Politics according to a school of thought is a game of numbers and opportunities, while others also believe politicians have no permanent friends or enemies, this must have been playing aloud in the mind of Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, the immediate past Minister of Defense (State), who recently decamped from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
The ovation that greeted his decision to jump ship from the party under whose platform he served as an Ambassador and later Minister must have influenced his reasoning, although a dogged politician, Koro as his teaming supporters call him is also a man that keeps his plan only to himself, but the information gathered is that the one-time senator representing Lagos Central may be planning a sleazy political move.
Information making the rounds in the Lagos West senatorial district of Lagos is that the former Lagos Island LG Boss, is nursing an interest in filling the position currently occupied by Senator Olamilekan Solomon Adeola at the red chamber of the national assembly, despite the fact that he’s not originally from the area.
His permutation according to sources in the senatorial district seems based on the supposed newly sanctioned alliance with the national leader of the party in Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinibu.
How he will emerge, given the rumor that the current Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola is allegedly eyeing the same position is a question on everybody’s lips. It will be a waiting game as events unfolds.
