2023 Polls: Girls Get Equal, Activista Nigeria Call For Investigation Into Causes Of Electoral Violence

A social movement of girl child advocates working to ensure that Nigerian girls get equal, Girls Get Equal & Activista Nigeria have condemned every form of electoral violence across the nation in the 2023 General Elections.

In a statement by signed by the National Coordinator, Girls Get Equal Nigeria Adokaji Odela noted that the youths have been denied good governance since the country returned to civil rule in 1999.

The Girls Get Equal and Activista are groups of girls and boys with the aim of promoting and advocating for the rights of girls and young people in Nigeria.

”And now more than ever before, we are ready to vote for a better Nigeria in the 2023 elections.”

According to Odela, ”However, we are worried about the multiple acts of violence on women, girls, and young people
including a terrorist attack in Borno state and the stabbing of Mrs. Efidi Bina Jennifer and other citizens in Lagos on Saturday.”

”As a group of resilient Nigerians, we stand in solidarity with Efidi Bina Jennifer, a Nigerian citizen who demonstrated her commitment to demand for a better Nigeria against all odds through the ballot.’

She noted that Efidi Bina Jennifer was reportedly stabbed by political miscreants in Surulere local government area of Lagos state during the presidential and senatorial elections.

”Despite the sad situation, she was undeterred and went ahead to exercise her voting right after receiving first aid treatment.”

According to her,” We dare to stand for justice now, for justice delayed is justice denied. The cost of being Nigerian cannot and should not be paid with our lives.

The group calls for an investigation into the causes of electoral violence in Surulere and every other part of the nation.

”Sanction and prosecute all politicians and their supporters who incite violence.”’We demand justice and compensation for Efidi Bina Jennifer, and social protection for young people, especially women, and girls.

”Finally, we wish to reiterate our undeterred and indefatigable commitment to striving for a greater future Nigeria holds for us, and generations yet unborn.” ”So, no political ambition should cost the safety and security of any citizen,” she added.
