Lagos 2015: Remi Tinubu, Dabiri-Erewa for deputy gov

By RAZAQ BAMIDELE

As the Lagos State chapter of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) looks inward to search for credible successor for Governor Babatunde Raji Fashola (SAN), Daily Sun checks revealed that the party’s search has extended to include who becomes the deputy governor in 2015.

Since it has become a tradition in Lagos State to have female deputy governor, Daily Sun can authoritatively reveal that three topmost female politicians are currently on the ACN list. The three would-be deputy governor on the list, for now, are the incumbent, Mrs Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire, a current member of the House of Representatives, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa and the Senator representing Lagos Central Senatorial District, Chief Oluremi Tinubu.

Daily Sun, however, gathered from a party chieftain that “though, all of them are eminently qualified to become governor let alone deputy governor, the axis that produced the next governor would decide who would be favoured to occupy the office.”

Presently, the three names penciled down for deputy governor’s office scattered across the three senatorial district of the state. While the sitting deputy governor is from the West, both Tinubu and Dabiri-Erewa are from the Central and East, respectively. Aspirants being touted for governor also cut accross the three senatorial districts.

For instance, a fair complexioned serving senator, who was believed to be nursing governorship aspiration is from the East, a former commissioner, who served for about 12 years and who is now a national officer of the party as well as the most experienced senator in Lagos are from the West while Central may not be considered because the outgoing governor, Fashola is from the Central.

Although mum is the rule from the camps of the aspirants, Daily Sun can report authoritatively that the three women on the list are secretly making serious consultations and lobbying as well as going spiritual so that they would be the choice of the party at the end of the day.

    ACN is now a complete joke designed to bamboozle vulnerable and gullible Nigerians expecially yorubas with the believe that it is in line with Awo’s tenent.

    Intelligence implied that people were undemocratically hand picked by the powers to be.(this is dangerous).

    Nigeria is in trouble!

    GOD WILL HELP US IN THIS COUNTRY. ACN SHOULD NOT CLAIM TO HAVE OUR INTEREST BECAUSE POLITICIANS NA THE SAME. PROTECTING THEIR INTEREST IS THEIR MAIN PRIORITY.

    ACN should stop all these arrangee method of selecting candidates.All these Three women are not extra-ordinary except that they are related to Tinubu one way or the other.
    Lagosians will teach them political lesson in 2015 if they think that their voodoo is still working.Other parties should organise themselves and elect credible candidates for the next general election in order to offer Lagosians alternatives.ACN should know that Fashola will not be candidate hence they are not going to be telling us Lagos is working Fashola is working.

    Is ACN turning to family party? Nigerian should watch it, so its only Tinubu this and Tinubu that in Lagos? may good Lord help Nigeria and Nigerian.

    ACN is the property of Tinubu. So as the Managing Director and Chief exeuctive Officer, who will over rule his wife becoming the Deputy Governor or if he choose, to be the Governor.

    That is another Saraki, in and out. Unless the likes of Tinubu and many others are dead, the country cannot move forward. They will never get tired, until death smuggle its gasket into their bed room.

    Well, i have nothing to do with a tribal party like ACN.

    Tiumbu will not be tired of making money, after his brother-inlaw as govanor he wants to instal his wife as deputy come 2015 nawaa!

  9. ogbeni naija January 4, 2013 at 2:51 am

    Dabiri is just to camouflage to reduce tension it will eventually end up on Remi who will rule the state for another 8 years,after that Tinubu’s son inlaw will come from Ekiti and take over as Lagos state governor from Remi,he will rule for 8 years and finally the iya loja of Lagos will rule for another 8 years which will end their generational reign in Lagos before handing over Lagos affairs to their grand children.LAGOS HAS BEEN ENSLAVED.ALL THE TRADITIONAL RULERS HAS BEEN POCKETED BY TINUBU ,AFTER ALL HE HAS BOUGHT & PAID THEM FOR LAGOS WHATELSE CAN THEY DO?

    My people someone told me recently that before I mention some people’s names especially Bola Tinubu,I should first of all cover myself with the blood of Jesus because he has gone beyond what what we see and what we know.He is now next to Satan because he has been taking to the Satanic strong room and those that took him to the strong will later regret it because he will be too powerful for them to handle.

    You all this mumu, leave Tinubu alone if u are in his shoe u will do worst than that. Asiwaju ride on the sky is yr limit.

