A veteran Musician, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has advised the electorate to put politicians’ campaign promises into writing before voting them into office at the upcoming 2019 general elections.

Oputa, who spoke yesterday in Abuja during the launch of the social contract initiative introduced by the OurMumuDonDo movement, said the essence of the project is for the common man to first understand the concept and basis for a social contract as a necessary pact between the people and the political class.

This, according to him, would enable them demand a greater access to government through transparent and accountable leadership, prevent and curb corruption by getting involved, and participate by performing civic duties.

He said through the campaign, the movement hopes to ramp up citizens’ engagement in the democratic process and also discourage the shameful and unenviable tradition of politics as a pecuniary transaction where the electorate are induced by the political class.

“We understand that the future of Nigeria is presently hanging in the balance owing to the many years of misrule in the country.

The collective wealth of the people has been greedily cumulated by the oppressive few.”
