Read Tillaman’s acceptance speech below
“The Executive Governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, and his deputy;
All members of the Oyo State Executive Council;
Chairman, Oyo State Agency For Youth Development;
All youth in Oyo state and beyond;
All protocols duly observed and recognized.
BUILD THE YOUTH! BUILD THE NATION!!!
I consider it a great honor and rare privilege to be standing before
the good people of Oyo State, first as a son of the soil and secondly
as a chosen role model for this ambassadorial honour.
Today is a dream come true for me. I appreciate this appointment of
Youth Musical Ambassador conferred on me and look forward to using
this medium to influence positive thinking and career direction for
the youth of Oyo State.
I salute the administration of his Excellency, Senator Abiola Ajimobi
and the Oyo State Agency for Youth Development which identifies and
recognizes the importance of the youth in the formation of a
productive workforce as well as curbing the restiveness of youths that
largely characterize previous administrations to mention but a few.
The youth comprise of students, artisans, employed and unemployed, the
educated and otherwise. We constitute a large force that is energetic,
enthusiastic, full of zeal and limited potentials which is needed to
form a productive society.
Unfortunately, studies show that 70% of youths in Nigeria are
despondent amongst many problems and the failure of society to provide
a solution to this very sensitive issue is detrimental to the
development of the workforce for our future. This jeopardizes the
cliche that places youths as the leaders of tomorrow. We cannot start
to mention the bitter prices that we have paid as a state and a
country due to the poor quality of development provided in the past.
To this end, I seek to use this ambassadorial role to serve this great
state, to represent the interest of the great youth of Oyo state and
our country, Nigeria as a whole. I shall work in accordance with the
Oyo state Agency for Youth Development and will dedicate myself to the
Music is one of the most potent tools to touch the lives of people and
our entertainment industry is evidently gaining deserved recognition
in the world right now. I shall embark on campaigns aimed at
development of raw talents with creative pursuits in this regard,
which includes music, video directing, acting, graphic arts, artist
management , writing, crafting and even painting to mention but a few.
In lieu of this; I indulge the good office of his Excellency, Governor
Ajimobi and his cabinet to borrow leaf from the Chinese Government who
is known largely to mentor and fund individual abilities for nation
I am using this International Youths Day initiative as a clarion call
to this present administration and all the agencies and the good youth
of Oyo State to support me and these intended projects which I believe
will make the state the next one-stop destination for revenue
generation using youth empowerment.
Once again I appreciate this honorable privilege and pledge my full
support to the development of Oyo State.
Long live the Pacesetter, Oyo state!
Long live the dynamic youths of Oyo State!
Long live Nigeria!
BUILD THE YOUTH! BUILD THE NATION!!!
Prince Adetona Adeyemi,
Youth Musical Ambassador,
