Toke Makinwa Speaks On Nigeria’s Election

Nigerian media personality, Toke Makinwa has shared her thoughts on the recently held 2019 general elections in Nigeria.

The best-selling author who was one of the many prominent Nigerians to exercise their franchise by going out to vote during the elections that held on Saturday, February 23rd spoke about the election violence that is being reported in some states.


According to her, she hopes Nigerians can appreciate the former president, Goodluck Jonathan.  She went on further to say that she is getting tired of praying to God about Nigeria and all her problems while adding that Lagos is no man’s land as every tribe contributes to the development of the city.

Read her tweets;

“Ballot box snatching, burning down election materials cos you are dissatisfied it’s not going in your Favor is weak! If you lose, lose with some dignity, I hope we all appreciate Goodluck now. Sighhhhh

My people perish for lack of knowledge”, in the case of Nigeria it is not lack of knowledge but “Poverty”…. Poverty of the mind is the worst kind. God help us all

I even get tired of calling God in to our matter as Nigerians, he has given us so much, blessed us so much. Our problem is man-made, selfishness, greed, lack of love

The bloodshed is disgusting, if this can happen in 2019, how ready are we really for the change we crave so bad? It is not by force, if we don’t want you, leave us with the consequence, of who we elect does not do us right we meet again in 4 years and we do the same.”

It would be recalled that Makinwa recently reacted to the poor welfare conditions of the corp members that took part as ad-hoc staff for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
