Describing Ojudu’s appointment as a welcome development, he pointed out that the renowned activist and public relations practitioner has the experience, exposure and expertise required to excel in her new assignment.
He said he was happy the President found her worthy of such significant role in his government.
“I’m optimistic that Miss Ojudu would excel in her new role as the President’s SSA Community Engagement giving her antecedence as a celebrated political communicator, activist and public relations practitioner, who had previously played some significant roles in the country’s political process.”
Oyebanji urged the newly appointed Presidential aide to deploy her energy, tact and mobilization skills in building an excellent relationship between the Presidency and various communities and groups, a development he said is crucial to the country’s political stability.
“It is a call to serve and I trust Miss Ojudu’s capacity to make a huge success of the new assignment.
