This is the summation of APC’s 2019 campaign and everything else is less important.

They won’t discuss Issues, Infrastructure, Good Governance, a united Nation or the Economy; just Corruption and many will be swept away.

For PDP, presenting a canonised Saint won’t even help.
The key reaction for voters therefore is to ensure that 2019 is a wide-ranging conversation on all aspects of nation-building including but not limited to corruption.

The key reaction for PDP is to focus on its own areas of strength and turn out its own base as best as possible.
Pursuing new voting blocs, organise in the media, trend hashtags and all that is good but turning out the base is the most important task of the party and its candidate.

Any candidate who worked against PDP in 2015 will likely lose the core voting base of PDP to apathy.
If that candidate can bring in a new voting bloc equal to the base that will be lost, then it’s a good trade-off but what guarantees?

Especially when what will be under attack will be the party platform, not the candidate.

To my mind, it’s really simple and straightforward.
PDP lost 2015 not specifically to any coloured media or social media or propaganda or whatever: the base simply didn’t turn up because party leaders were intimidated by the opposition (in the North) or disillusioned (in the South).

Those votes didn’t go to APC: they abstained.
Uniting the party is the biggest task and that is where the biggest effort must be deployed.

Every other thing is important including media narratives and all that, but no political force in Nigeria can match the PDP when it is truly and fully united in action.
