Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has appointed Olamilekan Moshood Agbelesebioba, popularly known as LAYCON, winner of Big Brother Naija, as the Youth Ambassador of the State.
The governor disclosed this on Tuesday while playing host to Laycon in his Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta, 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.
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.
“You have also demonstrated with the way you carried out your assigned tasks in the House with comportment; intellectual responses to questions and; your spirit of fair-play, that your academic achievement at the University of Lagos was earned. This has also shown that our Universities can and still produce graduates that are found worthy in character and good learning,” he said.
The governor also announced a gift of three bedroom bungalow and N5million for him.
