Politics on the domestic and world stage is being dictated by the bourgeoisie. The word bourgeoisie is a German word meaning the wealthy, the Capitalist or those who are affluent and flamboyantly rich.
For those who studied history would definitely agree that no revolution occurred outside the affluent. During the Arusha declaration,they all agreed to stage a revolution in such away that they would undermine the privilege but they also agreed that they needed money to pursue their vision. Nothing cannot be done outside wealth.

The Bourgeoisie dictates the political taste. Many of them are God sent. They are the vehicle to reshape the world. Many political administrations that hit the bricks was as a result of undermining their potentials. They can make or mar.
In a situation where we have among them who shows interest in rebuilding the “wall of Jerusalem,” by way of alleviating the poverty stricken masses,revamping the economy,social and political landscape such among them must be embraced they are sent by divinity.
Certain write-up filtered just recently on a social media, on a blog by a blogger. The attention of many of us who wants good for our state was drawn to it. In that said write up, unsavoury words, words that are perfidious were used to the extent that certain individuals were referred to as “errand boy”. I want to be sure that it was a mistake, when such a word was used.
Election truly has gone, what we are into now is politicking. However, words and expressions that we know are capable of widening the gap within the Reactionaries must be put on hold. We must not try to do anything we know is capable of destroying our good works and legacies bestow on us by the gone and alive leaders.
Let me state that according to William Shakespeare Leadership could be gotten in three dimensional ways. He said in his words that “Some are born great, some achieve it by dint of hard work, some have it entrusted upon them”. This will be explained later.
It’s not news again to say that the head of the Legislators in Osun State of the 8th assembly has been zoned to Osun Central. For the purpose of those who do not know where Osun Central belongs to, it starts from Osogbo down to Ora, which means there are 10 out of the 30 Local governments including the area office recognised by the Federal government sums it up to 31.

In the arrangements of positions, Olorunda and Osogbo Local Governments have gotten the slot of SSG. The rest local governments that constitutes the Federal Constituency in that circle have been taken care of. Ila, Boluwaduro and Ifedayo has the Senator, what is left now is IBO Federal Constituency.
From the look of things, IBO Federal Constituency has been given the opportunity to produce the next Speaker who is equally the number three citizen in Osun State.
The contest for those who do not understand or those who did not undergo any course in communication could not really decipher the handwriting on the wall preferred to be reprobate about. In communication there are different ways by which anyone could communicate, it could be verbal and nonverbal. The two methods highlight has been used by the power concerns.
Not fewer than two to three meetings had been summoned by the Authorities on who would be the number three citizens. It has been spelt out on such different forums.
Could we agree that it was a deliberate attempt on the part of the agitators to keep on pressing, pursuing shadows and beating air as if they were drunk with powers?. Where lies party supremacy?
The present leadership of the PDP in Osun State should beware of moles that are capable of turning themselves to a friend, those who allow position to becloud their sense of loyalty. Loyalty must be total. Anyone who profess to be PDP must move towards what the leadership is saying, otherwise such will dance the dance of shame.
The decision has been made. Leadership has resolved that they are moving to Odo-Otin for the number three position. What remains now is unalloyed support for the success of inauguration on June 6th. Care must be taken not to thwart the liberty and peaceful co-existence of the party. Any individual or group hiding under unregistered group to cause trouble either through the fifth columnist or what have you would be penalised.
Why trepidations? PDP has the highest number of Members -Elect. No party has their number in the House as at the last count. Leaders emerge and evolve naturally. Many writers opined that the battle is between Hon. Tajudeen Adeyemi and Hon Wale Egbedun alas! no battle at all.
The decision makers have made their decision and Odo-Otin has taken the baton from Ijesa man who oversees the Legislative arm. What else do we still want? Anyone that is not ready to dance to the beats of the leaders and decision makers should withdraw.
Hugging and embracing party line of actions has a lot of advantages that could not be overemphasised. It will be so calamitous to disregard the effects of the two forces of centripetal and centrifugal. Both forces are in favour of Hon. Wale Egbedun.
