Money is most valu­able now

Daily Trust - - VIEWS -

The ques­tion Mah­mud Jega asked about why people like em­pha­siz­ing if a can­di­date have enough money or not to as­pire for po­si­tions is real. In fact, even the stu­dents’ elec­tion in schools it is money that of­ten de­cides the win­ners. The so­ci­ety now see elec­tive po­si­tions as a process of self-en­rich­ment not about ser­vice per se hence money value not other qual­i­ties. Most politi­cians are job­less so they pre­fer to sup­port the can­di­dates who have money to give. The masses on the other hand, ex­pect much largesse to be dis­pensed dur­ing elec­tion­eer­ing cam­paign on as­sump­tion that is their time to hold as­pir­ing lead­ers to ran­som and solve per­sonal prob­lems. It is sad that in our case money tends to pro­vide power to buy votes, INEC of­fi­cials and ma­nip­u­late elec­tions.
