🇳🇬 Nigeria Decides 2019: Italian MEP from far right League 2 days ago   51:34

Al Jazeera English
Millions of people across Nigeria are due to elect the country's next president and members of the National Assembly. More than 70 politicians declared their candidacies for the presidency during the early days of election season but the contest has effectively boiled down to one between Muhammadu Buhari and Atiku Abubakar, two septuagenarians who have loomed large over the political scene for years.

One of their biggest challenges is to show they are each mindful of the concerns of young people. The estimated median age of the population is 18.3 years old, making Nigeria one of the youngest countries in the world. Young Nigerians are concerned about issues as varied as healthcare, home and family life, education and employment, but a generation gap between the general population and those in the top echelons of power has many wondering if Nigeria will see dramatic change.

In the first of two special extended shows on Nigeria's election, we'll hear the thoughts of young politicians, activists and voters and ask them what is needed to revitalise governance for the benefit of an ever-more youthful country.

1st of all, the on going election should be realistic,or reliable without fraud,or any manipulation by both parties ;then , the one who wins the election will be tested by its promises-- this way we can exercise democracy...

The World of Sam
The most intelligent person in this discussion is Samson Itodo. Not only does he present well articulated and logical points, he is very cultured and mannered in the way he is engaging in the discussions. He sounds like a true leader.

The next person is Aisha. Not closely as great as Samson, but she makes her simple points, with proper manners.

I have always read Omoyele's campaign points. Most notably, the unrealistic point of raising minimum age to 100K. I'm listening to him for the first time, and he sounds just like his campaign points. Omoyele doesn't have the qualities I want in a leader. First of all, he keeps on rambling and couldn't articulate his points and speak clearly. But the worst aspect has to be his lack of manners when discussing. He keeps on interrupting other people, and also wouldn't stop talking until he is shut out.

That Zainab lady that is running for office sounds lost in the mix. Sounding like a secondary school girl that is representing her school in a debate. She just came there to pour out what seems rehearsed and typically not related to the questions asked. smh.

There is urgent need for Nigerian youth to form coalition group. At this time , if we must take over the government, it must come through a movement and we have to start that now.

The problems in the world comes from this religions: Christianity, Islam , Judaism, and Hindu with its terrible caste system, and the world's problems are also from Capitalism and Western Democracy. All these Institutions and religions are on their way out. These are the last hours of world rule by the Roman empire, Jews, and Arabs. So-called Blacks/African Americans; who are really the descendants of the ancient Phoenicians, are realizing that they are really ASIATIC in origin and they have literally JUST filed an International-level legal petition to evoke the RIGHT OF RETURN LAW; since THEY are the RIGHTEOUS heirs of the Levant (ancient Phoenicia). If ANY nation should evoke Right of Return it is the Phoenicians; whose Ancestors are the original people of the Levant. What is now called Jerusalem rightfully belongs to the Phoenicians; descendants of slaves. When the Phoenicians; who are called black people, get their Mediterranean lands back it will change the world order to opposite of the way it is now. It will bring balance back to Earth. No more Institutionalized racism or any other oppression. Lasting peace on Earth. We will be happy, balanced, and whole. Straightening out the geo-political so that the Phoenicians are back in their lands changes EVERYTHING.

I have observed that apathy to voting and elections in Nigeria is one of the most crucial issues to worry about. I'm so surprised and utterly disappointed on the high level of apathy by millions of Nigeria especially the youths who have simply given up on the election process because they believe their votes will not count, will not have any effect or the simply say the outcome ave been decided before elections in Nigeria and therefore reduces the exercise to a real joke. The saddest aspect of this is that most of these people who are not voting are the very ones who are negatively affected by the horrible system and thereby feel deeply that there is a need for a change of the way the country is being run by the gang of rogue retired military officers and their cronies. In fact, if 70% of these folks dare to vote, they will help bring about the desperately needed change.

Pdp and APC are the same, we can’t continue doing same thing yet expecting a different result, let’s vote Omoyele Sowore, he’s our only alternative, if he doesn’t deliver as planned, in 2023 we’ll take the mantle off him and try someone else, don’t sit at home hoping your voice on social media would do the the job, vote wisely, vote Nigeria. Thank you.

AAC voters, it's time we all revisit or re-communicate with those we think should vote for AAC and see how we can refresh this right decision in their hearts...... ACC of Omoleye Sowore in the trusted political party , as the PDP and APC had failed and betrayed our trust.

Good on you ALJAZEERA . You gave a good lesson to Saud family of Saudi Arabia that they cant silent the media outlets like your self n they tried to get Qatar to bow down to them back fired on them ... since Aamir Qatar gave military bases to the us army aka Saudi royal family's masters Qatar is 100 times safer then Saudi Arabia... good on you Amir Qatar on helping us army with the expense of there bases in access of a billion dollars... that guaranteed a good safety insurance for ever ... much better deal then becoming a slave to the slaves aka Saudi Arabia's royal family .. shame on you Saud family especially MBS for trying to bring down ALjazeera n kingdom of Qatar
