is today,
Nigeria’s Vice President.
2. Rauf Aregbesola was Tinubu’s Commissioner for Works. Today
he is serving his second tenure as Governor of Osun State.
3. Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN was Tinubu’s
Chief of Staff and successor in office. He is today Nigeria’s
Minister of Power, Works and
4. Alhaji Lai Mohammed was Tinubu’s first Chief of Staff. He is
today, Nigeria’s Minister
of Information.
5. Babatunde Fowler was appointed by Tinubu as Chairman of the
Lagos State Internal Revenue Service. Today, he is the Executive
Chairman of the Federal Inland Revenue Service.
At the National Assembly, there are countless
“Tinubu boys” who have occupied and are still
occupying seats till today. Since 1999, the Tinubu camp has
produced almost 98% of the members of the National Assembly
from Lagos State.
Forget politics, this man is a political enigma.Rewind to 1999, I am
sure most of us
have forgotten the names of the People who were elected
Governors then. Some of them have gone out of circulation. Some
are gasping for breathpolitically.
Indeed, most of them are no longer
relevant today. Who still remembers Mbadinuju of Anambra State,
Jolly Nyame of Taraba,
Segun Osoba of Ogun, Attahiru Bafarawa of Sokoto, Achike
Udenwa of Imo, Victor Attah of Akwa Ibom, Orji Uzor Kalu of Abia?
That one has lost two consecutive senatorial elections.
But Tinubu has not only managed to remain extremely relevant, he
has continued to largely control Lagos politics. Not only that, he
manages to carry his boys along and today they occupy critical
positions in our national life.
Take it or leave it, Tinubu is today, Nigeria’s
most powerful politician. It didn’t just happen by chance.
He worked very hard for it. Very very
hard.The hallmark of a true leader is not just the ability to rule well
but also the ability to nurture and groom his associates.
Some will say he is the JAGABAN. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. many Love him, some love to hate and a lot more hate to love him.
