Training Manual/Video

Posted by

May I suggest that we produce a short manual to be used by volunteers in canvassing for votes at the grassroots. The manual should be converted to short videos of 10 minutes subtitled in all the major languages in Nigeria to be shown to voters in the villages.

The manual/ video should feature what a government should do for her people with exams from working countries. The examples should contain, free healthcare and education for children below 18 years as it’s done in UK and other countries. How roads and other infrastructure are maintained by government. It should also highlight that these things have not been possible because of the type of rulers and looters we have been electing into power.

With these manual and video, we would recruit volunteers in every LGA, ward and polling units who will go house to house to educate the illiterate voters. The manual and video should also be promoted on the social media and should become discussion topics in clubs, bars churches, schools, and all public places.

Thank you Kennedy.

Yeah, that’s in line with my thoughts on preparing or training the volunteers ahead of the time for campaigning. I think this is good to be done much earlier before campaigns starts. Good idea Mo. ??

Thanks Mo and Ceejayke
Below are some questions I want us to ask. The video version should include a flash of the ideal situation. Let us refine this or present it in a better and more eye catching and convincing ways. I wish we could be done with this before the end of this month.


1. Do you have enough money to seek the basic healthcare?
2. Do you spend money on education and healthcare for your children less than 16 years?
3. Can you estimate how much you spent on these last year?
4. Do you spend money to generate your own electricity?
5. Do you live in substandard houses not fit for pigs?
6. Do you struggle to survive on your own without help from the government?
7. Do you know that the primary responsibility of a government is your security and welfare?
8. Do you know that these things are the responsibilities of a functional and people centred government?
9. Do you know why you are not getting these things from the government?
10. Do you know it’s because you sell your votes to them?
11. Do you know the government intentionally deny you these things and keep you in perpetual bondage to ensure you always sell your votes?
12. Do you know that when they pay you to campaign and vote for them they are investing and MUST recover their investment with profit thereby not providing you with what is due to you?
13. Do you know that it is better to support a candidate by donating your little money, time, energy etc during campaign? In doing so, you are investing and when the person assumes office you can demand for your dividends because you put him there with your money and time.

1. Are you willing to say NO to any candidate that gives you money to vote or campaign for them?
2. Are you willing to be investors in your future rather than being victims?

1. Invest your time, money and energy in campaigning and voting for Prof Kingsley Moghalu and see these things provided without your asking.
2. Say no to money politics, it kills your future and that of your children.

Nice school of thought @ Kennedy

Nice initiative! We need more of this kind of thinking!

Let me however chip in that this requires great determination because the present system makes things pretty tough such that everyone is looking for how to make money from everything, everyone and everywhere!

But we need to raise a new way of doing things that will first involve sacrifice, patience, delayed gratification and afterwards rewards.
