Jagaban: A Myth to the new generation?

Judge a man by his strength, will and accomplishment in transforming himself. Results tell so much about a man, and Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu aka Jagaban is indeed a 1st Class material. Today, Ex-internationals (Super Eagles) played against the Lagos State Exco (Soccer- Novelty Match) in honour of Jagaban, I watched and indeed it is a pride at 63years to be so important and honoured. It is gainsaying that Jagaban holds no national value, indeed without his support and finance President Buhari would have remain in Daura, Katsina. When PDP had the whole of the South West, Nigeria captured, he ensured they didn’t acquire Lagos, the heart beat of the South West, and he kept the heart in his pocket.
So much has been said about him- good and bad- in his yet to expire political reign, he stands as a force to reckon with. To the younger generation, what does he symbolize? Who is he to us? What effect has he had on us? Do we understand all this celebration of his achievement?
I honestly can’t provide a conclusive answer to these questions but I do hope to do a deep study on it, from all perspectives, as I am aware even the devil has a praise singer. However, if you are less than 40years, you belong to my generation. Kindly leave a comment, specifically on what is consider being Jagaban’s effect on this generation. Am aware he has been referred to in songs with respect to his wealth – buje budanu.

He was captured, convicted and sentenced to 60 years in prison for leading a revolutionary group responsible for a trail of bloodshed, including the slayings of an armed guard and two New York polic…
