Osinbajo’s Moves To Succeed Buhari Pitches Him Against Tinubu

win 40k and a night with me

By Temidayo Akinsuyi

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has his eyes firmly set on succeeding his prin­cipal, President Muhammadu Buhari, in 2023 and has already started moves to actualise his ambition, Daily Independent exclusively gathered.

This ambition, however, may put him a collision course with his political leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, former La­gos State governor and national leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), who nominated Osinbajo as Bu­hari’s running mate in Decem­ber 2014.

While Tinubu, who returned from London last week after a knee surgery has not formally declared his interest to run in 2023, one of his key associates had told Daily Independent that he will make his position known af­ter the APC national convention when a substantive leadership of the party would have been elected.

However, several political groups, the principal one be­ing the South-West Agenda for Asiwaju 2023 (SWAGA ‘23) has been canvassing support for him across the country.

Our correspondent spoke with several credible sources in the party who confirmed the development even though majority of them chose to remain anonymous.

According to one of them, who was a key member of Pres­ident Buhari’s campaign team in the 2019 presidential elections, Osinbajo’s interest in the race was buoyed by the pressure by many stakeholders in the party, including associates of the pres­ident who believe that he is the “best candidate to continue from where Buhari will stop in 2023”.

He said those pushing for Osinbajo also believe that hav­ing understudied President Bu­hari as vice president for over six years without showing any sign of disloyalty, Osinbajo will continue with the policies of the Buhari administration if elected president.

Speaking further, he said age factor and the clam our by some stakeholders in the party that if APC should zone the presidential ticket to the South, a Christian should succeed President Buhari. Tinubu is a Muslim.

“Osinbajo has his eyes set on becoming the president in 2023. There is no doubt about that. He has not come out directly but he is using some fronts as proxy. His belief is that the cabals in the presidency and those that matter in the North will not accept an Asiwaju Tinubu candidacy.

“Right now, some groups have started campaigning publicly for him and he did not restrain or disown them. Many people are not aware of this but the truth is that he has more or less relocated his base to Ogun State in Ikenne, thereby sending a signal that he is not a Lagosian.

“He has also set up some com­mittees to help him go round the country to assess the situation, his chances and the challenges he may face. He is also banking on the belief that the Christian community in Nigeria will solid­ly back him”, he said.

When asked how Osinbajo will cope given the fact that he has no political base especially in the South-West, our source said the only thing Osinbajo needs is the endorsement by President Muhammadu Buhari and Tinubu.

“It is wrong for anyone to say Osinbajo doesn’t have a po­litical base. Stop comparing the Osinbajo of today with the one that was Attorney-General and Commissioner for Justice in Lagos then. Do you know what it means to be the number two man in Nigeria? I think it is childish for anyone to say that a man who has been in office as vice president for more than six years and had also served as act­ing president doesn’t have politi­cal base. He has political base not just in the South-West but across the country”.

“The only thing he needs is the endorsement by President Buhari and blessings of Asiwa­ju. He may not get that of Asiwa­ju given the current situation but if President Buhari, who is truly the leader of the party anoints him, everyone including Asiwa­ju will fall in line”, he said.

When contacted, Laolu Akande, spokesperson to the vice president, said his principal had issued several statements that he is not focused on 2023 right now and that his position remains unchanged.

In one of the statements, Osinbajo had said he has not declared any interest what soever in the 2023 election, but he is rather focused on working in his capacity as vice president in the Buhari administration to address all the compelling issues in the country.

However, a serving senator in the South-West said that he is confident that Tinubu will not contest in 2023.

“The question is, will Asiwa­ju run in 2023? I strongly believe that he is not going to run. All these activities by SWAGA and others are just to create anxiety in the system. He knows they will stand in his way and he won’t get the APC ticket. So, he won’t want to throw away his money by contesting.

“All what they are doing now is to charge up the polity so that at the end of the day, everybody will pander to him and he will have a say in whoever becomes the presidential candidate. I’m 99 percent certain that he is not going to run. You can take my words to the bank”, he noted.

