CITIZENS COMPASS– NIGERIAN comedian and actor, Debo Adedayo popularly known as Mr Macaroni has advised Nigerian youths to think twice and reflect on the pains and sadness they went through during the EndSARS protests of October 2020, before casting their votes in 2023.
This was contained in his verified Twitter post on Monday.
He said the experience should inform youths to vote for candidates, stressing that Nigerian people have suffered enough.
He said, “Dear Nigerian Youth, when that time comes to cast your vote, remember the pain and sadness from October 2020, remember the lack of an enabling environment for you to succeed as a citizen of Nigeria. By then, No one will need to tell you who to vote for!!! Vote Wisely!
“Nigerians have suffered enough!! We have a chance to change this country for good by voting in competent and credible leaders!! The time is now!! May our labour never be in vain.
“That is your business!!! I have been saying it since October 2020 that I will never cast a vote for APC or PDP!! I can’t speak for others but I can speak for myself and that is final!! Do with this information whatever you wish to do with it,” Mr Macaroni said
Earlier on Sunday, the artist said he would vote for neither the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) nor the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The EndSARS is a two-week nationwide peaceful demonstration embarked by youths in October calling for the ban of a defunct police unit, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) which was notorious for harassing, extorting and killing innocent Nigerians.
