People that make money most during election period in Nigeria

Election period in Nigeria is one of the times businesses experience growth in their profit chart, well not all businesses. Each campaign rally organized by each political party cost nothing less than 1 million Naria for the cheapest of them. Add together all the logistics and expenses, you would be surprised at how much politicians throw away.

Its in favor of everyone in general, the money gets to circulate again. Everyone gets his or her fair share of money flowing in the circle, but some people doing certain businesses get most of the money during election period and they are listed below.

People that make money most during election period in Nigeria

Printing Press

These ones are the top earners. If there was one printing press in Nigeria, they will make more money in a day than bill gate. How ? Every street and road in Nigeria now is decorated with posters and fliers of all sort, campaign, manifestos, slanders etc. And not less than 100 posters are pasted in each street. Do the math.

So, get your own printing press against 2023 general elections.

Graphic Designers

Graphics designers are the second top earners, the design the printed fliers and they also design the online campaigns. Printing press can decide to be partisan, but graphics designers are not. They are best of any world. And trust me they double the cost when in contact with political parties.

Basic knowledge of Photoshop and the right connections can get you started. But you must really know your thing.

Wears Manufacturing factory

The third most lucrative business during election period in Nigeria. You can’t count the number of customized polo and caps during a political parties’s campaign. Wears manufacturing companies swing into 24 hours work time to meet demands during election periods. They are almost overwhelmed by the demand, so they increase the cost of production and guess what, politicians can afford any price.

Isn’t this a good business ideas ahead of 2023 ?.

Media Houses

Media houses are two times busier during election times. You can barely find a free slot with media houses because politicians own some media houses or have already paid for the free slots. It takes a lot to start up a media company, and it takes a lot to run it, so they’ll charge you a lot for a advert slot.

Stage Makers

These ones organize campaign grounds for parties. Sometimes if you don’t pay them well, they can build a collapsible stage for you, like the one that happened in Kebbi state. So political parties dish out serious amount for these guys and they deliver as much as you can pay.

To start, grab basic furniture making skills and enhance to metal work and general stage setup, then you’re good to go.

Bloggers

Bloggers too make money during election period, its part of their earning means. Displaying political ads online is a fortune generator for every blogger. You can extend to sponsored articles despite its side effect, but its your money right ? With a good blog, you can make up to 100,000 naira in a month.

Have good research and typing skills. Then pick a niche you know that relates with politics then you’re ready.

All of a sudden NGOs

During election period we see sudden spring out of unknown, overnight NGOs that agitate for various movements. Free and fair election, say no to vote buying, credible election, say no to political thuggery, etc. These are some of the topics these “All of a sudden NGOs” agitate for. They have their way of making money from it and its unique to each organization.

Reputable NGO’s perform their civic duties too, but you get to see more NGO in action only during election period.

To quench a fire is not by adding fire, you add water. Give yourself  a peace of mind and most importantly try again. You can never be wrong this time. If you become, stay positive and try again.
