Why you should vote for Faruk Olaotan Shitta as Ogun NYCN Vice Chairman


This is to humbly and officially notify you of my intent to volunteer and vie for Ogun Central Vice Chairmanship Office of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, (NYCN) Ogun State Chapter. 

My declaration became necessary after due consultations with my immediate family members, Council stakeholders, leaders, friends and colleagues.

Over the years of my active participation in youth development related activities and experience in humanitarian services and advocacy, I am confident that I am eminently most suitable for the Vice Chairmanship position, Ogun Central. 

I have been privileged to go on expedition far and near across the country, mostly sponsored via different means of transportation such as land, air, water and rail to attend and observe National Congresses and other humanitarian activities while I have also served in different leadership capacities at the grassroot level such as CDA EXCO, CDC Youth Leader, Acting Vice Chairman 2, NYCN IFO LG and was later elected as Deputy Coordinator 2 of NYCN IFO LG thereafter elected as the pioneer Coordinator for the defunct Àgbàdo/Oke-Aro LCDA with indelible impactful projects and activities which has developed my capabilities and capacities to champion good cause for youths development. _My tenure was adjudged by all stakeholders as one of the most impactful and best in Ogun State of that time._

Currently, I am the Public Relations Officer 2, NYCN Ogun State Chapter and I initiated the maiden annual 3days seminar for all local branches and affiliated youths organizations PROs with accomodation and invited veterans in Journalism as resource persons such as Amb. Tunde Oladunjoye, OGTV Board Chairman; NUJ Ogun State Chairman and host of others while I also establish Forum of NYCN Ogun PROs for effective communication system.

The NYCN Ogun PROs forum seminar was aired on OGTV New Dawn program, radio Stations and online blogs while I also granted interviews on different media on trending issues.

I have volunteered in different positions/responsibilities in the past and present in numerous youth led groups/Associations such as The Scout Association of Nigeria; Nigeria Youth Enlightenment Association; Yoruba Youth Socio-Cultural Association; NASFAT; Cadet; United Youths Support For Annihilation Of Poverty & Empoyment of the Less Privileged Initiative, Youth Assembly of Nigeria and so on.

I have equally been opportuned to meet and discuss with notable personalities and veterans in several professional field of endeavors and Government functionaries such as the Former President Olusegun Obasanjo; Former President Goodluck Jonathan; Vice President Yemi Osinbajo; Ministers; Senators; Reps; State Assemblies; Council Chairmen and so on for one engagement to another.

Additionally, I have been privileged to work closely with ranking State House of Assembly Member, Hon Ganiyu Oyedeji (GOCO) and Federal House of Representatives Member, Hon Ibrahim Isiaka (Easylife) and other profiled Government officials.

History also recorded that I was privileged to facilitate the following for the teaming Youths, such as six (6) months intervals of skills acquisition training in different field with working equipment given to the best students at graduation and certificate duly signed by the Local Government Council Chairman, Job opportunities, networking and leadership, working tools from Government officials as empowerments and other welfare packages, registered a Youth Cooperative Society with Ogun State Government, registered Farmer's group with IFO Local Government while several sensitization rally/programs are not left behind on social vices and capacity building till date both within and outside Ogun State.

I am a trained and certified Poultry Farmer by Lagos State Government and one of the best ten in my session.

I am the Founder of a duly registered NGO and Business Enterprise with CAC, Save Our Future (SOF) Initiative and Executive Director, Affordable & Valuable Enterprise.

I use my skills and expertise in ICT, Agriculture and leadership capacity building in reorienting, refocusing and rechanneling the energy of young people around in order to drastically reduce the menace of youth restiveness and other vices.

My most recent appointment in the NYCN was as Chief Press Secretary to the current Vice President, Southwest of the National Youth Council of Nigeria.

I have been a catalyst to progressive changes in the lives of Youth around me and built a good working relationship with all my contemporaries. I value greatly the lessons learnt and the skills acquired.

The Ogun Central Vice Chairmanship position I am aspiring for is to further impact more lives and serve humanity, and there is no better time than now!

I discovered it is time to aspire for a  position like this where my experience and skills would be put to effective and positive use for the greater good of the Youths of Ogun Central.

I therefore seize the opportunity presented to research my popularity and strength to determine that the Vice Chairmanship position and my SWOT is a strong match. 

Conclusively, I use this opportunity to once again salute all stakeholders and most importantly, leaders from Ogun Central as well as the current State Executives for their contributions and sacrifice towards youth development in the State.

Build The Youth; Build The Nation!
