Young people are Nigeria’s future. As the nation gets ready to elect its President, we are coming together with one voice to hold our leaders to account.

Enough empty promises – we’re calling on leaders to create 3 million jobs each year and tackle corruption, healthcare, education, gender inequality and agriculture, with investments and policies that unlock the potential of young Nigerians.

Join the non-partisan campaign that’s uniting citizens across the country. #VoteYourFuture and sign the Youth Declaration to demand our leaders invest in Naija’s youth.

Sign the Youth Declaration

We, the youth of Nigeria, call upon all aspiring leaders to endorse our youth declaration.

We see mass unemployment, failing infrastructure, corruption, gender inequality, extreme poverty, broken promises. And we know our nation can do better.

We hope tomorrow will bring an opportunity to thrive, not just survive. We are nation builders who can make Naija beta.

Now we speak with one voice. United across tribe, religion and gender, we stand together and face those that try to divide us.

We pledge to Nigeria our country: to serve her with all our strength, to defend her unity, to uphold her honour and glory. And we will vote for our future.

We ask that you listen to and collaborate with us. That you create 3 million jobs each year and tackle corruption, healthcare, education, gender inequality, and agriculture; with investments and policies that unlock the potential of young Nigerians.

We promise to hold you accountable for your words and actions. We are more than half of the population and together we cannot be ignored.

We are voting. We are the future. And the future is now.

Know the issues

It is important that the candidates know the issues that affect Nigeria, and most importantly how to solve them. Candidates might not have all the answers, but they must know how to get the answers and they must demonstrate that knowledge when we, ordinary citizens, ask them questions. As citizens, we also have a responsibility to understand the issues that affect our community, states and nation.  You are the envoy of your community. Do your homework and know the issues.
