The Guardian (Nigeria) - - HIGH SOCIETY -

It was an­other mo­ment of hon­our, ap­plause and recog­ni­tion for hard work last week­end as the law­maker rep­re­sent­ing Ikeja Con­stituency II at the La­gos State House of As­sem­bly, Hon. Adedamola Richard Ka­sunmu, also known as ARK was dec­o­rated with an­other high pro­file award. The cool, calm and unas­sum­ing leg­is­la­tor was hon­oured with the “Most Promis­ing Young Politi­cian of The Year” at the City Pride Achiev­ers Award 2017. The in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony took place on Septem­ber 23 at the Seven Stars Event Cen­tre, Ogba, La­gos. Ac­cord­ing to the or­gan­is­ers, Hon. Ka­sunmu emerged as the 2017 win­ner of this cat­e­gory as a re­sult of his out­stand­ing leg­isla­tive and po­lit­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties which re­sulted into the pro­mul­ga­tion and sign­ing into Law of two Ex­ec­u­tive Bills spon­sored by him on the floor of the House early this year. The two laws, The La­gos State Sports Com­mis­sion Law and The La­gos State Sports Trust Fund Law, which were passed by the House un­der the able lead­er­ship of Rt. Hon. Mu­dashiru Obasa and signed into Law by His Ex­cel­lency Gov. Ak­in­wunmi Am­bode in Fe­bru­ary this year, have started yield­ing tremen­dous re­sults in the area of en­hanc­ing sport­ing ac­tiv­i­ties and im­pact­ing the lives of youths in the state. In his ac­cep­tance speech, Hon. Adedamola, ex­pressed his ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Daily Pride Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, say­ing, “or­di­nar­ily, I am not an award freak, I be­lieve in work­ing hard and let­ting my per­for­mance speak for me, but I have to bend the rules to ac­cept this in or­der to re­cip­ro­cate the good ges­ture of the or­gan­is­ers, who are also young in­di­vid­u­als like me, and also to en­cour­age their work.” Speak­ing fur­ther, the law­maker ded­i­cated the award to God Almighty, the peo­ple of Ikeja Con­stituency 2, Asi­waju Bola Ahmed Tin­ubu, The Speaker of La­gos State House of As­sem­bly, Rt. Hon. Mu­dashiru Obasa and all the good youths of Nige­ria.
