Veteran TVC journalist, Babajide Kolade Otitoju has been hugely criticized for the manner by which he analyze political events. Although the award winning journalist has severally talked highly of his own integrity, people feel he’s a loyal supporter of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and with his recent statement about the ruling party, he just might have let the cat out of the bag, albeit subconsciously.
On the Sunday episode of Journalists’ hangout, Babajide was of the opinion that the APC may lose Osun and Ekiti gubernatorial election if Mai Mala Buni is not removed as the caretaker chairman of the party. According to him, some powerful people are working against the success of the party, and should Buni continue as the chairman, they may live to regret it.
In as much as this statement may be true or not, it’s important to note that Mai Mala Buni is part of the APC members who don’t want Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to contest for the 2023 presidency and should he be removed, it’ll give the APC national leader some political advantage in the race to nominate the party’s representative.
The statement by Babajide Otitoju has made a lot of people to start doubting him, according to some people, Babajide is always quick to attack any policies made by the federal government but will never mention the former Lagos state governor even when the cases are being linked to him. Although it’s yet to be verified if Babajide Otitoju works incognito for Bola Ahmed Tinubu, he has just placed himself in a precarious situation as people will begin to doubt his intense criticism of the government.
Do you think Mr Otitoju is being partial in his political analysis of the government? Do you think his recent outburst will change people’s perception about him? Kindly share your opinion in the comment section.
