What would you prefer to get 2019, PVC or International Passport?

2019 general election is fast approaching, just at the same time Nigeria is looking more unpromising and more of a shithole than a country 🙂

So which would you rather get before the elections?

PVC or International passport?

Ask me and I am going to tell you these 2 are just side by side the most similar piece of Identity you can ever have in a country like this.

Weigh your options, having any of the 2 is the assurance of a better future or otherwise. You could make the wrong choice by voting for the wrong person to occupy a post that will determine the next few important years of your life. Or you can get an international passport to run out of the country only to find yourself stuck in a country where you loose your freedom and realized there is no easy way back (ask people who ran to Libya).

Let us talk about getting a PVC first. What are the benefits of having your PVC?

Ask me is this democracy? If this is what democracy is I think I am no longer interested in this form of government. Your PVC doesn’t guarantee you anything in this country. Wether you want the candidate or not, you have to live with it for the next 4-8years of your life. You are going to be left with making a tough choice when the time comes. The question is, is there anyone that can take the country to the promise land? Imagine a 2019 elections and you will have to choose between Buhari and Atiku. Is that the better future anyone can promise you? Does that look like anything like it? Trust me, the next 4 years is going to be as shitty as the 1st term has been. Well it’s democracy you don’t have a choice, even If you don’t want any of them, there are over 50-100million other Nigerians that are going to make this decision for you and you are going to bear and feel the consequence alone, as they are going to do too.

And there is getting an international passport and try to make a run for it. This is also 1 of the toughest and scariest decision to make in this country. Living is tough and Leaving is rather hard. Where do you want to go to? Libya? Did you hear about the slave trade? There is a price on your head at the end and you are going to face hardship in another dimension while in your pursuit for better future abroad. Libya “The road to Europe”! Or how do you feel about going of a visa Interview at the USembassy or Consulate and ending up with a 214b letter 🙂 it’s depressing isn’t it? And here is a list of Visa-Free countries for Nigerians:
