Edo/Ondo 2020: RAIN Advocates For Violent Free Elections, Urges Electorate To Shun Vote Merchants



A socio-political organization, Re-Awaken Initiative of Nigeria, RAIN has appealed to electorate in Edo and Ondo State to shun selling of their votes to desperate politicians in the upcoming gubernatorial elections.

RAIN made this appeal on Friday in a press release signed by its National Coordinator, Prince Adewale Samson and made available to newsmen in Lagos.

The release partly reads : “Don’t sell your birth right for a piece of Ankara nor cash! Also don’t forget votes buying is a serious crime in the land, the giver and receiver are both going to jail.

“In politics you must understand that those involved in vote buying are the wicked politicians that don’t have your interest.

“Every one of them is chasing their own interests. Dealing with them is like sleeping with tigers; you must always have your eyes wide open or you have to read the book; Tiger by tail.

“In any Political equation, there’s always someone being used, like those that sold their votes for a pair of Ankara, are mostly the victims also those that collected peanuts in exchange of their votes, don’t forget you will have to wait for the next 4years again before you can get another pair of Ankara or they monetise 2k they will call it transportation fare, Serving this kind of Politicians is like a bandage on a wound.

“Once the wound is healed your usefulness ends. Wicked Politicians don’t recognize and reward value they recognize their own needs and you are only as useful as the lifespan of their needs for you.

“In politics never you carry guns nor agreed to be a thug for them, don’t wail more than the bereaved.

“They will get the rewards while you inherit their enemies. In Politics, in any event that other interests conflict with your own interests and you have to choose, always choose yours.

“Never cross oceans for wicked Politicians you will drown and the best they will do is give a benevolent speech at your burial, they will lie to your widow and children and eat your food. Wicked Politicians will never cross the streets for their foot soldiers.

“Even the devil will not die for them, so you too shouldn’t. If you claimed that your godfather in politics loves you so much, please go and ask for the hands of his daughters for marriage and get his response.

“We also have good young and vibrant politicians who are scattered all over the place but will never want to join the old political parties, because they know and we have seen it time without numbers that the old parties are good in changing the bottles to new ones but the same old wine are inside.”

Samson, however, urged Nigerians to embrace news political parties in order to reform the country’s democracy with politicians who are passionate with good governance, radical transparency to strengthen character of integrity and inspire overall openness.
