Part of the statement read:
"We believe the 2023 election is a game-changer in the history of our country. It's high time the youth constituency woke up. They should join the GUTS foundation to rewrite the history of this country.
"We shall be embarking on two major campaigns with different hashtags to promote this course, but most importantly, we shall be meeting the youths' constituency and many others at a concert and a walk on the streets of Abuja.
"We shall be announcing the dates for the walk and the concert soon. But we are certain that A-list artistes, political actors, and other stakeholders will converge for the two events.
"Our mission is to make sure we do what we have to do to ensure a credible election come 2023. We need to ensure our people are properly registered and obtain their Permanent Voters Card (PVC).
"Also, our target is to sensitize our youths and dissuade them against all forms of violence in order to achieve a peaceful 2023 election.
"We will continue to anchor our effort on the notion that the future of Nigeria lies in the hands of its committed youths.
"Consequently, our foundation will marry this campaign with youths empowerment as we strongly believe that election can only be peaceful when our youths smile to the poll. Our youths will understand that there is the need to vote without rancor."
