Nigeria’s former VP says Black Panther is a good movie after watching with his children

Atiku also noted that he watched the movie in company of his children and some of their friends and enjoyed the 2hr 15mins long movie.

Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has endorsed Marvel’s current superhero, Black Panther saying it’s a good movie.

Atiku in a tweet on Sunday, March 4, 2018, said the movie, which is centered on a fictional city known as Wakanda, is a good movie while encouraging Nigerians to troop out and watch the movie.

"I saw #BlackPanther with my children and some of their friends yesterday. It is a very good movie and I encourage everyone to go and see it," Atiku tweeted.

Interestingly, Atiku joins top political figures like Michelle Obama, former first lady of the United States of America, to endorse the Marvel’s movie.

The former VP is currently eyeing President Muhammadu Buhari’s job after defecting from the ruling party, All Progressive Congress to the opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party.

To this end, Atiku has tried to woo the hearts of Nigerian youths by leaning to the most current and viral activity appealing to the youths around the world.
