So as was the case in 2011 & 2015 the presidential elections has been postponed… What’s the full jist behind this? We can never be too certain as to what to believe when it comes to issues concering Nigeria.
Is the Inec chairman under duress? Is he workimg under the influence of one of the big guns?
Or is he averting a terrible work of indiscretion against Nigeria?
Am not really surprised when things like this happens again in Nigeria, my whole factor and concern is on how Nigerians who are crying for change in governance and administration of power in Nigeria are taking this election as if Nigeria’s operating a Binary Political party system…
There’s a total of 73 (Seventy three) political candidates for 2019’s presidentian election; and every one is basically fixated on Buhari and Atiku. Out of a total of five (5) Democratic presidential elections conducted in Nigeria from February 27th 1999 to the supposed today 16th February 2019, President M. BUHARI has contested in four (4) losing in three (3) of these his runnings for the presidency, he’s finally won and ultimately done nothing in office (my personal views though) and yet he still wants to run.
Nigerians has to wake up from this slumber, we are glad and giddy when we hear the Likes of Emmanuel Macron being a young individual rising to the highest position in a State, we are glad of the likes of Mark Zuckerberg, the works and rise of Bill Gates in his youth, but as Nigerians even the youths been mostly political apathetic do not concern themselves with the core intricacies of the happenings and their reasons in Nigeria… we’ve a young person running for President or should I say a score of young individuals in the current list of 73 presidential candidates… Take Fela Durotoye for example (not that am endorsing him, shoot! I am..)
There’re seventy one other choices for us to make, damn!!
The man is a young person, putting aside plans (which is overall important) here’s an individual whose young and new face and chance in changing the current status quo of our current government, but individuals tend to work and go with familiarities even though it’s killing them in their faces.
There’s anew light emerging in Nigeria; the supposedly lazy youths are waking up and beginning to stand on the frontlines of government and other important sectors of the Nigerian society and economy, they may not be able to play the political game the way it’s always been played but the fact that there is a little light, a ray of hope… it should be cherished and nutured till it becomes a bright blazing light eradicating any trace of stale and old in Nigeria.
Nigerians has been speaking concerning this trend and issue, it’s been hyped though due to the current postponement of the election dates; some views are presented here:
Nigerians do always tend to complain about the current governments we find ourselves under, no one person would sufficiently please a country of 170 million people, that’s the truth of it… but if we’re only gonna be complaining about a particular set of people over a set time of years, then we should check our desire to see the change we all yearn for in Nigeria.
It’s amost like a scam now! The idea of democratic voting and election has been basterdised, political candidates take their rise into power as going to the supermarket and purchasing their seat and way into power. Vote Buying, rigging, political payoffs, bribery…
Overall; most of these individuals do not have the best interest of Nigeria or Nigerians at heart: tie up loose ends, pay up their selves and bank accounts, eat of the national cake. Two sides of the same coin
The truth is, if we want a change the change has to be totally and completely attained; Nigeria has to reach a level where there’s no trace of rigging or any of the other known shady acts associated with elections, free and fair has to be as it is and not just meaning that there was no blood shed or violence during the electoral process. The youths seeking the rise in governance and admistrative power has to come into power in a clean and evil free way and process. I dare say this is very much attainable if we but believe and put ourselves as Nigerians to it…
This current political powers have understood the game of politics and the hearts and thoughts patterns of Nigerians. Most Nigerians are already backing out and showing vexation towards the postponed election date. If we want to make this work in Nigeria we’ve to be able to reason as these political giants are and outwit them in their own game… come out en mass and vote for the right choice… think of our choices again and vote for the right choice, I don’t think this can be overemphasized.
Good work to the corp members who risked it out in servitude to their country, an unrelenting spirit is whats needed, we may die but our blood will continue our cry for change and freedom.
