Nobody can ignore Tinubu, says Ikpeazu

As we approach the 2023 presidential election, how do you rate the chances of the candidates?
I wouldn’t want to make any predictions now. But, for me, I still believe that the PDP presidential candidate still needs to do one or two things just like I think Obi still has to do one or two things going forward. As for Tinubu, he is a very experienced politician and a very good strategist. If he is in his element, he is going to be very formidable at the end of the day because they never gave him a chance to emerge at the primary, but he emerged somehow. So, that same thing could play out. If I’m in this race, I’ll not ignore Tinubu. I will not also ignore any of the candidates. But, I don’t want us to make religion or ethnicity a major factor because it will further divide us. We’re already broken as a country and we don’t need to put another hot knife through our butter.

2023 General elections: INEC will succeed

Many Nigerians believe that election is democracy and democracy is elections. What has seemingly helped to establish that maxim or belief in the hearts and minds of many of our people is that quip that says that voting is our civic responsibility.
Part of the problem with that kind of emblematic statement, and particularly with its framers heretofore is that voting on election day has been made to look as if it the only area of responsibility for civilians and the general populace. Yes, voting is one of our responsibilities as stakeholders but certainly not the only one of them.
We are making this clarification for the benefit of our people, and to make it clear that even though elections is one very important aspect of the processes that usher in a democracy, it is not the silver bullet that we all think it is. We have observed over the years that our people are hardly interested in any other processes that precede the elections or those that come after it, except perhaps to participate in riots if a preferred candidate has not won.
