People who tried to cross him did not fair very well afterwards and the current Minister for Power, Housing and Works could attest that it took his full prostration surrounded by several peacemaker before Asiwaju could forgive him after making him governor of Lagos State and the man thought that he has now grown enough wings to challenge his mentor. That Buhari's cabinet was delayed for nearly six months was a result of his unwillingness to forgive Fashola and Buhari wanted Fashole in his cabinet. The list goes on of people he has helped place in positions including the latest promotion of his erstwhile Commissioner of Finance Ben Akabueze who was promoted to Director of Budget in Abuja.
Bola Tinubu, simply put, is a larger than life political colossus of present day Nigerian. Regardless of the not so far good results of the government he helped instal, and in as much as many Nigerians are now saying buyer beware and regretting the decision they made listening to Bola Tinubu and his change mantra, the man from Osun Stateremains what he is, big political player. Icheoku says congratulations to a man who identifies political talents and uses them successfully. He knows how to cultivate power and maintaining it; and nothing more needs to be said except that Nigeria requires many more souls like him. Asiwaju, Icheoku says this one is for you.
