The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Mahmood Yakubu, has predicted that Nigerian youth, with their population, could determine the outcome of the 2019 general elections.

Speaking during a courtesy visit to the management of Bayero University, Kano (BUK), which hosted the INEC Youth Votes Count Campus Outreach Initiative, Mr. Yakubu revealed that Nigerian youth currently constitute a sizeable percentage of the total population of registered voters that could be a game changer in the 2019 polls.

He averred that since the commencement of the CVR exercise in April 2017, the commission has registered close to 11 million Nigerians.

Responding, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, Mohammed Bello, thank INEC for choosing their university for the zonal engagement event and assure that they will do whatever they can to give him support.
