Former vice president, Atiku Abubakar, has promised to continue to listen and work with Nigerian youths to ensure that they fulfil their potential.
The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party made this known when he received members of the Youths Politics and content creators.
In a series of tweets, Atiku commended the youths whom he said reminded him of how he became successful through resilience.
He wrote, “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 @youthpoliticsng 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 continues 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.”
