This is an illustration map of the 2011 Nigeria presidential election results. Buhari/CPC won in the red states while GEJ/PDP won in the green states. The state in blue is Osun where Ribadu/ACN won. I am just trying to remind us that GEJ defeated Buhari with over 10 million votes in this election.
4 years later in 2015, Buhari/APC managed to defeat the same GEJ/PDP with just a little over 2.5 million votes. I repeat;2.5 million voters made the difference in 2015.
Now, tell me why Buhari/APC and this darkness enveloping Nigeria won’t be easily kicked out in 2019 if we start building the right political alliance.
It is just 9 days into this year. This year is supposed to be the year to lay the foundations to rebuild Nigeria. The ball is in your court, let’s see how you kick it.
I stand for the restructuring of Nigeria to bring back the kind of federalism we had at independence. Anything short of that is a waste of time in my opinion.
