IRONY? Tinubu Tells Kwarans To End Godfatherism
The National Leader, All Progressives Party (APC), Bola Tinubu is the kingmaker of Lagos politics and unarguably the godfather of many.
His perceived stronghold on the politics and economy of many southwest states, particularly Lagos has dominated the 2019 elections in the region.
Ironically, he is preaching the need to liberate Kwara from the clutches of Bukola Saraki, in the forthcoming general elections.
Tinubu, a former Governor of Lagos, told the mammoth crowd at the APC Presidential Campaign rally in Ilorin, Kwara on Monday to free themselves from godfatherism.
Tinubu charged the Kwara people to take the advantage of the elections to liberate themselves from political slavery.
The APC chieftain, who delivered most of his address in Yoruba language, alleged: “It is a long time they have been mismanaging the state’s fund.
“Who is doing this? It is Bukola Saraki. We are here today to demand for freedom and liberation of the state.
“Today, we are here for Bukola Saraki. We are no longer his slaves,” he said
Tinubu noted that his party had nothing against the Senate President’s father, the late Chief Olusola Saraki.
“We pray that God shall repose the soul of the late sage, Olusola Saraki and grant him Aljanah Firdausi, ” he said.
He said with the massive turn out of people at the rally and the political revolution going on in Kwara, the state would be free from oppression.
“I know this is the celebration of your freedom, this is the celebration of the fallen of the Berlin wall and the end to oligarchy, the emperor that have enslaved Kwara,” he said.
Tinubu also educated the people on how to cast their votes appropriately for APC and to avoid rejected ballots.
The rally was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, who led other APC stalwarts including, Chief Bisi Akande, Abdullahi Adamu, the Party National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and others to the gathering.
Sen. Gbemisola Saraki, the younger sister to the Senate President and a member of APC was also at the rally.
