A twitter user identified as @victornet4u, has on Twitter, charged presidential aspirant, Kingsley Moghalu, on grassroot politics to include Nigerian youths in his political system.
@victornet4u, noted Moghalu is only known on social media which may not increase his chance of winning a political seat.
He wrote: “Sir, as you press for electoral reforms, I’d encourage you to embrace grassroots politics. Can you believe that out of the many youths I told about your personality, outside Twitter, none knows about you. A good number of Nigerians on Twitter might end up not casting theirs.
“votes. Twitter followership might not entail popularity amongst the electorate and might not increase your chances of winning. You’re one of the best candidates for that position. Please don’t lack the skills, expertise and pool of experiences. Kind regards.”
In reciprocation, Moghalu via his twitter handle, @MoghaluKingsley, responded: “Thank you for your advice. We are working on plans to do so and in fact have already started. We will get there, don’t worry.”
Meanwhile, via the same medium, the presidential aspirant, lending his voice to the electoral law amendment said: His Excellency, President @MBuhari , let me say to you Sir, as a citizen of Nigeria and with all due respect, that IF you fail to sign the amended electoral law with a provision for electronic voting and the electronic transmission of results, you will be an ENEMY OF DEMOCRACY.
“You failed to sign an amended electoral law in 2018, doubtless because you were a candidate and wanted “scope” to ensure your victory in 2019. In 2023, you will not be a candidate. I urge you to leave, at least, a legacy of facilitating a transparent democracy. That requires, at a minimum, transparent collation and transmission of results and, ideally, direct primaries in political parties. Thank you Mr. President.”
