The 2day Students Legislative Summit powered by the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin has been rounded off.

The second day featured a keynote address by former Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi whose message was delivered by the majority leader, Ekiti State Assembly, Engr. Tolulope Ige.

Dr. Fayemi urged the students to get involved in student government and campus politics, adding that this would provide a hands-on opportunity for them to learn about governance structures and decision-making processes.

” By participating in student councils, legislative bodies, and policy discussions, we can gain valuable experience in leadership and governance.”

Highpoint of the final day was the putting of the delegates in different syndicate groups.

This afforded the opportunity to discuss, apprais and share their views on key components of national development which included Power, Education, True Federalism, Health Care, Agriculture and Food Security, Technology, Employment and Human capital development, Environment, Culture and Tourism.

Speaking at the end of the Summit, the Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin said the Students Legislative Summit was a huge success.

He said the turn out was impressive while the resource persons were brilliant and insightful.

” The maiden edition of Adebo Ogundoyin Students’ Legislative Summit has been concluded. To God be the glory as the 2day event lived up to expectation. I am very happy that in the last two days, we have been able to expose the students to the nitty gritty of lawmaking and it impact in nation building. It was well attended by students from 65 tertiary institutions across the Southwest Nigeria while the array of experienced speakers, panelists and moderators who attended the Summit gave beautiful and brilliant presentations. I will like to say again that, the Summit provided opportunity for the delegates to air their views on critical sectors of the economy.

” I must say that, the Summit has further convinced me of the need to create more training programs and avenues for the youths to garner experiences and also learn from the elders. We must allow them to be part of national discourse. They should be able to express themselves, and we should let their suggestions and views count. This will give them a sense of belonging and will make the Government policies acceptable to them.” Oyo State Speaker said
