    Tell me how we can get good candidates to run.

    Now the money bags will pay on people’s behalf, then hold the entire country at random later.
    This is very wrong!

    Big questions: How do Nigeria,encourage individuals with knowledge and vision to run for elections without having them sold to the highest bidder, who will come back to torment all of us?
    How do we transparently run for an affordable election?

      The answer is to run under a different party.

      Currently, INEC has a register which lists scores of those lesser known political groups. Now, the problem is that some of those parties were registered without any real intent to upset the status quo – it’s basically a case of making noise, mobilizing your own campaign for an elected position and hoping to get noticed. Then, if you are, you strike some sort of arrangement before votes are cast and eventually decamp to one of the larger sharks in the tank.

      So, if you can find one that aligns with your ethos and are ready to reinject life into its manifesto, pick it out of the list and run under it. Otherwise, feel free to add to INEC’s list and register a new party….. but there are options, even though it’s seemingly one of David fighting Goliath (and don’t forget how that story ends as well 🙂 ).
