I Am Not Anti #PDP or Anti #APC Just Anti BullShit

About 2 weeks ago, I received two messages almost simultaneously … one on Facebook messenger and the other on Blackberry Messenger and both from the same person. The request?
For me to create anti-Buhari and anti-APC cartoon sketches. Probably the requester saw this sketch here and assumed that I was anti-APC but probably did not see this other sketch here, which would have countered his original motion. So I politely declined.
But then another message flew in “I go pay” and that’s when I decided to write this article to clarify a few things about my political stance …
I am sorry but I am not anti-APC or anti-PDP I am simply anti-Bullshit. If you want to pay me to draw anti-bullshit cartoons or write anti-bullshit articles, you can. Because I am a firm believer that both parties APC and PDP are the same “same shit different toilet” they have no ideologies just self-interests. So I am not looking to push a lopsided biased argument to favor one party when I am fully aware of the self-interest ideology that drives each party.
I am only interested in exposing the truth, uncovering the lies, and fighting to make sure that issues bigger than rice and beans come to the fore-front of our electoral discussions. I am interested in open debates where candidates can be drilled on their Economic strategies, Educational ideas and Political Ideologies versus the same old canned speeches and staged photographs that we normally see.
In my party, the anti bullshit party (ABP) we don’t care what your religion is, we don’t care how sexy your family is, or how many followers are on your social media page, or who has endorsed you. We only care about you … the candidate. So I urge all reading this to join the Anti bullshit party (not a real party, but it should be) by ensuring you get candidates and supporters to stick to the issues. 2015 is a very crucial year from Senate races, to Government races to the big Presidential race, Nigeria just has to get it right!
And we all can help do that … we have one vote (well technically … some people have more votes but that’s another issue for another day), but we can influence many more votes by getting others to stick to the issues and facts that matter!
Don’t sell your votes or your art or you social media platform to parties but sell it to the truth. I am out…
