‘’Our Condition Will Not Change Unless We Change Ourselves’’ – Nuruddeen Lemu

The Director, Research and Training, Da’wah Institute of Islamic Education Trust, Nuruddeen Lemu recently encouraged Nigerians especially the youths to participate fully in the forthcoming 2023 general elections. 

 

Lemu, an advocate for Anap Foundation, said ‘’ our condition will not change unless we change ourselves. Our leaders won’t change unless we change them. If we have the will, we have a way. And it can start with a voter’s card”.

 

Continuing further, he pleaded with the Nigerian youths to shun any form of violence that might escalate to war or unnecessary bloodshed as the 2023 elections season gathers momentum.

 

According to Atedo Peterside, Founder of Stanbic IBTC Bank + President & Founder of Anap Foundation, ‘’Nigerian youths should remember that there are a lot of bitter old men in the polity waiting to take advantage of the youths to perpetuate their evil agenda towards the 2023 general elections. “War is when the young and stupid are tricked by the old and bitter into killing each other, these bitter old men are not worth dying for”, he submitted.

 

His position 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.

 

The campaign is in full gear with the initial advocates of the 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.
