A lucky National Youth Service Corps Member, Osamwonyi Bright Osas was offered an automatic employment by the Governor of the state, Ayodele Fayose.
It was an exciting day for Osamwonyi Bright Osas, a graduate of Political Science and Public Administration, who is currently serving at the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, when he met Fayose on Thursday 20th April.
According to reports, this happened during the Governor’s visit to Ikere Ekiti, where he went to inspect the third phase of the ongoing Ado/Ikere road dualization.
Bright Osas was just passing through the inspection cite when he saw the governor and requested to take a photograph with him. The Corper, who was dressed in his NYSC uniform introduced himself to the governor:
“Good afternoon Mr. Governor, I am a native of Edo, I relocated from Adamawa to Ekiti State because of my love for you, I follow everything you do religiously online.
“I love you so much and I pray God take you higher and higher. I graduated from UNIBEN with a first class in Political Science and Public Administration, one thing I pray thee Sir, please allow me snap with you Sir.”
Governor Fayose, who was impressed with the Corps member’s manner of approach, granted him the oppotunity of sharing photos with him.
Fayose then asked Bright to go to the provost the next day, Friday 21st April and tell her to give him an automatic employment letter, courtesy of the state government.
The excited Corps member was overjoyed and prostrated and also knelt down for Fayose in appreciation.
Speaking to newsmen, Bright Osas said;
“I am overwhelmed seeing the governor of Ekiti State today, he’s an amiable leader and he is so down to service, when I was in school as an undergraduate I do read many of his speeches on what governance should be, on how to move Nigeria forward.
“I am in love with the fact that he’s fearless, he discharges his duties without fear or favour, that is one of the qualities I cherish in him.
“I learnt from him that for you to rule successfully, you must appreciate the common man, he is a very good friend of the masses, seeing him come so close to the people inspires me.
“I was just coming from my CDS now and I saw him here, I was so happy and I said I must see him before he leaves and that was why I accosted him.
Bright confirmed that the governor already called the provost and he is expected to submit his curriculum vitae first thing on Monday, 24th April in order to secure his automatic/ permanent employment.
