that potential. The approval ratings of all the present crop and generation of leaders is going to be based mostly on sentiments. Like oh! lets vote a new face. Oh! lets vote someone not from the North. Oh! lets vote someone that will favour us. That is why all the talk is on zoning. There is no real principle, no character and there is no expectation of a landslide victory in the coming 2011 polls given a fair election process. The politics I see is that of arm twisters; Common-give-it-to-me and snatch-it politics. That is why the major players are all going from one caucus to another and one meeting to another meeting and so on. ACN, OPC, Northern leaders whatever, Ohanneze, PDP NEC, Governors group etc. These are all arm wrestling meetings. None of them is appealing to the electorate none of them is populist.
Leadership is about giving direction that people feel confident to follow.
