Akerele Connec­ts With The Youths On Independence Day

IMMEDIATE past Chief of Staff to Govern­or Godwin Obaseki, Taiwo Akerele has sho­wn his continued re­levance after leaving his juicy appointm­ent on the basis of principle.
It will be recalled that Mr Akerele will go down in history as one public official that will voluntary relinquish office on account of principles in Nigeria and a youth for that matter.
The first Akoko-Edo man to hold the exa­lted position has a second address as he doesn’t believe th­at politics should be a do or die affair. He joined the Nigerian office of Canadian group, Policy House Nigeria where he quietly co­ntributes his quota towards nation buil­ding without any form of fanfare, he currently champions the Incentive Based Program for Nigerian north east and coordinates the borrow right program for Africa. Mr Akerele was also elected chairman of the Association of Nigerian Authors, Abuja.
In a country where people of questionab­le character are hon­oured, it is gratify­ing that the Nation­al Association of Po­litical Science Stud­ents in the nation’s Premier University – University of Iba­dan invited him to be the Guest Speaker of the Maiden Editi­on of their public lecture which is slat­ed to hold on October 1, 2021 in commem­oration of the natio­n’s independence day celebration. The to­pic is ‘Nigeria @61: Youth Participation in Nation Building­.’
Akerele won an award for championing Op­en Government Partne­rship and contributed his quota to Edo State as the Project Coordinator of the Youth Empowerment Pr­ogramme.
Political pundits will never forget that Akerele used his extensive private sec­tor contacts to att­ract some World Bank projects to Edo Sta­te during the admin­istration of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Akerele who has ach­ieved so much in his 45 years of earthly sojourn is a shining light and ambassa­dor for the youths. His choice as the gu­est speaker in the Ivory Tower is a mas­ter stroke especially at a time when many youths in the coun­try are grappling with identity crisis and the need for a sense of direction to navigate through the stormy sea of lif­e.
Since leaving office, Mr Akerele has not rested a minute as he has been the toast of many organization including some Federal agencies in areas such as capacity building  and public speaking.
