How frustrated and disappointed were you to hear the Nigerian elections had been postponed? You don’t even want to hear my rant.
Nevertheless, once again tomorrow Nigerians are expected to troop out and vote. Hopefully, you’ve had enough time to convince your brothers and sisters back home to vote wisely.
I am also hoping that they would have taken this time to reflect on the choice they plan to make. Some people believe the postponement has been used as an opportunity to commit electoral fraud. Evidently, trust is still a big issue which brings me to a video I found.
Raji Fashola has produced this video for his campaign. It’s absolutely moving kind of saying we’re in this together but are we really in it together?
All the same, I like that this video has gone beyond ” I will plant gardens everywhere and tar the roads as if that really puts electricity in my house and guarantees a mobile company won’t dig up the road tomorrow restoring it to rubbish.”
The video simply reminded me of the national pledge – …to be faithful, loyal and honest, to serve Nigeria with all my heart, to defend her unity and uphold her glory and honour so help me GOD.”
This is the time those words need to ring true in each of us. I sincerely hope it does as well in the hearts of all those who intend to serve.
P.S: The elections have once again been postponed but only in certain areas. Let’s hope and pray that we will all do the right thing.
