Excited by the appointment of Miss Moremi Ojudu, daughter of Sen. Femi Ojudu, as Senior Special Assistant to President Bola Tinubu on Community Engagements, Ekiti Gov. Biodun Oyebanji has lauded the appointment.

Oyebanji has also congratulated the presidential aide, a daughter of the soil.

The Governor expressed appreciation to Tinubu for the gesture which came few months after the appointments of Mr Dele Alake, also from Ekiti as Minister of Solid Minerals and Hon Ibrahim Olanrewaju as Senior Special Assistant on National Assembly Affairs (House of Representatives) as well as the emergence of Senator Opeyemi Bamidele as Leader of the Senate.

In a statement signed by the governor’s spokesman, Olayinka Oyebode, in Ado-Ekiti on Tuesday and emailed to Persecondnews, Oyebanji said he is confident that more indigenes of the state would soon get federal appointments.

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.

“On behalf of the Government and good people of Ekiti State, I extend our heartfelt appreciation to the President for this great honor and recognition accorded her,” he said.
