- Banky W has responded to President Buhari’s recent speech regarding Nigerian youths
- The famous singer asked youths to go and get their permanent voters card
- He said that is the only way one can actually help Nigeria become a better place
President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent speech regarding Nigerian youths is still eliciting responses from all over the country.
Popular Nigerian musician Banky W took to his Instagram page to write that whether one agrees with the president or not, the best way to make Nigeria a better place is for youths to go and get their permanent voters card.
Read his full statement below:
“So apparently, this is what our President thinks about "a lot of the Nigerian youth". What do you guys think?
I have a suggestion. Whether you agree, or disagree with the President's comments, this time, do a little bit more than posting, commenting, retweeting, and complaining. Go and register to vote.
I've sat in countless meetings, seminars, conferences and hangouts with young people. We are always great at pointing out our issues.. But the truth is that we can sit around and complain from now until Kingdom come. IT WILL NOT MATTER. INEC will not count your tweets. Let's turn the month of May into #PVCMay.
Even if you don't know who you're voting for.. even if you hate every single candidate. At least register.. so that if someone comes along who you feel compelled to support, you can.
If you're really serious about wanting Nigeria to be a better place, go and register to vote. Get your PVC asap. The registration period will end LONG before the elections come, so if you think you can wait until next year, you are wrong.
Get your PVC today. Or don't bother complaining about anything, because it won't matter. Your tweets will not count. Your vote will.”
Well said Mr W, well said!
