Asiwaju Tinubu, national leader, APC, engineered the first takeover of power by the opposition in Nigeria in 2015. He was the only politician standing as governor of Lagos state, southwest Nigeria between 1999 and 2007. This was a period the political blitzkrieg unleashed by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) under former President Olusegun Obasanjo swept the southwest like a tsunami and all opposition governors lost their seats. Tinubu retained his seat and administered Lagos state for eight progressive years without a cent/kobo from the PDP-controlled Federal Government
