Raw, authentic, unfiltered.
I flinch at interviewing politicians except they are ready to have truly honest conversations.
So for my very first interview with a politician, I went for a man who has never balked from speaking his truth.
Call this a crash course on Nigerian politics and governance.
The Interesting Tale called Nigerian Politics!
I asked Sen. Jimi Agbaje a daring question; I said to him, “If Bola Tinubu called you and said: Next election, you are the candidate, what would you say?”
His response was shocking!
He responded by saying, “It’s not just about having power for the sake of it because I could have been Deputy Governor back then. A lot of people abused me at the time and called me a foolish man, they said, ‘You were offered the post of the deputy governor, and you didn’t take it’. I responded by explaining the fact that the price meant I had to disown my origin and That was not going to happen!”
Sen. Jimi is audacious!
He made it very clear to me that being governor had to be on the right terms – His own terms!
I enjoyed every bit of this conversation!
