About Nigeria Land
Meme reproduction and political corruption in Nigeria land. Political corruption and participatory structures in memes. The 2015 presidential election is an example of this phenomenon.
The Meme has an ambiguous meaning but is usually associated with political corruption. The political corruption meme is a popular choice for its Participatory structure. While it’s not clear how memes are created, there is evidence that the political corruption meme has become a popular choice among youths.
Meme reproduction on Nairaland
Meme reproduction on Nairaland politics reflects a complex mix of participatory and visual-cultural representations. This participatory structure was most apparent during Nigeria’s 2015 presidential election, where memes were an important topic of discussion.
Participants debated social, cultural, and political issues and produced a wealth of memes in the process. Consequently, these memes have become a valuable tool in sociopolitical negotiations and election campaigns.
Meme pictures depict the unsuitability of various political teams, ranging from the pdp/gej to the apc/gmb. These pictures are contestations of their unsuitability, and the images are often categorized into four categories: terrorism, animosity, corruption, and incompetence. A critical discourse analysis framework helped analyze these memes and determine their protest value.
In Nigeria, politicians’ incompetence and corruption are the most powerful discourses, and are propagated to effect positive change. However, these discourses also trigger counter discourses.
People criticized, copied, or mocked the campaign discourse in order to undermine the other side. Similarly, the images reproduced in the memes were fused into Nairaland discussions. This study demonstrates the role of memes in Nairaland politics.
Participatory structure of memes
The emergence of a participatory meme-culture has been widely observed in Nigeria. The images portrayed in the campaign were analyzed using Critical Discourse Analysis. These images show how the social web functions to contest power.
In Nigeria, memes have a strong protest value, reflecting the animosity and incompetence of the political elites. However, the meme-culture has also contributed to a heightened sense of political polarization.
A recent study has examined the use of memes as a means of dealing with stressful situations. The study outlines four stages in the process of dealing with social events. Memes help to understand the causes and consequences of external events.
They are replicable and can also be used to influence individual behaviour. These social phenomena can lead to an evolution of memes, which become a measure of collective coping and contribute to cultural understanding.
Another aspect of the study is the role of memes in Nigerian politics. It was found that the memes used to promote political ideologies and campaigns were based on the political narratives of other nations and leaders.
In Nigeria, politicians from Australia, Italy, and New Zealand were referenced in memes as villains, while the leader of the United States was viewed as a hero. These memes, while not exclusively related to Nigerian politics, had other parallels.
Nigeria’s 2015 presidential electioneering
A critical analysis of Nigeria’s 2015 Presidential Electioneering has shown that the ethno-religious element played a dominant role in the campaign.
The ethno-religious element infused the campaign messages with religious and ethnic chauvinism and justified the geographical dispersion of voting in the country. But is this truly a factor in the election? How does the ethno-religious component affect the outcome of the election?
The APC’s campaign promises reflected the party’s underlying values. The party promises to generate 3 million new jobs a year, a commitment that would make Nigeria one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
It also promises to ban all public officials from seeking medical treatment abroad and implement the National Gender Policy, which prioritizes ceding at least 35% of government appointive positions to women.
The previous elections had suffered from high voter apathy and “sit tight syndrome” among politicians, who were perceived to be complicit in the delaying of the elections. A high degree of political consciousness among the electorate and a high level of leadership from politicians reflected the shift. However, the results were far from the desired outcomes.
There were serious concerns about a violent transfer of power. The 2015 election threw doubt on the legitimacy of the resulting change and raised questions about the integrity of the process.
A key issue in this Nigerian election was the efficacy of the media in disseminating information. The group used the media’s power to promote its own political agenda, dividing voters along ethnic and religious lines.
This approach arguably resulted in a post-election crisis in Nigeria, a situation that can only worsen if the media does not report the truth. And, this is where the Nigerian media comes in.
The high incidence of political corruption in Nigeria and other parts of the African continent can be attributed to the country’s social system. This system encourages the practice of nepotism and clientelism and requires public officials to attend to the needs of hordes of dependants.
Political corruption in Nigeria is a complex issue, and the sociological study of this issue requires a theoretical basis. A study by Dr Arno Boenner, for example, examines the Nigerian state and its colonial predecessors and argues that the country is a product of historical institutionalism.
This analysis shows that political corruption in Nigeria has a direct impact on the lives of Nigerian citizens. The underlying problem is that the government apparatus has become a sham for political elites, which has led to increased political apathy and a distrust of democratic ideals.
This paper examines the extent of political corruption in Nigeria and the implications for the country’s poverty eradication strategy. Corruption in Nigeria has also negatively affected Nigerian society and has undermined Nigeria’s poverty eradication efforts.
While many argue that religion plays an important role in combating corruption, evidences suggest that religion in Nigeria has become corrupted. Some prominent religious figures have been implicated in the rise of political corruption in Nigeria.
In addition, religion is increasingly being used as a tool by politicians to manipulate the fragile political system. Despite claims of secularism, Nigeria’s religious institutions are subject to a range of corruption. Hence, religion in Nigeria should not be regarded as a panacea for corruption.
Profiteering from sect’s attack
The current controversy is over whether the gej/pdp team was profiting from the sect’s attack. Although the apc/gmb team is still affiliated with a northern political figure and a terrorist group, it is widely believed that both teams were profiting from the attack. But does this really happen? What are the motives behind the alleged nairaland memes?
In Nigeria, bloodletting in the name of religion has caused millions of dollars’ worth of damage and thousands of casualties. The Maitatsene uprising resulted in the loss of lives and property worth millions of dollars.
In Zaria city, clashes between a militant Shi’ite religious sect and the Nigerian army led to the destruction of an entire neighbourhood. In the Niger Delta, the violence has continued in many parts of the state.
Boko Haram subsequently released a video in March 2013 that showed the Ansaru logo and other prominent members. While the version made public was edited, it still featured “highlight clips” of the militant group’s leaders, suggesting that the clips were intended for internal use.
Further, the Boko Haram videos were filmed in a forested area resembling Borno’s Sambisa Forest. Meanwhile, Shekau’s November 2012 video was filmed in a desert area.
While Boko Haram initially targeted Bornu, Yobe, and Adamawa states, the group was able to expand its reach to Abuja and beyond. Soon, Boko Haram began conducting drive-by shootings and suicide bombing campaigns in cities throughout the country, including the capital city, as well as Bauchi state. In Nigeria, Boko Haram has influenced political life and a wide range of government institutions.
Unsuitability of pdp/gej and apc/gmb teams
Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, known as GEJ by many, does not appear in the list of candidates who bought APC presidential nomination forms.
This is despite the fact that Jonathan’s supporters stormed the state capital of Bayelsa State two weeks ago and congratulated President Muhammadu Buhari. This shows how much Goodluck Jonathan is loved in the state.
Jonathan, a member of the minority Ijaw community, is a former vice president. Jonathan was under pressure not to contest the 2011 elections, as doing so would have upset the zoning agreement in the PDP.
However, his ascension threw a spanner in the works. It is a known fact that Jonathan is a renowned economist and has a degree in biology and chemistry.
The former president was lured to run for the presidency of Nigeria by the APC after his controversial 2016 campaign. Jonathan, a moderate, will be sold as a candidate who will unite the country and bring about a peaceful transition.
Jonathan has had to contend with polarisation since Buhari took power in 2015, and he is hoping to sell himself as a compromise candidate who can work with Buhari. Jonathan’s presidential candidacy is on hold and there is no certainty that he will run for president in 2023.
