Aisha Buhari And Bola Tinubu: The Secret Story – Lifestyle Nigeria ?Nigeria News

Aisha Buhari has since the advent of her husband’s presidency not failed to acknowledge the significant role of Bola Tinubu in the realization of that milestone. Emmanuel Aziken in this piece asserts that she is determined to pay back the favour done to her family.

When Governor Nyesom Wike last September alleged that a powerful element in the Presidential Villa was supporting opposition presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, it helped to fuel suspicions on the intentions of the Muhammadu Buhari presidency in 2023.

Wike’s hypothesis was that the support from the powerful element in the Presidential Villa was responsible for the apparent decision of Atiku and Senator Iyrocha Ayu to relegate what he claimed as an earlier agreement for the latter to step down as national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP after the national convention.

Now, Wike did not mention the name of the person supposedly supporting Atiku in the Villa. He only asserted that the person only turned to the PDP presidential candidate after his alleged failure to secure the All Progressives Congress, APC presidential ticket for someone else different from Asiwaju Bola Tinubu failed.

Now, we leave it to conjecture who this powerful person in the Presidential Villa is.

Of course, it was widely reported in the national dailies and news websites that the national chairman of the APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu in the period between June 6 and 7 had announced Senator Ahmad Lawan, the President of the Senate as the consensus candidate arising from discussions with the Presidential Villa.

That was an announcement that, however, was not allowed to fly. For the first time the APC’s National Working Committee, NWC found its balls. Governors of the party also revolted jolting the scales that led to the momentum for Tinubu.

It was as such not surprising that in his victory speech at the convention ground that Tinubu with bravado, could to the hearing of the powerful man in the villa who backed the Senate President, tell Lawan to go and lick his wounds.

The triumph of the Jagaban or City Boy as we now know him against the powerful forces of the Presidential Villa was a lesson that Wike seemed to advance in his caution to Atiku last September.

His warning was that if the powerful man could not deliver his person for the APC ticket, that he may well fail in making him president.

However, following the convention, the powerful man in the Villa that was against Tinubu apparently regained confidence and was more clinical in stopping the APC presidential candidate from returning his alleged nephew as governor of Osun State.

Indeed, Gboyega Oyetola is widely celebrated in the camp of first term APC governors to be among the best performing, perhaps only trailing Babagana Zulum in Borno State.

The same Oyetola who overturned a nearly impossible disadvantage four years ago with the alleged connivance of the system, last July lost by a significant margin despite the advantage of incumbency.

He lost despite the fact that Osun State is reportedly the home base of Tinubu. He lost despite the fact that the pioneer chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande is from the state.

So, those in the Tinubu camp who write off the important man in the villa can only do so to their peril.

However, your correspondent is aware that the Muhammadu Buhari presidency has more often than not seen its top actors playing against one another in the political arena. It is something that some allege even goes to the first family.

The contradictions were seen in the Osun election where key actors in the Rauf Aregbesola camp were alleged to have played anti-party. After the 2020 Edo State governorship election TVC panelists openly came on air to allege that there was jubilation in the Ekiti State Government House after the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was defeated. Even in matters of routine governance Isa Pantami did not close his eyes in throwing Abike Dabiri-Erewa from her office location.

Currently ongoing is the macabre dance in Enugu State where a powerful governor is said to be funding the disorder in the state chapter of the party.

So, if the children are politically naughty it is very likely that they would have learnt mischief from their parents at the top of the power loop.

Now, your correspondent can boldly affirm that Aisha Buhari is certainly not the powerful person who is supporting Atiku as some may think, given that they come from the same Adamawa State.

Whatever are the predilections of other members of her family, Aisha Buhari you correspondent can confidently assert may be the number one supporter of Bola Tinubu in the Villa.

According to one source in the inner reaches of Team Tinubu, Aisha Buhari is the secret weapon that has helped to steer the ambition of the candidate towards near resolution.

History will one day open up on the secret role one beautiful influential lady played in the other room on that APC convention day that distabilised the powerful permutations that were arranged against Tinubu and his aspiration.

Lawan, Kayode Fayemi and Yemi Osinbajo all of whom had looked as possible prospects were all brought down by the sparkle and soft speech of a beautiful lady towards her powerful husband that day.

It is remarkable that Aisha Buhari has been appointed to lead the women team campaigning for Tinubu. It couldn’t have been otherwise. It is payback time from a woman who had never failed to express thanks for the role Tinubu played in helping her husband win the presidency after several failed efforts.

That victory in 2015 also helped her as she confessed this week in managing the PTSD that her husband suffered from after several disappointments in life.

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
