His near encounters with lucrative positions

Dreams makes fools of even the most clever men, when they do not come true. But the dreams of a man are hardly his Achilles heel. The greatest assassin of dreams is haste, the desire to reach things before the right time which often translates to overreaching them.

Thus it is always good to measure thrice and slice once. But this immutable truth has no bearing in the affairs of Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora. Despite his astuteness and patience, Mamora has watched his dreams evaporate into thin air too many times. He has been nominated for top positions in this government more than three times and along the line, his name has been removed. There is no gainsaying that Senator Mamora suffers the brute end of tough luck.

Soon after experiencing a succession of disappointments, his recent dream of becoming an ambassador has also dissipated into thin air, like a wild and worthless imagination, fed upon illusion and put to death by reality. Call it fatal coincidence or ill luck, Mamora has been through a lot of disappointments in his political career.

It would be recalled that he wanted to become governor of Lagos State but he was dropped and replaced with Babatunde Fashola by ex-Lagos governor and APC leader, Bola Tinubu. He also wanted to go back to the senate but he was replaced with another person. And just recently, his dream of becoming an ambassador ended abruptly. This development came to be via the resubmitted list of non-career ambassadorial nominees to the Senate for ratification by President Muhammadu Buhari.

The name of Mamora which was in the original list was conspicuously missing from the new one. This is the second time that Mamora experienced disappointment in President Buhari’s administration. Earlier, he was penciled down to become the Chairman of the Nigerian Ports Authority in recognition of his energetic efforts during Buhari’s presidential campaign but he lost out barely 48hrs to the announcement.

According to the news doing the rounds as you read, if the Yemi Osinbajo-led panel probing the allegations of financial impropriety against the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Mr. Babachir David Lawal, indicts him, either the former Edo State governor, Adams Oshiomhole, or former Deputy Senate Minority Leader, Senator Olorunnimbe Mamora, may clinch the top-ranking cabinet post. Shall we pray for Olorunnimbe Mamora?
