“We began the Ikorodu West Award night to hunt talents, young artistes, models and to reward excellent. Today, the current Crown bearer of Miss Ikorodu-Oga had her first stint with us. She is currently doing good and earning lots of awards for herself in modeling and acting”, he said.

The re – elected NYCN Coordinator said that the opportunities provided by both local and international partners during his administration, were properly executed for the advancement of youths and the community at large.

“We appreciate our partners for making all these possible”, he added.
