The 2023 general election in Nigeria has come and gone, with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announcing Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, as the winner of the presidential election.
The election was keenly contested, with several political parties and candidates vying for various positions across the country. However, as with any election, there are bound to be winners and losers, and in this case, the APC emerged victorious.
The question on many people’s minds now is what will happen to the agitators who have been vocal in their criticisms of the country and its leaders in the run-up to the election. Will they continue to castigate the country, or will they work towards its prosperity? It is impossible to predict with certainty what the agitators will do, but there are a few possible scenarios.
Firstly, it is possible that some of the agitators will continue to criticize the country and its leaders, regardless of who is in power. These individuals may feel that the election was not free and fair, or that the new government does not represent their interests. They may continue to agitate and push for referendum, even if it means going against the government.
On the other hand, some of the agitators may decide to give the new government a chance and work towards the prosperity of the country. These individuals may feel that, while the election was not perfect, it was still a step in the right direction, and they may want to give the new government the benefit of the doubt. They may choose to work with the government to address the country’s challenges and find solutions to the problems facing the nation.
It is also possible that some of the agitators who metamorphosed into opposition parties during the election campaign will revert to their old ways of castigating the country. They may use their position as opposition members to push for change and reforms, even if it means criticizing the government.
Finally, there is the possibility that some of the agitators will take a more pragmatic approach and try to find common ground with the new government.
These individuals may feel that the country’s problems are too complex to be solved by one group or party alone, and that working together is the only way to move the country forward. They may choose to put their differences aside and work with the government to achieve their shared goals.
