    Welcome back to Western Nigeria good people of Ondo state, after 13 years of POVERTY DEVELOPMENT PARTY [P.D.P.] DORO GOVERNMENT. WISE WISE WEST, NO MORE BURNING OF HOUSES, KILLING OF OUR SIBLINGS IN THE NAME OF POLITICAL DORO BANDITS. FEMO OMO FANI FAWA, TAKE NOTE.

  • Amir

    A silly brained drug addict, son of a betrayer and traitor, beneficiary of late Bola Ige’s misplaced magnanimity, greedy double faced liar and ‘plate of rice’ politician who is incapable of contesting for a ward elective position called F. Kayode has been disgraced. This Jonathan revamped governors house begger, the only Nigerian officially forced to leave a political party, found space in the social media to insult Nigerians. Former president Obasanjo described Fani as a ‘give him food’ follower, the worst reference for a former public office holder. Fani the drug planned to anchor on Jegede and cleverly supplant his idle wife to run weekly collection of the public funds of Ondo state. God don catcham with disgrace! Were.

      Editor Premium Times,

      President BUHARI lays Bola Tinubu to rest

      Bola Ahmed Tinubu might still be panting and sweating nervously
      to make the dead walk, after staging protest march as a show of force
      last month in Lagos, just to prove he’s got heft and is not yet dead, politically,
      after he’d entered into a daft alliance with Muhamadu Buhari to form the most
      useless political party in Nigerian history – called APC. Since then, Bola Tinubu
      has lost face and alienated people, partly for entering into that APC alliance with
      more or less an empty head. Today, Bola Tinubu is the worse for it.

      Bola Tinubu at outset entered into that Buhari/APC alliance as the senior partner,
      with four [4] ACN party states under his wings; whilst Buhari’s shambolic CPC party
      had just one [1] state in central Nigeria. Bola Tinubu conceded the presidential slot
      to Muhamadu Buhari on the false calculation that Buhari would then automatically
      pick him (as ACN party Leader) to come on board as the vice presidential candidate.
      But once Buhari was given the certificate of return as the APC presidential candidate
      he shoddily rejected Bola Tinubu as running mate on grounds inter alia that he would
      prefer a Christian as a running mate. From that point on Bola Tinubu became irrelevant.

      • omoeleniyan

        …….(2) BUHARI lays Bola Tinubu to rest

        Muhamadu Buhari as the APC presidential candidate went on to win 18 northern states

        to turn the tables against Bola Tinubu – whose ACN faction inside the shambolic APC
        alliance instantly became the junior and disposable partner in Buhari’s own eyes.

        A year after the shambolic APC party was ensconced in power inside the presidential villa,
        Bola Tinubu counts his losses, with today’s Ondo state result as his latest tragedy because
        Bola Tinubu who based his politics in Yoruba south-west region of Nigeria is the one looking
        for his whereabouts, as the APC party he helped forge, by-passes him in Yorubaland to win
        election in Yorubaland all the same.

        Before today Bola Tinubu had control of just two Yorubaland states – Oshun and Lagos states –
        with the Buhari faction controlling both Ogun and Oyo states, also in Yorubaland. If the APC wins
        the Ondo governorship election as calculatedly projected by Premium Times, and if APC goes on
        to win both the Ekiti and Oshun state governorship due in two years’ time, Buhari will be going into
        the 2019 presidential election with majority five [5] states in Yorubaland versus Bola Tinubu’s one.
        That horrific fact will effectively lay Bola Ahmed Tinubu to rest in perfect peace – with just Lagos state

        to count on at that time. Fools die!

        • aisha ani

          May he rest in pieces!

        • KBE

          This politics is not as simple as you just analyzed. The players know that much. You can write off the strategists to your own peril. Just watch the development in the next 3 years.

    • Arabakpura

      How can I applaud your post? I am just thinking!

