National leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu has come under heavy criticism after photo of him appearing to be endorsing Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello for a second term surfaced online.
Gov. Bello is running for a second term in office, but believed to have a very low approval ratings given how poorly he is assumed to have performed in his first term.
One of the points his political opponents score against him is that of him owing the state civil servants for more that 30 months.
But despite all of these, he seemed to have found his way into the heart of Tinubu.
Observers now wonder why the former Lagos Governor would back a governor that is believed to have unperformed, whereas he (Tinubu) refused to back one of his successors, Akinwunmi Ambode – who is thought to have performed better than Gov. Bello – during his second term bid as Lagos Governor.

This is madness

Tinubu made it clear during Ambode’s saga that it wasn’t about performance but about party loyalty.That is, sharing of contracts to loyal party members. Don’t be mad at him for endorsing Yahaya Bello. Tinubu doesn’t care about good governance.

Tinubu personifies the typical contemporary Nigerian politician. Base, morally hollow, sycophantic, divisive, aggrandizement, intolerant & thuggish. In today’s Nigeria, such politicians excel.

Ambode did a multiple of 1000 of what Yahya Bello did and never did, but he was never appreciated by Tinubu.
This means a lot in Nigeria. Fail and you will be supported by godfathers. pic.twitter.com/pjCJMGp2sS

Why does Tinubu’s support for Yahaya Bello come as a surprise to you guys? Tinubu’s biggest investments is sponsoring clueless incompetent politicians that he can control
