As 2023 general elections in Nigeria are drawing nearer, politicians, political parties, and the masses are getting ready by the day. While interested politicians are searching for supports from stakeholders, political parties are getting ready as evidently seen in the ongoing Registration, and Revalidation excise of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC).
On the part of individual Nigerians who are the major stakeholders in all elections, whom and whom not to vote for is a difficult decision they must make before the days of these elections.
Although that decision may be difficult for some Nigerians to take, a lot of others have already decided on regions where their votes will not go, if presidential candidate(s) emerged from that region.
Talking about that decision, persons like Chigozirim Emeakayi has at least, spelled out a region in the country where his vote will never go in the coming presidential election.
Chigozirim Emeakayi is a strong supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, and a staunch member of the ruling All Progressive Congress. The Anambra born civil Servant is not hiding his decision when it comes to politics at all.
Despite the fact that, President Buhari, and the APC are not very popular in the Southeastern Nigeria, Chigozirim and a few others are not ready to stop supporting the president and the party. Chigozirim has been advocating for peaceful Nigeria. Unlike others, he is one of the several citizens who strongly believe in One United Nigeria
A while ago, Chigozirim shocked many of his Facebook followers when her repeated what he allegedly said in 2017 on his Facebook page. He was reacting to the ongoing APC Membership Registration and Revalidation in Anambra, his home state.
According to him, APC officials, carrying out the excise in his ward are doing their job with high level of fear. He alleged that, the officials have to remove all signs that could pass a message to the people that, such excise in going on in the place.
Chigozirim was shocked to have seen people of the region that ought to have thrown themselves all out for the purpose of clinching the presidential seat from president Buhari in 2023 in that behavior.
From his explanation, it could be seen that, some group of persons in the area do not want the party to increase the number of their members in the local government or state.
At the later part of the Facebook post, Chigozirim who is also an Igbo man, vowed never to vote for any Igbo man, vying for the office of the President in the 2023 presidential election. I will be the last idiot to vote for an Igbo man in 2023, he said. See the post below:
If I may quickly add something here, I would say that, Igbos are not doing themselves any good by not aligning themselves with a ruling party. The current mass decamping of politicians from other parties to the APC is enough sign for the Igbos to see that, their quest to govern the country can be made a reality by identifying with the party (APC).
Since 1999, Igbos has been supporting and voting for PDP, yet, the party has never zoned their party presidential ticket to the region. This is to show that, now is the time for them to try another party. Who knows, the unexpected may just be around the corner.
What do you think about this?
