A propaganda is a certain belief that people need to put in place just to affect the belief of others, it could be through persuasion or force.
In this case, nobody is using force
I was marvelled yesterday 17th of July,2017, on getting to the auditorium for the presidential debates, I was marvelled on how unilorites canvas themselves just to know who is fit to be the next student union president.
It started well, all aspirant were introduced, supporters made known their desires to protect and stand with their aspirants. These are few things I noticed during the debate.
1. Every aspirant has something they Needed to pass across.
I’m not a fan of unnecessary association, so you can believe me that if it was not educative enough I will never send my team over to do their journalist work.
Both Mr Redof and Mr Socrates were dressed in a formal attire which to me made them look more official than the Two other aspirant who were dressed in native attire. Most Of The student present in the hall were turned off by their appearance but of course they were ready to listen to whatever they had to say, just like every educated person would do.
2. All Aspirant had a lined out point to persuade the masses.
Everyone present in the debate yesterday could actually say, what all aspirant did yesterday was trying to persuade the students into believing they are the best candidate for the post of student union president and of course, some has their point readily lined out, while the others did not make good and adequate research on what they need to do or say.
But one thing I’m sure of was no average unilorin student learnt much thing which is new or different from whatever they had known before the debate. At the end I asked my self if the one hour thirty minutes spent on the debate was really worth it.
Trust me, I learnt little things from some point Redof laid down, I was convinced about Mr Arole and of course I wanted more from Mr Socrates but at least I knew the world could give a little chance to Mr onimasa.
But at the end Of The debate I was not sure if the time I spent there was really worth it.
3. Same old lies.
The old same lies was what every aspirants came to showcase to follow students Of the university of Ilorin the auditorium yesterday.
Let me Start with some aspirants trying to make the congregation feel like they were friends with their opponents, meanwhile as a Nigeria we all believe every political opponent is an enemy, I’m not a fan of hypocritical acts so I concur with mr Redof, who was actually very formal with every of his greetings before the debate started. This is one Of The thing that stirred a sweet form of attention from fellow students, especially my self.
4. Great scholars.
I was there listening when some aspirants wanted to use the whole school to learn phonetic intelligence.
These were the people who came with grammars and vocals which was difficult for a lay man to assimilate or digest. Not putting Into considerations that a man can only pass a message to the world when people can understand what he or she is saying.
Another believe which has a faulty ground.
5. They all believe they are better than their opponents.
This is another propaganda that is laid down to every Nigerian when ever there is a need to vote a person into a place of responsibilities, they all want us to believe that they are better than the other people competing with them, without considering that politics is not always about who knows better but who can perform better.
We have already have a lot of learned people whose ability to know what they should do is the problem that has affected the country this much.
I stand with everyone, I stand against no one.
But my major is to intimate people with the truth.
