Nigerian Man Tries To Commit Suicide As A Show Of Support To Presidential Aspirant

A yet-to-be-identified man caused drama at the Maitama area of Abuja after he was seen seated on a billboard advert with a rope tied around his neck.
He was also spotted with a poster of a presidential aspirant and 2019 boldly inscribed on his white native wear.
According to reports, the man allegedly planned to commit suicide as a show of support to the Presidential aspirant.
An online user named Ejike Sunday Ugwu, took to Facebook to share the story.
He wrote;
What I saw at Nicon junction in the Maitama axis of Abuja this Monday morning went a long way to remind me that here( Nigeria) is nothing but a drama theatre.
On my way to work today, we drove to Nicon junction, we met a young man seated on an advert gallery above the ground with a rope tied around his neck, a poster of a presidential aspirant stick on his cloth and 2019 boldly inscribed on his white agbada (native wear). He wore white shoes to match and a pair of eyeglasses.
People gathered, include force men since it’s a traffic moment, almost all stopped over to understand what was happening. The young man with the help of some Nigerians was untied and helped to climb down from the gallery!
According to popular opinion, He planned to commit suicide as a show of support to the Presidential aspirant!
Now, my questions are:
1) Where on this earth is a threat to commit suicide a way of projecting opinion?
2) What has a presidential aspirant and 2019 to do with a young man attempting to take his own life?
3) When will Nigerian youths realize that these elderly really do not have our future on their agenda?
4) Those that trecked from Lagos to Abuja in 2015, can they still track from Amac to Gwagalada for the same reason today?
5) Is this how we(the youths) will form leaders of tomorrow?
These and many other questions are demanding answers to. And as we are a few months away from another decisive moment (general election), we can only do ourselves a favor by tactfully discharging our civic right of voting with your future in mind and not the pocket for immediate gratification!
God bless Nigeria…
