•PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, Sunday unveiled a national competition plan that would allow Nigerians scrutinize his policy document.

Atiku unveiled his policy document on November 19, in a live broadcast on Facebook, saying, “I want these policies to be our policies – yours and mine. I want to hear your ideas to get Nigeria working again.  So I will give the opportunity to anyone in Nigeria to have their say on national television.”

The competition, tagged, “Voice of the People Competition” kicked off today and would end on December 24, 2018.

The Atiku Presidential Campaign says that “Contributors are to state their names and location and one winner will be announced from each of all the six geo-political zones of Nigeria who will have the opportunity to have their recording played in a national telecast between January 1 to 6, 2019.

“Any Nigeria can enter the competition by simply recording a one minute video and posting it on their respective Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account by 24th December. Competitors are requested to add to their post the hashtag, #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain and the state where they reside. Interested individuals can post a video selfie or any other form of video – the only limit is your imagination.

“The judging panel, led by Senator Ben Murray Bruce, will review the entries and select one winner from each geo-political zone.  One key criterion for the winners will be the number of engagements their entry generates.

“The judging criteria will be based on the following: the originality of the idea to help Get Nigeria Working Again and how feasible it would be to implement; the clarity of how the idea is communicated; the creativity of the video and the number of engagements in social media the video has generated,” they said.
