The Nigerian Human Rights Writers Association, HURIWA, has accused young Nigerians of engaging in political activities ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Speaking to Newslodge about the year-long memorial to the Lekki incident where many young people protesting bad governance were allegedly killed by the Nigerian army, the group’s national coordinator, Emmanuel Onwubiko said that the best way to end the marginalization of the youth was to get involved in politics and run for elective office.

After year-long commemorative protests being organized by activists in some parts of the country, the rights group urged young people to avoid violence, but they should use other methods to register their complaints.

According to HURIWA, young people need to be academically empowered in an attempt to resolve the alleged violation of human rights by security agents.

He said: “Young Nigerians must stay out of trouble, avoid violence, but they must speak up for their fundamental human rights as active citizens of Nigeria.

“We urge young people not to get involved in crimes, but to adopt in a meaningful way the pursuit of knowledge, education and capacity development and expose all acts of human rights violations unleashed against citizens by the officials in charge. to enforce the law and demand redress.

“Young people should mobilize to join forces in political fields to take power democratically in 2023.”
