Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, a former minister of special duties and intergovernmental affairs, has complimented Nigerian youngsters for their enthusiasm for PVCs.
Prior to the elections in 2023, they appeared eager to obtain their cards, according to the Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was obliged to extend the registration deadline of June 30 due to the rush for PVCs in numerous states.
Turaki stated in a statement that the incident was evidence that young Nigerians are prepared to determine the results of the upcoming elections.
They were admonished by the former Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate to stay determined and unafraid.
Turaki stressed that the youths of Africa’s most populous nation have the numbers and the power to effect real change.
“Right now, it is clear that whichever direction young persons asked us to go is where we are going.
“From the videos and pictures I have seen, the young people of Nigeria are tired of the status quo and are going out in large numbers to register to vote.
“Seeing the level of civic engagement on social media and on the streets, it is clear that young Nigerians are ready to take charge at all levels”, he said.
Turaki urged the youth to choose leaders who can handle the nation’s economic and security issues.
The former Minister urged people to register but also to turn up in large numbers on election days the next year.
