Fashola For President

24

Fashola as a candidate is a credible choice What are his strength and weaknesses Many believe that he did well as governor in Lagos State There were critical moments when he demonstrated leadership e.g. management of Ebola outbreak , aircrash and other crises. He was fortunate to be governor when oil prices were stable , the economy was growing and the currency was stable . One could argue that he had more revenue than any governor in Nigerian history Prior to coming to office Oba sanjo had withheld part of Lagos state allocation for years. Yar'adua refunded it all and so Fashola had money to spend. What did he achieve with all that money? Well let us debate that objectively Fashola was selected by his Principal Tinubu and many perceive that as a godfather relationship. The pblic perception is Fashola continued an arrangement where resources of Lagos State were diverted to Tinubu .It may be debated whether this is done using legal loopholes but the public perception is that it is at best immoral lately Fashola has found work as a detective; unearthing evidence at crime scenes in addition to his jobe as Works and housing Minister a job he did as well as being Power Minister for 4 years Ha s he fixed the power problem? He is on record as saying power could be fixed in record time. Fashola is Muslim which would cause disquiet in some places and reassurance in others .Such is the nature of Nigeria's politics Politically Fashola has no base and is unlikely to go far without the support of Tinubu and Buhari and therefore likely to be indebted to them if he gets there What can we expect from a Fashola presidency ? Nigeria is difficult to predict but One would expect respect for rule of law and progress on the economic front The main issues agitating minds in Nigeria are security constitutional review and restructuring . I do not think Fashola will address the constitutional issue I think many of the security issues would be resolved by balancing the security architecture across different ethnicities and being firm on herdsmen and establishing local police I expect the security situation to improve I also expect better management of international relationships I would give Fashola a 6 out of 10
