The Commissioner for Youth and Sports Development in Oyo State, Asiwaju Seun Fakorede, has commended Deji Ola on his contributions to the development of the sector.
While speaking at the novelty match organized by the Friends of Deji Ola, FOD, on Saturday at UCH football pitch, Ibadan, the commissioner described Deji Ola as one of the resourceful and intelligent youths in the state.
He commended Friends of Deji Ola team for the various contributions to humanity such as the distribution of Covid-19 palliative, visitation to the mother less baby homes, quiz competition for secondary schools, human capacity development to mention few.
On his part, the convener of the event, Deji Ola, appreciated the commissioner for his usual support and promised to even do more.
According to him, ” The question has always been, how far have we been able to change the narratives in a positive way? With this in my mind, our best can never be enough. This has been the drive because our leaders can’t do it all. It is just a way to fill the vacuum.
“I thank the Executive Governor of Oyo State, Engr. Seyi Makinde, for giving us an enabling environment to operate. Without this, we might not be able to touch lives as much as we have done.”
He emphasized that FOD is a non-governmental organization with a mandate to always create values, touch lives and raise great minds. He also promised that the FOD team would continue to serve as a good example for youth development in the state.
