History Will Be Cruel To Tinubu, Bisi Akande, Gbajabiamila, Others Over Their Position On Yoruba Nation

The umbrella body for Yoruba self-determination groups, Ilana Omo Oodua, has criticised the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and other APC leaders in the South-West leaders for opposing “separatist agitations”.

SaharaReporters had reported that Tinubu and some other APC leaders in the South-West, including the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila had opposed agitations for Yoruba Nation at a meeting on Sunday.

They however supported some of the resolutions made by the Southern Governors recently regarding open grazing and restructuring.

But Ilana Oodua through its spokesperson, Maxwell Adeleye, told The PUNCH Newspaper that the decision made by the APC leaders was unfortunate.

The group headed by Prof Banji Akintoye also told the APC leaders that “history will not be kind to them” for “opposing the wish of the people”.

“People need to correct this. It is not secession. What we are fighting for is the self-determination right of our people as guaranteed by the United Nations Charter on Human rights and even the 1999 constitution.

“It is our right to fight for self-determination. Tinubu and others are entitled to their opinions. Conduct a poll and you will see that a majority of Yoruba people want their own nation.

“It is unfortunate that Chief Bisi Akande is present where the yearning and aspirations of Yoruba people will be denied. If his mentor, the late Chief Bola Ige – is alive, will Bisi Akande say the things he read out yesterday?

“If the likes of Tinubu, Baba Akande because of their ambition, Baba Akande are not careful, history will not be kind to them for standing against the yearnings and aspirations of the people. Without the people, they cannot be leaders,” he said.

Ikemefuna Anyasi

State House of Assembly

Oshimili north

I believe strongly that representing a people is all about the people such that improve their living standard and affect their lives positively. Com. Ikem Anyasi is determined to make an indelible mark in our LGA. He has got the vision, the contact and the strong will to empowered and give exposure to our people. He has vowed to do things DIFFERENTLY. Powered by AAC Oshimili North Exco

My Manifesto

One area where we can better the lives of our people, improve their living standard, expose them and do human capital development is through Sports. Sports is the highest employer of labour all over the world, yet we underestimate what a total overhaul and massive development of the sector will do for our people.

For a start when elected, Com. Anyasi will concentrate on four different sporting events such as:

1. Basketball,

2. Tennis,

3. Athletics and

4. Football.

I will establish four academy centres with school and boarding facilities in four different towns in the LGA. The focus target will be children between the ages of 12 and 18. Train the discovered talents with state of the art facilities in partnership’ with foreign professional schools.

The children will later be transferred abroad for further training and marketing in order for them to have opportunities in the big leagues. With this, families, towns and the LGA will be positively affected.

Foreign currency will flow into the schools and people who would have become frustrated due to lack of what to do would have made a good living for themselves and the society. Nigeria will be better for it.

John Agboifo

State House of Assembly

Ika south LGA

I am the best candidate for the IKA SOUTH, HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY, because of my passionate zeal and drive for humanity especially, the good people of Ika South, my immediate Constituency. I am an indigene of IHOGBE kingdom, Agbor, IKA SOUTH LGA, Delta State, born on 6th of August, 1973, to the family of Late Sir Alexander Agboifo and Hon. Victoria Agboifo and attended Erigbe Primary School Agbor, Christ the Kings College Onitsha. My hobbies are playing basketball, reading and traveling.

I am for reformation – legislative reforms and all inclusive representation. I am grounded, well loved and believed in by all because I have an history of over 2 decades in the course for humanity, fairness and enquiry. I can boldly say a vote for John Ubaka Agboifo is a vote for better living.

My Manifesto

My manifesto is for a progressive Ika South as a lawmaker via constitutional reform/ enactment.  

Adequate Representation

The gap between the Led and their Rep, for me, is and will remain a top priority. I will therefore establish not less than two offices in Ika South Local Government Area where my constituency will be lodging complaints for my immediate attention and urgent actions, as a TRUE believer of a transparent representation.

Also, in the bid to keep a direct communication between me and my people, I will create a constituency website, where the constituencies’ progressive moves will be updated periodically for the consumption and comfortability of my people. This will also come with a customer complaint number (Helpline) and an email for my constituency t

The management of these communication channels will in turn create mini job opportunities for a few people in my Constituency.

Lobbying and Collaboration

I will work assiduously with who ever becomes the Governor of Delta State in 2019, regardless of his political party or other affiliations because, what really matters to me is my constituency and the people I intend to represent and serve.

The Private Sector Partnership Alliance Programs (PS-PAP).

I will pursue vigorously through the enactment of laws in strong partnership with the Local Government Council Chairman the implementation of my agenda The Private Sector Partnership Alliance Programs (PS-PAP).

Job creation

As a lawmaker, I intend to sponsor reform and partnership bills that will attract private and corporate investors altogether via My Private Partnership Alliance Program {PS-PAP}. The bill will cover cooperative societies too! This in turn will lead to massive creation of job opportunities in our Constituency.

