Considering that active and peaceful participation of marginalized Nigerian youth in electoral and political processes would help them build a credible political voice, expand and occupy more political space, and develop the political influence and relationships needed to demand greater government accountability.
- I pledge to promote peaceful youth participation in 2015 election and beyond and stand against violence before, during and after elections.
- I solemnly pledge to participate in all elections peacefully and practice non-violence toward anyone whether they belong to the party I believe in or not or support the candidate I believe in or not.
- I pledge to serve as an ambassador of the “Vote Not Fight Campaign” and preach the message of peace and the use of peaceful political means for raising youth concerns and promote nonviolence in Nigeria’s electoral and political processes.
As a mark of commitment to this pledge, I will:
- Encourage other individuals, politicians and organizations to promote the “Vote Not Fight” campaign and peaceful participation in electoral and political processes in Nigeria.
