The Speaker of the Nigerian Youth Parliament Rt. Hon. (Dr.) Azeezat Yishawu has commended the efforts of all stakeholders in the just concluded Osun Gubernatorial election for ensuring civility, transparent, credible free and fair election devoid of thuggery and violence which was the norm in time past, the character of young people in the Osun election has send the needed signal across the federation, that youths would conduct themselves in a credible manner before, during and after any Electoral contest moving forward and would vote for candidate of their choice without fear or favour.
It has also proven without any doubt that young people are not lazy , irresponsible nor will they be used as machinery by political tyrants.
The Speaker also acknowledge the conducts of the Independent National Electoral Commission, the Police force, Election Observers, Gender and PWD Organisations on yet another credible poll. she charged INEC to do better as the commission is going out to fully implement the electoral act in the coming general election in 2023, this she believe would be a launchpad towards a credible poll as young people are ready to partake and be a part of electioneering process either as actor or as credible observers.
Dr. Yishawu calls on all political parties and their stalwarts to recognise meaningfully the strenght of the Nigerian Youth and give young Nigerians the impetus to unleash their potentials not just as drivers of electoral victories but as player in governance and administration.
She further urged all political parties and allies to campaign in the next general elections with Integrity, humility and led an issue based campaign.
Democracy is based upon the conviction there are extraordinary possibilities in ordinary people. She charges young people to own the process of election while preaching that their vote should only be for those who would birth the Nigeria of our dreams which spew inclusion and growth for our potentials. Nigeria is Ours Nigeria we Serve
