A former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Obadiah Mailafia, as revealed that there is a plan to ‘use and crush’ the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who is rumoured to have interests in becoming the nation’s President in 2023.

“The 1999 constitution does not require ‘zoning’ as such. However, I believe that evolving constitutional conventions and norms lead us ineluctably in that direction,” he said.

Mailafia described the governor of Kaduna as “a man of ambition who is susceptible to grand self delusions of the order of Bonaparte.”

“Governor Nasir el-Rufai is evidently a man of ambition, and often susceptible to grand self delusions of the order of Bonaparte. Obasanjo in his memoirs describes him (el-Rufai) as someone who is loyal only to himself.

“He does not know that they just want to use him and crush him. He would be wise to be wary of those whose traditions of rulership allows them to give their daughter to you in marriage only for the sole purpose of finding out your innermost weaknesses, the better to destroy you.”

He said it appears that Tinubu does not seem to understand “the kind of political animals he is dealing with.”

“He doesn’t realise that the game-plan is to exploit to the fullest his political and financial capital and to forebear with him until such a time as they are in a position to run him aground,”
Mailafia said.

He added that Tinubu has the right to aspire to become president but “the north will not relinquish power any time soon.”
