Kasunmu Wins ‘Most Promising Young Politician Of The Year Award’
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.
