‘’Nigerian Youths Have To Use The 2023 Elections To Rise Up’’ – Tomiwa Aladekomo

One of the initial advocates of Anap Foundation, Tomiwa Aladekomo, National Chair, Youth Party informed that this initiative is expected to encourage the youths to register and pick up their voter’s card to participate and vote in the 2023 general elections, which has become expedient because the youth population is over 60%, moreover, the youths are more affected by government policies.

Aladekomo noted further “All too often, we think that we have no power to change the way things are. That is what the people who made Nigeria as it is would have us think, it is a lie. They are not smarter, more capable than we are. Nigerian youths simply have to use the opportunity of the 2023 general elections to rise up the task of building the world that we want”.

This is coming as Anap Foundation kick-starts its enlightenment campaign-themed GoNigeria, a campaign to sensitize Nigerian youths to participate actively in the electoral process leading to the election of visionary leaders during the general elections come 2023.

Anap Foundation will be partnering with the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] and other advocates, celebrity ambassadors, corporate bodies as well as volunteers in ensuring a huge success is attained in encouraging the youths in understanding that their votes count in having the right leaders at the country’s helm of affairs.

The campaign is in full gear with the initial advocates of Anap Foundation, who have intensified efforts at encouraging young Nigerians to register and collect their PVC to vote in next year’s general elections towards ensuring good governance and accessing the true dividends of democracy.
