The event tagged ‘Make A Difference Against Corruption Today (MADACT) was organized by Youth Alive Foundation in conjunction with UKAID. The event which was put together to sensitize youths against bribery and corruption was a huge success as over 10,000 youths came to support the fight against corruption and bribery in Nigeria.
I Go Dye, who has always used his platform to advocate for youthful leadership and good governance, used the opportunity to implore youths to participate in the forthcoming election and urged them to use their PVCs, vote for betterment of Nigeria. He said they should not allow themselves to be used for political thuggery, ballot snatching, vote buying, and above all, to vote for a candidate that will improve the living standard of Nigerians.
The visionary comedian, who is also United Nations Global Goals Ambassador told the crowd that the youths have the greater responsibility to save the nation, to make it better for the next generation.
In his words: “Our great-grandparents sacrificed for independence while our fathers sacrificed for democracy that ended military rule, it is now our turn to make our votes count. Stop political recycling, stop those who looted the treasury of this country for their personal use, we must speak against corruption and bribery, it is the only way we can save this nation.
The MADACT tour with I Go Dye held again in Lagos on November 10, and will make a stop in Portharcourt on November 17 before getting to other parts of Nigeria.
