It goes to show U the zeal and enthusiasm amongst the youth, it’s only making up our minds as youths, if we collectively agree we could be a force to reckon with in electioneering in Nigeria politics , imagine if independent candidacy is approved it.

Maybe INEC should recommend the #BBNaija model of voting to Nigerians (₦50 or ₦100 Naira per vote per candidate whatever the case is). I think it would be interesting to see the outcome.

It doesn’t work that way.

In BBN, you can vote multiple times. In Politics, you can only vote once.

Also, note that the votes also cut across other Africa countries as well…
