The election is only a few hours away commencing with the Senate and House of Assembly elections. If you are like me, who owns a blackberry, or connected to Facebook 24/7, watch cable tv in the office, during lunch and in bed then you must have been inundated with a flurry of opinions, discussions, blogs, arguments, broadcast messages, viral videos, text messages and off course the proliferated debates.
A lot of us are probably more confused now than we were 2 weeks back about who to vote for President. If it were left to me and those who are like me then, there is every possibility that the PDP will be in for a tight race and could even see their 11 year grip to the evaporate. But then it’s not about “us”, it’s about the ordinary man on the street. The okada rider, the danfo driver, the Bolly seller and the street hawker. Those who don’t watch debates or have the “indecency” to depend on a blackberry to be socially informed. And so I switch my message to them in a language they can understand.
