    Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki has
    urged Nigerian youths to participate in the
    forthcoming 2019 elections, stressing that
    their participation in the polls will prevent
    rigging.
    Saraki who is the director-general of the

    Presidential Campaign Council, made the
    plea in a video posted on his Facebook
    page on Sunday, February 10.
    The Kwara-born politician called on all
    young Nigerians of voting age to see the
    2019 election as a test of the strength of
    their numbers, adding that with 51% of the
    voters on the register being youths, they
    make up the most crucial voting bloc in the

    His words: “To the young people of our nation, I
    want you to know that you cannot afford to just sit
    on the sidelines any longer. All across the world,
    young people like you are deciding who will lead
    their nations. The youth of Nigeria have an
    opportunity this time around to become the deciding
    factor.
    “On February 16, you must come out and vote. To sit
    at home is not an option. You have a big say in your
    future only if you vote.
    “I have read a lot of comments about young people
    saying that they won’t vote because their votes do
    not matter and that people want to rig the election.
    Here’s my answer: ‘If you vote, they can’t rig!’
    “The more people that come out to vote, the less
    likely it is for those that want to manipulate the
    results to do so – its a simple mathematics. It is the
    numbers of registered voters who failed to come out
    and vote that the riggers seek to manipulate in
    inflating votes for a candidate or group of
    candidates.
    “I urge you all, take this election seriously, and
    together, we can make history together by saving
    Nigeria’s future.”
