While We Wait, Ex-BBN Mate, Leo Pops Up With A Vital Question, What Are Your
Personally, AYNAIJANG CEO feel ILLITERACY is a BIG problem for our GOVERNANCE and it's reflecting! People that are educated and well informed can obviously see and feel the need for a change in the government and they pursue it fervently.
Away from FCT, a look at PUs in Lekki and the likes says the same, unlike rural areas where vote buying can easily be practised at ease even if they can see and feel the hardship as well.
The question is, should illiterates be stopped from voting? Do they need to be enlightened more? Can vote buying be stopped? All of these are questions that should be attended to.
However, part (if not most) of the blame should be directed to we the YOUTHS, the illiteracy disadvantage is supposed to be covered up by the 'Youths'(who are presumed to be mostly educated and informed).
But sadly, most of us didn't even come out and vote or are generally filled with the 'my vote won't count mentality', hereby leaving the PUs filled with mostly Illiterates and Elderly people whose decision can be easily influenced. Youth needs to do better! .
Let's hear your thoughts though.
