5 Strange Things Nigerians Have Experienced In The Political Scene Recently

We are not new to Drama in Nigeria's political scene. Some say Nigeria is like a movie series – that cannot be exhausted in a single watch, but a continuum with several unfolding of (weird and bizarre) actions. The past few weeks, months have witnessed several interesting but odd things in the nation's political scene. Some of which are:

Akara Spot in Edo: Stomach infrastructure started in 2014. The rice strategy of campaign efficiently used by Governor Ayodele Fayose to gain support of the people of Ekiti in the 2014 governorship election and later widely adopted in Nigeria seems to have faded away with a viable replacement. The replacement shot up in Edo state with the APC Akara Spot. The spot is a meeting point for party supporters to discuss election issues, watering the discussions down with balls of Akara.

Bread in Ondo:
As if the Akara spot in Edo was not enough, the All Progressives Congress candidate, in the forthcoming Ondo governorship elections, Rotimi Akeredolu's photo was inscribed on the bread labels, perhaps to woo voters.

Construction of Mosques in Jigawa: Jigawa state Governor, Abubakar Badaru is set to construct 90 mosques, with three mosques in each of the 30 constituencies of the state. How will construction of mosques better the lives of the people? What has the state got to do meddling in religious affairs?

Purchase of Coffins by Governor Masari: Reports that the governor of Katsina State, Aminu Bello Masari, spent the sum of N120 million to purchase 3,000 metal coffins at N40,000 each for Muslims in his state caused uproar two months ago. The coffins were reportedly shared to mosques in the same state where workers have not been paid by the governor. This was disclosed by a blogger, Jamil Maba who took to his social media page on Twitter to blast the state Governor. Is the Governor wishing his people dead?

Goat Empowerment in Katsina: Governor Masari recently was a subject of controversy. In August, he distributed 720 high breed of goats worth N104 million to 240 women under its Women Empowerment Scheme. Each of the 240 women selected across the 34 local governments was given two female goats and one male goat. The animals, which were purchased in Niger Republic, were highly reproductive and good for breeding. ''The goats are also insured for one year and veterinary officers will be going round in all the local governments to provide medication to the animals if the need arises'', Alhaji Abdulkadir Nasir, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Economic Empowerment said.
