The general election of 2019 appears to have started in earnest as some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bakin Kasuwa, Zaria, Kaduna state were on Monday May 23, seen burning their brooms and switched to the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Party politics as practiced in Nigeria tend to differ slightly from the way politics is being played from the rest of the world. We can change party(ies) like we are changing cloths. Why? Because, there is no ideology and principles in place that guide the political parties. So, people switch loyalty at random.

Could one possibly attribute this to politicians who join politics primarily and wholly for their own selfish interest and not that of the people? If you draw such conclusion, you might not be wrong considering what’s happening in our polity. The other day, the former national chairman of APC, Pa Bisi Akande said that, “rich legislatures are leading the poorest people of Nigeria’.

Looking at such statement, Bisi Akande could be 100% right. It’s not only the law makers that could be linked to what Akande said; how about the executive arms of the government? Certainly, one can say that the poor are left to continue to wallow in poverty while the rich (politicians) continue to enrich themselves.

No wonder, politics seems to be bloody these days. They are not fighting for you. If they do, they wouldn’t even bulldoze just anybody to get there. They are fighting for themselves and not the masses. The masses are helpless. Check out how the people are expressing their angry by setting ablaze APC broom symbol. See more photos...
