Obanikoro Reveals Why He Disagree Most Times With Tinubu + Fashola
Immediate past Minister of State for Defence, Musilu Obanikoro who intends to contest for Lagos State Governorship elections in 2015 has said the present Governor, Raji Fashola who emerged under APC has done nothing but to inconvenient Lagosians. He also spoke in the same interview with Vanguard on why he disagrees mostly with his former boss and APC leader, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
There seems to be cold shoulder with your former boss, Ashiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu…
There are some fundamental issues that we disagree on. It is normal in life to disagree. It’s nothing personal. It’s about politics. I don’t like his politics. Sometimes, you have to be careful when you talk about your former boss so you are not accused of kiss and tell.
The battle for Lagos – what is your strategy; seeing that the soul of Lagos has been taken over by the ruling party in the state?
They have not taken over the soul of Lagos. As a matter of fact, they have violated Lagos. This time around, the people are fed up.
You can deceive people sometimes but you cannot deceive them all the time. I think their cup is full. And this time, they will meet their waterloo at the polls in 2015. People of Lagos are wiser; most of the promises they made were not kept.
To that extent, what is more important to the people is being violated every day – displacing people without alternatives from their homes, the markets – banning here and there, raising school fees for two years and realising few months to the election that it was a wrong thing to do and weakly run back to say ‘we have reversed ourselves’.
People can see through all that; that they are not sincere-that immediately after the election is won sincere – that immediately after the election is won again, they will go back to their old ways. The arrogance in government, today, is unparalleled in the history of Lagos State.
