Many of us are unhappy with the failings of our country, yet we feel at a loss as to how to be part of the solution.
Biola Williams of Sleeves Up has an answer. “From the 15th to 29th January, we young Nigerians hold our future in our hands. The question is, what are we going to do with it? It’s time to roll up our sleeves and do something! It’s time to register to vote!” she says.
What is Sleeves Up? It’s a non-governmental, non-profit and non-partisan organisation that presents a platform for the millions of young Nigerians across the nation and beyond that are tired of just “talking the talk”, who are now ready to “walk the walk”.
“This platform creates an opportunity for us to come together, go beyond the challenges of the nation, and step into the level of proffering solutions. We are committed to making changes driven by the simple notion that youth have the capacity to affect the state of affairs in this country, if they stop the talking and start the doing,” Biola says.
