MEDIA WOMAN SHOULD HAVE NO OPINION OF POLITICS, IF OTHERWISE STAY QUIET ABOUT IT.
In 2014 when i decided to made an active effort in this media space one of the many things i learnt in the conferences and media seminar was media personalities are non partisan, because like we all know influential one media personality’s opinion can shake up in favor of a party or otherwise. 24 YEARS OF Democratic transition of power, and honestly the dynamics of what used to be a 2 party system has been shaken up in just a direction of what no one saw coming. maybe after the election and a new president emerges and is a primary personality. to take Nigeria to this land flowing with milk and honey as Moses the people of Israel .
it is less than 78hours into the most anticipated elections yet, its my first time voting and i don’t know how to place it, its in between excitement and worrisome , excitement because knowing that my vote counts and these politicians know that i know and think their 5000 0r even 5million cant make me change my mind is exciting and worrisome of course because this is an African country, elections can go from amazing to more amazing, but i am preserved.
A few days ago i went to my tailor’s or is it designers you people call it? i saw a party campaign party giving crumbs to the residents of that neighborhood oh sorry i mean 1kg of semo and trust the people who had been without access to cash for almost a month, without fuel, whose means of livelihood has dwindled over the years with zero accountability and no prospect to be better.
Years have become months, months have become week, weeks, days and now all we have left and prayers, altars raised for a peaceful election and a democratic transition of power. Do not worry this is not a ‘WHO TO VOTE’ post. Unlike a popular Nigerian Television Host who openly pledge her alliance to a particular candidate,siting Oprah has her motivation, i have learnt that with politics, people have their right to hold preferences, like what you prefer to have for breakfast, but unlike breakfast you can decide to have a change of hear mid preparation, and we 8 years, and if we are lucky 4 years after policies are made that would change the course and trajectory of our lives.So voting wisely shouldn’t be sang like a plea for a bright future,but as a chance to live and live in favorably condition. I like to believe we have Nigerians who have conscience, if you haven’t allowed hunger, tribalism,the promise for contract or the love for stagnancy and toxicity.
YOUR VOTE COUNTS AND THEY KNOW.
HOME OR DIASPORA. THIS ELECTION WILL BE ONE FOR THE BOOKS. GENERATIONS TO COME. EVERYONE IS COUNTING ON YOUR DECISION. THE FUTURE IS COUNTING ON YOUR PRESENT TO START RIGHT. THAT BEING SAID I WANT TO GO LOOK FOR HOW TO BUY NAIRA NOTE WITH NAIRA IN MY BELOVED COUNTRY.
