One of the critical determinants in next year’s election are the youths in Nigeria who constitute 60% of the entire population of the nation. Its a worthy note then to have every initiative that will encourage this section of the Nigerian society to actively participate in the elctoral process.
Nigerian stars Tiwa Savage, Adekunle Gold, Falz, Mayorkun, Orezi, Slimcase, Bamike Olawunmi(AKA Bam Bam), Betty Harry and Jane Michael Ekanemhave added their voices to ONE’s #VoteYourFuture Campaign. For the campaign, the superstars speak out on why each vote counts and how the future of Nigeria is in the hands of the youth.
This campaign arises from the need to take leaders to account especially as Nigeria commences its race for the next President in 2019.
They have also charged the government to create more jobs, tackle corruption, healthcare, education, gender equality amongst other topical issues and most importantly create policies and investments that unlock the potential of Nigerians.
This Is The #VoteYourFuture Declaration
We, the youth of Nigeria, call upon all aspiring leaders to endorse our youth declaration.
We see mass unemployment, failing infrastructure, corruption, gender inequality, extreme poverty, broken promises. And we know our nation can do better.
We hope tomorrow will bring an opportunity to thrive, not just survive. We are nation builders who can make Naija beta.
Now we speak with one voice. United across tribe, religion and gender, we stand together and face those that try to divide us.
We pledge to Nigeria our country: to serve her with all our strength, to defend her unity, to uphold her honour and glory. And we will vote for our future.
We ask that you listen to and collaborate with us. That you create 3 million jobs each year and tackle corruption, healthcare, education, gender inequality, and agriculture; with investments and policies that unlock the potential of young Nigerians.
We promise to hold you accountable for your words and actions. We are more than half of the population and together we cannot be ignored.
We are voting. We are the future. And the future is now.
