One man commented, ” No wonder the Northern cabal quickly eliminated Fayemi as a potential candidate. Now they’re looking for someone from the South South. No politician will secure all the votes in his region, but as far as the southwest is concerned, no politician’s name inspires interest and mystery like Tinubu’s. Even in the distant Ondo and Ekiti, his is the dominant name in people’s mouths for the last decade.”
Tinubu narrated is success in politics that he was the youngest Senator and the Senator with the highest number of votes in all of Nigeria. Before that, he was CFO of Mobil Oil, Treasurer of ExxonMobil. It is not a small position to leave for politics.
Sen. Pius Akinsulure, this man there was my boss. He was the only Nigerian in that position. And the Americans wanted me to stay. I told them that my people need me in politic…that what are doing for you, we can do for Nigeria.
They said I was about become the Financial Director of the company, I said no. I want to go to politics. Ok, we can not persuade you, we will give you 4 year leaves of absence, if you’re not as satisfied, come back, your job will be waiting for you. The white man who was the MD Bob Parker’s is still alive, they can go to him to ask.
But after two years, the military played their madaru and terminated our tenure. Then, I have a decision to make, whether I continue to struggle for my country or go back to the pleasure in ExxonMobil and continue to enjoy my self. And I asked who will fight for Nigeria.
Who will fight for freedom. Who will bring development.
I decided to continue to struggle. That was when we formed NADECO. During that time, my life was turned upside down. They attacked my house. The Americans evacuated my children and my wife.”
I still remembered our struggles in the UK from from 1995 to 1998 with some prominent Nigerians among whom were Prof Wole Soyinka, Prof Bolaji Akinyemi, Governor Oyegan etc. We fought for the survival of Democracy in our fatherland
