KWARA – The Brain Builders Youth Development Initiative (BBYDI), has launched a new project ‘YVote Naija’ on January 7,2021, in Ilorin Kwara state.

The Program, which was delivered by the Executive Director of the initiative gave many reasons why Youth should have a full knowledge of the program.

In a statement, He said “democracy is built on the principle of participation where all citizens are expected to play active roles. This defines the art of nation-building where everyone is involved. In a democratic country like Nigeria, one of the metrics of measuring our democratic status is highlighted by regular elections.

Since 1999 when the country returned to democracy, after a long hiatus with military rule, the country has held 6 elections. Some of the low points of these elections have been massive electoral apathy influenced by factors such as electoral violence, political thuggery, rigging, etc.

Nonetheless, elections are what determine the quality of leadership a country has. Growing political apathy harms the development of the country. This is one of the reasons why we have decided to launch YVoteNaija.

He further added that “YVote Naija is a project using data and digital systems to increase voter participation in elections and create a culture of participatory democracy. We set out to educate Nigerians on the need to actively participate in the electoral process. We shall also be advocating for free, fair and peaceful elections. The process of electing public officials must be transparent and citizens must exercise their franchise without fear.
