Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun on Tuesday appointed the winner of the Big Brother Naija show, Olamilekan Moshood Agbelesebioba, popularly known as Laycon as the youth ambassador of the state.
Abiodun also gave Laycon a three-bedroom bungalow and N5 million.
The governor made the announcement when he played host to Laycon, in his office at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, the state capital, on Tuesday.
Laycon, an indigene of the state from Odeda Local Government Area, won the N85 million grand prize of the reality show.
Abiodun described Laycon’s conduct in the BBN house as demonstrating the ‘omoluabi’ component, the primary ingredient of an Ogun State-born Nigerian, observing that despite all the odds, temptations and provocations, he was able to come out unscathed and uninvolved in any scandal or immoral act.
“It is hoped that you will help inspire our teeming youths to channel their energies towards positive engagements and shun vices such as robbery, drug abuse, cultism, advanced fee fraud, cybercrime and kidnapping amongst other negative tendencies,” he said.
Abiodun revealed that plans are at an advanced stage to build an entertainment village for filmmakers, artists and musicians where their skills could be nurtured with added value for socio-economic development.
