The senior special assistant on New Media to the Governor of Kebbi state, Aisha Augie-Kuta has called on Nigerians to get involved in political process to make government more accountable.
Augie-Kuta who is an award winning photographer, filmmaker and a media consultant turned politician made this call while addressing newsmen in Abuja.
She stressed that the more Nigerians ask questions the more things will improve positively in the nation.
Augie-Kuta said such questions will promote accountability and implementation of government policies and projects.
She added that it is high time Nigerian women youths against all odds participate actively in politics and be elected into public offices to reposition the country and Africa continent for rapid development.
Augie-Kuta, however, called on women and youths not to lag behind in politics. She charged them to get involved in politics in the grassroots level.
According to her, “You need to get involved in politics even though you are not running for any public office.
“As Nigerians, you have to be aware that government does not operate in oblivion or from the mars, their policies affect us daily, hence we need to ask questions to spur them to get it right.
“The more you ask question the more things improve positively.”
Augie-Kuta who recently contested for the seat of House of Representatives primaries of Argungu-Augie Federal constituency in Kebbi state under the platform of All Progressive Congress (APC) also called on educated Nigerians and Nigerians in diaspora to ensure that Nigeria becomes a country of pride amongst comity of nations.
She averred that when Nigerians get involved in country’s development, they will not wait for politicians to decide who to vote during elections.
“So instead of fighting vainly over the correct interpretation of the government which has done better to bring happiness and fulfillment to the people, we should get involved.
“We can resolve our differences and live in peace simply by conceding that these governments needs us and therefore a new political order which will drive the pursuit of peace and happiness be instituted by the most bruised group of the society the women and youths,” she said.
She added that her message for Nigerian women and youths was to be engaged in politics in order to change the situation of the country positively.
