Here, Bennet Omeke captures the reality of party politics in Nigeria in creatively, as one would expect. This piece highlights a usual cycle in Nigerian politics: politicians defecting from one party to another.
However, instead of policians, Omeke uses worms. There are two apples. An infested and a rotten one labeled PDP (People’s Democratic Party) and a soon-to-be-rotten and -infested one labeled APC (All Progressives Congress).
The worms – the politicians – have already infested and sucked vitality out of the rotten apple and now they are on their way to their next victim: the apple that is being infested.
The other part of the cartoon is a reversal of the first. It shows what happens after a cycle of infestation is complete. Another cycle begins.
