### "See me before you go", says the officer.
I say nothing, wait for him to leave then roll my eyes looking up to heaven in a plea: "Not again, Lord". My face is visibly covered in sun screen (actually Nixoderm) for heaven's sake!
As I stood on the queue, the near impossibility of my presidential candidate winning dawned on me .
Right there as we waited, campaign for the ruling party went on. "Who should I vote for?" asks this guy. "APC" replies the other.
I'm shocked! Broz, you left your house, checked for your name on the list, joined the queue AND you're just asking who to vote for?😢😢😢 "APC ni o. Don't let anyone confuse you", says Boda T, the carpenter to Anti Fatie, the orange seller.
Even as I went through the verification process, Boda *Foga (vulcanizer) whispers to me, "APC ni o dibo fun o". So, all my village people are voting for APC AGAIN.
They're voting for a party and not a person. These old women -- who the officials put ahead of us on the queue, in spite of murmurs and loud protests --- these women don't know the candidates of the party. "Umberela ni Omo mi nii dibo fun o" [My child asked me to vote for the Umbrella]
Anyways, I have done my part.
May God's will be done.🙏🙏 What's going on in your Polling Station?
