It’s election season and I have found this period particularly fascinating compared to previous times we have inched towards choosing our next set of leaders in a democratic process. There are a number of factors that make this point in time different. For the first time in a while, we will have frontline presidential candidates from Nigeria’s three major ethnic groups. Personalities who possess the stature and clout to win in their own right. Aside from this, the surge of interest from Nigerian youths who were hitherto apathetic or indifferent to politics evokes excitement and renewed hope.
