Nigerian high comic and sports activities analyst, Banard Gbadamosi, Aka Koboko Grasp, has mentioned that Nigerian youths will fail once more in 2023 regardless of the agitation that the youthful era ought to take over the management of the nation in an effort to change the nation’s political narrative.
In an interview with DAILY POST, the comic mentioned it’s going to be virtually unattainable for the youths to vary the narrative due to their mentality. He mentioned it’s solely in Nigeria that the youths are struggling, but afraid to die. In line with the comic, there is no such thing as a want being afraid to die when you find yourself already residing the lifetime of a useless man.
In line with Kobokomaster, ‘’ Have you learnt what it means to be alive, but you aren’t residing? Why are the youths afraid to take a place in opposition to these whose curiosity is to kill all of us? Why? As soon as, you may have web information to go surfing, however as soon as you might be offline, you might be unhappy. That’s not life. Individuals go to mattress depressed and get up the subsequent morning depressed due to the way in which we’re struggling, but we can’t change the narrative. Election in Nigeria is like subscription. Politicians subscribe us each 4 years. My level is that till the youths are prepared to carry politicians accountable for the belief we gave them, issues will stay the way in which they’re.
“Once more, this voting factor will not be working, and we have to cease it. How are you going to be voting somebody into energy each 4 years to oppress you? Sure, what brings these folks into energy is election and never riot. What we efficiently do each 4 years is that we use our personal arms to carry to energy our oppressors, so my very own is that till we’re certain that these persons are not our oppressors and that they’re leaders that may assist us to maneuver to the subsequent degree, let’s not vote in an election.
“It’s because I can’t come and stand underneath the solar to vote for my oppressors. That’s unwise. I can’t go away my home to face underneath the solar in a polling unit to defend the votes of my oppressors. I can’t. Till we’re prepared and certain that our choice will take us to a greater section of life, it quantities to effort in futility.’’
Lamenting the present state of affairs even after voting massively two years in the past for the present authorities, he mentioned, “Two years in the past, we voted for this authorities, and right here we’re at this time, going again to the identical causes we voted in a brand new authorities. 2023 is nearly right here.’’
Condemning the large amount of cash invested in elections within the nation, Kobokomaster mentioned, ‘’ That’s the half that kills me most. Nigeria ought to cease making elections too costly. If somebody needs to contest, let’s take a look at his pedigree as a substitute of permitting the improper folks to purchase our votes with their cash. We should always cease this stadium thought, calling musicians to carry out at campaigns, bringing artists, printing wrappers, caps, shirts, sharing salts, onions and a number of different inducements.
”Our elections are too costly. Why would somebody spend his life to persuade you? Why? And I feel that’s another excuse why these politicians are so corrupt. There’s a method somebody will beg you for one thing, and after stressing him a lot, and later agree to provide him that factor, will probably be tough for the particular person to understand you. ‘A thanks’ will probably be tough on the finish. The particular person will ordinarily really feel that the begging was sufficient appreciation. The identical applies within the case of our relationship with politicians.’’
Kobokomaster argued that the youths can have a voice so long as they’re upright and don’t go about accumulating cash from politicians whereas voting. In line with him, it’s solely then that their curses can work in opposition to these denying them the great issues of life. ‘’Let’s cease consuming a lot from them throughout campaigns,’’ he counselled.
