“Our youth cheat themselves when they don’t vote, spend their time on the wrong things on social media, follow the glitterati (@BBNaijafan) instead of the literati (knowledge), and vote, not for ‘ought to win’ but ‘likely to win’ (bandwagon to nowhere, i.e. one chance!),” Kingsley Moghalu wrote on Twitter.
Previous presidential candidate in the February 2019 general elections, Kingsley Moghalu, says Nigerian adolescents and youths cheat themselves by the rule against casting a ballot and following the popular unscripted tv shows like Big Brother Naija.
The previous Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) expressed this in a tweet posted early today. He upbraided Nigerian adolescents for spending ‘their time on the off-base things via web-based networking media’ rather than putting resources into information.
