ABOUT THE BOOK
The hook, Secrets of Winning Elections, is a classical and unique work which reveals in one straight-forward volume all those essential variables/secrets which can make any political party, candidate or politician win an election. Before now, the assumptions that are rife in the electoral milieu are that one could win an election if one: has a deep pocket,tock-piles of arms; compromises the election officials; uses unorthodox means of manipulating the election; employs the power of incumbency absolutely to bend the rules or manipulate the election and employs political thugs to disrupt election day activities.
The above assumptions hypothesis have been proved to be invalid as the secrets of winning elections discussed in this book include: a proper understanding of the operations of the electoral process. a mastery of the rules of the game; a sound knowledge of the electoral constituencies: a proper understanding of the voters' electorate and bow to mobilize them. Sound knowledge of the operation of the political party platform. An identification of the myriad of victory-enhancing variables and an effective understanding of political culture as an instrument of success at elections. This book according to Emeritus Professor John A. A. Ayoade. -will be of great benefit to the general reader, experts and any student of the Nigerian electoral process. It will also serve as a reference book on Nigerian Electoral Law and regulations".
