“As a young Nigerian, I am doing my own bit to contribute to the political process. Recently I joined other public figures to explore ways of engaging with stakeholders in the election process. We have had several meetings with political aspirants and even the Independent National Election Commission. Our goal is to channel our influence to good, and find ways to better ascertain how young people can participate in the political process, and in a healthy way.
