The 2015 Nigeria Presidential Election scheduled for February 14 – St. Valentine’s Day – a day regarded by many as lovers’ day. From the background of various allegations levied against one another by the two “strongest” presidential candidates and their supporters, it is becoming glaring that one candidate is “taller and stronger”. Only if the rules of the game change can the “defending champion” win in this tournament.

This cartoon was published against the backdrop of several terrorists attacks by Boko-Haram group, following the “Chibok girls” abduction. This group has been terrorizing the Green-White-Green nation- Nigeria since 2009. On the eve of 14-15 April 2014, about 276 female students of Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State were Kidnapped. Their whereabouts are still unknown! Nowhere appeared safe: churches, houses, palaces, mosques, hospitals, shrines, motor parks, farmlands, schools, police stations, army barracks…everywhere has been “touched”. Paradoxically, nowhere seemed safe except the Boko-Haram’s den!
