ELECTIONS; WHEN ARE WE GETTING IT RIGHT?
ELECTION; WHEN ARE WE GETTING IT RIGHT?
Election is the mainstream of democracy
In the political system of a democratic state.
Today, Nigeria elections remains
Of fraudulent practice and turbulent
As corruption marred the elections
Coupled with falsification of results
And yet, years rolled on
Previous mistakes kept repeating
Often, credible election becomes crippled
Past problems besets the present one
Defiling the democratization process.
Engaging in politics of their bellies
When are we getting it right?
From this seeming unending crises
Making politics warlike
And election becomes insurrections
Alas, then we get it right
When election gives credence to citizens rights
And accountability and probity are sustained
Equity and credible election can be strengthen
With the electoral bodies upholding fairness.
