First of all, we know what’s up with the political situation in Nigeria. The Jonathans and buharis campaign and all of that. I wanted to write something about it a while now though am not wholeheartedly following the political trend. Here it is, something sparked it up and I’ll tell you.
While some are strongly behind Jonathan, others fall full swing with Buhari. And both candidates have political parties that stick out for them against all odds. But I remain objective. While I’ll say I really don’t care who gets in as long as chaos do not thrive, I’ll also say am anticipating who will sit on the presidential seat, that is some ounce of care I guess. Whether we like it or not..we all are politically inclined, however little the forms. So for those that say politics is a dirty game, am sorry you will have to shut up for some minutes and THINK.
You shout We are the leaders of tomorrow, yet you say all those bad stuff about Jonathan and buhari( you know who you oppose) and how politics in Nigeria has gone hullabaloo.
What am trying to understand is this. If one of us that sings so loud in people’s ears actually GET the CHANCE to rep this country at the political front, what GUARANTEE is there that you won’t be worse off? Okay, let me be positive like you would, maybe, just maybe, you would do us proud and well.
I do not understand the complexities surrounding the Nigeria politics and I bet some of us do not as well, we only judge by results, which is quite alright.
Someone wrote somewhere about the achievements of Jonathan( cassava production, 2011 free n fair elections, railways etc) and how he would not support Buhari nor vote him in based on that and am like ” Whoa! Mr Jona did all this and yet people condemn him? “ as the guy wrote. ( whether he actually did all that or not, can’t confirm its authenticity) My question, if he did all that, why is he still condemned? That means the people are not satisfied or he is in some ‘bad pot of soup’.
On the other hand, some say nice things about Sir Buhari ( disciplined, dedicated, strongwilled etc) so if he is all this, what’s wrong then? Looks like some feel he is blood thirsty and APC is a no go area for this presidential position.
And am tired of all the rantings about them, to top it all, INEC ( I really don’t know what they do there, would like a job there, i’ll just be sitting n staring, signing off papers in auto command) they postponed the elections. For what! Insecurity in some North east. For the records, we didn’t hear the details of such insecurities let alone the consent of the general public. The tension on this election thing is intense.
And they say APC is a subset of PDP, all mumbo jumbo… A beg, can’t we just abolish all these crazy political parties and start a fresh and natural one? I am personally tired of their gimmicks.
I know some people have packed up due to this election because they feel there would be chaos. God forbid that to happen. That’s the last thing we need especially with America and her foreign brethren watching, expecting something to happen. They even predicted bad on us.
Let me tell you the one thing Mr Jona and Sir Buhari have in common with the people.
The people are SCARED in a way.
Of whoever is going to rule them and you can’t blame them.
The former is in his fifties, they say he ruled Nigeria for 6years and has nothing to show for it, insurgency of the boko haram, electricity issues and more, he wants to go another term, Nigeria will just suffer under his arms.
The latter is in his seventies, a disciplinarian ( remember War Against Indiscipline or was it KAI?) a former military and a Muslim with people thinking he may islamize Nigeria if he wins, also may turn iron and rule with iron hands. SEE?
Well.. I think have said my mind pretty well. What I’ll like to ask is this. What is your take? Where do you stand in all this and WHY? Maybe you could even enlighten me or others and share one or two details we do not know on these candidates and the elections in general.
Who do you think stands for Nigeria?
Mr Jonathan OR
Who and why? What’s your Clarion Call?
