Aliyu Atiku, son of Nigeria’s former vice-president is still a work in progress, no doubt. But he’s clearly on the road to glory. At a very young age, he’s already in the spotlight – stepping into leadership role and offering a glimpse of greatness. It’s really no shock that Aliyu is following in his father’s footsteps. The apple they say doesn’t fall far from the tree.
The younger Atiku has shown leadership and integrity in his role as Turakin Adamawa. In spite of his young age, he has been able to handle his position with class and great charisma. He has carried out his responsibilities over the last three years without any blemish. He’s a reminder that, indeed, young people can excel in leadership.
No doubt, the young man is stepping into his father’s shoes effortlessly. And he’s doing it in style, too. Known for his warm personality, Aliyu is one of Nigeria’s influential young people under the age of forty. Also, since his emergence as Turakin Adamawa, the dashing young man’s profile has been on a steady rise. Though, not the one to brag but his sphere of influence cannot be overemphasized. And there are speculations that he might be warming up for a political adventure in 2023.
In his Eid Mubarak message of hope, he urged the people to be selfless. He said ” And for me, the best way to live now is to follow the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). We should try to live our lives not just for ourselves but for others as well.”
He continued “On this note, I wish you all happy and memorable moments with your families. And while you are at that, please remember those who do not have the luxury to celebrate with their own families. Donate to the needy. Feed the homeless. Never underestimate what your ‘little’ contribution can make in the lives of others. Barka Da Sallah.” Turakin Adamawa wrote.
Aliyu, a graduate of The American University of Nigeria (AUN) in Yola, Adamawa state recently bagged a Masters of Science in International Business.
