#Edo 2020: Time to change the metanarrative

Today our state is unarguably in dire need of a moral compass, competent leadership and this, I dare say, is what we represent.

Although Nigeria operates a purely capitalist economy, the incoming PPN administration in our state is going to be communitarian as obtains in developed societies particularly in that part of the Old World where the historic 2018 Turin Declaration took place – a gross departure from individualism which capitalism represents.

We often bear the brunt of their greed and resultant criminal stealing from those that want us to die and have our flesh fed to the vultures. This shows the subhuman nature of the African!

Do we have a phobia for education and intellectualism?

The internet today provides a paradigm shift in research, communication and general knowledge which should be properly exploited to to keep oneself reliably informed for some of us who still canvass support for a tribe of conmen which will create yet another avenue for criminality, ethnocentrism and a political tool for self-aggrandisement.

Time to change the metanarrative is now and this remains our bounden duty with your active support.

Vote merchandising is a hydra-headed evil and must be shunned in all forms. It is a dangerous anti-social practice which now hangs over our heads like the ancient sword of Damocles.

It has often brought in rulers that failed us spectacularly if we need reminding.

Today we enjoin our teeming supporters across the state to take the bull by the horns by going round to sensitize our local communities throughout the state on our redemption agenda and their voting rights.

This task though daunting but not unachievable. Stiff resistance from those who the rotten system benefit is not unexpected but we must be resolute as we go on a sortie in this salvage operations.

You can rest assured that our case is not going to be another Ize-Iyamu’s that was blatantly robbed of victory in the last dispensation via electoral fraud and like a marriage was annulled in Abuja and ultimately bastardized.
