Editorial: Before We Blame The Septuagenarians (Atiku, Buhari Etc).
There are twenty four Presidential Candidates for the 2019 Presidential
Election in Nigeria. The list can be found on this link (http://www.cvakutamedia.com/2018/10/2019-presidential-candidates.html). Except the small parties adopt one person as their candidate, this election will mainly be between Atiku and Buhari. The small parties do not stand any chance without merging.
The question now is, can they adopt one person as their candidate? If so, who will the person be, why and how? And if they cannot adopt a candidate, then why?
Remember APC was a result of a merger of small parties. Therefore if these young candidates and their parties cannot merge, then the over 60s and septuagenarians that midwifed APC are smarter. However young age is not a guarantee for good governance.
