In this cartoon, set in a boxing ring, a bunch of kitted and terrified men are gearing up to challenge the caricature of President Muhammadu Buhari who also happens to have a dog labeled “incumbency” beside him.
The terrified men are representatives of some political parties hoping to form a coalition. The nPDP: new People’s Democratic Party; rAPC: reformed All Progressives Congress; and the SDP: Social Democratic Party. Both nPDP and rAPC are not really political parties. They are just factions of the All Progressives Congress and the People’s Democratic Party.
One of the things that is really fascinating about this cartoon is the incumbent dog. The dog could be anything from state security agents, to the military, national commonwealth, etc. Just anything the incumbent administration can lay its hands on.
