BUHARI AND TINUBU:MORDERN DAY AFONJA AND ALIMI
The present trials of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the colossus of the Southwest is not surprising to those who have vision. I saw it coming and that was why over two years ago, precisely on Tuesday, May 27, 2014, I wrote a back page op-ed on ThisDay newspaper titled ĎFrom Battleground to Common Groundí and in that piece, I said inter alia as follows:
BOOK LAUNCH: President Muhammadu Buhari accompanied by the Vice President Prof Yemi Osinbajo being received by the APC Chieftain and Former Governor of Lagos, Senator Bola Tinubu and Speaker Rt Hon Yakubu Dogara during a book Launch on President Muhammadu Buhari, tagged: The Challenges of Leadership in Nigeria by Mr. John N Paden held at the International Conference Centre in Abuja.

ĎA comrade is not for what you are for, neither does he share the same interests as you. A comrade is simply one who is against what you are against. In other words, you are bound by a common enemy.
The All Progressives Congress, APC is a party founded on this premise.
Those who are enemies of the President (Goodluck Jonathan) and the PDP gathered together to form a party whose foundation is their common enemy.
They share no ideological connection, neither are they friends. In actual fact, they may even hate each other, only that they hate the President and the PDP more and are willing to temporarily suppress their hatred for each other in other to gang up against their common enemy.
In my experience, it is better to have a party built on common interests than to have one built on a common enemy. This is because as even a political novice will tell you, there are no permanent friends or permanent enemies only permanent interests.
Now, if the above is true, what would happen to a party that is built on a common enemy?
Parties built on this foundation last only as long as the enemy is in power. Once their enemy is no longer in power the party disintegrates.í
It does not matter if you hate Reno Omokriís guts, but ask yourself if what I said has not turned out to be the truth.
In the space of just a month, Bola Tinubu has been deliberately mystified and treated with such contempt that even those who he considered his worst enemies find themselves feeling sorry for him.
But he should have seen it coming!
The unraveling of Bola Tinubu actually began on the 3rd of June 2016, when President Muhammadu Buhari publicly and right in Tinubuís face told him at a reception the President held for members of the National Assembly at the Presidential Villa that the All Progressive Congress had no such position as a National Leader.
I know this because a Senator who attended the function called me almost immediately after the event and told me about how the hall descended into almost pin drop silence after the President made that assertion.
I can assure my readers that President Muhammadu Buhari would never have made such a remark prior to the 2015 elections. But who needs a piece of toilet paper after it has done its job!
That remark was the signal that sleeper agents within the APC were waiting for to begin the unraveling of the masquerade.
Teaching him a lesson in Ondo state is only the beginning. Bola Tinubuís comeuppance is not yet complete in the eyes of his traducers.
And then look at the way he is portrayed in Professor John Padenís biography of the president. Paden portrays Tinubu as a desperate power monger who kept throwing himself at Buhari only to be rejected at each instance. Tinubu, see how low you have fallen!
I do not know why Bola Tinubu is angry at Paden. Did he not read that this was an official biography?
Paden was not there during the horse trading. The book was written with the cooperation of President Buhari. The things he wrote about Tinubu were the accounts he was given by the President.
