Between Tinubu and Buhari: The Modern Day Afonja and Alimi - By Reno Omokri

Read his piece below...
The present trials of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the colossus of the Southwest is not surprising to those who have vision. I saw it coming and that was why over two years ago, precisely on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, I wrote a back page op-ed on ThisDay newspaper titled 'From Battleground to Common Ground' and in that piece, I said inter alia as follows:

'A comrade is not for what you are for, neither does he share the same interests as you. A comrade is simply one who is against what you are against. In other words, you are bound by a common enemy.

The All Progressive Congress, is a party founded on this premise.

Those who are enemies of the President (Goodluck Jonathan) and the PDP gathered together to form a party whose foundation is their common enemy.

They share no ideological connection, neither are they friends. In actual fact, they may even hate each other, only that they hate the President and the PDP more and are wiling to temporarily suppress their hatred for each other in other to gang up against their common enemy.

In my experience, it is better to have a party built on common interests than to have one built on a common enemy. This is because as even a political novice will tell you, there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies only permanent interests.

Now, if the above is true, what would happen to a party that is built on a common enemy?

Parties built on this foundation last only as long as the enemy is in power. Once their enemy is no longer in power the party disintegrates.'


It does not matter if you hate Reno Omokri's guts, but ask yourself if what I said has not turned out to be the truth. 

In the space of just a month, Bola Tinubu has been deliberately mystified and treated with such contempt that even those who he considered his worst enemies find themselves feeling sorry for him.

But he should have seen it coming! 

The unraveling of Bola Tinubu actually began on the 3rd of June 2016, when President Muhammadu Buhari publicly and right in Tinubu's face told him at a reception the President held for members of the National Assembly at the Presidential Villa that the All Progressive Congress had no such position as a National Leader. 

I know this because a Senator who attended the function called me almost immediately after the event and told me about how the hall descended into almost pin drop silence after the President made that assertion. 

I can assure my readers that President Muhammadu Buhari would never have made such a remark prior to the 2015 elections. But who needs a piece of toilet paper after it has done its job!

That remark was the signal that sleeper agents  within the APC were waiting for to begin the unraveling of the masquerade.

Teaching him a lesson in Ondo state is only the beginning. Bola Tinubu's comeuppance is not yet complete in the eyes of his traducers.

And then look at the way he is portrayed in  Professor John Paden's biography of the president. Paden portrays Tinubu as a desperate power monger who kept throwing himself at Buhari only to be rejected at each instance. Tinubu, see how low you have fallen!

I do not know why Bola Tinubu is angry at Paden. Did he not read that this was an official biography?

Paden was not there during the horse trading. The book was written with the cooperation of President Buhari. The things he wrote about Tinubu were the accounts he was given by the President.

So Tinubu should call a spade a spade. President Buhari merely told the world what he really thinks of Tinubu. 

And look at all the men around President Buhari who got to where they are on the back of Tinubu. Has anyone of them come out to speak in his defense? Where is Vice President Osinbajo? He can blame Jonathan but cannot defend his benefactor. Where is Fashola? He can come up with excuses for giving Nigerians darkness but cannot speak up for his oga? Lai Mohammed is nowhere to be found. Perhaps he is too busy dressing up masquerades or looking for a parastatal under him to loan him some money!

At the end of the day, after all the terrible things the propaganda wing of APC said and did to Ayo Fayose and Femi Fani Kayode, who came to the help of Tinubu but the two men demonized by the very same propaganda machinery that Tinubu helped set up. 

And as for Tinubu, I cannot imagine why someone will write a book and insult you in it and still invite you to the launch and you agree to go simply because he is a president. 

Even worse, they asked you to write a review for the book and you did! Is this the same Tinubu that was so mouthy under Jonathan? Look at how he has become a chihuahua today. Lord have mercy!

Tinubu! Your Afonja too much! 

Did you not see what ex-President Goodluck Jonathan did with the so called Leadership Award. You do not honour a gathering designed to reduce you with your presence. As the late kakanfo MKO Abiola would say 'a man who allows his head to be used to break a coconut may not live to eat it'!

