Old persons shouldn’t dominate Nigerian politics — Former envoy

Dr. Godknows Igali, a former permanent secretary and ambassador to Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, highlighted as problematic a pattern of Nigerian politics where older individuals were still playing the primary roles whereas in many nations youthful aspirants have been dominating the political field.

In addition, he urged Nigerians to support candidates in the 2023 elections who have strong ideas and a proven track record.Infomation Guide Nigeria

He said, “I have raised some fundamental issues about the morphology of politcal party primaries because some patterns were a little bit troubling. While many countries have young aspirants, there is still a lot of gerontocracy in ours.

“Older people are still playing the major roles. I have also expressed fears that there were very few female candidates that emerged unlike other countries where females are becoming very cardinal. I aIso have some issues on the issue of money. In the primaries, you saw that money played a major role and I thought that we should be looking at candidates that have competence.Jamb Result 

“I also raised an issue about the place of manifesto, the place of ideas or thoughts. Nigerian citizens should pick candidates that have positive ideas. Going forward, let us look for candidates that have ideas and their track records. This idea of people being swayed by money, you will have eight years to regret. You have eight years of your mouth being shut.”

“So, I think the churches and Islamic leaders in mosques have to work together with INEC and enlighten our people and tell them, ‘don’t give up, continue to make effort’. I think that is the message, people should not just say, ‘let me collect money it doesn’t matter.’ No, it matters now that we have the BVAS, let’s hope and pray that the BVAS would work properly and if they work properly it means every vote will count,” he emphasized.
