In his article, “Who will it be?” (POINT MARCH 29, 1993) Kudo Eresia-Eke appeared to be a soothsayer as he rightly predicted the outcome of the national conventions of the two political parties for 1993 elections in Nigeria. He predicated inter-alia that “Tofa may just be it for NRC” and “Abiola, Kingibe and Atiku in that order for SDP.”
Indeed, his analyses and the comprehensive cover story by Etim Anim and Fred Gusha made an interesting reading and clearly pointed to the readers who would make it among the numerous aspirants.
As you successful pointed to the readers who the flag bearers would be, kindly point to the attention of the party stalwarts to what is expected of them in their campaign tours. Point out to them why they should not do anything capable of returning us to the dark days of Election 83.
