Ogun state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun (MFR), has appointed big brother Naija 2020 winner, Laycon, as the Youth Ambassador of Ogun State and Member of Ogun State Executive Council, effective immediately.
The singer was received by a mammoth crowd today at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, Ogun State. The governor also announced a gift of three bedroom bungalow and N5million for him.
He made the announcement in Abeokuta, the state capital, when he played host to Laycon at the executive chamber of the governor office in the State capital.
“Once again, I congratulate you and on this note, I hereby appoint you as YOUTH AMBASSADOR OF OGUN STATE. I look forward to working with you to be a model of good character, excellence, good virtues, calmness, integrity that are general attributes of Ogun State, and in fact, your homestead, Odeda.
“We believe that you will help inspire our teeming youths to channel their energies towards positive engagements and shun vices such as robbery, drug abuse, cultism, advanced fee fraud, cybercrimes and kidnapping amongst other negative tendencies,” the governor announced.
While congratulating Agbeleshe who is a native of Odeda local government area of the state, the governor promised that an entertainment village is being contemplated to nurture budding talents in the state and beyond.
“On behalf of the Government and good people of Ogun State, I join your fans across the world to welcome you to your Home State.
“I also want to congratulate you on your success after 71 days as a housemate at the Year 2020 Big Brother Naija, Lockdown Edition,” the governor said.
The governor said young Nigerians can learn from Laycon’s demeanor while in the Big Brother Naija House based on how he related well with the other 19 housemates from different backgrounds.
He also said the celebration of Laycon’s personality is beyond the entertainment that the House provided, but “what you represent: a rare combination of prodigious intellect, academic excellence, multi-faceted talents, character, and resilience.”
