POLITICAL FOCUS AND THE TRAJECTORY TOWARDS 2023 ELECTIONS.

Fmr. CROSIEC Chairman.
Change is constant and we must learn to flow and adapt to the tenets of the basic rule.
From the era of voters manipulation, ballot stuffing, snatching, vote-buying, use of thugs, incidence forms which introduced another level of manipulation to the glorious signing into to law and the now welcomed BVAS( Biomodal Voter Accreditation System), the place and value of every single voter will no doubt be recognised and given priority.
Political superstars will now have to do more to endear themselves to the voters. Any aspirant who dwells so much, banks and patronises talebearers, professional blackmailers, liars and hopes on thuggery, may have to increase the intensity of their prayers.
This however restores the dignity of voters and community based and trusted leaders whose voices are weighty given their record of service, not political titles and criminal manipulations.
It is also important to examine the credentials, integrity and acceptability of candidates. We must also understand that a good product does not require excessive advertisement but a bad and faulty one takes so much from the seller to push out possibly.
This is another face of our democracy that we consider as “work in progress”.
It is therefore advisable that emphasis on party politics must be reconsidered if true, selfless, genuine and expected representation will be attained.
We must also not forget the law of seasons as every position in life is transient hence the need to support and encourage those who mount the saddle for the good of all, especially in a tenured office.
I pray we learn our lessons and apply knowledge before the next outing.
