I do not know the family in this video. But as Nov 3 arrives for the U.S. election, I have just realized that Nigeria and America are united by one thing: politicians are funny. In the video, a letter signed by Trump was dropped in a free food basket given to churches to distribute. That is America’s TraderMoni, FarmerMoni, and all those vote-inducing schemes APC (and PDP with different names during their time) used to rig elections of the minds in Nigeria.
But as that happens, I respect the American political system. These guys have modelled my family very well. My wife, Ifeoma, gets a different messaging from what they send to me. They show her pictures of kids and schools; mine is about making things easier to grow a business. Yes, even in the same house, they are able to ultra-target the messaging.
This is an election built on data. They have gotten really close!
