The past elections were an epic confrontation between two opposing political camps. Those who believed in the progressive governance of the people gathered under the banner of the APC. Those who harkened to the conservative elitism that had cast this nation downward for so many years held to the PDP.

The era of First Ladies allocating oil wells, shaming and insulting governors isnâ€™t so far away. However, Nigerians are glad to see the end of it, with a clear return to sanity: first ladies arenâ€™t elected officials.
