This was the submission of the Grand Patron of the Owo Youth General Assembly, Mr Banji Alabi while addressing members of the group at the 2019 End of year programme in Owo.
Alabi who is also the Chairman of the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic, Owo reiterated that societal advancements can only be achieved through the full participation of youths
“The year 2019 remains a very unique year for every true son and daughter of Owo Kingdom ! It is a year when during the tenure of our own Aketi as the State Governor , gave Owo the nod. for a wonderful enthronement of a ‘Youthful First Class Oba – Olowo of Owo – Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye. What a blissful year of generational coincidence for our Kingdom!!!
As the Grand Patron of the Assembly, my romance with our dear Governor – Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu and our new Olowo of Owo is yielding results already. The Governor has assured us that Owo youth would have it far better than ever as the Rufus Giwa Polytechnic is on the verge of becoming a ‘Degree awarding institution. The school will as well avail many Owo youth technical and Information Technology opportunities by the planned creation ofTech hub, solar farm, vocation Centre and Technical Workshops right in the school campus. More so commercial and trading opportunities would be availed Owo youth in the school campus with the planned commercialisation of several activities in the school.
With your cooperation and support(as shown up till now), Owo youth are in for a more wonderful experience. At this, the members of this great assembly should line up themselves for these opportunities by doing more than ever before.
As you can all see the benefits of an Owo son as a Governor can be better imagined. How and why then shall we not work harder and fully enjoy our 8year slush of the office!
IT IS 4+4 or nothing. Aketi is the answer; Aketi is the way and route for a better Owo Kingdom. Let us use our opportunities as a vibrant Youth Assembly to get Aketi re-elected. Aketi is our sure way into the next political decade of Ondo State.
Please be assured of my continuous cooperation and willingness to make life better for our teeming Owo youth. Our Governor and Kabiyesi are good opportunities for us to grow Owo into a first class Yoruba Kingdom.
Wishing you all a Merry 2019 Christmas and a prosperous year 2020 ahead”
