Nigerian music icon, Innocent Idibia, popularly known in the entertainment industry as 2Baba has called on Nigerian youths to register for their Permanent Voters Cards (PVC), ahead of 2019 general elections. The 'African Queen' crooner stated this on Thursday at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Campus Outreach program on `Youth Votes Count,’’ at the University of Abuja.
2Baba who is also an INEC Youths Ambassador, urged the youth to actively get involved in constructive political discussions, especially social media. According to him;
“Your vote is your bragging right, so get your PVCs, so take your destinies into your hands, whatever you want to be in the next 10 years start now.
“Let us go out and vote for our conscience. We have always been told that we are the future of Nigeria, it is our time now yet the old is still encroaching into our space. This coming election is our opportunity to change things, your destiny is what you make of it so use it wisely.’’
Another ambassador, Cobhams Asuquo also urged the youths to seize the forthcoming opportunity by getting their PVCs and voting the leader of their choice.
“Your vote is your right. It is your power, I beg you to choose to exercise that power because it determines what kind of future we will have as a nation. So I am begging you to use your vote wisely and intentionally collect your PVCs and make sure that come 2019, under rain or sunshine, you will come out to vote.’’
