2 Things Have Happened As A Result Of Obi Winning 12 States In The Presidential Election- Dr. Ikokwu

As Nigerians prepare to step out once again on Saturday, March 18, 2023, to cast their votes in gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections, renowned journalist, and political analyst, Dr. Constance Ikokwu has come out to reveal two key things that have suddenly happened in the nation's political space since Peter Obi and the Labour won 12 states in the presidential elections conducted two weeks ago.

Speaking during an interview on ARISE TV's 'Prime Time' program with Charles Aniagolu a few hours ago, Dr. Ikokwu pointed out that not only have Nigerians suddenly realized the power they possess in terms of dislodging bad leaders through the ballots, but they have come to also realize that systemic and political change is a gradual process that cannot be achieved at once.

"There is indeed a lot of attention on INEC, people are gravely concerned and truly worried, and they are hoping that what happened during the last election will not happen again during the governorship polls. But you know what? Because there have been changes, Labour Party won twelve states to the shock of many persons and two things have happened since then.

First of all, people have realized that they actually have the power to blow sit-tight leaders out of the political waters if they really come out to vote, regardless of the obstacles and glitches put before them. Secondly, people are also realizing that maybe this struggle to change things might not be a 100-meter dash but a marathon. So, people are beginning to fasten their seatbelts because they are not willing to allow things to stay the same way anymore. So, even if in the governorship elections, the Labour Party does not get all the states it wants, this movement is still going to continue. It is going to be a marathon.
