Dictionary time! Patrick Obahiagbon reacts to Saturday’s Governorship election…

Edo State Chief of Staff, Hon. Patrick Obahiagbon, in an interview with Punch, speaks on the general elections. Read his interesting explanation below….but don’t say we didn’t warn you….you need a dictionary!

What would you say was responsible for the low turnout of voters last Saturday?

“I’m sure the low voter turnout could be attributable to a vaudeville
of ratiocinations. The presidential election attracted more voters
ostensibly because that was the political elephant and was therefore
occasioned with attendant publicity ballyhoo. A vast majority of
Nigerians were also righteously indignant of the state of economic
quagmire, political phantasmagoria and social disequilibrium the
philistine and clueless government of President Jonathan has plummeted
the country.

They saw in the presidential election a sui
generis opportunity to get the yoke off their back and that they did
ferociously. This passion was not as frenzied in the last election”.
