Abba Bichi, son of the Director General of the Department of State Services, Yusuph Magaji Bichi, was on Thursday presented with a duplex in Hilltop Estate, Apo, Abuja.
While announcing Bichi as the youth ambassador of her housing product, Group Managing Director of BSTAN Homes, Becky Olubukola, put the value of the five-bedroom building at N90 million.
Olubukola said Bichi was found worthy of the role and the gift because of his belief in the future of Nigeria and his patriotism.
“We have found him worthy of this role because he is not given to ethnic sentiments, he is a patriotic Nigerian who believes in the future of the country and he has the wisdom of an elder,” she said.
She explained that the house was one of her Home Titans Network’s products.
Reacting to the endorsement deal, Bichi thanked the group for the honour and gift, while appreciating his family and friends for their support.
“This is not for me alone but this is for the youth. Know that wherever you are, strive to achieve greatness,” he said.
Daily Trust reported that the young Bichi made the headlines when billionaire businessman, Obinna Iyiegbu, also known as Obi Cubana, was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission earlier in the month.
He had described the businessman, who was arrested over alleged money laundering, as a man of honour.
This had triggered a backlash, particularly on social media where he made the post.
