Former President of the Senate, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, has called on young Nigerians across the country to take advantage of the ongoing continuous voters’ registration exercise embarked on by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In a video posted on all his social media handles (@bukolasaraki), Saraki said with 30 million unregistered voters, young Nigerians had the power to choose their leaders at all levels.
“In 2019, 84 million Nigerians registered to vote. 51 percent were below 35 years old. However, on election day, only 29 million voters came out.
“With about 30 million unregistered young voters, clearly, the power is firmly in your hands,” Saraki said.
He added that young Nigerian’s determination to make the country work for them has echoed across the world, while also emphasizing that if they register to vote, they can decide the future of the country.

Grab Man United Job If Contacted, Domenech Tells Zidane
Former France coach Raymond Domenech has urged Zinedine Zidane to accept the chance of managing Manchester United if the opportunity is open.
Domenech made this known in an interview with L’Equipe TV, where he said that the former Real Madrid coach has the capability to turn around the fortune of the Red Devils.
Recall that on Tuesday, Cristiano Ronaldo has reportedly approached Manchester United chiefs and recommended the club replace manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with Zinedine Zidane.
Pressure has mounted on Solskjaer following Manchester United’s 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester City over the weekend.
Although reports have indicated that Zidane has no interest in a move to the Premier League, Domenech is urging the former Real Madrid to have a rethink.
“What job is he made for when he’s been a multiple Champions League with Real Madrid? What’s left? [Manchester] City, United, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich? There’s five or six clubs. After that, if he takes another club, they’re a step down for him, for someone of his level.
“There comes a point when you can’t let that possibility slip. He’s also got, with [Cristiano] Ronaldo, a direct relay, a translator from Spanish to English.
“He’ll also get away from people who say he only achieved what he did because it was Real Madrid because he knew the players and he’ll prove he’s really a top manager. That’s why I tell him: go for it. Or stay in your comfort, but I don’t think that’s his desire.”
