I know some voices are whispering to you not to vote either President Buhari or Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar. They want you to vote for any of the younger 3rd force candidates (Fela Durotoye, Omoyele Sowore, Kingsley Moghalu & co) While their concerns may be genuine, the truth is – that’s not going to happen in this election.
Maybe in 2023, the above candidates may have a chance, after we – the people will also change our mentality.
There are 774 local government in Nigeria and 119,973 polling units, how many of the 3rd force candidate above have an existing structure across all the LGAs and the financial wherewithal to fight the two major contenders?
Barely 23 days to 2019 elections and they are yet to agree on a consensus candidate? Or a ‘coalition’ of some sort at best.
This tells you how unserious they are and it brings to the fore their lack of understanding of how politics work in the region and how the electorates reason.
If you must vote, don’t waste your votes on
In case you forgot, in the 2015 elections, ACPN (Obi Ezekwesili) got a total of 40,000 votes and they came a distant third.
Use your brain,
