Gov Dapo Abiodun Under Fire For Gifting Laycon N5million And A House
Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun is under fire for giving the winner of the 2020 Big Brother Naija reality TV show, Olamilekan Agbelesebioba (Better known as Laycon) a sum of N5million and a 3-bedroom bungalow.
Yesterday, Laycon was welcomed by the good people of Ogun state where he also met with the Governor, Abiodun and other Ogun State government agencies.
According to the post shared by via the official social media handles of the Governor:
“We have appointed the winner of the Big Brother Naija Lockdown, @itslaycon Youth Ambassador of Ogun State in addition to house and cash gifts.
“I relayed this development today when I played host to Olamilekan Moshood Agbelesebioba, AKA Laycon in my Oke-Mosan office in Abeokuta.
“The appointment and gifts are a celebration of Laycon’s good character, intellect and virtues which were proven to the whole world on live TV as better choices than vices.
“A proud son of Ogun State, Laycon displayed the essence of focus in the face of temptations and provocations. This is the true Ogun State spirit, and it indeed confirms that this earned him his academic achievement at the University of Lagos.”
Even though the fans of Laycon were happy about this move, Some Ogun State Indigenes and Nigerians are not okay with the decision of Governor Abiodun to give the winner of big brother Naija such amazing gifts, knowing fully well that he has already won the grand prize of N85million in the reality TV Show.
The statement from the Governor was greeted with many negative reactions as people accused him of misplaced priority.
