When we talk about Nigerian politician we talk those men in the helm of affair of the
government of Nigeria as a whole and the way they emerge as the leading their respective states and how they come to power in Nigeria we have political platform not political part and i thought that scholars of political science define political party as organisation of people with the same political ambition and Their sole aim is to win election. if this people have the same political ambition when was APC man that just defected to PDP has blended with their manifesto talk less of becoming the flag bearer the party and that is to say we are running political platform not political party. if you go to western world where we borrowed democracy their system is quiet different from our own i know since ages America has been running two party system and that is what they are doing till today but in our own setting, it has dambled in so many diverse and no one among our politician has a political party they political prostitution, contest in PDP today next tenure he is the other political party contesting and the foundational members of those party has stayed for long without any post. lets use this resent as example the governor was disqualified by his party during his party screening within a space of a week he defected and the opposition give him ticket that is to say in that opposition there is no competent member that will handle the post in that party though it may be arranged but what of the political language he used for the opposition when he is in the ruling party. well it quiet sure in politics there is no permanent friend or enemy but what of supporters do they know that?most of the supporters suppose to take it easy when they are supporting their own candidate that it suppose to be sportsmanship not do or die affair. our politicians don’t built strong opposition every one want to be in ruling party. if every body is in ruling party who will do the work of check and balance in the government, who is going to be watch dog of the government to know when things is going wrong among the ruling class. my humble suggestion is that our politicians should have our state in mind and the citizen not themselves or their pocket.
They have to build strong opposition where check and balance will work for the state so that the state will favour all of as citizen.
