The Atedo N. A. Peterside Foundation, a non-profit organisation, has said it has partnered with select social influencers in the nation to increase youth participation in the 2023 elections.

The foundation’s President, Atedo Peterside, revealed this in a tweet on Thursday.

He wrote: “Happy to announce that ANAP Foundation has teamed up with select social influencers across the country to get Nigerian youths 18+ to register for and claim their voters’ cards well before the 2023 elections.

“Let’s act now to build the Nigeria we desire.”

Some of the social influencers include activist, Aisha Yesufu; poet, Dike Chukwumerije; and singer, Folarin Falana.

According to the foundation, it is committed to promoting good governance in Nigeria because of an identified and embarrassingly large governance deficit that is prevalent in the country.

It added that the bulk of its funding is from Nigeria.

The foundation said it hopes to develop resources and skills that will enable it to expand its activities beyond the Nigerian border as it grows.

Peterside, the founder of IBTC Bank which later merged with Stanbic Bank of South Africa is passionate about youth development and has bared his mind on youth development issues in the media.
