#SoundOff: Tinubu’s Money And Power Grab Landed Nigerians In This Mess

Asiwaju Tinubu’s wife and daughter are jumping upandan [up and down] shouting marginalization, complaining that President Muhammadu Buhari is not returning their phone calls and texting them back! Who cares?

As Nigeria toddles to her knees under the worst administration in her troubled history it is important for me to say this:

Southwest politicians and their two-faced intellectual vuvuzelas put us in this pickle of a mess. They are the ones that sold Nigeria for a mess of pottage.

We are in big trouble today because of a power grab gone awry. Please do not forget this, do not forget this, unless you want history to repeat itself.

Asiwaju Tinubu and his pocket PhDs knew about Buhari’s priors but they did not care. They just wanted money and power, Nigeria be damned.

Repeat after me: You were scammed. Ntoin.
