An Ibadan-born integrated marketing communication consultant, politician, philanthropist, and founder of Foundation and Sodium Group, Abisoye Fagade has posed a leadership challenge to all youths as he boldly stated that he is not too young to rule and it is his civil right to aspire for any political seat in the country.
The statement was made while at a luncheon organized by the south-west group of online publishers (SWEGOP) at the Development Support center (DSC), Iyanganku quarter in Ibadan during an interactive section where Fagade was a special guest of honour.
When confronted by newsmen concerning his rumored leadership interest in the Oyo state governorship seat come 2023, he retorted that it is a fact that he is ready to challenge the incumbent governor of the state, Seyi Makinde as he believes that Oyo state deserves the very best.
While answering questions from CEOAfrica's reporters at the luncheon, the politician advised Nigerian youths to take up the challenge of playing leadership roles and holding leadership positions because this is a good passport to securing their future and a gateway to their greatness.
The politician who spoke about his political party membership gave clue on whether he will be working with his current political party come 2023 as he mentioned that he has been a member of the Alliance for Democracy Party (AD) for the past decade but might likely move from the party if need be because, in his words, that is where “the Afenifere” people are. He further added that the political party is not a priority on his list as he is more concerned with the business of upgrading people's life.
