All Governors, APC. 80 percent of Senators, APC. 80 percent of House of Reps, APC. 80 percent Houses of Assembly, APC. ALL LGA’s, APC. Vice-President, APC. National Leader of APC from the Zone.
First Rail line in more than half a century (Lagos-Ibadan); The transformation of Lagos State to be the envy of the entire country under the APC; The June 12 recognition that PDP could not do for 16 years; the apology over annulment of June 12 to the Abiola family and the Yorubas that PDP could not do for 16 years; Post-Humous Award to Yoruba sons (Abiola and Fawehinmi) that PDP could not do for 16 years; the progress on Lagos-Ibadan road that PDP could not do for 16 years.
The most powerful Minister since 1960 to Yorubas (Fashola – Works, Power and Housing); the Buhari Economic Management Team piloted by Yoruba (Prof. Yemi Osinbajo); the POSSIBILITY (not a certainty- depending on the support we get from the East) of a Yoruba Presidency in 2023. All these against the PDP’s maltreatment of the Yorubas – denial of the Chairmanship of PDP; refusal of Atiku to commit in WRITING to one term, thereby denying the YORUBAs of the POSSIBILITY of a Presidency in 2023; Nyesom Wike and Peter Obi open denigration of the Yorubas; the open association of PDP bigwigs with IPOB that has openly abused & denigrated the Yoruba race; the long seizure of funds belonging to Lagos under the OBJ/ Atiku regime, etc. We shall keep working hard, but South West – the proud, educated, cerebral race – of which I am a stakeholder (my mum being Yoruba) CANNOT be too close to call.
We shall also urge our very enterprising, well-travelled and very educated compatriots from the East and South-South to follow suit and join the fast-moving PMB/PYO train.
