Amb. (Dr.) Adegboyega Bamisile: A Youthful Asset for Tinubu's Administration

The role of young people in politics and governance cannot be overemphasized. In Nigeria, where over half of the population is below the age of 30, it is advantageous to have young people in positions of authority to represent the interests of the youth demographic and compete effectively with global counterparts. One of such individuals who have demonstrated leadership, dedication, and commitment in the Nigerian political (foray) is Dr. Adegboyega Bamisile.

Dr. Bamisile, a native of Ekiti State, played a significant role in the victory achieved by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just-concluded presidential election in Nigeria; leading supporters across the geographical length and breadth of the country. He was the Director of Planning, Research, and Strategy for the Bola Tinubu Support Organization (BTSO) and the National Coordinator of Better Nigeria for Asiwaju (BNA), groups formed to promote the narrative for a Southern Presidency as far back as 2019 and 2021 respectively and to make a case for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu's Presidency on the basis of equity, justice, and fairness.

Under Dr. Bamisile's leadership, the elite groups recorded remarkable success, which include but is by no means limited to interventions such as conflict and crisis resolution amongst political state actors, dissemination of useful information, narratives and counter narratives about the candidate through various channels, empowerment of over 40,000 women across the country, provision of artificial limbs to people with disabilities, training and empowerment of artisans, distribution of JAMB forms to students, voter sensitization and assistance with enrollment and collection of Permanent Voter Cards, support to other states like Lagos, Kogi, Niger, Ondo, Ogun, Oyo, Borno, Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna before, during and after the elections. These achievements demonstrate Dr. Bamisile's commitment to the upliftment of the less privileged in society and his ability to drive a cause to a successful conclusion; raising the engagements bar in many instances.

In addition to his work with the BTSO, Dr. Bamisile is also a founding partner of the Arewa Organizations Movement for Asiwaju (AROMA), where he served the organization in advisory roles especially within the Media Strategy and Communications directorate of the organization. AROMA is an organization that is centred around selling the narrative and making a case for Asiwaju Tinubu's presidency in the 19 Northern States of the Federation. Dr. Bamisile's astuteness, loyalty, and dedication to the Asiwaju Project have been evident in his active participation in designing, planning, and executing the major programs of the organization.

One of the major achievements of AROMA, under Dr. Bamisile's leadership, was the courtesy visit to all the first-class and second-class Emirs in Northern Nigeria to sell the narrative for Asiwaju's candidacy and presidency in 2023. This move demonstrates Dr. Bamisile's ability to mobilize and organize grassroots support for a political cause irrespective of tribe, tongue or religious dispositions.

Dr. Bamisile's achievements with the BTSO, BNA and AROMA are impressive, and they show that he is a youthful asset that the Tinubu administration should feature like many have said. Asiwaju Tinubu has been at the forefront of promoting youth inclusion and empowerment in Nigeria's political space. Appointing Dr. Bamisile as a Minister in his administration’s cabinet would be a significant step towards fulfilling this commitment.

In conclusion, Nigeria's political landscape needs young and vibrant leaders who are committed to promoting the interests of the youth demographic. Dr. Adegboyega Bamisile has demonstrated leadership, dedication, and commitment to this cause. His achievements with harmonizing political structures through the instrumentation of the groups he helped create are a testament to his ability to drive a cause to a successful conclusion. Asiwaju Tinubu's administration - as countless others have proposed - should feature Dr. Bamisile, a youthful asset who would bring energy, innovation, and dedication to the administration.
