1. Attachment to a godfather or godmother: Godfather is not about which prominent politician that you know or knows you by name or not even an elderly politician who you communicate with on social media. An established politician in Africa, especially, could explain better since the word godfather or godmother is not just a dictionary word with respect to it’s application. Everyone hoping to become a successful politician, either young or old, need a godfather in their political establishment. Political authority is full appointments. Individuals, therefore needs to be known and seen by an appointing authority or their cronies that would appoint anyone to any position. Anyone participating in any act of politics with an intention to migrate into the political space will be engaging in a fruitless venture if such a person does not have any recognized godfather or god mother in their political party.

2. Engaged in any form of meaningful employment: Rewards from politics is by benefiting from any opportunity provided by the government of the day. Individuals in any employment under the influence of goverment stand the chance to be promoted in the same institution or appointed to affiliated institutions. Individual in employments not under the influence of goverment also stand the chance to quote their experience at their institution as basis for goverment to appoint such a person into the goverment institution. Unemployed individuals and/or those without any professional qualification stands the chance to be overlooked for any possible reward.

3. Enough money and/or established business owner: Business and politics are intertwined with each other and players from either the political side or the business side invest in each other.
