If only Nigerians can say no to free money
Then they will be able to elect a good leader in a general election.
If only Nigerians will say no to free rice, garri and others
Then Nigerians will be able to choose a good leader.
If only Nigerians can say no to religious bigotry and tribalism
Then Nigerians will be able to vote wisely like they have never done in their history.
Alas! These people are too hungry to reject free foodstuffs
They are too broke to reject free money at polling booths
And they are too religious and ethnocentric to do what is right.
Before past elections, Nigerians would say
We would do it right this time and at the end
They did it the wrong way and they suffered the sufferness they shouldn’t have suffered.
Another election is here again
Will Nigerians do it right this time?
Will Nigerians let go of free money at polling booths and do what is right?
Will Nigerians reject free rice that their oppressors have ordered from Thailand and chase their oppressors away from the seat of power?
Will Nigerians see beyond the false manifestoes that would be read to them and do what is right?
Will the northern majority, southern and western folks agree for the first time to do what is right?
Like the way I have been doing in the time past, I will educate those around and leave them to decide on that day.
