Nigerian rapper and activist, Folarin Falana, AKA Falz, has asked Nigerian youths to ignore pessimists, head to the polls on Saturday, and vote for their candidate in the presidential election.
Falz in a video on his Instagram page on Sunday, charged youths and other well-meaning Nigerians to ignore the notion that their votes may not count.
According to him, it is time for the youths to decide their future.
He said, “Oya election don come oooo this is my PVC, I’m sure you have yours and you are ready to vote. I don’t want to hear any of that rubbish that my vote will not count, so what’s the point of voting?
“Oh God, please nobody should annoy me; this is 2023, with everything we’re going through, if there are still some people saying that, then really and truly I don’t know what is wrong with them.”
Falz, who urged Nigerians to vote against bad leadership, noted that the Labour Party movement has grown to become a third force within a short time.
”Forget about all those pessimists, all those cynics that are coming to you, all those irresponsible people that apparently love to suffer and want to keep this status quo, forget about those people and just focus on the goal,” he said.
He said that is clear that in 2023, the people have resolved that they will choose who will govern them.
Falz has been very vocal on national issues, especially during the EndSARS protest.
