THE current Miss Nigeria, Chidinma Aaron, on Friday urged Nigerian youths to shun every violence during the forthcoming general elections that would hold across the country.

Aaron told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that youths should not allow themselves to be used to cause any crisis during the elections.

“We must be careful not to engage in any form of violence or sponsored crisis that can lead to rigging or destruction of materials during the forthcoming elections.

“My advice to youths is that they should exercise their rights by voting wisely on Feb. 16 and March 2, instead of disrupting the exercise.

“No patriotic youth should sell their votes for any cost; it does not worth it, the regrets will outweigh the temporary gains,” the beauty queen said.

The queen then urged the youth to stand for what is right, just and peaceful, in the interest of the nation.

Aaron said that if youths should be lured into disrupting the electoral process, they would be destroying their future because they would be getting there in no distant time.

“It is better we hearken to the voice of peace and boast of a better future than shut our ears to it today and regret such actions tomorrow,” she said.

The queen told the youth that there were many candidates being presented for the elections by the various political parties and such candidates have unique manifestoes to choose from.

She also advised them to regard the days of the elections as days to display true patriotism by coming out en masse to cast their votes for candidates of their choices.

“Do not plunge our great country backward by selling your votes, by engaging in election violence or assisting in any form of violence,” she said.

NAN reports that the 25-year-old queen took over from Mildred Ehiguese, the 41st queen, who won the 2017 edition.
