“Please, assure me that you will register, pick your PVCs and vote. I also assure you that your vote will count.”
The concert, held at Tafawa Balewa Square, is part of INEC’s awareness campaign to mobilise youths for the ongoing nationwide Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
The concert had popular stars, such as Omawunmi and Waje, performing.
The campaign was in collaboration with the EU Support to Democratic Governance in Nigeria (EU-SDGN) and the Youth Initiative for Advocacy, Growth and Advancement (YIAGA).
The partnership’s goal is to ensure that the Nigerian youths participate fully in the ongoing CVR and vote in the 2023 general elections.
