For the first time in so many years, many upwardly mobile Nigerians are letting go of their apathy and are starting to care and passionately engage in political conversations. When you type in the words “Where Is” on Google, the suggested questions are all linked to the key actors in the upcoming elections which is an indicator of our growing interest.
The primary elections are over and now we know who gets to represent their party in the coming elections, but voter’s registration is still ongoing all over the country. With thirteen days left until the close of voter’s registration, you still have the time to register for your Permanent Voter’s Card and play a part in the 2023 elections.
Across the country, numerous centres have been set up to fast track this process. The European Union (EU) recently partnered with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to hold the “Youth Vote Count 2.0” campaign concert in Lagos, to ensure that Nigerian youths participate more in the electoral process. There’s also another concert planned for Abuja on the 25th of June and INEC would be conducting an open-air registration at the Eagle Square from the 20th to the 25th of June 2022.
