Did you miss President Goodluck Jonathan’s meeting with some 5,000 Nigerian youth in Lagos on Sunday night? Well, worry not, we got you covered.
The event tagged “Meet The President” was organized by PVC which stands for Participate, Vote, Country – a group of Nigerian young professionals, businessmen, entrepreneurs and civil society groups committed to mobilizing public action for national development and youth participation in politics.
The formal session started at 7:30pm, all the accredited participants of the meeting were given unique numbers with which they were called to ask questions.
Artistes, Oritsefemi, Seyi Shay, Mo’Cheddah, Orezi, Sean Tizzle were the performers for the night.
The compere Toyin Aimakhu put up quite an hilarious performance. One of her memorable statements of the night was “I can die for PDP” and she kept referring to GEJ as ‘Daddy’. She further cracked some jokes that got attendees laughing out loud.
