#NotTooYoungToRun: Promising Nigerian Inspires True Political Change In His Neighbourhood





The last thing on the mind of Adedeji Harris Adesola is to sit behind his computer or Smartphone to rant on social media about politics and the economy just like thousands of other youths as he is set to throw his hat in the ring to slug it out with the aged political warhorses in Oyo State.

In the times of the #NotTooYoungToRun campaign, some Nigerian youths appear to be gathering political inspiration from the French President, Emmanuel Macron, 40; Sebastian Kurz of Austria, 31, and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammad bin Salman, 32.

Adedeji Harris Adesola, a graduate of Sociology and Anthropology from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State has decided to take his chances rather than wait to be given one by the elderly politicians.

The 37-year old handsome young man who was born on Valentine's Day which signifies love to the world will be contesting for a seat at the Oyo State House of Assembly in the representation of the Ibadan South East Local Government Constituency 1 under the banner of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Speaking confidently to a TORI NEWS correspondent recently, the dark-skinned egghead spoke about how he was motivated to contest out of a deep and sincere desire to enforce positive change and provide true leadership which is inadequate in the country.

"I want to give my people sound, good and quality representation at the floor of the Oyo State House of Assembly. I want to legislate, sponsor bills and make laws that will have a positive influence on our social institutions and that will have a direct positive impact the State economy and make life meaningful for my people at my constituency as a unit of the State and Oyo State at large" he emphasized during a recent parley.


Adedeji Harris Adesola is quite successful as a youth with a track record of impressive work experience. He is the Chairman/CEO of Agogo Global Ventures - a business enterprise which is striving well amid the challenges of doing business in Nigeria.

One of the intriguing features of Adedeji Harris Adesola is his interest in some intricate issues battling Oyo State over decades which many lawmakers have been wary about dabbling into.

He wants to speak on the economy of the state and contribute his quota towards improving the Internally Generated Revenue which is abysmally around N2 billion per month, address workers and pensioners' welfare, industrialization, youth unemployment, health care, education and the plight of the physically challenged people who have been sidelined over time.

On his chances of winning, Adedeji Harris Adesola quoted the golden words of the South African legend, Nelson Mandela which reads; "It always seems impossible until it's done".

He urged Nigerian youths to stop complaining on social media about the state of affairs in Nigeria and participate in the electoral process by running for offices and also coming out en masse to vote for their desired candidates
