The forth coming election brings different feelings and questions
to peoples mind; can we depend on INEC?, will it be free and fair?,
or dictated by PDP?, will it be
non-violent?, what new changes will occur?.
These and much more are the questions on peoples mind, some people
have made up their minds not to register talkless of voting, afterall
we do so all the time and eventually we get a government of the people(high class)
for the people(masses) by the people(high class).
The youth constitute up to 70 percent of the entire population, that indeed is
a very high number, that is to say with such number we can influence things to
a certain level. Starting with the utilization of youth corpers for the entire exercise.
I want to believe that we have a say, but thats if we decide to use the power we have,
all youths should endeavour to register and eventually vote, that change we want so badly
starts from now.
i have this question on my mind, how do most people decide on who to vote for?
do we consider their looks; how executive they look in their campaign posters?, or by their words?,
of course we know that in Nigerian politics "Talk is cheap" or by the material gifts we have
been given e.g money, food items etc.or by their past services?
No youth should vote for any politician who tries to buy them with gifts, also those who
want a return, when in actual fact did nothing in the past four years. Remember what Nigeria
lacks and need now are not just mere politicians but good leaders who have vision of what
they intend to do, a leader that has an agenda and systematic ways of achieving it.
At least one state i am not scared for is lagos, if Fashola comes in the second time,
we can all be sure to see more dividends of democracy.
To all the youths; vote wisely, vote for your future.
