Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s sexuality as a presidential qualification

Tinubu’s health is of grave concern to the nation simply because he is a frontrunner in the upcoming presidential race. Like him or hate him, the possibility of a Tinubu presidency becomes bolder by the day.

What with the current unravelling of the PDP occasioned by their inability to tame the loose canon named Hurricane Wike

The Labour Party candidate at some point will wake up from the hallucinating effects of shallow popularity buoyed by a fleeting youthful crowd

So as we stare at Tinubu all we see are two major hurdles — his perjury case and his health.


The perjury case, if not careful, may take him out even before the race even as his health continues to be a source of major concern to all sides.

The Pyrates Confraternity recently stirred the hornet’s nest with a clip of its members deriding him and making a mockery of his ambition despite his seeming frail health conditions.

Rightly so, Professor Wole Soyinka, the iconic founder of the confraternity, came out to boldly condemn the action in very strong terms


This, however, didn’t stop popular musician and activist, Dede Mabiouku, from waxing his own single on the same matter.

The most blatant of these assaults on his health has been that of a beautiful young light skinned lady who in very vulgar terms has asked to have sex with Jagaban.

She pleaded for his numbers so that she can offer herself to him. She concluded by saying she would be satisfied even if it was just oral sex she got.

As expected, this has attracted much odium from the public. Observers from both sides of the fence have looked at it in united distaste. But the essence of that message and its target is not lost on me.


That is a bold and strategic assault on Tinubu’s soft underbelly targeted at his base — the poor, illiterate urban voters.

The language and the model used are all symbols of the demographic. So the connection is perfect and the lateral meaning is delivered to devastating effect.

This was strategy at its best. The vulgarity while putting off the literate demographic still leaves an aftertaste in the mouth while keeping the issue of Tinubu’s health on the front burner of public discourse.

On its targeted audience, it shows Tinubu as a withered old man with no vigour and no “action”.


The clip will elicit laughter, derision, and a challenge to the model to leave Tinubu and come to them for “better action”; a real ‘Emilokan’ call.

Let me ask, can you see Tinubu and sex on the same page? When you think of sex, you think of energy, vigour, strength and vitality that’s not Tinubu.


When you think of Tinubu in that space, how do you react? To be truthful, is there a nexus?

To me, this is the single most devastating blow on the Tinubu mystique because it carried the weight and powerful pull of sex to throw a punch that would be really difficult to contain.


This is unfair.
