Was Tinubu Spitting Facts In His Latest Video?

September 16, 2020

Citizen is a column that explains how the government’s policies fucks citizens and how we can unfuck ourselves.


Okay, so if you’ve not seen Tinubu’s message to the Edo voters, find it here:

Still didn’t watch it? Here’s a quick summary:

  • Tinubu says Edo people should reject Godwin Obaseki in Edo’s Governorship election
  • Tinubu says he has suffered with many others to bring about democracy in Nigeria
  • Tinubu says Obaseki can’t understand the values and pains of democracy since he didn’t participate in any democratic struggle
  • Tinubu speaks on the political happenings with the Edo State Legislature, says Obaseki is a dictator.

Now, we have a few questions:

  • Why is Tinubu so interested in the Edo election?
  • Is it only people who were in this democratic struggle that can understand the importance of democracy?
  • So, who are the defenders of democracy in Nigeria?
  • What plans does the candidate from Tinubu’s party have for Edo people, and how will he achieve them?
