Along the run, our bus sped off from Osisioma junction off to Rivers State Igwuocha. 

I counted carefully, and I swear that I was not under the influence of alcohol or sickness while I counted 23 Police/Army checkpoints before I stopped at Rumukurushi in Port Harcourt Igwuocha Biafra land. The worst of it all is that every transporting vehicle must submit the gate fee before granting them passage. This is one of the governmental presence in Biafra land.

I have been in my community for more than a month and I never saw the electrical supply for once. In the end, political rogues in this axis are scampering for votes, dishing out millions to individuals who will rig elections for them. 

The question is, why should they fight over political power after constant failure to exonerate the people's fears? Every political position is an avenue of looting in Nigeria. This is why every living soul must revolt against every election via boycott.

Election boycott, in this case, means a lot to Nigerians. Firstly, to Biafrans, it's a referendum. After the election, a  55% win declares it all. In this case, if the 55% Nigerians refused to vote during the election, then it is a successful election boycott cum referendum.

On the contrary, the election boycott to Nigerians means a revolution to amend the constitution against evil policies engulfing the government. However, election boycott is strictly for the Biafrans because a Nigerian is too timid and biased not to think of revolution.

With Keen interest have I studied the election boycott issue that has spread out in the whole of Biafra land and across, arguments and debates emanating as regards to the boycott has assured my fears that before ten years from today there will the complete re-circling of this powerful revolution that has to begin just like a drop of the rain.

The declaration of an election boycott by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra is the presence of the masses in Biafra land and across. 

Believe it or not, the only way to revolt against tyranny, dictatorship is to create a presence that will usher in a revolution exempting a coup d'etat. This reminds me of my great inspirational writer Victor Hugo go quoted "When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right".

Abraham Lincoln is another man that analyzed present Nigeria by this quote "This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it". 

The masses in the coastal region and across have come to the indisputable comprehension of the evil presence of the government in their land, so, therefore, election boycott is the only presence they could create in reaction.

Governmental presence is not all about the checkpoints we see today in our roads, what about the poor social amenities, poor educational system, embezzlement of public funds by those in power, the subjugation, intimidation of the people who rise to speak etc. Nigeria is under the jurisdiction of a tyranny. 

Why would you question the boycott issue whereas the same city that's meant to vote is treated in-humanly? The nature of man disputes him to embrace those who despise him and this has been from time immemorial.
Poverty is the parent of revolution and crime. An average Nigerian see poverty as an avenue to commit crimes. The same poverty is used against them by the government to enslave them. Why is it so? The economy of Nigeria is put into diffraction so that they can use a few naira notes to confuse you to vote for them.

The dilapidated states of roads in our major cities and rural areas are used for election campaigns, the same people embezzled the money meant for the building of good roads. Federal and state contribution for a better chance of living is gravely diminishing as much as elections are held; then tell me why a sane mind will keep voting for the same purpose.

Every revolution is thought in one mind. Mazi Nnamdi Kanu is that mind, while election boycott is the thought. If sitting at your home on 16th February can do you more good than 5,000 naira that wouldn't feed your family for two days, you have no option than to sit at home in a boycott of the election unless you are telling yourself lies. Lies to self is the most dangerous, it will consume you and destroy your future. Truth can never be hidden for a longer time, make haste while the sun shines. Total boycotting of Elections is the only remedy in the display.
