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.

Sexual Assault: Catwoman defends herself against Batman

I decided to do this quick recount before it becomes over taking by event…ehm, before I forget to do so. No time to read over for errors. I'm serving it fresh and hot. On this fateful day, I had decided to join the coaster bus ride home, for two reasons, it’s got better seats and arrangement than the popular yellow buses (LT and Paragon), it would also arrive faster at my destination, albeit its more expensive than the yellow buses. I sat down, I can’t say in peace though, you can hardly be on the street of Lagos and expect that tranquility of Beverly Hills, as commuters strolled into the bus indecisively. It took a while before the bus got filled and ready to go. A young lady, had been in the bus for as long as I had been, some few seats behind me, surrounded by male commuters, she was the only female within 3 rows. The journey started slowly, because at this time of the day in Lagos everything goes slowly. The journey started uneventful, besides the occasional ranting of passeng…

Tupac Shakur’s stepfather up for parole after spending 30 years in prison

Mutulu Shakur (born Jeral Wayne Williams, August 8, 1950) is an American black nationalist and acupuncturist. He was a proponent of the Republic of New Afrika and a close friend of Geronimo Pratt.

Shakur is best known for his conviction on racketeering charges following the 1979 prison escape of Joanne Chesimard (Assata Shakur) and the infamous $1.6 million robbery of a Brinks armored truck in New York in which a guard and two police officers were killed. It was later found that an illegal project by the FBI, COINTELPRO, aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and neutralizing what they considered domestic political organizations, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., had targeted Mutulu as well as many of his comrades.  Mutulu Shakur is the stepfather of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur. 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…
