Nigerian singer-songwriter Charles Chukwuemika Oputa, better known as Charlie Boy, has called on youth across the country to protect their votes in their polling units during the 2023 general election.
Oputa made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the sidelines of the “YellOut 4 Good Governance in Nigeria” event on Friday in Abuja.
He said he was very happy and proud of the country’s youth.
I told them that the salvation of any country is in the hands of exceptional people. These people are great Nigerian youth.
“They already know their rights, but my call to them is that they must stand up and defend those rights at the polls.
“However, the opposition wants to do it, and I know the boys are willing to give them back what they got. I have no chills in that area. All I can do is wish them well and pray for their safety.”
“Nigeria has become dangerous to my will, and because of years of dissension and inaction, there are some sacrifices that need to be made and we will make those sacrifices,” Obata said.
On the killing of the Labor leader in Kaduna, Charlie Boy said the old regime believed they could still play by their own rules of the game.
According to the 72-year-old actor and TV presenter in Port Harcourt, the old regime is unaware of the revolution that is now happening before their eyes, adding that they are in denial.
