2023: Tinubu’s Original Sin That May End His Presidential Ambition. It is a common saying that whatever has the beginning must have an end. The rate that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is being mocked by the Yoruba’s is quite annoying, it was gathered that just of recent he had disrespected the most centralized monarch in the Yorubaland.
This is actually considered an oddity by most Yorubas, simply because Yoruba is the most accentuated Nigerian race that is culturally and morally inclined of which Bola Tinubu is its notable son, thus he ought to know all the embodiment of the race how come he now fail to acknowledge it.
It happened that Bola Tinubu and his political coteries, alongside some other notable kings, are present at the coronation of Oniru in Lagos state on the 6th of September 2020, and on the appearance of Ooni Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi the entire people had risen to their feet to welcome the prestigious king, but Asiwaju Bola Tinubu remains seated, this was odious to the calibre of Ooni and thus it generated momentous criticisms by the entire Yoruba race both within the midst of the Yoruba elites, the youths and the populace at large.
Numerous people considered this to be too egregious for Tinubu who was known to be a protege of APC, and who was formally known for his humility during the days he sought for the post of a governorship aspirant in Lagos state which he acquired with an accidental two terms, and later metamorphosed to the seat of the APC national chairman; a post that supposed to be held by the Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Abraham Adesanya, or Adekunle Ajasin who are all late now.
In accordance with the Yorubas cosmological belief, you must pay homage to whom it’s due, during the period Ooni appeared Tinubu could have honoured him by standing, what can we called the gesture of Olusegun Obasanjo who prostrated before him(Ooni) at least Obasanjo is old enough to bear Tinubu as a child, but Obasanjo believes he does not prostrate before Ogunwusi but he expresses love for the dignity of Oduduwa; the progenitor of Yoruba race, this is what Tinubu ought to have done before his action sparks castigations.
Truth must be told, once Tinubu has to idolised his dignity to this level, it’s obvious that when he becomes the president, he will never wish to lose his dignity for the fickleness of such a little boy like Ooni Ogunwusi, and thus the Yorubas could rather bring him down instead of vilifying the most centralised king.
Another pertinent reason is not far-fetched, Tinubu has always appeared as a betrayal to the Yoruba race, he was once an advocator of the Fulani’s, during his condolence visit to Pa Fasoranti whose daughter was murdered by the Fulani herdsmen, Tinubu spoke in the defence of the Fulani marauders on the spate of Pa Fasoranti’s daughter who was murdered he spoke thus: ” I don’t want to be political, but will ask where are the cows? If by that he means that the crime of murder could not have committed by Fulani herdsmen because there were no cows at the crime scene, it means he has reached his end of reasoning.
While it was easily discernable by the expressions of the eyewitnesses, that the killers are truly Fulani herdsmen.
It is only a masochist that will never pronounce the truth that Tinubu is truly power-drunk because all is support for Fulani people is to actualise his mandate by supporting whatever Muhammad buhari is doing and that is where he missed it.
Tinubu needs to think twice, as he may be jettisoned even before then by his Yoruba people because of these his malfeasance conducts, and all his present dispositions have proof that he may be more recalcitrant when he finally acquired the presidential seat.
