NIGERIA 2019 GOVERNORSHIP ELECTIONS: FORETELLING THE OUTCOME

By Omoshola Deji Governing a state in Nigeria is equivalent to, or more demanding than, ruling some countries in Africa and the world.

Inconvenient

Governorship Elections

Election in Nigeria is more of a war than a contest. The benefits of public office attract people to politics and make them desperate for power. Candidates employ devious tactics to win, as if losing is punishable by death. They dish out hate speeches and uncouth statements without considering the imminent doom such could drag Nigeria into. Governor Nasir El-Rufai ...

Uju Kingsley Chima

She was plain and simple. She stepped her foot into my home. How she knew I was at home is what I don’t know.
