Leadership is not by age or title. It is mindset. A country like Nigeria needs leaders with the right mindset irrespective of the age or financial background.
We have all been clamouring for this type of leadership in Nigeria. Leadership that gives equal opportunity to everyone. Leadership that gives a room for the youths. If the youths are the pillar of the nation, why not involve them in the political affairs of the nation. Instead of living in the fantasy of that adage.
Oyo State Governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde has finally set an example for other political leaders. He has shown that he is in the business of giving young people a chance to be part of his leadership by nominating a 27-year-old political candidate for the position of Commissioner in Oyo State, Nigeria.
The visionary Leader has set the record straight that it’s time for youths to start taking their place. It’s time for them to stand up for their rights and show they have what it takes to be part of the leadership evolution.
Oyo State governor, Engineer Seyi Makinde nominated, Asiwaju Seun Fakorede, a 27-year-old Engineering graduate from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, as one of the three commissioner nominees for screening by the state House of Assembly.
Let’s hope he shows he’s got what it takes to sit and dine with the intellects. Of course, he has it in him. Let’s have a look into his profile and see why the governor wants him to be part of his cabinet.
Who is Asiwaju Seun Fakorede?
Fakorede, who hails from Idere area of Ibarapa Central local government, bagged a Civil Engineering degree from Obafemi Awolowo in 2016 and currently runs an entrepreneur and consultancy outfit, and a non-profit outfit, Home Advantage Africa (HAA). HAA is devoted to promoting local dominance and global stardom in Africa through digital storytelling and other projects of similar ilk.
This is a welcome development for everyone connected to Ibadan, Nigeria and Africa at large. We hope this air positivity will last for years to come. And also we hope this is the beginning of something great from the era of ”Omititun”.
Congrats to the people of Oyo state for the new development and the type of leadership in charge of power.
Thank you, Engineer Seyi Makinde for leading by example. You promised a different type of government, and we are already feeling the fresh air in Oyo state.
Indeed, it is ”Omititun”.
