The initiators of democracy in 5th Greece never envisaged a situation in which only the wealthy or super-rich would become representatives

of the people, whether in the legislative or executive arm of government. Its original meaning – rule of the people – is quite instructive in this regard.

Ali Mazrui warned that ‘it is suicidal in any democracy for a majority without economic power to hand over political power to a minority with economic power! Which is the current scenario in Nigeria. And the nation is paying for it. In a most blatant and imprudent manner, the future rulers of the country brazenly passed a vote of no confidence on sociopolitical ethics and the value of the naira in relation to the American dollar. Apart from the scandalously high price tag on the Nomination or Expression of Interest Forms, there was a battle by aspirants to pay the highest bribes to the delegates who are charged with producing the flagbearers of the Parties.