14 Warning Signs You Are Dealing with an Evil Person

win 40k and a night with me

Life would be a lot simpler if the evil people dressed in full black attire and smiled creepily like the witches in the stories, and the good people would dress in bright colors with a cherubic smile on their face! But no, life is a synthesis of endless contradictions and people wear masks that are difficult to break.

Evil exists and we don’t need theories to prove that, just a glance at the daily news is enough evidence. Murders, rapes, terrorism and what not! The common thing among all the criminals is their attitude – they do not care what happens to the world as long as their own needs are satisfied. This behavior may be a result of the environment they were brought up in, or as some theorists say the biological component does play a role. Experts reveal that the body releases oxytocin while reacting to something positive. While 95% of people conform to the norm, 5% do not feel the positive vibe.

Some black hearted people seem to make this their life motto. It is difficult to distinguish evil because it looks “normal”; however, if you are associated with such people, you will eventually feel the toxicity and suffering rising. Be aware and let go.

 

1. They are manipulative maniacs

Black hearted people build their lives around one goal and they can go to any extent to achieve it. They do not care what others think or if they are hurting or deceiving someone. They will pursue the path if it suits them. They will manipulate others to get their work done.

 

2. They mislead you

They use gaslighting to sow seeds of doubt in a person’s mind, making them question their own reality. They not only lie but twist the tale to turn your judgment in favor of them. You will inevitably believe them and come to wrong conclusions.

 

3. They are not trustworthy

All their actions are a master scheme to drive you towards their self-centered agenda. You cannot trust someone who will manipulate and mislead you at every step of the way.

 

4. They cannot see the reality

 

Rather, they will not see the reality if it does not correspond with their needs. They will subtly make others believe in their warped vision of life too, to fulfill their demands.

 

5. They always think they are “owed”

Black hearted people believe they are special and that the world is a “wish granting factory.” They think that being themselves is enough and everyone will cater to their needs because they owe them.

 

6. They demand attention

 

They believe the world revolves around them and want to be treated differently because they are worth it. They will demand attention as they feel superior to others, without noticing their flaws.

 

7. They are liars

They are compulsive liars and simply cannot speak the truth as it will crack their mask of deceit. They will keep lying to cover up for their lies.

 

8. They live a double life

 

They lead a double life by wearing masks to fit their role. If you are beneficial to their being, they will treat you differently and if you are not, they will not bother about you. Their personality too is molded by their desires.

 

9. They will not apologize

If you believe you are superior to everyone else, that you are always right and that everyone owes you the best things possible, you cannot just be humble and accept your follies. Black hearted people never apologize because they do not care for other peoples’ feelings and they simply think they haven’t done anything wrong to apologize for.

 

10. They create their own facts

They will try to get the upper hand by making other see things through their perspectives, thus working for their welfare. They will alter facts and establish them as real.

 

11. They do not value your time

Black hearted people put themselves before others and do not care for other people’s’ time. They are just the means to the goal they want to achieve. They do not waste their time for others but demand the same from the later.

 

12. They don’t feel guilt or regret

They think they are above everything else and so nothing makes them feel bad. They do not feel guilty after using others because only the goal is of importance, not other people’s emotions.

 

13. They will often hide information

They will have to make others blindly believe them and to do this they hide information. They will protect their mask by tricking people.

 

14. They are irresponsible

Black hearted people do not think of the consequences or the long lasting impact of their action as it is all-important to them. They will be reckless and not care for the mess they create. Once the goal is achieved they go for another.

On that fateful day, 17th of January, 1996, Ibrahim and his friends were going on a jolly ride from Lagos to Kano for a party and family engagement.

He was travelling in the Nigerian Air Force presidential Falcon jet in the company of 13 other friends when just minutes to the landing at the Aminu Kano International Airport, the aircraft crashed and exploded mysteriously.

Ibrahim was with Funmi, his Yoruba girlfriend and a younger brother of Aliko Dangote named Bello, now the richest black in the world.

Bello Dangote’s death was described as a major shock and huge loss with Dangote describing him as the closest person to Dangote in the group and a ‘great thinker and visionary.’

The crash shook the country, and even the most avowed enemies of Abacha sympathized with him.
