Nigerian youths on social media, as part of the #EndSARS campaign, have declared interest to form their own political party — the Youth Democratic Party of Nigeria (YDP).
The declaration of their intention is coming on the heels of ongoing protests geared towards ending police brutality in the country.
A visit to popular social media platform, Twitter, this morning showed that the hashtag #YouthDemocraticParty is currently trending on the micro blogging platform and is quickly accelerating to the top.
According to tweets by some Nigerian youths, they want a complete mend of the system that has failed since independence.
Many are of the opinion that the older generation has ruled and failed for too long a time and it is time for the younger generation to take over the system.
On funding, a Twitter user suggested that an online crowdfunding be created so that youths would collectively donate to enable them register the party and also support their chosen representatives.
