Shobowale clinches Ooni’s ‘100 Nigerian youth leaders’ award
Lukman Shobowale, Lagos foremost realtor is one of the 100 Nigerian Youth leaders awarded by Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi on Friday in his palace, Ife, Osun State.
The Ooni gave out the awards in Ile-Ife under the aegis of his Royal African Young Leadership Forum, an initiative created to celebrate exceptional Nigerian youths.
According to Ogunwusi, the young population remains the major catalyst in boosting the economic growth of the country and that of the African continent.
“Africa has one of the world’s youngest populations with stimulating depth of human capacity and arrays of entrepreneurial relentless spirit, new dreams, unquenchable energies and ambitions.
“The united voices of millions of young populations in Nigeria and across Africa will certainly contribute solutions through their own ingenuities that would help in painting a picture of what they want for themselves, the future generations and the continent.
“I am proud of the successes being recorded by our youths despite the challenges.
“I hereby identify with them and I pledge to assist them to record more wins with the throne of Oduduwa,” the Ooni said.
Reacting to the award, Shobowale said he counts it as a rare privilege and as a recognition of his effort over the years, especially within the real estate space.
He, therefore, thanked the monarch for bestowing him with such a prestigious award saying, “Based on the calibre of people represented at the award, I am optimistic of what the future holds for our great country, Nigeria.”
