Senator Rochas

Owelle Rochas Okorocha, the Imo state governor, has turned a laughing stock among his people.

Okorocha was greeted with scorn and unprintable words, following a statement he made.

According to the governor, he stands the best chance of becoming the first Igbo president Nigeria will ever have. Okorocha who is a chieftain in the ruling APC, said this when he spoke to newsmen at the state government house in Owerri, the state capital on Friday,  August 9th.

”I stand a better chance of making the Presidency in 2023 but my greatest challenge will come from the Igbo. It is our character. It will be a foolish thing to imagine that the Igbo will support me” he said

Okorocha went on to say that the Igbo political class has the pull-him-down syndrome where they never support or believe in anyone from their region. He said the support he requires to achieve his presidential aspiration will come from other regions.

    The man is an irresponsible day dreamer. He is right about one thing though, he will be foolish to expect igbo people to support his presidential ambition. Of course we will not. We have better materials from Igbo land.

No matter how shrewd a businessman is, he will still shoulder at the sight of real suffering.

This is a fact which Allen Oyenma, the Chairman of Air Peace is aware of.

Admired by some, he is also hated by people who feel a true and successful businessman should be a patriot.

His road to being a patriot, however, stated when he promised to fly Nigerians free from South Africa.

However, his confirmation as a patriot was when he burst into tears while addressing the passengers aboard his Air Peace plane which landed in Lagos State on Wednesday, September 11.

Dino

The number of time a man falls is irrelevant, it is the number of time he is able to rise that matters.

Senator Dino Melaye is indeed a fallen man presently, but will he be able to bounce back?

Loved by his people, he rose from the lowest of political arrangements to the House of Representatives. From the House of Representative, the man was elected to the Senate.

While his first term as a Senator under the protective arm of Bukola Saraki was a roller-coaster, his return has proven to be something else.

Removed from the Senate by a tribunal, Melaye’s hope of maintaining some political relevance by emerging the first citizen of Kogi State was dashed when he lost the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) gubernatorial primaries to Engineer Musa Wada. In the lowest political ebb imaginable, the chance that Melaye will be able to bounce back is a common topic of discussion.

Published

Seyi

If wishes were horses, even beggars would ride. Indeed, the saying is a popular one, and Seyi Tinubu is familiar with it.

But it appears that the young man would rather be ‘Seyi In Wonderland’ than accept reality.

Though there had been talks of his being positioned by his father, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to become the governor of Lagos State in 2023, the talks have been considered mere speculations.
