Nigerian Singer Banky W shares his thoughts on the trending hashtag ‘Lazy Nigerian Youths’, urging disgruntled Nigerians to stop the outburst on Twitter, rather they should register for their Permanent Voters’ Cards (PVC).
According to him, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will not count their tweets on election day.
Banky wrote: “Many young Nigerians have been tweeting non-stop with #LazyNigerianYouth and #LazyNigerianYouths to convey their displeasure at President Muhammadu Buhari’s remark. “I have a suggestion.
Whether you agree, or disagree with the President’s comments, this time, do a little bit more than posting, commenting, retweeting, and complaining. Go and register to vote. “I’ve sat in countless meetings, seminars, conferences and hangouts with young people.
We are always great at pointing out our issues.. but the truth is that we can sit around and complain from now until Kingdom come. It will not matter. INEC will not count your tweets. Let’s turn the month of May into #PVCMay.
“Even if you don’t know who you’re voting for.. even if you hate every single candidate. At least register.. so that if someone comes along who you feel compelled to support, you can.”
