Karen’s Victory Shows Resilience of Youths – Minister

The Minister of Youth Development, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, has called on Nigerian youths to be selfless, enterprising and determined in whatever they are doing. He gave the advice yesterday in Abuja while congratulating Miss Karen Igho for emerging the joint winner of the Big Brother Africa show sponsored by South African cable channel MNet/DSTV.

Nigeria’s Karen and Zimbabwe’s Wendell got the $200,000 (N30 million) prize each after emerging as joint winners of the reality show which lasted 91 days and featured 26 contestants from across Africa. Karen however had more votes than Wendell.

While praising the winner for making Nigeria proud, Abdullahi stated that her selflessness, enterprise, creativity and team spirit in the Big Brother House were not surprising as these are common attributes of the Nigerian youth.

He further explained that Karen’s story of overcoming great barriers on the road to success and fame resonate with many young Nigerians who in spite of great odds achieve great triumphs.

He noted that “the fact that Karen is the third Nigerian to win the Big Brother prize in a row also attests to the resilience of Nigerian youth and their popularity among their peers in Africa. Karen’s victory will no doubt inspire many young Nigerians to pursue their dreams, and not to give up in the face of adversity.”
