With Nigeria’s election brewing, the internet is becoming a hot spot for debates based on the polarity of who they support with the line between the candidates and parties being drawn clearly in the sand.
Elections are about polarization, different opinions and thoughts. It usually means ideology clashes like the left and the right in American politics. The left (democrats) has views on abortion, immigration, student debt, and gun violence and the right (republic) also has the opposite opinions on these issues - they never agree.
With the internet being a constant battleground, insults and ad hominem arguments are flying up and down. Many young Nigerians regard the election as a matter of life and death and people who do not support their preferred candidates are after their life and livelihood.
