Man shares his opinion on Bola Tinubu receiving Guinean President instead of Osinbajo

I found an article from social crusader and community activist, Prince Emmanuel Ohai which he shared on Facebook very interesting and thought to bring it here to find out what you guys think. In his piece, Ohai queried why APC national leader Bola Tinubu was the one to receive the visiting president of Guinean, Alpha Conde in Lagos yesterday May 26th in the absence of Buhari instead of the VP-elect, Yemi Osinbajo. He raised many other penitent issues. Read his article after the cut and tell us what you think...
Here is how a reputable Nigerian online news outfit reported the visit to Nigeria of Guinea's President Alpha Conde.

"President Conde will be meeting with top Nigerian captains of Industry in Lagos in an attempt to lure investments to his mineral-rich country. He is also expected to hold a private session with the National Leader of the All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu"
UNQUOTE: elombah .com

Now, I do not know why in the absence of the Nigerian Government officials, the leader of APC and God Father of President-elect Buhari, Chief Bola Tinubu was receiving foreign head of state at the VIP wing of the Murtala Muhammad airport. Aside from the obvious national security issues raised, there's concern that those we elected are stooges of the vested interest. Granted that the President elect is out of the country on a private visit to U.K. Why wasn't the Vice President-elect Pastor Yemi Osinbajo not the one welcoming this visiting head of state?

In recent news, a PDP Stalwart Kashamu Buruji's home was and is still beseiged by officials of Nigeria Drug, Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) trying to arrest and extradite him to the U.S. to answer charges related to trafficking of heroin into the United States.
Even though Buruji's party is People's Democratic Party, he might as well be a member of All Progressive Congress. I know some reading this may be naive enough to think that there are no Kahumu Burujis in APC. Also the gullible ones reading this, especially the ones that voted for this kind of CHANGE may think the "Burujis" in APC have been banned from having access to foreign heads of state or are banned from using the proposed "Bola Tinubu Airport" in Lekki.

I know its depressing to note that the possibility exists that an airport may be named after Jagaban while all Awo got was a University named after him. Very sad day indeed.

In an advertorial in a full page National Newspaper after the results of the Presidential elections were announced, Buruji had in an unprecedented fashion heaped praises on the leader of APC as his hero and the undisputed new leader of the Yorubas (New Awo)
When I saw that advert, I was not surprised because both Chief Bola Tinubu and Kashamu Buruji have one thing in common.
Both had been indicted at some point for trafficking heroin by the District Court of Northern Illinois, U S.A.
While we are still on the subject of having things in common. The visiting President of Guinea and the incoming APC Government led by Rtd. General Buhari have both enlisted former British Prime Minister Tony Blair as their "unpaid" adviser.
Also, the country of Guinea has been under the threat of Latino drug cartels that are seeking new West African client states since their key smuggling route to Europe had been destroyed by French military action in Mali.
Rtd. General Buhari who himself is not squeaky clean considering his involvement with the Emir of Gwandu's 53 suitcases but a stand-up "guy" with upright character was in my humble opinion deliberately sidelined by the Jagaban in this private business talk with the visiting President of Guinea. It is also my opinion that the side-lining of the Vice-President who is a Pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church by Jagaban was deliberate. We all know that as a pastor of the redeemed Church, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo may be averse to some kinds of shady business, reason why he may have been sidelined in these talks with President Conde. I am not saying that Prof. Osinbajo is squeaky clean but I am sure you get my drift.

Right now, I won't be surprised if the construction of the Lekki Airport is intensified and the completion within the next couple of years. That too in my humble opinion will be a deliberate attempt by Jagaban to reduce by half his travel time by road to Murtala Muhammad to receive visitong foreign dignataries or sidelines f you are an un-apologetic freedom fighter for truth, you might conclude its a modern way of by-passing the Security at the Murtala Muhammad airport. 

The PDP never had a dominant leader and God-father like Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The closest person was an Octogerian in the person of Chief E.K. Clark. Very un-faur to try to draw any comparison between the two. For one, E.K. is a statesnan who served hus country well. He played the role of confidant and mentor to outgoing Presudent Goodluck Jonathan. Say what you like about E.K. Clark, he would never have been emboldened to receive foreign head of states while side lining Vice President Namadi Sambo.

If this is what we voted for.... so be it. And if it is not the decent thing to do is what I am doing right now. I am not a soothsayer but I have a feeling we will be doing a lot of this in the next 4 years or so.
Finally, may I seize this opportunity to wish the President-elect Goodluck in his onerous task of fulfilling his campaign promises such as making a barrel of crude oil sell for $100; paying unemployed graduates 5,000 a month for 2 years; making the exchange rate for $1 to equal 1 Naira, to scrap the Presidential fleet etc.

May God bless Nigeria!
