When your soul overflows with manipulation and your hands are in every evil. After a while you begin to physically look the part. Shifty, beady eyes and all…
1. Your restlessness, distractions, actions and inactions at grassroots level whilst #StarBoy was on ministerial national assignment brought to life an otherwise manageable benign situation within the Political Fold in the state…. Not even minding your discrete fraternization with #Osoko
2. You offered at least 2 Co-aspirants deputy governorship slot for your Dead On Arrival Gubernatorial Aspiration at the expense of Loyalty to “StarBoy”.

In conclusion, the tale of the two AJIROBAS won’t be complete if I don’t use these two phrases….
“An old woman is always uneasy when dry bones are mentioned in a proverb.” and “When you’re outstanding, you aren’t limited to a corner”.
If you are an Ajiroba, choose from the above which favors your situation.
