Some Nigerian celebrities have been featured in a campaign song for the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

The celebrities are Zack Orji, Eniola Badmus, Zule Zuu, Konga, Bimbo Akintola and Danfo Drivers.

With less than 33 days to the presidential elections on February 25, most Nigerian celebrities have pitched their tents with the various political parties.

According to the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, the 2023 general election is an election for the young people in Nigeria.

Giving a breakdown of voter registration and collection of Permanent Voter Cards in Nigeria at his address at Chatham House, London, Yakubu said records on the ground showed that the election would be dominated by the Nigerian youth.

Yakubu, who said he was encouraged by the turn-out of registered voters to collect their PVCs, said over 600,000 eligible voters collected their PVCs in Lagos alone within the last one month.

The INEC boss stated that there are currently 93.4 million registered voters in Nigeria out of which 37 million, that is 39 percent, are young people between the ages of 18 and 34.
