2019 Presidebtial Election and the Rule #1 of 48 Laws of Power

Many people in the world make the terrible mistake of violating the Rule #1 of the 48 Laws of Power and the worst place to make this mistake is in the corridors of power; from Alausa to Abuja.

2019 is going to be a very interesting year for the political leadership of Nigeria. There will be two new presidential nominees from the APC and PDP. One of them will have an Igbo Vice Presidential candidate.

In 1990, I was still in my 20s, but employed as a PA to Hon. Babatunde Ereola, the Director of Publicity for Alhaji Bamanga Tukur's Presidential Campaign with High Chief Raymond Dokpesi as the Director of Security.  I saw the handwriting on the Wall and left. What followed next was the cancellation of the presidential primaries to stop the leading presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), the retired Major-General Shehu Musa Yar'Adua (March 5, 1943 – December 8, 1997) from wining the presidential election.
I knew that the presidential elections would be aborted.

Majority of Nigerians don't know that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was one of founders of the party that later produced the leadership of the SDP that contested against the National Republican Convention (NRC) in the ill-fated presidential election of 1993.
Shehu Musa Yar'Adua and his group formed the People's Front of Nigeria. Members included Babagana Kingibe, Atiku Abubakar, Bola Tinubu,Magaji Abdullahi, Ango Abdullahi, Ahmadu Rufa'i, Yahaya Kwande, Abdullahi Aliyu Sumaila, Wada Abubakar, Babalola Borishade, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso,M.S.Buhari and Farouk Abdulazeez.
