Keep The Fire Burning We Are CLOSE: Why We Must Remain Obidient To The End By Smart Omo-Idemudia.
“I don’t know whether you have them in your house. Just ask them, ‘Which party are you?’, they say ‘Obidients’; you understand. They do not want us; they are not talking about PDP or APC. They are looking for alternatives and they are many. You see all of them queuing for their PVCs now. They are not looking at the direction of PDP or APC now. They are looking for alternatives.”
Those have been the precise phrases of the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, who spoke to his get together members on the PDP secretariat in Edo State a number of days in the past. His statements are a testomony to what Nigerians are craving for: a change within the method the nation is presently ruled.
What a slap on the faces of the 2 main political events. Of course, Godwin Obaseki has seen the sunshine and acknowledged the necessity for Nigerians to embrace constructive change, a metamorphosis pushed by sincerity and integrity slightly than deception, as is presently demonstrated by the APC and the PDP.
There is presently a temper of anger within the political system that has been stirring throughout the federation, and as a substitute of turning away from the rotten system, the folks have determined to hunt a better say in issues affecting their day by day lives, they usually wish to turn out to be more practical contributors within the political course of by voting out the 2 dominant events. This is what we name the peoples mandate and it wants no construction.
It is vital to rule with the belief of the folks; the battle will probably be titanic and troublesome, however Nigerians will succeed, simply as they did in South Africa, France, and, most lately, Ukraine. Using Ukraine for instance, Volodymyr Zelensky, a lawyer and comic, defied the system by defeating an incumbent President with over 73 p.c of the vote with a celebration created in lower than two years.
The heavens wouldn’t fall if Peter Obi wins the following presidential elections.This is what we should do to maintain the hearth burning.
Did you notice that solely roughly 40% of registered voters really vote?
Are you conscious that the 60 p.c of people that decline to vote are drained and sick of the best way the nation is run, however they’re unsure that their votes will probably be counted?
Are you conscious that of the 40% who vote, 80% are affiliated with a political get together? So how can we count on adjustments when the individuals who supposed the nation to fail are the bulk turning out to vote on election days?
As a end result, we should attain out to the undecided and clarify why they have to vote, in addition to reassure them that Peter Obi is a legit choice. We have a variety of work forward of us, however the fact is that the governing class, resembling Obaseki, makes the work simpler with their confession of getting failed us.
The incontrovertible fact that Obaseki is contemplating becoming a member of the Labour Party demonstrates that there’s a actual various to the tax collectors and Godfathers who’re feeding fats on our shared wealth.
Nigeria is the World’s Poverty Capital, because of the identical Grandfathers who refuse to permit their Children and Grandchildren with revolutionary and artistic concepts to rule.
We should hold the hearth burning and maintain the mileage we’ve made with the continued voters registration , gradual and regular they are saying wins the race. We should be OBIDIENT to the tip.