Even the well respected Pastor Osinbajo cannot even publicly come to your defense and tell the truth of how you helped him secure his exalted office. Yet he is the chief beneficiary of your generosity. 

My advise to you, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, is this: a woman who continues to make herself available to a man that only remembers her when he needs her services to satisfy his lustfulness should not be surprised when her own children deny that she is their mother! 

Finally, going forward, before labeling people like Ayo Fayose and Femi Fani-Kayode as enemies, remember that it is better to be insulted with the truth than flattered with a lie.

Who your advise epp? As for these APC guys, I can only congratulate them for boosting the strength of democracy when they unseat an incumbent. It's a feat for our nascent democracy but that is where the glory ends
Politics has always been a game of power and it's not uncommon to see godfathers reduced to puppets, enemies turning friends, betrayal coming to the fore and other unfriendly remarks thrown at friends and enemies alike. Who ever believed OBJ can be demystified? Now it's Tinubus turn. I'm very very sure that Buharis time is coming. Prior to the elections, the old man has been held in high esteem and seen as a god in northern Nigeria. Today, just call these Achaba boys and ask them of what they think of him.Clearly he isn't the man many people thought. It's just a matter of time before he gets his share of betrayal

Reno Omokri talks too much bullshit...too too much bullshit. I won't even use my words to describe his typical contradictions. I would use his own words from this write-up of his to show how contradictory he can be.

"In my experience, it is better to have a party built on common interests than to have one built on a common enemy. This is because as even a political novice will tell you, there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies only permanent interests."

and Reno is still here talking crap.
Getting former president Jonathan out was a common interest...it's simple politics (especially cos he was a very terrible and weak leader) and Mr.Reno is still here crying cos no more pocket money. Gerrarahia mehn.

Anonymous said...

The truth is bitter. Mr Omokri hit the nail on the head. When will these unfortunate youruba elders learn that there is no such thing as North - West alliance. I thought they would have learnt their lesson After MKO died and North-West Alliance produced Obasanjo. The West were like thanks but no thanks. The North West alliance works when there is a common enemy (the core south). Once the core south has been fully subjugated, they North-West alliance become bereft of any ideas or common sense.

Emeka Onuoha said...

Omokri, my dear

You forgot:

1 - The RE-ENFORCEMENT of the APC chairman from Edo State by the presidency precisely when Tinubu wanted to kick him out of that position.

2 - The withdrawal of the "forgery" case against the Senate chief and his vice by the presidency. Two guys Tinubu has been battling tooth and nail to fry or to get them to abandon their positions since the inception of this regime.

Thank you so much Reno Omokri...you have said it all. This is just the beginning of his fall, he is intellectually myopic, that is the reason he has gone through the path he took. I knew it would come to this...when you lead a party that is a dumping ground, where every failures and intellectually retarded persons from faceless parties just run to over night. Their downfall as people and a party is very near, you just wait and see.

What a shameful display against Tinubu. I like Tinubu personally but from the day he started supporting Buhari, I knew he will eventually become irrelevant, he is eating and dining with vipers. Good luck for him. And for those who Tinubu made Kings and Queens like osibanjo and fashola etc, they are cawords. Topical yoroba's DNA!

Yoruba politicians always think they are sharp, but the Hausa politicians have their mumu button. The Hausa have shown that they are the undisputed grandmasters of the Nigerian political chess game. They understand power and how acquire and hold on to it like Machiavelli. They play all the other tribes against each other and they use and dump the Yoruba elite like toilet paper (to quote Reno Omokri)and even eliminate them. Some of the past scenarios are:
1. Are Afonja was used, dumped and eliminated by Alimi in Ilorin.
2. Brigadier Adekunle Fajuyi was mercilessly executed by T.Y. Danjuma and his men.
3. Chief Obafemi Awolowo was used and dumped by Yakubu Gowon while his fellow Yoruba, Olusegun Obasanjo and MKO Abiola were recruited to finally rubbish him.
4. General Oladipo Diya was used, dumped and almost eliminated by Sanni Abacha.
5. MKO Abiola himself having outlived his usefulness to the Hausa, met his waterloo at the hands of Generals Ibrahim Babangida, Sanni Abacha and Abubakar Abdusalam.
6. Senator Bola Tinubu has been used and is being gradually dumped, but the complete agenda of Muhammadu Buhari for him is still unraveling.

