Lagos group salutes El-Rufai over anti-godfatherism position


A Lagos group under the auspices of Save Lagos Group (SLG) has applauded Nasir el-Rufai, the Kaduna State Governor, over his stand on godfatherism in Nigerian politics, particularly in Lagos State, declaring support to El-Rufai position; the group maintained that the godfatherism saga has eroded the state of finest governor in person of Mr. Akinwumi Ambode.

The group also declared that Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress(APC), is not fit to rule the country in 2023 as being aspired by him, explaining that if the Presidency zones the position to the Southwest, the current Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, was more qualified than Tinubu, his godfather.

It supported its position with certificate racketing of Tinubu tagged “CHICAGOGATE” which is still pending in the Court of Competent jurisdiction in the land, insisting that Tinubu still had the certificate saga hanged on its neck till today and it would not augur well for southwest region to push such a character forward for the position of President when the region has current Vice-President, who is a Professor of Law and Senior Advocate of Nigeria, SAN.

It added that Professor Osinbajo had garnered all the needed experiences in both the public and private spheres to be the president of the country in the nearest future.

According to the statement on Sunday signed by the convener of the SLG, Comrade Adeniyi, Alimi Sulaiman, after the group’s monthly meeting in Lagos at the weekend, the group commended the Kaduna State governor for his boldness and courage to take the bull by the horns to speak against Bola Tinubu on the subject matter as rape of democracy.

They described Tinubu as self centred leader, who only used enthronement of his political godsons in various political offices to enrich himself and his family members, instead of rendering selfless service to humanity as displayed by the outgoing governor of the state, Ambode.

They called on the courageous people of the Southwest and Lagos State in particular, to rise up against the domineering tendency of Tinubu by taking their destinies in their hands and put a stop to the ongoing political slavery in the region and Lagos State.

“It is high time for the well meaning people of the Southwest region and Lagos State to join hands together to uproot the modern day political slavery of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu. It is fascist idea for only Senator Bola Tinubu to be determined who gets what, when and how in the political space of the region vis a vis the state. This singular selfish action of Tinubu eroded the good people of Lagos State, the good works and selfless service of Governor Akinwumi Ambode for the next four years, “Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir el-Rufai had captured the feelings of Lagosians in his anti-godfatherism statement against the domineering tendency of Senator Bola Tinubu. The APC National Leader is just doing everything possible to put the Lagos State and entire southwestern Nigeria in his pocket in order to determine who gets anything, but God that set people of Isreal free from Pharaoh, would soon set the state and the region free from Tinubu’s hand. May God bless late Chief Ganiyu Oyesola Fawehinmi, in his grave, who exposed Tinubu’s Chicagogate then,” the statement said.

Speaking further on the recent lesser pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia by Tinubu and his cohorts, the group said that the pilgrimage was political and not for religion obligation.

The group therefore urged the people to come together to lead the struggle for the emancipation of the region and Lagos State from the hand of the present impostor.
