The Elections Are Coming, And We Have The Perfect Kit For You

November 8, 2018

In less than 100 days, you’ll be making a choice over which people will steer this green-white ship for another four years. I’m talking about the 2019 General elections starting February 16, 2019.

Nigerians around the country will go out to vote new  ̶r̶u̶l̶e̶r̶s̶ leaders into office. From the House of Reps all the way up to the Presidency. You know the drill.

 

You’re probably one of these people:

“Oga, I don’t even know who to vote for, because everything just seems confusing”

“I know who I’m voting for, and I’m super ready!”

“I don’t have a PVC, and that might or might not suck”

“What are you talking about?”

Whichever one you are, we have something to tell you. See these politicians? Most of them want to use our future to play Ludo and Monkey-post. We will not take it!

This is what’s up

Who’s running? What are they doing? What does it all mean in the big scheme of things?

 

We’ll keep you posted on only the most important stuff from the past week. Once a week. Mondays. 5pm.

No clickbait. No B.S. No heinous threads or epistles.

Just 5 straight-to-the-point absolute need-to-knows. In 3 minutes. All of this, while making sure you don’t get bored to death.

Life is too short for fake news.

atheist god forbid

If you call this dispatch “politics for people who hate and/or don’t understand politics,” you’ll be goddamned right.
