The Board Chairperson of Open Society Initiative for West Africa (OSIWA), Ms. Ayisha Osori, yesterday, advised Nigerian youths to use their population and Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs) to make changes in electoral processes and system of governance in 2019, as negative reactions continued to trail the comment made by President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigerian youths are lazy.

Osori, a lawyer and politician gave the advice during a Campus Book Tour to Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Kaduna pertaining to a book she wrote, entitled: ‘Love Does Not Win Elections,’ to share her experience in politics. 

She explained that Nigeria belongs to the youths more than the old people.

Osori, who lost the House of Representatives primary elections during the AMAC/ Bwari Federal Constituency primaries on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party, (PDP) in 2014, said Nigerian politics is dysfunctional, and does not work for all, but few elite. He said there is need for less privileged ones to “participate, vote wisely and access candidates logically, based on their criteria.”

While blaming the rots in Nigeria’s political system on greedy attitude of Nigerian elites, who believe that the whole country belongs to them, she observed that “60 per cent of Nigerians are youths, but have not done anything with their numbers.
