The most effective tool for the teeming youth population to safeguard Nigeria’s democracy and save their own futures in the nation remains the holding of Permanent Voter Cards, or PVC, and active participation in the elections of 2023.
During a PVC fiesta in Kaduna to raise awareness of the need for youths to be more involved in the political process before next year’s General elections, various Nigerians expressed this viewpoint.
The Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) decision to extend voter registration has been praised and hailed as a chance for more individuals to obtain Permanent Voter Cards to vote in the general elections of 2023.
With statistics showing that youth population constitutes majority of the electorates, this event tagged ‘Atiku PVC carnival’ is to raise awareness for more youths participation in electoral process through collection of their PVCs.
Speakers at this Kaduna event say a new Nigeria is possible when there is a paradigm shift in the quality of the leadership which can only be achieved when the youths collectively resolve to be fully involved in the electoral process.
Given the socio economic and security challenges experience in Nigeria, these youths said it is time for their PVCs to work the talk.
These youths at this Kaduna PVC carnival said they are resolved to continue to create more awareness to enable all the youths across the country to take advantage of the two-month extension of voters registration by INEC to get their PVCs.
