As political parties gear up for the final round of campaigns leading up to the February 2019 elections, Nigerian celebrities and entertainers are putting their money where their mouths are by encouraging young people to get involved and choose their preferred candidates.
Only yesterday, rapper and Chocolate City exec MI Abaga
was at the Modibbo Adamawa University of Technology, Yola
where he was joined by Banky W, Waje, Uti and Korede Bello to speak at an INEC workshop for students and young adults at the institution.
The election season is usually marked by apathy among millions of Nigerian youths, something these celebs appear determined to end. The two main political parties in the country- All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party have already chosen their candidates: incumbent President Buhari and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.
