My name is Martin Beck Nworah,a law student and a social writer. For whatever its worth,I don't use my timeline for any political purpose because the main talk is been done in hotels around 1am or there about. I see no justification for supporting any politician online and losing my cherished friends in the name of defending Jonathan,Buhari or any other presidential aspirant.
LET ME MAKE IT OBVIOUS!
Telling me that Buhari killed a woman by firing squad won't make me to vote for Jonathan. Telling me that Buhari is too old and does not have the mental capacity to lead a diverse nation like Nigeria won't make me vote for Jonathan. Telling me that Buhari has no School certificate and Jonathan has a doctorate won't also make me vote for Jonathan. Telling me that Buhari hates the Southerners and will deal us won't make me vote for Jonathan. You see my brothers and sisters,in the above written lines,nobody was appealing to my rationality;they were seeking votes based on emotions and sentiments. It won't work.

ON THE OTHER HAND
Telling Martin Beck Nworah to vote for Buhari because Jonathan is clueless certainly won't work. Telling me to vote for Buhari because Jonathan is a definition of corruption and mismanagement of public funds won't do the magic on me. Ahhh,telling me to vote for Buhari because Jonathan didn't build the 2nd Niger bridge and has enjoyed so many free shoes in Aso Rock won't make me vote for Buhari.
For whatever its worth, Nigerians need to rise above the politics of sentiments and emotions. None of these two men is better qualified to lead Nigeria than the other 13 presidential aspirants. Their rallies are all the same. If you must vote,let their individual precedence direct your line of action;not emotions or sentiments.
Use your HEAD not your heart!
This is democracy and politics;not village negotiation!
Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
