“I’m Regina Daniels. Proud to be 100% Atikulated with Atiku Abubakar who is in the race to become Nigeria’s next President,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I accept my appointment as Youth Campaign Coordinator for Nollywood with humility and youthful zeal.
“Atiku is a youth-friendly leader who has assured that every 4 out of 10 of his cabinet will be a youth. The drift is brazen,” she wrote.The drift is brazen. The nation is at crossroads. The land bleeds from hunger and inertia. It’s time to steer the ship away from ca put. From Bama to Bori, Aba to Abuja, Kaura Namode to Kaduna, the sky is gloomy.Time for Nigerian Youths to join me and vote Atiku/Obi 2019 to protect our future.”
