Ogun Youth commends Governor Abiodun over Suspension of Aide, urges Youths to be good Ambassadors

The youth leadership of Ogun State has applauded Governor Dapo Abiodun on the immediate suspension of his Senior Special Assistant, Abidemi Rufai nicknamed Sandy Tang, over his involvement in an unemployment benefit fraud in United States.

Addressing a group of concerned Youths at Ogun Youth House today May 19, 2021, on the abashing development to the repute of Ogun State government, the State Secretary of the Youth Council, Com. Akolawole Shoremi commended the Governor's intolerance for acts of malpractice, misappropriation, and financial impropriety.  

Lamenting the mad rush for wealth among Nigerian youths, Shoremi called on stakeholders of the society to renew efforts on ethical and attitudinal reorientation as he stated loss of societal values as a remarkable challenge to the nation's economic growth.

“Where societal actors, due to loss of moral values, continue eulogize undeserving persons by conferring on them chieftaincy titles and academic honors, the reflection sooner rubs on our youths, who begin see immorality as a way of life. 

“While charging the government to further do more on areas of genuine youth empowerment to discourage the growing engagement in crime, I urge our dear youths to adopt and live a life of modesty, one that they can be proud of when and wherever they find themselves. No one comfortably engages in crime without a day of reckoning.

“This development is not only shameful, it also does not represent the true reflection of the Youths of Ogun State. With the recent global academic celebration of our Youths, young Innovators and Entrepreneurs, we are widely reputable as illustrious and industrious Natives.

“We must continue appreciate Governor Dapo Abiodun for his act of magnanimity towards serving the people of Ogun State, and ensuring adequate representation of all constituencies including the Youth's. Even though crime has no age segregation, it is left to us as young citizens to live today with a constant reminder of the opportunities that abounds in the future,” he said.
