Ogun: Dapo Abiodun appoints Laycon youth ambassador, gifts him N5m

OGUN State Governor Dapo Abiodun on Tuesday appointed the winner of the Big Brother Naija reality show, Laycon as a youth ambassador.

Laycon, born Olamilekan Agbelesebioba was also gifted N5 million and a three-bedroom bungalow.

Mr Abiodun made the announcement when he played host to Laycon in his office in Abeokuta.

He expressed hope that Laycon’s good character, excellence, good virtues, calmness and integrity would serve as a model to youths in the state.

“It is hoped 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,” he said.

The governor described Laycon’s conduct in the house as a demonstration of the ‘Omoluabi’ virtue which he said was the primary ingredient of an average Ogun indigene.

Abiodun observed that in spite all the odds, temptations and provocations, Laycon was able to come out unscathed and uninvolved in any scandal or immoral act.

He said: “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 through which your academic achievement at the University of Lagos was earned.

“This has also shown that our universities can and still produce graduates who are found worthy in both character and learning.”

According to him, plans are underway to build what he called an entertainment village for film makers, artists and musicians, where their skills could be nurtured with added value for the socio-economic development of the state.
