Thesis: Party Switching Is A Threat To Nigerian Democracy?
I am still doing my research on this thesis … but for now I believe that the alarming ease with which people are switching parties from PDP to APC and vice-versa in my opinion … is bad for the Nigerian democracy.
If this continues and at this frequency, then we might never form a true two-party system. And by true, I mean parties that have key ideologies and view points that they stand for. Ideologies that govern a persons decision to join or reject a party.
Instead what we have right now are politicians switching and joining parties not when ideologies or philosophies match but rather when it benefits their political progress and that’s why I think it is a threat to Nigerian democracy. Because it relegates our political process to a Big Brother Africa type show … formation of alliances to avoid getting voted out or in this case voted in.
But again I am still doing my research on this …. Maybe it will auto-correct itself as we grow as a democracy but for now as I always say … same shit different toilet.
