Lagos: The shame must belong to the president. A father who watches his children fight and tear their shirts in public.
He watched Obaseki chase away a majority of members of house of assembly from Edo. He did nothing.
He watched Obaseki arrange 7 men from a ward at midnight to suspend the national chairman of his party , he did nothing.
He organises reconciliation committees and gives them no teeth.
He watched Obaseki seal off the road leading to the house of the national chairman and lifted neither finger nor voice.
He watched some funny folks arrange a black market court injunction against the national chairman of the ruling party , he did nothing.
I used to think no one could cross his redlines.
He watched one imposter called Giadom call a NEC meeting, he kept quiet.
Now the waters have been muddied.
No one plays these games better than Lagos.
If you believe Obaseki then believe that someday some ward officers can on the eve of a presidential election suspend the presidential candidate of their party and hand victory to a rival party.
Some say party affairs are not Buhari’s business.
I hope he stays away.
Lagos can match the dance steps of anyone.
A federal high court in Lagos has ordered that the NEC meeting next week can only hold if Ajimobi, Bulama and Chukwuma co are allowed to participate and carry out their official duties as Ag Deputy National Chairman, Ag National Secretary, and Ag National Auditor.
Technically that that NEC is DOA.
But I pray it comes as a ghost.
I pray the president remains aloof. So that by next week we can have two APCs under his nose.
