“The last few months have seen massive interest in politics by Nigerians, especially young people. A lot of this energy is dissipated by engaging in all forms of attacks and counterattacks on most social media.
“The intellectual and civic losses are enormous. This leaves a dangerous situation on our hands as these young people can unwittingly play into the mechanisation of malicious politicians becoming pawns on their own chess boards.
So, there is a need to arrest this unrehearsed rage and make it into more useful energy to yield better results for the polity."

Popularly known as 'MadMo', Ogidi, who doubles as the creative director of M.A.D MO Concepts warned the older generation that Nigerian youths cannot be endlessly trapped in their game of corruption.

He said the team is bent on ensuring the first-time voters - fresh eighteen-year-olds and older young people on their first attempt at voting - will be the primary focus of the march.
