Shehu Sani Sends Message To Nigerian Youths Ahead Of February 25th Election
Former Senator Representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, Shehu Sani, has taken to social media to admonish Nigerian youths ahead of the February 25th presidential election.
42 days ahead of the 2023 general elections, the former lawmaker, via his verified Twitter page on Thursday evening, observed that the Nigerian youths constitute a chunk of the total registered voters across states.
Sani urged the youths to take advantage of the figures at the forthcoming polls to take back their country with their Permanent Voter Cards (PVC) or continue to live their lives protesting as usual.
He also said the choice is theirs to make or live fighting with placards. Sani’s tweet reads: “The Nigerian Youth constitute the majority of the 93 million registered voters. The choices are yours: to take back your country with your votes or to live the rest of your lives with placards and Aluta solidarity songs and gbosa, gbosa mentality.”
In another post earlier, the former lawmaker charged the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) and the Nurses Association (NANNM), to invite all 2023 Presidential candidates for a complete medical test, and make the result public.
This, according to him, will settle the controversy over the health status of the contenders.