  13. Oyelana Olasunkanmi January 4, 2013 at 5:51 am

    @ Folorunso. Dont mind them. These ppl were being frustrated with the strong formation by ACN in Lagos State. If they were to be farmers, are they not going to arrange the hip to their side?

    It is time Lagos bid farewell to godfatherism! We serve you as governor Tinubu, your now in Senate, your sons and inlaws in high political post and now your wife coming as governor (as whoever will be elected will be killed and she will take over within six months!)! Haba? This is the appropriate time for opposition parties to come together and flush these barbaric implant out of Lagos. Although the oppositions are not better of, but at least lets have a taste of another government. Do we have to be slaves for ever? since 1999! Haba eko ti shuegbe ni?

    Oh, we have seen the reason why Funsho Williams was murdered in a cold blood. Those supporting evil in the society because a plate of amala and egufe will be served to them will definitely regret their lives in future.

  18. Gloria January 4, 2013 at 8:22 am

    Owerri am insuport of u .period we dont what!!!.do dey maen dt we dont hv yung politicians with model technices.kpalawo olo!!!

  19. ogbeni naija January 4, 2013 at 8:32 am

    Tinubu will be surprised that he will get worst than expected comes 2015 even from his party members and non party members.In fact he will be disappointed when he will find maggots and worms in the box of salt.His time will soon be up.

  20. Gloria January 4, 2013 at 8:35 am

    Olo we dont what.do they maen dt we dont hv young politicans with model techines

  21. achike January 4, 2013 at 10:46 am

    Is lagos state Tinubu’s property that they must have a representative?
    Are there no other qualified educated women politicians in lagos state outside the Tinubus?

  22. SAMPSON January 4, 2013 at 5:16 pm

    REMI TINUBU SHOULD NOT BE BECAUSE THE HUSBAND WILL BE THE NEXT VICE PRESIDENT TO GEN BUHARI SO WE NEED HER AT THE CENTER AS 2ND LADY TO HELP 1ST LADY MRS BUHARI,ABIKI DABIRI EREWA IS GOOD AND OK,UP ACN UP THE NEW OPPOSITION PARTY COMING ON BY MARCH TO SWALLOW PDP AND EVIL GOVERNANCE

  23. Muhammad Adio January 4, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    PEOPLE CAN’T YOU DO YOUR TWO PLUS TWO AND GET YOUR ANSWER CORRECT? LAGOS WEST HAS PRODUCED TWO DEPUTY GOVS. SARAH SOSAN AND ADEJOKE ORELOPE. BY CALCULATION SENATOR ASHAFA WILL PICK GOVERNORSHIP TICKET, HIS FROM LAGOS EAST THEREFORE ABIKE DABIRI CAN’T BE HIS DEPUTY BECAUSE SHE IS ALSO FROM LAGOS EAST. THEREFORE THE ONLY PERSON QUALIFIES TO BE THE DEPUTY GOV. IS OUR DEAR MADAM TINUBU. Q.E.D.

  24. FEMI AJETUNMOBI USA January 4, 2013 at 9:00 pm

    IT IS GOOD TO KNOW THAT WE HAVE CAPABLE WOMEN TO STEP OVER. THE HORSE TRADING IS BEGGING TO HAPPEN. IT IS A POLITIC AND NOTHING IS WRONG WITH GODFATHER. I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ONE IF I AM FORTUNATE ENOUGH.THE BEST CANDIDATE WILL WIN THE POST.LIBERIA HAS MRS.LEAF-JOHNSON AS PRESIDENT OF THAT NATION.TO THOSE WHO DO NOT LIKE IT PLEASE VOTE YOUR OWN PARTIES OR PARTY OF CHOICE AGAINST ACN.IT IS NOT COMPULSORY TO VOTE FOR ACN.THE PARTY IS BIGGER THAN ANY INDIVIDUALS AND BEING REPRESENTED IN NUMEROUS AREAS IN NIGERIA. IT HAS COME TO STAY EXCEPT ORDERWISE. IT WILL PDP RUN FOR ITS MONEY. I WISH ALL THE PROGRESSIVE PEOPLE THE BEST AND KEEP DOING THE GOOD WORK. THE WORSE ACN IS BETTER THAN THE RULING ONE. CHEERS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR.
