Bola Ahmed Tinubu:Courage Under Fire

By :Douglas Ogbankwa Esq*.@

Al Gore was Vice President of the United States .He was Vice President to Bill Clinton and narrowly lost the American Presidency to George W. Bush 11 .Just like Al Gore , George W. Bush 11 came prepared and planned for the job .The Presidency is not a personality, it is an Institution. It requires a whole lot of circumspection and preparation. Accidental Presidency is always a disaster. Consistency of purpose is the hallmark of a great leader and Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu , has been consistent in the AD-AC-ACN-APC Party Structure since 1999 till date .He has never decamped to another political party , instead he has built a party from winning just one State -Lagos State , to winning all the 36 States in the Presidential Elections won by President Mohammedu Buhari.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is an unusual character. He is a man of uncommon candour and profound courage .He has been on the campaign trail consistently for about two years now , but his detractors lie that he is not strong. They accuse him of almost every thing in the world , except that he did not take their wives .I have always found people who are vilified unnecesarily fascinating. There must be some thing very special about them that makes people villify them.Roses are found among thorns .Bola Ahmed Tinubu says it is his turn, people quiver , your Pastor in Church tells you it is your turn , you shout in ecstacy .

The world listens to a person that knows what he is saying and makes way for a person that knows where he is going .Asiwaju has ran a consistent campaign , building bridges across rivers and oases across deserts .He is a charismatic and visionary leader .A detribalised leader who abhors tribal diatribes. A Muslim married to a Christian , the last question he will ask you is "What tribe are you ?" , He is only interested in your talents and ingenuity.

I judge a man not by what he says , but by what he does. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has proven himself to be a transformational leader, when he was Governor of Lagos State. His in roads in Lagos is visible to the blind and audible to the deaf .His penchant for due process , made him have a running battle with the then President Olusegun Obasanjo over Local Government Funds and you know what? He defeated Obasanjo at the Supreme Court .

I am sure Bruce Willis had Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in mind , when he did the Hollywood Blockbuster *The Last Man Standing*; because that is exactly who Bola Ahmed Tinubu is .From Lagos State , Asiwaju made the then AD and later AC to win all South Western States in Nigeria, from where he *Against The Run of Play*,if I may borrow Olusegun Adeniyi's words , joined President Mohammedu Buhari , with the APC to defeat Good luck Ebele Jonathan-a sitting President.

As Nigerians go to the polls on Saturday , it is important we situate the issues and avoid Intellectual terrorism. Let us have an analytical conclave , put all the candidates in a scale and ask , which of them by his antecedents has the pedigree to bring the country to prosperity and progress?

People who give unverified statistics should show evidence of the existence of such grandiose figures .Telling Nigerians an over used cliche "Go and Verify", when none of the figures have been verified to be true, smacks of demagogy.

Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a fatalist-a firm believer in fate and what it brings .Our fate are in the stars .As we go to the Polls to vote for who will be President and Commander-In-Chief of the armed and unarmed forces , let us vote on verified issues and not rumours.Let us vote a man who has proven democratic credentials.Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is it.
