So, this poisoned carrot of an Ibadan State is bound to

There have always been some asinine, farcical and insincere features to the politicking and electioneering in Nigeria. Nothing has ever been normal or straightforward with politicians; they are not only involved in one corruption scandal or the other, they are equally involved in bloodletting and mudslinging. This particular trait of “insincere, do-or-die politics” is unique to Nigeria. Please, I stand to be corrected and educated.

But what I say should be weighed and balanced with truth, common sense and sincerity of purpose, because I have no other reason than to say things the way I see them.
