Presidential aspirant of the Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), Fela Durotoye has advised youths against selling their votes in the 2019 general elections.
Durotoye gave the counsel while addressing a gathering of youths about how they can realise their dreams on Saturday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
He also stressed the need for them to get their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs) to elect leaders who would help them shape Nigeria to the country of their choice.
Durotoye said; “Your vote is the right to the environment that will produce your dreams for you. So if you don’t have your PVC, you will most likely not get the government you deserve because you will not have the power to choose.”
“I’m not here to tell you to vote for me, I’m not sure I will ever tell anybody to vote for me because I am always going to tell you to vote for the country of your dreams; I will always tell you to vote for the values that you would want to live in and you would want your dreams to leave in,” he added.
He, however, stressed that one of the few ways by which the youth can hold the government accountable was to always carry out their fundamental right of electing the leaders they trust.
