We have got less than 8 months to the 2019 general election. Seems it’s a whole lot of time, but ‘No’ it’s just around the corner.
As Abraham Lincoln said:
“The ballot is stronger than the bullet.”
Stephanie Jiwul in a bid to prepare the minds of youths against going for the wrong odds in the 2019 general election, flags off a voluntarily campaign/awareness tagged #YourVoteYourRight
In Every election, Nigerian youths are used as thugs to fulfill thirsty interests of old politicians. Youths are instrumental in snatching ballot boxes, threatening aspirants and even the conduction of elections and yet we can’t capture power? What an irony.
The Nigerian youths comprise about 60% of the total 192 million Nigerians. The youths, with the most population are the most active age gap of Nigeria.
With this much strength of the youth, the youth stands the best position to decide the ticket for the 2019 general elections. But how many youths have their PVC?
The #YourVoteYourRight campaign is aimed at cajoling the youths out to vote and use their PVC’s. Not letting it lay low in the comfort of their wallets.
Stephanie Jiwul’s #YourVoteYourRight campaign is a voluntary service aimed at educating the youths of their rights and how to exercise it. Stephanie however sees the 0% involvement of the youths in Nigerian politics and strives to shoot it up.
The Nigerian politics and the democratic setup is congested by aging men who lacks contemporary build up. The youth stands in best for.
2019 Election gives the youth another opportunity to involve in the decision making and governance of the Nigerian state. Would your vote count?
