It was with a humbled heart that I received the news of my emergence as the Outstanding Legislator of the year (Federal) in a poll put together by the Ogun State Youth Council. This victory is so symbolic as it is coming as plans are in top gear to celebrate my 60th birthday, hence, it is a huge birthday gift from a no-less group as the Youth Council.
It is a testimonial of sorts as it is a manifestation of how our youths have come to identify through a popular participation process that indeed I have brought back to my Federal Constituency and Ogun state, the dividends of democracy as a Federal Legislator through my unprecedented projects, programmes and interventions which Almighty Allah has given me the grace to facilitate. The votes could not have spoken any better and louder.
As the saying goes that *the reward for hardwork is more work*, I am therefore assuring the teeming youths of my Federal Constituency, and by extension Ogun State youths and people, that I will not rest on my oars in my bid to bring home more juicy and sumptuous dividends of democracy.
I wish to humbly express my gratitude to all members of my Federal Constituency for giving me their mandates in the first place, the State Executive of the Youth Council for deeming it fit to nominate me for the polls, and the voters who spent their time, fund and data in casting their votes for me.
Once again, I am so elated and honoured to have been richly considered for this heart-pleasing award.
Rt. Hon. Adekoya Adesegun Abdel-Majid,(ATTACKER),Deputy Minority Whip,House of Representatives.
