When it comes to the questions of 2019, if we have options, I will categorically state that we do have options and no one should limit our options to mere party names. I engaged some youths in an intense enlighten debate yesterday, simply to share our thoughts and understanding of situation reports, with regards to the jamboree and show of might called elections in Ekiti State, which held on 14th July 2018.
The crux of our debate and engagement rallies on the options if any, before Nigerians in the forth coming 2019 general elections. The debate no doubt invoked some emotions, as tempers were rising, voices thundering and calmness colder than ice, as we all try to either make our views known or simply assimilating what the next guy just said.
It is worthwhile to note that at the end of it all, we all had a good laugh, few hugged each other, and everyone left with their shoulders held high, with the presumed knowing that they have at least contributed to a debate, which may likely shape the destiny of the nation and the future of the unborn.
The strong point was that this generation of Nigerians should not be limited to the option of either PDP or APC, but rather we should have independent candidates, as the difference between APC and PDP (CUPP) is simply the difference between 6 and half a dozen; it’s simply semantics.
We have grown beyond that stage as a nation, where the option of who is best “qualified” to be our president, will only have to be Buhari or Atiku for instance . There is no gain saying the fact that they have served their usefulness to the nation, and should therefore begin to learn how to rest their bodies peacefully, before their souls eventually rest in peace.
It has become imperative then, that options before us in 2019 is not APC or CUPP (PDP), as all they are good at is coming up with strategies to win elections and not strategies on how to govern the nation. We therefore beckon on all to have their loins guarded, as we get ready to vote in or vote out in the upcoming elections, not on the basis of party, religion, ethnicity or otherwise. If we fail to do this, we will continue to have same crop of “dead brain and vision less” politicians Lord over us. Even in recycling business, the end product from the recycling process are useful, how come the politicians who have been recycled from all the parties have never been productive?
We are better than this, no one should dare to convince us otherwise. Nigeria has a great future and that future lies in our hands now! Don’t lose it!
