In a bid to better further and promote his social and political activities, a former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has launched a new television station, Atiku TV.
The launch of the digital medium for the former vice president's campaign was carried out in Kano state on Wednesday, August 12, The Nation reports.
Speaking on behalf of Atiku during the grand event, Hajiya Baraka Sani, a former commissioner for agriculture in the state, said the station is a new approach that "will change Atiku’s mode of reaching out to people from analogue to digital, henceforth."
Sani explained that contents for the Atiku TV will be developed into YouTube videos and circulated via WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other online media.

She said: “In developed countries, people sit in their homes and watch campaign plans of candidates on the television; you must not carry hundreds of vehicles and begin to move from one village to another, and from house to house.
“The digital campaign sets the records of your campaign promises straight, so that people can hold you responsible when you fail to deliver on your promises."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that a support group of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday, August 9, came hard on Atiku over what it called fake news.
The group also slammed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and accused the political organisation of sponsoring attacks against the vice president, Yemi Osinbajo.
The reaction of the APC group, Legit.ng learnt, was in reaction to the call by Timi Frank, an acclaimed political activist, on President Muhammadu Buhari to probe Osinbajo for allegedly withdrawing N10 billion from the Treasury Single Account (TSA).
Frank had also challenged the vice president to defend himself against some other allegations.
In reaction, however, the APC group accused Atiku and the PDP of sponsoring alleged fake news against Osinbajo.
