Elites, The Destroyers Of Our Democracy, Ordinary People Victims Of The Destruction

By Yusufu Shehu Usman

The reason most elites don’t vote at elections is because they know that very often their votes don’t count. They know this because they are the ones that discount the votes, both their own and the votes cast by others through planned and systematic rigging, falsification and manipulation of the processes and the final results
The elites are the ones who negatively use their intelligence to change figures and manipulate the computation of the results. They also use violence as a contingency plan where intelligence fails
They have the knowledge of the Electoral Act, the Guidelines and Procedures of the INEC which govern the conduct of elections and they devise appropriate strategies for the parties and candidates on how to circumvet the law.and shortchange the procedures
They know the gaps left by the law, the Guidelines and the Manual for elections and capitalise on them to sabotage the Electoral processes
The elites are the also the ones who plot the strategies for electoral violence and only use the misguided youth as cannon fodders or instruments in the execution of violence
They perfect the strategies for violence but keep themselves and their children away from it’s execution. They are most visible and most vocal at the collation centres where they do best what they know how to do.
It is in this operation theatre called the coalition centres that the elites plant the seed of major electoral disputes. It is here he results are either traded for or changed with fake or manipulated figures
It at this centre that simple arithmetic is turned into further maths, it is here that BODMAS and the law of mathematical possibilities and tangential projections are redefined, working from prefabricated results which are constant in their permutations, to arrive at the predetermined results, using the votes as variables
No wonder the collation centres may be referred to without any qualm of conscience as complicated houses of confusion, commotion and corruption.
They are the boiler houses where election results are cooked, fermented and produced.for consumption
Therefore when I reflect deeply on the factors and the persons on whom to allot the blame for the sabotage of our electoral process, the brains behind electoral violence and theft of democratic mandate of the people, i hardly think beyond the conspiracy hatched between the Political class and the elites ( by the way, the elites also dominate the political class)
The real culprits as far as the destruction of our Democracy is concerned are the elites. They are the money bags and the intelligentsia who also double as the controllers of power, influence and authority in a largely deprived and uninformed society.
I can’t blame the poor man who out of abject poverty and want foisted on him by the elites, is literarily forced to sell his votes to come by nor will I blame the misguided youth who are deprived of employment opportunities and the empowerment to grow and develop their potentials by the same elites, and who have been left with little or no option than to make themselves pawns in the hands of the elites, which the elites use to perpetrate electoral violence and manipulation of the outcome of the elections
I will put the blame for the failure of our democracy squarely where it rightly belongs: on the shoulder and footsteps of our elites, which sadly, i am one
This post is also a self recrimination and self indictment for me and my members of my class generally referred as elites.
I must be quick to add however, that there are elites and there are elites, some elites are more elitist that others The elites in the political class should take a greater chunk of this blame because they exert great control and influence over the smaller elites just as they take total control of the youth and the poor to highjack politics, elections and even democracy itself from the people.MY THOUGHT This Morning
