2023 general elections and the youth factor

The 2023 general elections poised a great significance in our dear nation as the need for firm, experienced and dedicated leadership remains the greatest challenge we are facing.

Nigerians must be very firm in their choice of leaders. No political party holds the key to repositioning this country other than the preparedness and pedigree of its flag bearer. We had tested the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and now the All Progressives Congress (APC). It is regrettable that one cannot differentiate the ills in the PDP led government from that of the APC. Sadly, the degree to which corruption is striving is aggravated yet the mantra was to fight corruption. Unemployment, heightened crime and criminality, hunger and insecurity among others are yet to receive the needed attention yet we are concerned about which party should lead us as a nation.

Unfortunately, there is no difference between all the political parties in Nigeria. No wonder, politicians wittingly cross carpet from one party to the other to satisfy their curiosity and interest yet citizens whose welfare has been abandoned are concerned about political parties rather than the competence of its flag bearer.

The youths must rise to the occasion by determining what happens in the 2023 general elections. Youths and women remain the key determinants in our election and any attempt to cause disunity among these groups by greedy politicians should be rejected. The coordination among younger persons in mobilising citizens on voter registration is commendable.  Leaders in their capacities should encourage their members to get their voters cards and ensure they go out and vote when it is time. The electoral law, as amended, is a great booster. Citizens must make sure they coordinate themselves in the right way and make sure no one manipulates them at their voting centres.  Nigerian youths must remain very peaceful and law abiding as we desire a peaceful and rancour free election in 2023.

Nigeria is in need of a revolutionary leader and your vote in the 2023 election will make a huge difference. The future is now. Vote wisely.
