Lol – anything matters: “Have you not heard that President Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?” That could add 0.1% to the tally and it matters in a tight election. Interestingly, your senator or house member in Nigeria can nominate you for the Nobel Peace Prize. Even your GST (general studies) 101 professor!
From the Nobel Peace website, nominations could come from “…members of national assemblies, governments, and international courts of law; university chancellors, professors of social science, history, philosophy, law and theology; leaders of peace research institutes and institutes of foreign affairs;…”
This is the form https://www.nobelpeaceprize.org/Nomination/Criteria-for-nominators and your senator can nominate you so that you can add it on your LinkedIn profile. Yes, you were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for “breaking a fight at Ajegunle Lagos between two men fighting over a bigger portion of nkwobi, zobo and amala”. Can I wish good luck?
Do not fall for politicians – I like the mind gaming. Joe Biden can get 50 nominations today if he wants also. But that is why politicking is a game of dynamic strategy. I received this email from the Trump campaign. Biden has also been pushing his own also. When you look deeper, it is all vapour. Yet, it is part of the business. Why? Numbers on elections day.---
