Ahead of the 2023 general election, Nigeria has witnessed the declaration of interest to contest for president by a youth.

Khadijah Okunnu-Lamidi, daughter of former Federal Works Commissioner, Femi Okunnu (SAN), today declared her interest to run for the Office of the President of Nigeria in 2023.

A renowned entrepreneur and youth development advocate, she is also the founder and chief executive officer of Slice Media Solutions

She said that she is motivated to vie for the presidency because of her desire to restore hope and make Nigeria work for all Nigerians.

The media expert noted that youths under the age of 30, who represent about 70 per cent of Nigeria’s population, have borne the most impact of bad governance, adding that the youths account for 13.9 million of the unemployment figures which stood at 21.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

She said: “I believe in the possibilities Nigeria holds; that is why I have taken this first step, not because there are no fears, but the will to bring about the Nigeria we all wish, hope, and believe we can make a reality together.”
