Nigerian youths have come together on social media to establish a new political party called the Youth Democratic Party of Nigeria.
The declaration of their intention is coming in the wake of recent protests geared towards ending police brutality in the country.
A recent visit to Twitter this morning showed that the hashtag #YouthDemocraticParty is currently trending on the microblogging platform and is quickly accelerating to the top.
According to tweets by Nigerian youths, they want a complete overhaul 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 fundraiser be created so that youths would collectively donate to enable them to register the party and also support their chosen candidates.
