Then They Fell Again

“Livinus, I’m telling you that this time around, things go dey different. This new candidate don talk sey¬†him go dey show face well. Sey all the things wey our community need, him go make sure sey him do something about them when him enter.”

Livinus wasn’t convinced. Over the years, they had heard different variations of the same lie, and at the end of the day, nothing changed. The politicians they had voted in the past had let them down. Once they secured the mandate of the people, they instantly became inaccessible, and now their constituency was a mess. Nothing worked. The roads were in a deplorable state, power supply was worse than ever, children of school age were out of school hawking wares, and the youths were idle.
