MACANTHONY from your write-up we now know that the NIGERIAN COMMUNITY in Guangzhou china is planing to hold elections on the 20th of march 2010 to elect officers to run the affairs of the community, what we want to know are...
(1) who and who are contesting for the office of the president
(2)who is eligible to vote..........meaning who is qualified to vote...... who can vote
(3)where will the elections take place and the time of voting
Answers to this questions will help to determine who and who can participate in the election process either as a candidate or a voter or even a spectator, because to the best of my knowledge majority of Nigerians living here dont know much about the activities of the NIGERIAN COMMUNITY and who is eligible to be a member ,reason is because most people here dont have valid papers to reside here and that makes them illegal immigrants and so they dont come out to participate in things like this and even when they are interested the few that have papers tend to act tin gods and even discriminate against them....so try to sensitize the people on the activities of the community and who is eligible to be a member and what it takes to be a member because many people think that if u dont have ur valid papers u cant be a member.
As for Mr EMMA OJUKWU, i want to thank him for the good job he and his team has been doing so far, case in point is the help they rendered to the late Mr John Oleka,it is true that the late Mr Oleka was not a registered member of the Nigerian Community, but when he was brought to the office of the community seriously ill Mr Ojukwu and his team did every thing they could do to get him medical help and when he insisted on being taken back to Nigeria, Mr Ojukwu and his team raised the money for his fine and ticket and got him his exit visa almost immediately, unfortunately he died 3 days after arriving Nigeria.We thank Mr Emma Ojukwu, Prince, the Nigerian Community and all those who donated money to see that he was sent home.
As you guys go into the elections, let us bear in mind that it is not a do or die affair, let it be democratic and devoured of rigging and violence and the losers should accept the result of the elections in good faith.
