Bobo Chicago Bola Tinubu, the former governor of Lagos State, whose assets include Lagos State and the APC, is currently bankrolling Buhahari’s campaign.
Conventional wisdom holds that Tinubu through his placeman and Buhahari’s running mate Yemi Osinbajo, will take over the country in the event of a Buhahari win on Saturday.
Our man “on ground” claims that this is not going to happen. He said Tinubu is in for a shock when Buhahari walks into the presidential mansion at Aso Rock.
The source claimed it is going to be like “Yar’Adua did Obasanjo”. Obasanjo had installed Yar’Adua as his successor as president, with the intention of being a puppet-master. Once the late Yar’Adua won the (s)election, he surrounded himself “with his people” – Fulani advisers. The source claims history will repeat itself if Buhahari wins, and that there are “Fulani advisers waiting in the shadows to step into the corridors of power” and marginalise Bobo Chicago.
There are already murmurings that Osinbajo is being sidelined from Buhahari’s plans.
