Nigerian politicians will never cease to amaze pundits, given their inordinate ambition to grab any opportunity that opens up. Though the unfortunate death of federal lawmaker and grassroots politician, honourable (Dr.) Elijah Olu Adewale, popularly known as JAH, may have thrust up an interesting jostling for the now vacant seat of the Ifako/Ijaiye/Ojokoro Federal constituency in the lower house of the National Assembly.

The attention of the Senate Minority Leader, Senator Godswill Akpabio has been drawn to a sensational story making the rounds in the social media and circulated by the Akwa Ibom State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) with a screaming headline: "Breaking News! 2015 A'Ibom polls: Fear grips Akpabio over arrest of Supreme Court Justices."

Dreams are precious desires that everyone would want to achieve with a great passion, but for the mercurial public relations practitioner, who found himself in politics by chance, and for reasons best known to people, he was being positioned as the next governor of Ondo State. Though, that is a stale story, as he is now been touted as a senatorial candidate.

In Ekiti, the reputable Fountain of Knowledge, grassroots politics have proved to be the soul of electoral and polemical engagements. Governor Ayo Fayose employed this quite successfully in routing out former Governor Kayode Fayemi, who was known to be so superior in the political arithmetic of Ekiti State. He also used the same strategy in his first coming as governor, but those who are in the mainstream of Ekiti State politics will vouch that Femi Banisile is a force to reckon with.
