This is Christmas. This is campaign period for politicians. Some campaigning for their friends, some campaigning for their party, some campaigning for a member of their church, while some are campaigning for their acquaintance. Some are also campaigning for their conscience. So, whom are you campaigning for? Why are you campaigning for him?
Are you campaigning for a morsel of bread? Esau sold his birthright for a morsel of bread because he was hungry.
“There are millions of homeless people in the world because humanity does not have a proper conscience!” ― Mehmet Murat ildan … is this true of you? Are you the reason why millions of people are homeless today? Could it be because of a decision you made without putting your conscience into consideration? Eraldo Banovac says: “Wealth and power aren’t the most important things in life. What is truly important is to have a clear conscience.”
Candidates have come to you for your votes. Some came with a promise of a better you. Some came with a promise of a better family for you. Some came with Manifesto, some came empty handed, some came with a conscience saddled manifesto. The faith of Arochukwu State Constituency lies in your decision. The faith of Abia State lies in the kind of decision you will make in the next 2-3 months.
Mehmet Murat ildan “Even when you are sitting in front of a beautiful view in the most beautiful and quiet place in the world, a thorn will prick you, it hurts a lot, what is that thorn? It is conscience! Because your conscience says that someone is dying somewhere while you are sitting in peace!”
When there is hunger in the community, when there is child mortality, when there is lack of electricity, when there is no good roads, when there is no pipe borne water, when there is no all-inclusive health scheme to take care of all, when there is no good life, what will your conscience do to you? It will remind you of a wrong decision you took.

Cowardice asks the question, is it safe? Expediency asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? But conscience asks the question, is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.