Natural and Human Resources Endowment:

In this area, I intend to study the existing laws on minerals in Nigeria and find ways we can put our mineral deposits into use and without the contravention of the Federal laws on one side, and while enabling a sort of self reliance and maximum utilisation of our mineral deposits to better the living conditions of our people on the other.

Olusola Adekunle Akapo LAGOS ALIMOSHO

I’ve 6 years of international experience while working for Municipal and State government. My passion to serve the public and to make laws that would benefit every Nigerian who been disenfranchised by oppressive and corrupt government. These are part of the reasons why am soliciting for votes from the electorate l plan to represent in my Constituency.Having had 15 years of engineering experience in my working carrier will enable me to perform oversight functions on committee(s) in my capacity.


Ade-Adedeji Adeyera LAGOS:IKEJA

Having worked as a Legislative Aide at the National Assembly and with a working knowledge of legislative doctrines and policies, I consider myself eminently qualified to be a Lawmaker. Most of all the old guards we seek to dislodge have seen Public office as a place to corruptly enrich themselves. That’s why a Lawmaker can earn so much and not sponsor a single bill in his years in office. However, all that’s about to change because we’re out to rewrite the history of governance and policies through qualitative and truly people-driven representation.


Ishola Olatunde Abraham LAGOS: SHOMOLU

I considered myself as the people of Zone 7, the knowledgeable disenfranchised Nigerian. I have live more than 13 years in a country that have one of the world best constitution and societal system of government. With my direct experience of modern society. I want to represent my people in creating a better society for all.


Muyiwa Solomon Odewole OGUN STATE: ADO-ODO/OTA

#TakeItBack from looters. Nigeria is at the verge of anarchy, nothing is working. Good and accountable governance would build the masses confidence and reduce the level of corruption and poverty to minimum ravaging the country.

Taiwo ibironke

I consider my candidacy a call to liberate and fight for a dividend of democracy denied to the people of my constituency. I am in this race to win and nothing else. I process the ability with experience to deploy strategic strategies using the knowledge of the constituency I know very well growing up as a child. At the moment, the main political parties PDP and APC are far from winning as both have disappointed the citizens in the past and people are wiser now. Our party AAC in the grass root of my constituency stands an advantage for voting power.

Francis Shonubi Speaks on Purposeful Representation and the Lagos East Senatorial Race.

 I believe the kind of senators we have in Nigeria are just playing a kind of shenanigan that does not represent the interest of the common man –

-Francis Shonubi on TVC

Francis Olarenwaju Shonubi is popularly known as ManiKongo of Afrika. He is a graduate of History and International Relations from University of Lagos currently vying for a seat in the Lagos East Senatorial District under the African Action Congress [AAC]

On the 17th January 2019, he had a conversation on TVC with the Mr Nifemi Oguntoye as the anchor. In the interview with the link below, Mr Shonubi spoke on why he is the preferred candidate for adequate representation of the people of Lagos East people.

When the interviewer segued into regional sentiment tied to Ikorodu, stating that the region has produced senatorial candidate between 1999 and 2003, he responded by stressing that we cannot limit representation of Lagos East to just Ikorodu, although he is from Ikorodu.

I want to speak to my people, the good people of my constituency. We are not looking at Ikorodu now. We are looking at five Local Governments.  We are looking at direct representation at the red chamber. We are not (just) looking at Ikorodu because when you say Ikorodu, you are going to be marginalizing all other constituencies. I am talking of Bariga, Shomolu…etc. We are looking at purposeful representation of our people, so don’t let’s talk about Ikorodu factor now. Let’s look at the people in that constituency.

The interview also delve into the odds of winning the elections with the interviewer emphasising the fact that the ruling party is fielding a supposed experienced candidate who has been member of the State House of Assembly four consecutive times. Mr shonubi, without hesitation, argued that there is no bill passed in the entire period of time the said candidate spent in the State House of Assembly.

I am from the same constituency with him. He has been in the lagos state house of assembly for 3 consecutive times and I have not seen anything that he has done. I am not saying this to downplay him but I am saying there is no bill.  He never sponsored any bill – Francis Shonubi.

Speaking about failure of legislative representation of his region, he said:

Let me say that in my own constituency, I have not seen any direct impact. I have been in my constituency for, let’s say, for decades.

Having spoken on character, he expantiated on his trackable antecedent and how entrenched he is in his local community;

I will say this with all modesty.  I am someone that believes in humanity. I see  myself as a humanist and I feel the pulse of the common man. I am qualify for this position I am vying for. I will say it with all modesty, I have been tested and trusted from  Secondary school through my university days and in my community. As I speak to you, I am the secretary of my community which is the Igbogbo kingdom. I am organising secretary of the Igbogbo kingdom festive period that we normally have, which is a signature event.

According to the interviewer, Mr Francis Shonubi will be wrestling at the polls with fourteen other candidates.
