ABUJA – The criticality of the Nigerian Political space cannot be undermined across Africa. One can clearly say Nigeria is integral in any first hand discussions across the Continent; not just in Politics – both in the Entertainments where they have vast amount of creative heads. You also cannot forlorn her strength in Sports and science. Despite the spiralling security and economic crisis, Nigeria still defines the pace in every ambits.
Amidst these many conversations about how the country has been buffeted by Crisis, they still offer themselves possibilities for what their forthcoming 2023 General Elections would bring to the pattern they want Governance to go in Nigeria.
The past several years have seen a marked increase in young people getting involved in politics and running for office in Nigeria. A couple of them have been remarkably exciting; and one of such young Nigerians is Destiny Asen.
Destiny Asen is a Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, and a Vice Presidential Candidate of the opposition Party in the country. A State situated at the Niger Deltan part of Nigeria. He is in his mid-twenty and currently occupying an office that seems to drive mass exodus of youths across board.
He said he is giving no gap. He want to drive a new stretch of Youthful appeal in the political space. He is a pragmatics and he is dexterous in his approach.
“For me, I am more concerned about driving a new narrative. As we can clearly see, the youths are getting more involved in the whole processes. It is quite obvious that Nigeria is at the crossroads. The country is looking for moments of functionality. As a Senior Special Assistant on Entertainment to HE, Dr. Ifeanyi Arthur Okowa – I am particular about the ideas that will create diverse approaches to use Entertainment as a Vehicle to drive the right messages to Nigerians.
“Between Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido – they have a combined 2.6billion impressions globally. The numbers are quite obvious and Afrobeats is the element used in transporting the Nigerian culture these days. We mustn’t ignore the strength of our crafts, and the number it can generate. I am happy that we are beginning to take charge of the possibilities and power of the Entertainment here. That is why I am going to be doing the first-of-its-kind Socio-political Musical Concert. The concert is a thrill to inspire more youths to get involved in politic, and further articulate the values of voting for Atiku/Okowa come 2023.”
He seems tenacious in his approach to muscle every bits of his office, and Mr Asen doesn’t want to give gap in galvanising support for his Principals. He said his appointment is a milestone of what Atiku Abubakar and Ifeanyi Okowa’s government would bring to bare If elected as President and Vice President in 2023.
“Africa, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and some parts of Europe, young people are rising up through the ranks of government, and making history. It gives me hope when I see the energy these young people are putting into governance. It actually transcends just politics alone. It is a combination of all elements that brings calm and development in the society. My appointments only gives me a clear picture of how the PDP intends to govern the country when the party takeover government in 2023. The pictures are clear – the former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and Dr Ifeanyi Okowa knows what they are doing. You can clearly see it in the President’s Manifesto. That document syndicated a Five-Point Agenda and
Nigeria’s Renaissance to the global economic growth opportunities. They know how to pull Nigeria out of all these problems that has bedevilled the country.”
Destiny Asen is joining that rank of Young Africans creating new dynamics in the System of things. He is not just tuned to the political areas of operations, he is Director with two emerging companies in Nigeria. He fancies the chance of using Politics as a frontier in shaping the society.
“I am a Director with Southstar Energy Group and Adrex Properties. These are emerging Companies holding their stake in both the Oil and Gas, Real Estate Industry respectively. These companies can only grow from Indigenous brands to the global fronts if there are viable business policies that can project genuine ease to doing business in Nigeria. Thus there should be mechanisms to boost our Foreign Direct Investment; and i can see all these in Atiku Abubakar’s manifesto for 2023. I have sheer hope for the future that my country will be great again.” He concluded.
