Nigerian singer/songwriter, Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy has told youths across the country to protect their votes at their polling units during the 2023 general elections.
Oputa made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sideline of the ‘YellOut 4 Good Governance in Nigeria’ event on Friday in Abuja.
He said the ‘YellOut’ programme was a reawakening for the Nigerian youth, adding that he was very happy and proud of the youth in the country.
“I have told them that the salvation of any country lies in the hands of the exceptional people; these people are the great Nigerian youths.
“They already know their rights, but my call to them is that they should stand and defend those rights at the polling booths.
“Nigeria is getting dangerous for my liking, and because of years of disunity and inaction, there are some sacrifices that need to be made and we are going to make these sacrifices,” Oputa told NAN.
