Edo APC Delegates-craft
A Female Candidate Likely?
Have you thought of this possibility – that the on-going delegates-craft can go the other way – women-folks changing the equation? Am afraid; Lady Tina Agbara may eventually be the beneficiary of this male-dominated jagged game.
Assuming women constitute 30% of the total number of delegates from the 192 wards in the state, and all – in protest against the never-accommodating males – vote for the only female aspirant; Mrs. Tina Agbara while the remaining 70% is fragmented amongst the 10 male contestants – what would be the result?
Can you solve this non-quadratic but simultaneous equation, if the opportunity is not yet lost?
If you arrive at the answer, please, keep the formula – it would be needed next time – I am told, just now – from the field report that women botched their only opportunity to bite.
Don’t you think the female-folks are not ripe for such hi-tech political maneuvering of this male-dominated turf?
Maybe next time, when they take their self-inflated gender “equality or inequality” campaign beyond their present day grandstanding.
And the Breaking News!
What’s breaking in the News? It’s belated!
That he won? That’s no news please – it’s the handiwork of delegates who have been chanting continuity and would not let a flameout.
We saw it coming – just that we didn’t contemplate the magnitude – that the One, a firebrand economist-turned-politician would run you down soonest; I did forewarned in the article, “These Vain Contestants”.
It was wrapped-up thus: Don’t fear, when you meet the Steel Scoopers!
