Power of the People

By: Dayo Oladeji – Saki, Oyo State.

I refer to your special report, How The People Won In Osun, TELL, August 25, 2014. Weeks before the battle, an average non-partisan resident of the South-west geo-political zone could bet with his or her life that the election had been won by the Peoples Democratic Party and that May 9, 2014 would only be set aside for the histrionics. A tabloid even presented the case hyperbolically, “the security apparatuses put in place were so massive that they outnumbered the population of the electorate.” The returnee-governor proved through the results of the election that power lies between the voters’ cards and the ballot box. The governor has broken the jinx of second term rulers.
