Celebrities, Banky W, Falz, Ebuka, Bisola and other personalities have arrived Abuja for the launch of the #VoteYourFuture campaign, hosted by ONE, a campaign and advocacy organisation.
The organisers said in a statement that the one-day youth was to urge youths to vote massively in the 2019 election.
The Vote Your Future youth summit, hosted by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, included interactive sessions between presidential candidates and citizens.
In his speech to the attendees, Banky W stated that every country has the leadership that they deserve.
“We deserve what we have gotten in Nigeria because we have never been involved. Each of us must demand from the people going for office on the issues they will be focusing on,” he said.
Falz charged Nigerians not to settle for two political parties as there are several political parties vying for the presidential seat.
The presidential candidate of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, Oby Ezekwesili, delivered a message, which was played at the event venue. In her address, she stated that she would make the citizens the centre of the vision for the nation if elected president.
A Youth Declaration created by ONE’s Youth Champions was also launched at the youth summit.
Ten Champions, representing Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones, were selected to draft Declaration.
Attendees signed the declaration and party candidates would be invited to sign.
