2baba named as National Youth Council of Nigeria ambassador

Innocent Idibia, otherwise known as 2baba, who embarked on a two-day campaign in Edo State for his ‘VOTE NOT FIGHT’ initiative, was named as Youth Ambassador for the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN), on Friday.

The music star was issued his certificate of conferment during the International Youth Day celebration, which took place at the Samuel Ogebemudia Stadium in the state.

Prior to his conferment, 2Baba had spearheaded a VNF campaign session which held at the Youth Centre in Benin.

He spent the day sensitising the youth on the need to remain peaceful during and after the forthcoming electoral process.

2Baba spoke at length to the youth on the need to refuse being used by politicians and enjoined the gubernatorial candidates who were present at the session not to adopt a do-or- die mentality during the elections.

His speech received an applause from the audience after which he made both candidates and youth sign the VNF pledge form and make public statements to show their commitment to the VNF campaign.

The songster also embarked on a media tour to propagate the message of non-violence during elections.
