2023 Presidency: “There is a Plot to Use and Crush Tinubu” – Ex-CBN Deputy Governor

A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, as revealed that there is a plan to ‘use and crush’ the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is rumoured to have interests in becoming the nation’s President in 2023.

Speaking to Punch, Mailafia explained that Tinubu was gifted in discerning talents and mentoring them to leadership roles but has been “abjectly naive.”

He revealed this when he was asked to comment on a statement credited to Nasir El-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state, on zoning arrangements for the office of president.

Mailafia described the governor of Kaduna as “a man of ambition who is susceptible to grand self-delusions of the order of Bonaparte.”

“The 1999 constitution does not require ‘zoning’ as such. However, I believe that evolving constitutional conventions and norms lead us ineluctably in that direction,” he said.

“Governor Nasir el-Rufai is evidently a man of ambition, and often susceptible to grand self-delusions of the order of Bonaparte. Obasanjo in his memoirs describes him (el-Rufai) as someone who is loyal only to himself.

“At a dinner lecture in Lagos recently, he fired salvos at the lion of Bourdillon, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. The latter, we all concede, has this extraordinary clairvoyance and percipience for identifying talents and mentoring them for leadership. But Jagaban Borgu has been abjectly naïve.

“He does not know that they just want to use him and crush him. He would be wise to be wary of those whose traditions of rulership allows them to give their daughter to you in marriage only for the sole purpose of finding out your innermost weaknesses, the better to destroy you.”

He highlighted that Tinubu does not seem to understand “the kind of political animals he is dealing with.”

“He doesn’t realise that the game-plan is to exploit to the fullest his political and financial capital and to forebear with him until such a time as they are in a position to run him aground,”.

He added that Tinubu has the right to aspire to become president but “the north will not relinquish power any time soon.”

      1. Sam what a rubbish you are talking about, how did Tinubu brought nigeria to this mess. If you want to talk about Tinubu make sure you know what to say about him because he has always been for the goodness of that country. Now for the north its high time for them to let go the power to the south west period.

    1. Tinubu blindfolded himself because of his ambition! He betrayed the whole of southern Nigeria because he wants to be president! He doesn’t even know that he’s not generally loved by the West talk less the east! He’s living in a fool’s paradise If he thinks he’s going to be president of Nigeria! The signs are already there that he’s been dumped! I thought he was intelligent enough to know that, but it’s a pity he doesn’t know! He’s swimming in darkness!

  1. You are entitled to your opinion, that Tinubu that you sees as an idiot, and is nit aware of all this your used and dump will surprise you, El-Rufai will fall into the same position that led Atiku to where he is now, it is a common understanding that many politicians of northern extraction, sees themselves of capable to do and undo, it was this mindset that led Atiku into believing that he can easily remove Obasanjo. If you think Tinubu is not in the know to the high stake gang up against him, then you had better been informed, the harder they will come the harder they will fall, including those who are ethnic biggots who are voiving out for the likes of the El-Rufais to be aware of Tinhbu’s plan according to them, but they will be shocked

    1. Jagaban is well aware of all this,and He has planB in place to deal with scumbags like El-Rufai, and even if Buhari gets swollen headed to play games.that will be his. Albatross, The Lion will have his meat for dinner..

    2. TINUBU IS NOT BEST ANSWER FOR NIGERIA WE WILL NOT WANT TO COME AND NIGERIA AS HE POCKETED LAGOS STATE. HE WILL NOT WIN ANY ELECTOON AGAIN IN MIGERIA BY THE GRACE OF GOD

  2. GOD REALLY HATES THE BLACK RACE.
    A FROG LOOKING CRIMINAL DRIVEN AWAY FROM USA IS THE NEXT KLEPTOCRAT IN LINE AS NIZOORIA’S ZOO KEEPER?
    TUFIAKWA!

    1. Which god are you talking about, anyways, it is “ELECTOON” you said he will not win AGAIN and it is in MIGERIA” not in Nigeria. The undisputed fact is that Tinubu is the father of the modern Lagos, and today Lagos is the 5th economy in Africa. Today, even Tinubu’s haters cannot do but live and do business in Lagos.

    1. Smart as Tortoise is, it is not as smart as Snail. While Tinubu may look like smart person at first, nevertheless he would be outsmarted as time goes by.
      Remember that MKO was greatly used against his own people and he spent so much money, for the same crooked users, far more than what he spent for his own people. Nevertheless, the same users blocked his Presidency, locked him up and eventually killed him.
      Tinubu, be warned.

  3. It is quite unfortunate for people to start positioning themselves for the post of presidency. May God help us. So quick, the kidnapped Leah and Chiboko girls are forgotten.
    My opinion, Tinubu is greedy for he might be knocking on heaven’s door. He should shelve his greedy idea of 2023. He does think that he is a Nigeria king Jagas. They have brought Nigeria to rubble and should all ask for forgiveness.

  4. SENATOR BOLA TINUBU WILL BE THE WORST PRESIDENT FOR OUR GREAT COUNTRY NIGERIA THEREFORE WE WILL NEVER BE FOOLISH TO VOTE HIM AND HIS INTENTIONS TO BECOME THE PRESIDENT WILL KILL APC AS A PARTY AND NOT ONLY THAT WILL ALSO JEOPARDIZE ALL GOOD WORK OF PRESIDENT BUHARI. HE CANNOT COME TO KILL US ALIVE AS HE KILLED AND STILL KILLING LAGOS STATE. IN FACT, HE IS A DICTATOR, SELIFISH, ARROGANT, DISHONEST AND AN UNSATISFIED PERSON. TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE HE HAS NO GOOD RECORD TO BECOME ANYTHING IN THAT COUNTRY BUT UNFORTUNATELY PEOPLE ARE JUST WORSHIPPING MONEY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH LET’S NIGERIANS WAKE UP!

  5. If the northerners are wise they will apply understanding…& to apply understanding is to give complete support in favour of Tinubu…He’s wired naturally to know the political flow before time ,thus d direction in which lines would fall in places for the party he leads. I would liken him unto the Christiano Ronaldo of our time who hadn’t played only I’m a single club to win leagues challenge, championships, tournaments & medals…

    ” If the northerners wanted to be sincere in accordance with there customs, & way of life even in line with there religious beliefs, they need to be wise; and to be wise is to act in favor of The Indomitable himself, BoLa Tinubu “
