D'Banj, MOHITS and Others Present: 'OUR TIME' Youth Initiative to Encourage Youths to Vote

“OUR TIME” is a youth targeted initiative put together by United Nations Youth Ambassador D’banj. D’banj is a leading artist and entrepreneur in Nigeria.

D’banj has formally announced in a press conference on the 2nd of February, that he will be leading a group of artists in Nigeria, with the support of icons and professionals to engage Nigerian Youths in the ongoing voters registration.

While various organizations have been formed to support this cause, this is the first time in Nigerian Entertainment History, that artists have formed a coalition, to encourage the Youth of Nigeria to register to vote, vote, and have a voice in the future of Nigeria.

At a time of political unrest in the African body polity, Nigerian youths demonstrate true democracy.

OUR TIME ensures the participation of the youths in the ongoing Democratic transformation of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

It is the findings of OUR TIME that only 8% of eligible youths are registered to vote and it will do the ongoing democratic
transformation harm if there is a low turnout of the youths in the forthcoming elections.

It is the belief of OUR TIME that a strategy is devised to ensure youth participation in the ongoing voters registration and in the forthcoming elections.

OUR TIME demonstrates the vision of progress and change in the Nigerian body polity and positions the leadership as a beacon of hope and a shining light at a time when parts of Africa are in turmoil.

The Intentions of OUR TIME is to utilize a unique platform to create a campaign that will mobilize the youths to participate in the ongoing voters registration exercise via radio jingles, television ads, print media, online marketing and concerts in six geographical regions in the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Led by D’banj and Mo Hits Records, a 6 state concert is being planned which will feature top international African and Nigerian artists. Entry to the concert will be strictly by showing your voters registration card. The advantages include positioning Nigeria under the present leadership as a true democratic country, ensuring the massive participation of youths in the democratic process, initiating change through positive social interaction, worldwide media coverage of the positive changes thereby showcasing a new Nigeria and the power of the youths to decide their leadership.

D’banj, Musical Artist and UN Ambassador for the youths and foremost voice of the youths in the federal republic of Nigeria alongside leading artists (MOHITS CREW, P SQUARE, NAETO C, SASHA P, M.I., DUNCAN MIGHTY, TERRY G, TIMAYA, TIMI DAKOLO etc) embark on a series of free concerts in Six geographical regions of Nigeria in a bid to ensure youth participation in the ongoing voters registration. Entry into these concerts will require no gate fee, only your VOTERS REGISTERATION CARDS.

It has been proven that the entertainment industry is the fastest growing and most vibrant industry in Nigeria and entertainers have the ability to motivate the youths to perform their civic responsibilities.

D’banj and all supporting artists, hereby formally announce that it is OUR TIME; we must register, participate and vote.
