Why wait till you're Methuselah?

The rumors have been confirmed, the elections in Nigeria have been postponed and I'm not smiling about it. INEC has had four years to prepare. Is the Jega led commission incompetent? When the postponement talks began, allegedly by the PDP, I hoped it wouldn't see the light of the day. An excuse is that people have not gotten their PVCs. Abeg, anyone interested in voting would have gotten it. People traveled to the centers they registered to get it. It's not possible for everyone to go and get their PVCs. The security forces who have not been able to wipe out insurgency in years would do so in 6 weeks? That would be a wonderful development. I want to believe the decision to postpone is not a biased or influenced one. I loved how Mr Jega wasn't aggressive or upset during the question and answer session. God help him and the commission. We'll be watching and praying.

I lost my zeal briefly during the broadcast but it's back. Please don't lose yours too. Else, do not try to complain about bad governance during the next administration because you chose to fold your arms. God spare our lives far beyond March 28th and April 11th. Vote for the candidate you believe is competent and reliable. 

I have my preferred candidates but I'm afraid they may not be any better. You know how sweet people are when they want something and how they suddenly change when they have it. Even my small dog does that. They forget they would need us again soon because we always let them get away with it. They get the seat and it is only their family members that feel their impact. The rest of us can walk the streets for years job hunting or take jobs beneath our qualifications just to keep body and soul together. A silly babe recently questioned her father's "manhood" on social media upon seeing a politician's child's luxurious lifestyle. I understand how she felt but should her father become a shameless, godless and insensitive thief so she can travel the world and wear the most expensive labels? We will hustle and our hustle will take us around the world. Amen!

Seriously, we should stop debating and get involved in politics, to make a change and not grow a fat tummy. Why can't you at 40/50years be a governor/president? Why wait till you're Methuselah? Finally, vote for a candidate because you believe in his "gospel" not because you believe your pockets may be inflated. Such inflation is only temporary.

Thank you for reading bloghearts. I would love to read your opinions so please leave a comment. Xo, Anuoluwapo.

Contrary to what you think about people getting their pvc, the hubster hasn't gotten his cos according to the inec officials, his has not been printed so its not ready. After searching for hours, so you see there may be a lil sense in postponement.

You speak for many people on this issue. The postponement is needless irrespective of how you look @ it. INEC, which has autonomy on the elections says they are ready, what then is the problem? It's delay tactics but March is just around d corner. We shall be watching.
