Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has met with some former housemates of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show.
The reality TV stars include Ikechukwu ‘Cross’ Okonkwo, Bright ‘Brighto’ Osemudiame, and Chukwuemeka ‘Frodd’ Okoye.
In a post shared on his Instagram page on Sunday, Atiku said the group consisted of “successful content creators, entrepreneurs, and social media stars.”
The former vice-president also highlighted his vision for the youth and the “progressive” ideas he has for the country.
Atiku promised to make “absolute priority to continue listening, engaging and working with more of Nigeria’s superpower, our youth, to witness their optimum potential.”
“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,” he wrote.
“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.”
In June, Cross was on the receiving end of a heated Twitter backlash after he endorsed Atiku for the 2023 presidency.
