The Forum of Youthful Nigerian Professionals (FYNP), has urged Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State to project his best youths that have been able to prove their mettle for positions in the administration of President Bola Tinubu.
FYNP is a group of young professionals in different fields of endeavour.
In a statement on Monday, the National Coordinator of the group, Dr Wilson Chibuna, harped on the need for the older political class in the state to allow the younger politicians to showcase their competence and capacity in the new dispensation at the national level of Nigerian politics.
Chibuna said that the youths that had distinguished themselves should be considered from the state in Tinubu’s cabinet.
He said that the sterling achievements of some youthful members of the House of Representatives from the state were overwhelming.
The national coordinator advised youths in the state to leverage on their records of performance to climb the ladder of higher national service.
Chibuna, who spoke glowingly on the transformative strides of a 38-year-old Mr Tajudeen Adefisoye, representing Idanre/Ifedore Federal Constituency of the state, said that he was most impressed with the oversight performance of the lawmaker.
He added that the recent improvement in the output of Nigerian Army personnel could be deduced from the diligent and important oversight recommendations by Adefisoye as a Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Army and other members of the Committee.
“I was attracted to Hon. Adefisoye, who is better known as Small Alhaji, for his patriotic and excellent oversight job he did as the Deputy Chairman, House Committee on Army.
“This effort has undeniably manifested in the improved welfare of our soldiers and this has also in turn expectedly led to improvement in the performance of Nigerian Army personnel in the last three years.
“Having seen the great qualities and competence of Hon. Adefisoye, I insisted that we should visit his federal constituency some two years ago, all in a bid to satisfy my curiosity. As expected, the number of projects already executed completely by Hon. Adefisoye got me marvelled,” he stated.
According to him, the lawmaker made a lot of innovative projects that got him endeared to the grassroots.
“The constituents openly described him as obviously the best House of Representatives member since 1999.
“I was therefore not surprised when Small Alhaji won the 2021 African Best Legislator Award and other several national awards,” he said.
Chibuna also commended the outstanding performance of Mr Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo, another youthful legislator from the state.
The medical doctor added that he was also quite impressed with the quantum and quality of projects executed in Akoko North East/Akoko North West Federal Constituency of the state.
