Q: Tell your name sir?

Hon Comrade Olubunmi Maxwell Ekungba

Q: Can you tell us about yourself and your connection with YAN?

I became a member 15months ago as a floor member in IFO local government, and I became the speaker and coordinator for 18months that tell you I was very effective and loyal to YAN leaders especially when the former state speaker Comrade Farook Olaotan who I do give a lot of respect. It was as a result of my activities within and outside the Assembly that made him to nominate me as the state speaker when he agreed to step down because of National activities and doing the seating I was chosen ahead of other nominees and was ask to act as the Acting speaker.

Q: We have been hearing about YAN, what makes it special from other NGOs??

YAN is different different from other NGO because we finance ourself and even do empowerment for the youths and we concentrate on youth both male and female. And we are parliamentary in style, That is why the are called Speakers .

Q: Tell us what you have been able to achieve during your tenure of office??

Doing my tenure I was able to register YAN interest into government in Ogun state, even the Governor and the commissioner for youth and sport now know more of YAN and was able do some empowerment for our members and non-members.

Q: You are recontesting, what did you think you have not been able to do, that this  re-election will enable you to do??

Yes, I am recontesting because I still have a lot to do and I need to complete my work . Continuity is the language. My manifestos for the upcoming election; To create youth empowerments that will involve youths across the state. The empowerment will help to reduce the rate of unemployment among the youths; We currently have one patron, I shall ensure we have more patrons across the state who will sponsor our activities; We shall organise programs to sensitize the youth on start up businesses; To key into the new local government structure in Ogun State, our administration will conduct election into all the 57 LCDAs and We would collaborate with our state patron to allow us use the state Assembly complex for seating when the law makers are on recess.

Q: What is the level of government involvement and YAN partnership with Government?

At the National yes we are very involved but at the state they start knowing more about YAN when I became the Acting Speaker some months ago. We are the only NGO that was always talking about the good work of the government in Ogun state and going against the kidnapping of good people of Ogun state.

Q: Some people may have interest in joining YAN, how will they go about it??

You don't use money to join YAN and everyone who want to join is free we had advert and when we are doing empowerment other people use that to join also.

Q: Are you convinced that you will win your re-election and what is your message for your likely opponents??

I'm the best for the post of YAN speaker/Coordinator in Ogun state even some members interested are now working for me and part of my campaign committee. So I am very sure of winning the election. The Election is scheduled for 5th of Nov. 2016, I urge all delegates across the 20 local government area to be present to cast their votes.

Thank you!
