The winner of the 2020 BBNaija Season 5 reality TV show Laycon Agbeleshe has been appointed the youth ambassador of Ogun State by the Executive Governor of Ogun State, Mr Dapo Abiodun.
Laycon, 26, also received a gift of a 3-bedroom bungalow plus N5 million cash from the governor.
Governor Dapo Abiodun announced Laycon’s youth ambassador appointment and the gifts at a recent ceremony where he hosted the 26-year-old rapper. The governor hosted BBNaija Laycon at the executive chamber of the governor’s office in Abeokuta.
The governor said during the event:
“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.”
Laycon who was born and raised in Lagos is actually a native of Odeda Local Government Area of Ogun State.
Praising Laycon, the governor said the reality TV star “demonstrated the Omoluabi component which is the primary ingredient of an Ogun State-born Nigerian.”
Governor Abiodun added:
“Despite all the odds, temptations, and provocations in the House, I am proud that you came out unscathed and uninvolved in any scandal or immoral act. 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.”
