Pelumi Olajengbesi, a human rights lawyer, says the inauguration of a special youth advisory committee by Ademola Adeleke, Osun governor-elect, will boost inclusive governance in the state.

In a statement on Friday, Olajengbesi, a former candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Oriade constituency in the Osun state house assembly, said the committee will push the aspirations and agenda of young people forward in the state.

According to him, the advisory committee will address the challenges facing the youth population in the state as soon as the governor-elect is sworn in.

Olajengbesi said despite the legal tussle over the recently-concluded governorship election in the state, Adeleke has shown readiness to take over from the incumbent governor and won’t be distracted by “politically- motivated petitions”.

“The governor-elect of Osun state, Ademola Adeleke, won’t be distracted no matter the stones hurl at his train by detractors and naysayers. The PDP governor-elect remains focus with his eyes set alone on the ball,” Olajengbesi said.

“The inauguration of a special youth advisory committee on Thursday is testament to the fact that Senator Adeleke has hit the ground running. As the governor said during the inauguration, the committee will address deepening unemployment, under-employment, drug abuse, thuggery and cultism, internet fraud and a loss of hope caused by failed leadership amongst the youths.

“The governor-elect also said his administration will revive the National Youth Council, support expansion of faith-based youth organisations, upgrade digital economy as economic booster, establish incubation and innovation development centres across the state.

“The fact that the committee will also bridge the gap between the young and the old is another testimony to the youth-centric commitment of Senator Adeleke whose nephew is the popular songstar David Adeleke aka Davido.”