  • dike offor

    I want to applaud Wilfred Bankole Ademokun ,shegxy and especially Amir and omoeleniyan ; for there concrete post and explanation…honestly the time has come that God father decide for the future of more than 1 person in a state…Tinubu did all he can but never got Ondo State after Mimiko deserted to another party…I forsee the fall of a man who believe he is more than the Federal Government , guided with senior political players in the globe… If Ambode doesnt perform very well in Lagos State, I see Tinubu losing Lagos, and also Ambode might decide to join the winning team if he want to retain his office..likewise Atiku would fall soon…Buhari has said it that Nigeria will be a country without Political gladiators before his tenure end, PDP has been in a shamble situation caused by greed….let watch and see….the new Governor Elect shouldnt pay homage to Tinubu, if he want support,because Ondo people didnt vote for Jegede because Mimiko would still be the one ruling, also Ondo people didnt vote for Oke, because the AD , and others sponsor political gladiators interest…Congratulation Ondo state

  • Bright Henry

    Hehehehehe. I they laugh o. And PDP is dreaming of winning in 2019. Hahahahaha.
    Let us see reasons why PDP failed in its own chairman governors forum state.
    1. Mimiko had been profligate and even owing workers salaries for up to 6 months. There was certainly no way Jegede his boy could have won.
    2. PDP was not prepared for the election. Running up and down to different courts and only had two days to prepare. That put APC in the drivers sit.
    3 The ethnic politics played it’s role. Here. Ondo being Yoruba could not have had it anyway. It must align with majority of its kith and kiln who are mainly APC.
    Congratulations. To Aketi on a well deserved victory.

  • Intrepid

    Modu Sheriff, the bokoharamite, remember the one that once shoved Tinubu aside during an encounter in Maidugiri, has done his dirty job for Buhari.

  • Concerned

    This vote by the people for the people is vindication for Buhari

    A vote of confidence in his change mantra and a strong indication that no matter the attempts to misrepresent and undermine his government – the good people of Nigeria support his good intentions

    It brings hope that we are truly moving forward and defeating the enemies of our collective progress

    Congratulations Nigeria !

  • dike offor

    intrepid.. you are wrong. The Ondo people are felt up with Gods father politics…if Tinubu Candidate contested the election he would have lost.

  • JP

    Congratulations to Rotimi Akeredolu and the good people of Ondo state. Special thanks to Mr. Tunji Abayomi that exposed the plot to impose a candidate on Ondo people with his open letters. May the regime of Akeredolu bring better things to Ondo state.

    • aisha ani

      You forgot to mention the good people of Owo.

  • Gabriel Olasebikan

    Above all,all parties were not given equal opportunity to campaign.Other candidates barely campaigned.

    • Ananas_yolawa.

      You Should keep that in you evidence, because I know PDPig will to the tribunal.

    • F E R A N M I

      What stop Jegede and his boss Mimiko from campaigning and leave the court case to their lawyers?..

    • Nkem

      Mimiko was in power for eight years. He had eight good years to let his light so shine before the good people of Ondo, so that they would see his good works and reward him by voting for his party and candidate. Mimiko had eight years to campaign. The others only started campaigning a few months ago.

  • Ananas_yolawa.

    Oyaaa, back to you drug addict, get the keys and get ready to release all your MAD-DOGS-OF-War in ONDO. They will be no sleep in FFK head today.

    • F E R A N M I

      ….

      • Ananas_yolawa.

        >>>> ?????? !!

  • Water No Get Enemy

    Where is FFK with his empty threat?

  • Arabakpura

    It is finished!

    • Nkem

      He said if the elections were rigged.

      • Sean

        So it was a fair election even from you! Thank you

  • Observer

    Important notice please… 2000 Dogs of war are on their way from FFK dynasty to Ondo state… Please call Mr Akpan Udor , that Ondo locals needs his wealth of experience in Dog killing for special pepper soup for the celebration of Aketi. Thank you

    IS IT TRUE THAT BOLA TINUBU HAS BECOME SO FRUSTRATED HE’S DECIDED
    TO FORM A NEW POLITICAL PARTY WITH ABUBAKAR ATIKU FOR 2019 POLL?
    I WAS HEARING THIS RUMOUR WHERE I WENT TO CUT MY HAIR YESTERDAY.
    IF IT IS TRUE BOLA TINUBU SHOULD NOT WASTE HIS TIME – IT’S TOO LATE.

    • aisha ani

      I don’t think it is a rumor, some of the participants have been talking.

  • KBE

    Now that you have decided to join the change train let’s us see how it changes your fortunes. In a moment of political miscalculation Wike, Fayose and Mimiko brought in a poison in the name of Sheriff who had turned to be their albatross and keep hunting them. The damage has already been done let’s see how they fix the mess. As for a Ondo people enjoy your chains.

  • dike offor

    Tinubu cant work with Atiku because of the Saraki and Dino.they wouldnt give him space… if he is wise enough let him build Senator Shehu Sanni from Kaduna…instead of Atiku , the party would loss…Atiku days are number also.
