The purpose of YVC is to mobilize citizens, especially first-time voters to participate in the electoral process.
The mega concert, which is aimed at achieving this purpose, will be hosted in six states across the six geopolitical zones, starting with Lagos.
Concert goers will only be allowed entrance if they have their permanent voters card (PVC) or the temporary voters card with them.
Interested persons who do not have the PVC or the temporary voters card are advised to come early so as to be able to register for their voters’ cards at their concert’s venue.
