Northern Nigeria’s foremost tertiary institution, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) played host to the leading youth centric event on Nigerian campuses, Cliqfest powered by EasyCliq. Cliqfest is as an engagement platform by Etisalat Nigeria for Nigerian youth.
The two-day event was received with excitement by the University community as Etisalat further strengthened its bond with them by offering the Cliqfest Edutainment package which is a fusion of motivational talks, sports, concert and raffle draws.
The peak of the two days was the emergence of 200 level student of Business Administration, Blessing Josiah as the winner of an i10 Hyundai Car, thanks to her participation in a raffle draw.
An excited Blessing couldn’t contain her emotions as she was presented the car keys. “I just wanted to win a phone or maybe a laptop, but I was blown away when my name was called as the winner of the car. I will always remain grateful to Etisalat,” she said.
Motivational speaker and life coach, Niyi Adesanya, challenged students of this great institution to stay motivated, study and work hard in order to fulfil their potentials on the first day of the two-part programme. This advice was in line with the 2016 theme for Cliqfest “Activate your Dreams”.
Cliqfest has been to over 70 schools across Nigeria since it was launched six years ago and was making a second stop at ABU after a debut in 2014.
