THE POWER OF YOUR VOTE:A CATALYST FOR A STABLE AND UNITED NIGERIA
Everyone is familiar with the term voting. Many people have different meanings and perspectives of voting. Some might put it as the power of your voice,others that it is the ability to choose a good leader,and so many other ideas.

Countries of the world who are currently facing political instability include Syria,Ukraine,and a few others will definitely have a significant drop in its worth,both economically and politically.The cause of Syria's civil war is politically motivated. That is why we as citizens should take the voting process seriously. I pray for such a thing not to happen in Nigeria,but if such a thing happens in Nigeria,it will adversely affect Nigeria,the economy of Nigeria ,and the whole of West Africa.

For example,if individual A,is a member of a political party A,and the other individual in political party B,and we all notice that individual A keeps company with an ex-convict,who was convicted for corruption,while B has a good record. It is obvious that many people will vote in political party B. Although,we should never judge a book by its cover,we all should be careful with our choices.
Voting can also help fight against a dictatorial government and prevent anarchy,disarray,and disorderliness. Any one found voting for a hooligan should begin to dig their own grave. These people should also know there will mass corruption ,disorderliness and embezzlement of fund and property. Never can you find a political gathering...
