A National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) member serving in Ekiti State has gotten automatic employment.
The Corps member, Osamwonyi Bright Osas a graduate Political Science and Public Administration, was said to be serving at the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti.
Luck came his way when he met Governor Ayodele Fayose who was assessing the third phase of Ado/Ikere road dualization on Thursday.
The governor was said to be on his way after the assessment of the project when Corps member asked him to take a photograph of him.
“Good afternoon Mr. Governor, I am a native of Edo, I relocated from Adamawa to Ekiti State because of my love for you, I follow everything you do religiously online, I love you so much and I pray God take you higher and higher. I graduated from UNIBEN with a first class in Political Science and Public Administration, one thing I pray thee, Sir, please allow me to snap with you Sir”, the Corps member said.
Governor Fayose who obliged the request said to him “go to the provost tomorrow, tell her I asked her to give you automatic employment”.
Speaking with newsmen, Osas said ‘I am overwhelmed seeing the governor of Ekiti State today, he’s an amiable leader and he is so down to service when I was in school as an undergraduate, I do read many of his speeches on what governance should be, on how to move Nigeria forward.
“I am in love with the fact that he’s fearless, he discharges his duties without fear or favour, which is one of the qualities I cherish in him. I learnt from him that for you to rule successfully, you must appreciate the common man, he is a very good friend of the masses, seeing him come so close to the people inspires me, I was just coming from my CDS now and I saw him here, I was so happy and I said I must see him before he leaves and that was why I accosted him.
“I just thank God for what happened now and I pray God bless him abundantly. He has just called the provost that I should be retained, that I should be given automatic employment, permanent employment, he called the provost and the provost said the first thing on Monday I should come with my CV. I just want to appreciate governor Fayose.”
