Social Media: Obi Asika Confirms Appointment With Presidency, Says There Will Be A Difference Now

Obi Asika like we rightly reported earlier has been made the
Special Assistant to the President on Social Media, Mr Obi for the first time also
confirmed this while speaking to NAN in Lagos. He says all his life, he has
worked for the progress of this country without being paid a dime, and he is
glad he now has the opportunity of working for her officially. Obi says though
the pay he will get here is quite lower to the one he makes from his personal
business, nevertheless he is glad he will be serving his country and people. He
also says the social media is about to turn around for good, by using it to get
people to  Hear him;

“With the creation of my office, which is a new office in
government, and as we begin to set up, then if we have the opportunity, then of
course we are going to setup Social Media guidelines for the Federal
“For policy, for engagement, for education, because the
first thing that has to happen is internal training to use the tools to do
external engagements.
“You don’t win over people by forcing them to do anything,
but you do have to let them know when they don’t understand.
“I have been working for Nigeria all my life without being
paid for it and I have just taken a reduction in pay to go into the government
because certainly, they can’t pay me what I make in the private sector.
“It’s a sacrifice, but it’s an honour and it’s a privilege
and I’m privileged and I am happy to represent my country and my people.
“And to represent this sector at this level for the first
time in this country in any African country. I have to commend the president, I
wasn’t lobbying for anything, I wasn’t looking for anything.

“Nigeria is bigger than any individual; Nigeria is so
important for the black race; It’s so important for Africa; we have to get it
right and I think we can and the first thing we can do is to protect the brand
Nigeria online, to promote it online.”
