As February 14th Elections draw nearer, The ruling People’s democratic party(PDP) and the main opposition party APC has continued to remind the citizens on why not to vote the candidate for the Presidential elections.
In addition to the stabilizing of Oil price if they win, the APC and General Muhammadu Buhari has given us another reason not to vote Incumbent president Goodluck Jonathan. In a statement by the party chairman, John Oyegun who highlighted that Nigeria is a sport loving country, especially football, where they were once referred to as the Giants of African Football.
In a reaction to the just awarded African player of the year accolade, which once again a Nigerian footballer (Vincent Enyeama) lost to Yaya Toure of Cote d’voire the chairman in a press conference with FNN correspondents and other media outlets stated that “No Nigerian player ever won the African player of the year award under President Goodluck Jonathan despite the award been given out four consecutive times” he went further to remind the nation that No Nigerian player ever won the award from 1999 to date, with PDP as the ruling party. “When Kanu Nwankwo, Victor Ikpeba, Emmanuel Amunike and Rashidi Yekini all won, it was a notherner with Military background that was at the helm” he added.
“A vote for Buhari on February 14th, is a vote for the love of football, it is a vote for next African Player of the year award!!” The APC chieftain exclaimed.
We at FNN cannot categorically state how Gen. Buhari winning the forth coming elections will lead to a Nigerian player winning the African Player of the year 2015 award, especially as Nigeria is not even partaking in the on going African Cup of Nations mudial, which is usually one of the factors in predicting the front runners, but we will just assume that APC’s Gen. Buhari have some kind of magical wand to give Nigeria everything they desire as soon as he becomes President of Nigeria.
