Jide Sanwo-Olu in Ikoyi

Babajide Sanwo-Olu

Mbok, please pardon me. It looks like this week I am a little cranky and it is showing with the way I am firing. See the way I just took out madam Oby, the thing even push me to go try Nigerian Army. It is because I have not entered the other room for weeks and it is getting to me o. Please help me beg Duchess o before the thing will now push me to go and yab DSS o. Those ones no dey gree o. Anyways, it is the turn of Sanwo Olu.

You see I have plenty issues against this candidate from the way he emerged and the way he will rule as a result of the way he was foisted on Lagosians so I no really like the man. But that said, I have been looking closely at all his campaign posters especially the one that adorn the wall of his campaign office on Awolowo Road in Ikoyi. That building by the way belongs to my friend Victor Afolabi and I once met him there when they were putting up the poster with glee.

Me, I pretend that I was involved since they had promised to buy me food at the Westwood Hotel down the road and as I no get that kind principle, I quickly agree. As we looked at the poster, I noticed that Sanwo-Olu trouser na labu labu. The trouser was very big o and he put the belt on his waist maybe to hide a big belly button, kai, and then the thin gray beard now came across like a character from tales by moonlight. Any ways no problem, it is Ok, they have said it is Sanwo Olu we want and it must be him.

We await his emergence even as we expect him to move the governor’s office to Bourdillon and rule from the Kitchen or that tiny Office by the right where Tunde Rahman sits otherwise, he no go even reach mid-term talk less of going for primaries at the end of his first tenure. Sad for Lagos, sad for Nigerians and sad for Sanwo-Olu for his brilliance will never show under this shadow. Mbok, Duchess take your calls o.
