“Poverty Verification Cards”: I No Longer Trust Social Media Signals – Kperogi.

If what happened in the Ekiti State governorship election is any guide, the party that will win the 2023 presidential election would be the party that bribes voters the most.

Even people who sang passionate anti-APC songs on election day, according to news reports, buckled under at the sight of wads of naira and voted for APC!

I no longer trust social media and environmental signals as reliable predictors of parties’ performance at the polls in 2023.

Vote-buying abilities, not mass support or rigging, would determine who would win in 2023. Sad but true.

Omoyele Sowore is right to redefine PVCs as “Poverty Verification Cards.” With Nigeria being the Poverty Capital of the World, millions of people will verify their cards for the highest bribe givers.

Instant monetary gratification is more important to a poor person writhing in unspeakable existential torment than the illusory promise of deferred gratification.

And that’s precisely why people in power have a crucial self-interest in keeping the populace poor, powerless, and amenable to manipulation through bribery on election days.

WAFCON 2022: It’s Time To Dethrone Super Falcons – Banyana Coach, Ellis.

South Africa head coach, Desiree Ellis says the Banyana Banyana are firmly focused on winning their maiden title at the 2022 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Morocco. The biennial competition will kick off this weekend.

The Banyana Banyana have been runners-up five times in the competition. Three of those defeats were against nine-time champions, the Super Falcons of Nigeria. Ellis’ charges are pitted in Group C with the Super Falcons, debutants, Botswana and Burundi.

The South Africans will face the Super Falcons in their first game in Rabat next week Monday.

The tactician, whose side have won two of their last three meetings against Nigeria is targeting a good start.

“We have to make sure we get a positive result from the first match because that will set the tone for the rest of the tournament,” Ellis told Times Live.

“It will also be naïve of us to go to the tournament and not set a goal of winning it. I think we will be no different from any other country in wanting to win it.

“We’ve been runners-up five times and 2018 was really the closest. The time is now that we really step up and make sure we get that gold medal, but we must not underestimate any teams in our group.”
