The social media was awash during the weekend with a poster from a group presenting the minister of works and housing, Babatunde Fashola and the governor of Borno state, Prof. Babagana Zulum as presidential and vice presidential candidate of an unnamed political party. More so, the poster was tagged the Nigerian Project 2023 and was reportedly signed by one Abayomi Mademaku as the convener. However, a report from Punch News made it known that the group said they will launch the campaign on the 2nd of October.
A statement by the media aide of the minister, Hakeem Bello made it known that Babatunde Fashola distances himself from the antic of the unsolicited support group, Fashola also said that the group neither contacted him nor had his consent in issuing the invitation, this made it clear that he denies the development and distances himself from the campaign poster circulating on social media.
You will recall that Babatunde Fashola happens to be a former governor of lagos state which also happens to be the home state of Bola Tinubu as one of the top presidential aspirants come 2023. This article will be discussing what Bola Tinubu can do in regards to the development, as it is such that cannot be overlooked because it has his stakes involved one way or the other. Meanwhile, a popular saying in the game of politics has it that there is always an iota of truth in every rumor, this is to say that Bola Tinubu is expected to do the right thing at the right time, and he should also ensure that lagos state is not divided ahead 2023 if truly he desires victory.
What Bola Tinubu can do;
Firstly, we all know that the game of politics is all about number, and it is the politician with more people that always have higher chances of victory during slating, this is to say that Bola Tinubu should be swift and diplomatic in his moves so as to aid his agenda, if a group of people can publicly flag of Fashola and Zulum for presidency, it is such that Bola Tinubu needs to stop if he doesn't want his ambition to be frustrated. Although, Fashola readily distanced himself from the agenda, and you will agree with me that it is not really enough to make Bola Tinubu sleep with his two eyes closed, it will also be wise of Bola Tinubu if he can make Babagana Zulum to also issue out a public denial, this will in return make the convener of the movement to stop, hence if Bola Tinubu can get this done, it will aid him in his stake ahead 2023.
Secondly, Bola Tinubu should see how he can make his personality strong and well accepted in his political party, APC. Although, the group in charge of the movement of Fashola and Zulum are yet to unveil the political party they have in plans to flag them with, hence it will not be wise of Bola Tinubu to watch them have a space in APC which happens to be his political party, he can achieve this by being loyal to the members of his party which will make them in return reciprocate loyalty to him and also aid his marketability in the party.
For things not to fall apart for Bola Tinubu come 2023, he is expected to be very diplomatic in his moves as the next general election is an opportunity for him to test the capacity he had built over time. More so, he should see how he can thwart political problems prior their occurrence, and consideration to the above stated points is such that can aid him in capacity building in regards to his ambition and also make him well grounded in lagos state and his party, APC.
