Nigeria's 2015 general election and the masses
Nigeria as a post-constitutional nation whose socio-political activities have been an epitome of political mysteries for its masses over five decades ago needs to be revolutionized through a credible and justifiable election.
Therefore, This is the most precious moment of our time in Nigeria in which all Nigerians must stand firmly and also get prepared for the forth-coming election in order to discharge their fundamental responsibilities by voting for the candidate of their choice irrespective of the candidate's religion, political party and ethnic differences.
Since independence, history has significantly indicated the voluminous number of times that the glorious expectations of the masses have been sabotaged and jeopardised recklessly."It is not a mistake to make a mistake, but it is a great mistake to repeat a mistake." So, it will be very ridiculous for Nigerians to fold their hands to allow calamitous histories and mistakes to repeat itself in
2015 General Election by 14th of February. The past political leaders in all tiers of government that is, local,state and federal government have directly and indirectly mismanaged their offices, they cluttered their offices with corruption and bad governance that led to other social vices within the political system of government.

Basically,This forth-coming general election serves as a productive and revolution all weapon that must be judiciously and jealously utilised by all the masses to create the great change that will be profitable for all Nigerians especially the unborn generations. As bonafied citizens of the country, all Nigerians must make sure they all have a valid and acceptable voter's card that was designed and re-distributed by Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) because without the original permanent voter's card nobody would be qualified to discharged his or her civil responsibility as a bonafied citizen of the country.
Substantially," A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user". All the masses should make good use of the permanent voter's card during election. We should try to resist from bargaining away our conscience in the market place under the weight of poverty to assuage hunger. This simply means, we have to vote for the better or best candidate that is well equipped with qualitative attributes of a good leader, not to vote for people that could easily tricked or an electoral candidate that is always ready to price our conscience and sabotage our future once he or she gets to power.
Additionally, Nigerian Youths should also resist and exclude themselves from political menace! they should neglect every politician that could easily initiate them to pollute the peace and harmony of the society.
The Nigerian Youths must positively learn the political attributes and procedures in governing or leading a country in order to become a better leader in the future.
Conclusively, all the citizens of Nigeria should support the growth and development of the country by discharging their responsibilities at all times for the betterment of the country.
