The forthcoming 2019 election is set to be a straight fight between APC and PDP – no doubt?
With a Buhari/Osinbajo (APC) ticket in one party and an Atiku/Obi (PDP) ticket on the other, my question is to the Yoruba nation about our collective good or collective interest as a group.
This is not the time to be shy or try to be holier than thou.
Under all sort of pretences, every group is presently trying to look after themselves. Don’t just be deceived as we don’t have that United Nigeria yet.
This is our present reality in Nigeria until it changes – hopefully in the future. Both Atiku and Buhari are Fulani Muslims. Whether it is an Atiku or a Buhari Presidency the north wins.
Both Osinbajo and Obi are southern Christian and both probably Pentecostal.
The competition is really going to be between South West and South East.
I am guessing the South East will massively vote for their own – so PDP! You can’t blame them as they’ve always voted PDP anyway.
So please reflect carefully and answer me sincerely as a Yoruba.
- Which ticket APC or PDP serves the Yoruba nation better under the current situation?
- What would be the compelling reason to support a ticket that disadvantages your own group? I personally cannot remember a time in history when the South East collective vote has benefitted the South West.
As popular as June 12, 1993 mandate given to our dear MKO, whose life was later sacrificed for this democracy was, South East didn’t vote for him then. He won in only 1 state of old Anambra, he lost the other 3 states then who voted massively for Tofa.
I plead with Yorubas sons and daughter to massively vote for OSINBAJO, the best vice president we have ever had, an in law to the best president of Nigeria we never had, Baba Awolowo.
He is our son we should be proud of. One of our best, sound with impeachable integrity. Please let us vote wisely. Time to drop any emotional attachment to PDP is now.
God bless you.
Note: Please share with your Yoruba contact, engage in a discussion and convince yourself fairly as you make a decision.