Despite the abundant evidence of history, the Yoruba political elite will never learn or wake up to the reality, the peanuts they receive as underlings of the Hausa will continue to keep them hooked and make them feed on each other like Piranhas. It is a real sad situation. They are so cheap and will sell out each other for a mere bowl of pottage. But what of the succeeding generation of Yoruba youths. Theirs is a story for another day.

Tinubu should have expected all these if he is good in studying people . because every good politician should be able to know what people around him or her are capable of doing or changing to tomorrow when you are in 'CHANGE' era.

Ugh! What goes around comes around,my fellow folks, what Bola Tinubu did to his benefactors ? The likes of late Alhaji Gani Dawodu and Co! What became of them after they made him governor of Lagos state when he least expected! We do not need to consult Quran or Bible before we could know that no man is an island and in this world there is no permanent boss and changes are so constant.Law of retribution really exist.As for Fayose and his friends,let them continue dabbling into what concern them not,soon, people will discover that they are politically insane.

The problem with most people is their failure to understand Fulani mentality towards contractual engagements. That is why most people fall victims to Fulani treachery and manipulation. The truth is the Fulani owes allegiance only to his close relatives. So if you are from another tribe and dealing with a Fulani, you are on your own because your relationship is, at the best adhoc: Just for the purpose of the matter he wants your assistance to resolve. And if he pays you, in any way, for your services, that will be all he owes you. Thereafter, you are game unless he has a new need for your services. Non Fulani regard that attitude as betrayal but not so the Fulani. To them it is a game of survival of Fulani alone. No lasting commitment, loyalty, or allegiance. Just kick and pass or touch and go affair. In the present case, as far as Buhari is concerned, he owes Bola Tinubu nothing more than he has gotten and has not betrayed him. Why? Buhari needed Bola Tinubu's assistance to become President of Nigeria in return Tinubu asked to be made Vice President and given avenue to make as much money as possible to recoup his expenses. Bola Tinubu delivered as requested and Buhari also delivered as requested by offering Bola the Vice Presidency and Inland Revenue positions. Chikena! Relationship over. To your houses oh comrades. The problem here is the failure Bola Tinubu and many other Nigerians subjugated by Fulani Machiavellian tactics to understand the Fulani perception of their alliance constitutionality. They think that "kwana ngida" is marriage but to their Fulani counterparts "kwana ngida" is not marriage. Until Nigerians understand and guard against this Fulani allegiance mentality, the lamentations will continue.

Reno Omokri has spoken blunt truth, Buhari has used and dumped and discredited Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Did Tinubu not read the book? Although even Paden the author is an irrelevant retired spy and Campbell that reviewed the book was amonst those that administered MKO Abiola's fatal last cup of tea. Buhari has always been a deceiver, ask anybody still alive from his original era. Tinubu must have attended the book launch to confirm for himself with his own eyes that Buhari's perfidy was as reported. The most ironic part of Reno's analogy to the disintegrated Tinubu Buhari assembled union is that the Afonjas and the Alimis battleground for supremacy was Ilorin. The same Ilorin that Saraki hails from and holds as his political Base. Tinubu and Buhari chose to view Senate President Saraki as their common enemy, fighting the man with all their might, but could not fell the Senate or Saraki himself. Now that the centre has not held, they have abandoned the false charges they laid at Saraki, and are regrouping to fight themselves. Tinubu is a sharp politician, he won't go down easily. Buhari too is sharp. But this time, in choosing Ilorin as their battleground, they both failed in evil intent because Ilorin people remembered their own identitu, holding strong to their own son Saraki. The new Nigerian order may well emanate from Saraki the Alimi Afonja hybrid leader that has become the beautiful bride. Nigerians are suffering, all these politicians should just let Nigeria be.

APC sort out their issues in a matured way. They are not like scattered and petty PDP members. They have tried many strategies to bring down APC but it didnt work.
