a. scene who reports for courts africa and i mean the stuff managing editor of america's house a service to having generous welcome everybody. i want to recreate a moment that i had just a couple of weeks ago so i looked up the independent national electoral commission the final list of presidential candidates and i said as i started to scroll down whoa look at how many people in contention and i scold and scold and scold and scold and i won't keep scrolling we have a show to do there's a lot of girlie in there you and i apparently are not the only one surprised i want to share this tweet we got from al harry who says i'm really surprised to hear seventy people are contesting nigeria's presidency i've heard and seen six candidates their campaign posters around but only two seem to actually be campaigning i know only five political parties with their logos i have no idea what the others are or what their logos look like so merci give us some context here
7:45 am
seventy plus people is that unusual for nigeria's elections i don't think it's unusual frankly but this is a horse race elections we have to be very realistic about. between the. intent of the numbers and popularity and. reach across several local governments in nigeria that's what it is about i mean it's good for people to be who. you want to govern this country to decide about this country as it is this is an election between the a.p.c. and the. it's not election night or an election where you between five major. elections in nigeria what two thousand and nine times are. thinking this is country one hundred and eighty million. citizens many of whom are
7:46 am
loud to vote how can it be a two horse race when the only candidates actually so no we have a chance. you know this is this is typical of most democracies actually in most places where elections like this take place it's usually a two way race in the united states as we know. nigerians natura political and they love politics and this is politics so everybody wants to be part of who they really want piece of cake and so it shouldn't be surprising that after seventy second to be elected by the end of the the they're all going to merge into this two political parties and they were. p.d.p. so from someone online i am now most voters don't even recognize all of these candidates some of them will be better off in the house and the senate also they don't have grassroots structures to enable them to win an election most of them won't even own their own polling unit so one skeptical take there but i want to share this otherwise you know me i'll give this one to you the same person says
7:47 am
truth be told we only have two or three presidential candidates others are just there to improve their c.v. your resume and make up the numbers p m b which for our non nigerian audience is the abbreviation you'll see online for president president hadi i am not says he has seventy five percent chance of being elected so there's some surety there you know me what's your take here why is it that people feel so sure that there's really only two candidates. because that's that's a reflection of the reality it's in there every election cycle we seem to be caught up between choosing between the idealism of once in a different sort of political leaders and the reality of accepting that you know only two candidates from the dominant part to stand a chance of winning so it's a real reflection of the reality there's some school of thought that's just that a lot of these people who are aiming for the presidency probably better off any for you know legislative positions in the in the national assembly the senate or the
7:48 am
house of reps or maybe even a need for governorship positions for the down the line as opposed to shooting straight for the presidency different people think different things as regards this but it's made a reflection of the at the rallies even being honest there are two dominant parties . we can chase idealism a once in a different sort of political it is about five years running for president has to accept that that reality will not come to pass to twenty nineteen maybe in the next election cycle it requires a lot of work over three full five election cycles before they are strong enough a.p.c. to have any realistic chance of winning you know the interesting part of this in a condition as the similarity between the two major candidates. both are northern us where the ministry what that won't. know niger.
