Bennet Omeke – Our Politicians Keep Rigging



This is a cartoon on voters’ apathy. People are seen talking on the street on why they see no point in voting because they believe politicians rig elections and their votes do not count. In agreement, a woman says all she uses her voter card for is to tender it as an identity card at her bank.

Adeeko Olusegun – I Will Rig Election…

In this cartoon, there is a woman and a boy talking. The woman finds a teachable moment in a statement made by Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Ọ̀yọ́ state. According to the governor, his political party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) “won’t rig [election] for anybody”.

The woman wants the child to practice his English language skills by asking him to convert “I will rig election” into future tense. The poor boy instead thinks the woman implies that she would rig election and he replies that she would go to jail.

In a way, this is a didactic cartoon. It seems to be teaching adults and young children about what should happen if someone takes part in fraudulent electoral activities.
