The 2019 general election have been concluded, with preparations for inauguration of elected persons underway.
But the National Orientation Agency ( NOA) wants Nigerians to be actively involved in issues of governance from now.
The result of the 2019 elections came with some shock announcement of winners and losers across the country.
This exemplifies the power of the electorate in the emergence of leaders that will govern them.
At a workshop organised by the national orientation agency, the participants said these anomalies could have been avoided, if Nigerians had been properly educated on their rights and duties before the elections. They seek correction of this negative trend.
The active participation of youths and women before, during and after the polls, was emphasized at the workshop.
With a population of 180 million Nigerians, governance is definitely a serious business.
After a vigorous campaign to woo voters, it is time to transfer that energy into delivering dividends of democracy to the people.
