…Atiku TV is established to circulate social and political activities of the former Vice President
In his bid to widely circulate his social and political activities, the former Vice-President of Nigeria Atiku Abubakar has inaugurated an online television station, Atiku TV.
At the Five Star Bristol Palace Hotel, Kano, where it was launched on Wednesday, a video clip showed the former Vice-President speaking on his objective and aspiration.
Atiku, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in 2019 general elections was represented at the occasion by one of his sons among many of his political associates, mainly the PDP members.
The Atiku TV was launched by Hajiya Baraka Sani, a former Kano State Commissioner for Agriculture and Special Adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.
Hajiya Sani said Atiku TV is a novel initiative to modify the politician’s technique of reaching out to people from analogue to digital.
She elucidated that the contents for the online TV station will be developed in YouTube and disseminated on social media namely WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other cyberspace platforms.
While speaking on the grand initiative, a four-term senator representing Kano North, Bello Hayatu Gwarzo, declared a lot of politicians will soon begin to copy Atiku’s style.
“In developed countries, people sit in their homes and watch campaign plans of candidates on the television. You must not carry hundreds of vehicles and begin to move from one village to another, and from house to house,” Gwarzo added.
However, Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to Atiku on Youths and Strategy, Dr. Ahmed Adamu, has refuted claims that the station was launched to prepare the grounds for Atiku’s 2023 presidential ambition.
