Jonathan Or Buhari; A Case For The West? by dafoly: 12:00pm On Dec 16, 2014

It is no longer news that the state of Nigeria’s polity has gone beyond personality and reputation but that of regionalism and religious sentiments. The state of the nation is what I called “tragedy at its peak”. Yet the citizens seem not to be factually concern rather, they are selfishly carried away.

The 2015 general election is gradually drawing closer, with the political gladiators brimming up their political tactics. The two main political candidates vying for the presidential seat include the incumbent president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan, of the PDP, and former military head of state, Rtd. Gen. Mohammed Buhari, of the APC.

These two parties i.e. Jonathan and Buhari are purposely determined to take over the Villa at Aso Rock. Rtd. Gen. Mohammed Buhari is a Northerner, and has enjoyed massive support from his region. On the other hand, Dr Goodluck Jonathan is a southerner who, as well, is also enjoying massive support from his region most especially from the south-south, and the south-east part of the country.

Moreover, followers of the two political camps have cited their reasons for supporting their persons, for examples, they’ve cited the case of corruption, insecurity, economic development, stability, excessive malignancy and alienation, and political interest.

Though several allegations are all up in the polity, but the truth must be told that supportership is influenced simply on regionalism. It is so rare to see a southerner supporting a Buhari, and a northerner supporting the candidature of Jonathan. And with the regional syndrome’s influence on the electorate, then the big question arise “WHAT SHALL SEPARATE THESE TWO?”

The answer to this big question, which I believe, is the WEST. The candidate who wins the hearts and votes of the western electorates will definitely win the presidential election coming up in the first quarter of 2015. Years back, the western region was known as the Wild Wild West because of its incessant political unrest in the region. The western part of the country has a big and decisive role to play in the upcoming presidential election.

In the 2011 presidential election, it was a keenly contested election between these same political gladiators. In which Dr Goodluck Jonathan defeated his opponent. In that same election, Buhari won in most states in the northern region and Jonathan won the Eastern and Southern part of the country. With their exploits in their respective regions, it wasn’t enough to won any of them the election. The votes, in the western region, had to come to the rescue of Jonathan to be victorious.

The decisive fate may also be declared by the western region in this coming presidential election. It is now left for the electorate to peruse, without the altercation of thought, into the Nigeria’s state of being, and vote wisely for the RIGHT ONE.

I dedicate this write-up to my indefatigable lecturer Late Mr. Ayeni G.O.

And the same SW has been clearly marginalized by the man from Otuoke and so he shall be sent packing by the South Westerners.

Plus the fact that we in the SW abhor corruption especially be those who are incompetent to perform.
