· Shameful lust for power reduces APC’s superman to a joke

Sweet are the tickles of vanity, which like the toad, ugly and venomous, wears yet a precious jewel; thus the vainglorious politicians infinite attempts to leap like the toad in pursuit of its shiny jewel. Were Rauf Aregbesola, Osun governor, cut of less inflated stock, he would shun the infinite hunt for showy and vapid jewel. But like every other politician, he is led by eternal lust for power and perks. Little wonder he has resorted to more desperate measures to keep himself in Nigeria’s power corridors.

Strong indications have emerged that the Osun state governor may emerge as the next Lagos West senatorial candidate. This is because of recent developments in the political landscape of Lagos where the governor is a very strong force to reckon with.

It was reliably gathered that Senator Solomon Olamilekan is poised to move to Ogun State where he is expected to contest for the governorship. As at last month, two notable aspirants have set aside their ambition for Aregbesola’s proposed aspiration to go to the Senate. The calculation is that the Osun governor remains the only formidable politician who can easily deliver the senatorial district, which happens to be the biggest in the country.
