While commending the organizers of the event, Oba Olatunbosun stated that “this is a conglomerate of wonderful youths who think of what they can do for their country, rather than what their country will do for them.”

“Making the best of your talents is the key to greater accomplishment. What ideas do you have that is unique? What ideas do you have that can sell? Don’t say it is impossible. Nothing is impossible. It depends on you,” he stated.

Also he advised that “you need to have self-discipline – it means everything in life. If you don’t have self-discipline, you are not in control of your life. Keep your pleasure in check now. For instance, don’t go and impregnate a lady when you are not ready for marriage and start a family.”

Speaking further, the monarch said “In addition, beware of little expenses – softdrinks to you and your girlfriends, cigarettes, snickers, nice face caps, colourful wristwatch, designer shirts, parties from time to time, bottle water when it is the same company that produces the sachet water.

“Don’t spend money like you have arrived when indeed you have not. Invest those little money, and before you know it, something great will come out of it,” he added.

On the strides of Governor Adeleke since his assumption of office, the monarch said “Adeleke is your senior colleague and a very good Ambassador. No wonder he’s getting this kind of support from the youths. He can dance and as well perform both in the other room and in governance.
