The Nigerian crude, media and agenda 2019
Politicking gets a kick start with the All Progressives Congress, APC organising a national convention this weekend to elect its national officers to midwife its campaigns. Other political parties would follow soonest. Scores of political parties and many politicos are jumping into the murky waters of 2019 electioneering that would be greatly influenced by critical national issues. The beauty of democracy is that it is determined by the majority. In essence, democracy is majority rule. In the Speech delivered by former United States Presisident, Jimmy Carter to the Indian Parliament on the 2nd of June 1978 he said that: “Democracy is like the experience of life itself—always changing, infinite in its variety, sometimes turbulent and all the more valuable for having been tested for adversity.” President Carter cannot be further from the truth as emergent aspirants and candidates mount the soapboxes in what would be expensive national campaigns.
