The smell of change is the air. Most people never believed that this day would come. When an incumbent president is voted out and a new president comes in. This war was waged on all platforms: Television, Radio, Billboards and Posters. The most toxic field was the Social Networks where soldiers battled it out, cut off ties, created enemies, shed blood and showed their true colors behind the scene of their mobile devices. This was a war that had to have one end: One President elect chosen by Nigerians.

The election adventure was tougher than Frodo’s journey to Mordor. But even with that, many strong moments were witnessed and showed the resilience of the Nigerian people.

Congratulations to Nigerians for finally showing how powerful their votes are. Congratulations to all who took part in the electoral process. Congratulations to Prof. Jega for carrying this job and making it look effortless. Congratulations to President Jonathan for showing how graceful one can be in his position and congratulations to General Buhari for becoming the President Elect.

Although this is a win for democracy, it is not over yet. There is a lot to be done to get Nigeria back and beyond her glory days. We can have them back only if we keep our voice together the way we did in this elections. We have shown that we the people hold the power and will hold our leaders accountable for all they do. Social media has bind us together and like a broom, we are effective and a force to be reckoned with.

Don’t fail us General Buhari. We have your back to move this country forward. It’s a fantastic position you know. We can also boot you out if we need to.

We are Nigeria.

God bless
