Atiku meets with ex-BBNaija housmates ahead of 2023
Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has met with some ex-BBNaija housemates.
Ikechukwu ‘Cross’ Okonkwo, Bright ‘Brighto’ Osemudiame, and Chukwuemeka ‘Frodd’ Okoye were among the reality television stars.
The group included successful content creators, entrepreneurs, and social media stars, according to photos and videos posted on Atiku’s Twitter account on Sunday.
The former vice president also emphasised his vision for youth and his country’s “progressive” ideas.
Atiku promised to make continued listening, engaging, and working with more of Nigeria’s superpower, the youths to witness their optimum potential, an “absolute priority”.
I had the pleasure of kicking off Friday in the company of some of Nigeria’s successful content creators, entrepreneurs and social media stars within the @youthsinpoliticsng coalition.”
As a man who came from nothing and persevered in learning and achieving against all odds, these young powerhouses remind me of myself and our nation’s exceptional resilience to succeed.
We are now at a time where ideation, innovation, creativity and technology continue to offer a world of opportunities for the younger generation of Nigerians. Many of whom have utilised these spaces to export some of the country’s greatest success stories and reposition our image globally through the arts, culture and brilliant entertainment.
Now imagine if we, as one Nigeria, worked to provide the enabling environment to catapult our younger generations’ talents further. How much further would we fly?
I will make it my absolute priority to continue listening, engaging and working with more of Nigeria’s superpower, our youth, to witness their optimum potential.
You are the pride of our future, and as a father of our nation, I am committed to your success. I look forward to merging wisdom and youth excellence to bring tangible solutions and protection to us all. As one, we will get it done.
