·Who will push her up now that Buhari is going, Obi or Tinubu?
Many have revealed how their businesses crashed or how their jobs failed. This pushed them from grace to grass. They have blamed the outgoing president.
Now, they look up for a saviour, but did the elections throw one up?
A 35-year-old woman living in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has told the story of her life under the Buhari administration.
Edith Anasonye (not real name) who resides in Eagle Island area of the Garden City told BD Sunday that Buhari pushed her out of the office as administrative staff member in an oil servicing company to be selling vegetable and fruits at a village market at a corner of Mile One Market.
The admin staff turned petty trader said her job was doing well until foreign exchange went haywire and out of rich, leading to rationalization in her workplace.
After searching for another job for over one year with hunger pelting her three children in the face of her husband still unemployed, she said she joined a neighbour who sells fruits to stay beside her table at the market corner.
Soon, she got used to the shame of becoming a petty trader as long as it began to put daily food in her home.
She said she lost her maid to poverty (she ran away) and she has had to look after her children, take them to and fro school, and run around in the market.
“E no go better for Buhari”, she said, pleading with the incoming administration to bring down the Dollar rate, reduce inflation, fight insecurity, and create jobs. She still dreams of the day she would be called back to her duty post in the company.
Most hopeless Nigerians like Edith did not ever believe that the APC would win and return to power, or that a very old man would replace an older man. Will the tribunal give them who they claim they wanted or has INEC had final say?
