The presidential candidate of the Young Peoples Party for the 2019 elections, Kingsley Moghalu, has resigned his membership of the party.
Moghalu made this known on Monday via his verified Twitter handle.
He tweeted: “Without electoral reform which includes electronic voting, our democracy will remain weak. Let’s fix this before 2023. Please join our non-partisan movement tobuildnation.org. Partisan politics won’t fix this problem. To this end, I’ve resigned my membership of YPP.
“Nigeria today is approaching its moment of reckoning. We need to focus on solving our problems at their root causes. Electoral reform, voter education for an informed electorate, and constitutional restructuring are the real issues. If we can agree on these, all else can follow.
“If we fix our elections and give our democracy real meaning, our youth will have no excuses not to vote, while they spend their money to vote on @BBNaija ! Young people should lead the charge for electoral reform. With nearly 70% of Nigeria’s population, Nigeria’s future is young.”
