In the early hours of today, a well known Nigerian politician from the north named Buba Galadima was granted an interview on Arise News where he spoke about the concluded presidential election.
Buba Galadima said, "I think Nigeria's politics, during the presidential election, was bedeviled by religious and ethnic sentiments. The christian (and Muslim) religious leaders were a disappointment during the election. Instead of them to preach about the morality behind public service, they acted like God and chose their preferred presidential candidate."
Speaking further, Buba Galadima said, "I think the election will serve as a lesson for Nigerians that no one should be deceived by a presidential candidate's religion or language."
Lastly, Buba Galadima said, "I realized that some Nigerian electorates were bribed with indomie noodles. Instead of them to vote for those who will push them out of abject poverty, they rather voted for those who bribed them."
