The people’s revolution Part 3 of 5.
(continued from yesterday’s )
Socrates, it was, who made the profound statement that ‘..THE SECRET OF CHANGE IS TO FOCUS ALL YOUR ENERGY, NOT ON FIGHTING THE OLD, BUT IN BUILDING THE NEW.’ We all can safely cohabit our society, with the majority having their way and the minority their say.
What we unfortunately have today is that the minority have their way and their say, whilst the majority only enjoy audible silence – no thanks to voter apathy. The last election in Benue State was determined by the participation of a population of about 800 thousand only.
The difference between the eventual winner and the loser was not up to 100 thousand. Invariably, only this 100 thousand (2.5%) determined who became the governor IN A STATE WHERE THE POPULATION WAS ESTIMATED TO BE OVER 4 MILLION.
What this means is that if we can raise a population of 1 million voters/believers/partners today, we can achieve this electoral revolution. The number looks big but if we respectively concentrate on our immediate constituencies, we can build the critical mass to take us there.
