The Limits Of Obedience: Tinubu and The Politics Of Sherubawon
Sun Tzu fl.(circa 426BC)
To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill
The recent lecture that Tinubu gave at a restaurant in UK leaves us to a lot of thinking. Even if his supporters are able to grab power and run away ..presumably meaning ballot box snatching. In how many parts of Nigeria can that be possible?
In 2015 a traditional ruler threatened to drown people from a certain part of the country if they did not vote for APC.
In 2019 reports of people refused PVC were rampant in Lagos.
The presence of Funke Akindele..Labour Party and the sudden realization of the electoral strength of northerners in SW Nigeria have created real fears in APC Lagos.Fears strong enough to ensure that the party is sleepless.
Now you need the northern votes as Rabiu Kwankwaso of NNPP needs them. You cannot deny them PVCs and you cannot deny other non indigenes in Lagos too.
Like the puffer fish which doubles its size with water or air in take when it sees an enemy.
Tinubus team are employing tactics that dates back to the time of Sun Tzu the Chinese war philosopher…
In modern terms this is called “Shakara oloje” or Serubawon which talks of what people say and dont mean are even incapable of doing, all because they want to intimidate their opponents.
Obidients must observe a limit here,,,that any attempt to injure any Nigerian in Feb is an acceptable cause for WAR.
I come in peace
