Tinubu is still in London and before he returns to Nigeria, a lot of things would have happened. But he may not have to panick because he can reliably enjoy the services of some top politicians who would be ready to run errands for him and serve his political interests in the APC.
While he is still in London, Mr. Tinubu may be rest assured of loyalty and support of the Kano State governor, Mallam Umar Ganduje. The Kano State governor has proved himself to be a worthy political friend of the former Lagos State governor, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Recall that Ganduje was instrumental to the last birthday colloquium of the former Lagos State governor. Tinubu wouldn't have gone to this extent of taking his birthday celebration to Kano if there was no good rapport between him and Ganduje.
Secondly, Mr Ganduje took from his time and resources to fly to London to check the ailing national leader of the APC. The implication of this is that Ganduje would always be ready to work for the interest of Bola Tinubu.
The second politician who would be available for Tinubu at all time is the Lagos State governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu. There is no way that Sanwo-Olu can take any step beyond the former Lagos State governor. At all time, the governor would be at the forefront for the interest of Bola Tinubu.
Rotimi Akeredolu is the most surprising politician that would be ready to work for the interest of Bola Tinubu. Sometimes it is thought that Akeredolu would rather tilt towards the Ekiti State governor, Kayode Fayemi. But recent events in the political arena have pointed to the real plan.
Mr. Akeredolu gave some honours to Tinubu after his trip to London to check Tinubu. Fayemi was available at that time. And the statement made by the Ondo State governor indicated that the governor would be available for Tinubu at all time. Hence, it can be concluded that Akeredolu would be working for the interest of the former Lagos State governor.
The current minister of youths and sports, Sunday Dare, can also work for the interest of Tinubu in Oyo State and at the national level. Mr. Sunday Dare, the top minister, is a powerful politician from Oyo State and he can't just forget the good things Tinubu did for him.
Tinubu needs to have some strong influence in Oyo State chapter of the APC. He would have supervised the whole process, but in his absence, Mr. Sunday Dare can be trusted for the whole struggle. Hence, before Tinubu is back, Mr. Sunday Dare can be of help.
