Why President Tinubu appoints UI student, Orire Agbaje
But Okeshola revealed to Legit.ng that Agbaje’s appointment did not come out of a blue moon but because of her commitment to volunteering jobs where necessary. He added that the 400-level student of UI was always willing to contribute her possible best.
The student leader said:
Orire is diligent in what she does. If anything, I know she really volunteers a lot. Always willing to contribute her quotas in any possible way. For example, Heroes and Heroines Initiative (H&H) she was a member when I was a volunteer teacher.
I am sure it was due to her dedication that made members of the tax club picked her to be the President.
I was at the Hult prize program in 2021; she was volunteering at the program as well. So, it is what she loves best, and it has brought her the fortune she deserves. It is expected. According to the statement, just do what you love, irrespective of what you get or not get. Congratulations Orire.
