For a country that prides and glorifies in democracy, what happened yesterday in this country was as disappointing as sad. It was disgraceful that a so-called civilised country could not hold a common by-election without violence as Chris-Vincent puts it.
One had been reported dead with some injured and hospitalised— although a winner has been announced, the haplessness surrounding the whole event was rather distasteful and goes a long way to show how flawed we are as a nation.
The bottom line remains the same, one must not put themselves in any position that could have them dead on the back of someone’s thirst for power. A line afrobeat singer Mr Eazi is resonating.
We cannot tell if his tweet goes for Ghanaians or Nigerians as they prep for the general polls. All we know is, he could not have said it any better.
“I beg you!!! Don’t kill yourself for another man’s political ambition.”
