Arise & Secure Your Vote: Gift Chikere and Her 15 Advocates Charge Nigerian Youth

Can art be a tool for influencing voting culture for better governance among youth? Gift Chikere (aka TheGift), a creative artiste and alumnus of the Street Project Foundation, is exploring poetry, music, and writing to inspire young Nigerians to participate actively in governance.
