Nigerian singer Obiora Nwokolobia-Agu, commonly referred to as Obi-Won, has raised the enthusiasm of young Nigerians for the 2023 general election.
In a recent interview, the singer, who switched from secular music to gospel music, noted that young people are beginning to understand the power of numbers and are shifting their thinking from people who want their voice to be real to power. Calculated.
He said: “The interest of young Nigerians in the 2023 elections has been impressive. We have never had it like this.
In the past, the mentality of many youths was that, ’they will put who they want’. But now, we have an electoral act that is better than what obtained before.
We are beginning to see that to a large extent, votes are counting. There is an awakening, and young people are realising that there is power in their numbers. It is very encouraging.
However, we must be careful, so that violence, tribalism and all sorts of divisive things that had hindered us in the past will not be used against the current momentum of young.”
