Obiora Nwokolobia-Agu, better known as Obiwon, a Nigerian singer, has praised Nigerian youths’ enthusiasm for the 2023 general elections.
In a recent interview, the singer, who has since transitioned from secular to gospel music, stated that young people are beginning to understand the power of numbers and have shifted their mindset from the people in power putting who they want to the fact that their votes can actually count.
He said: “The interest of young Nigerians in the 2023 elections has been impressive. We have never had it like this.
In the past, the mentality of many youths was that, ’they will put who they want’. But now, we have an electoral act that is better than what obtained before.
We are beginning to see that to a large extent, votes are counting. There is an awakening, and young people are realising that there is power in their numbers.
It is very encouraging. However, we must be careful, so that violence, tribalism and all sorts of divisive things that had hindered us in the past will not be used against the current momentum of young.”
Kemi Filani notes that the 2023 general elections have set a pace for history in Africa as the youths are fully prepared to vote for their preferred candidates without fear and intimidation. Some celebrities have also taken to social media to share updates of happenings in their polling units.
