Elere Samuel bagged the TOLD Leadership award for exemplary contributions to youths and community development across Kogi State.
The award was handed to him by Dr. Pemi Daniel on behalf of Sijuade Adeyeye and the leadership of TOLD NETWORK in Mopa on Sunday.
The award was not previously announced but was given after his brilliant delivery as Guest Speaker at the leadership event. Previous speakers at the event has been Erelu Ronke Bello PhD and Amb. Olusiji Aina Double.
The aim of the leadership event is to brainstorm on the way forward for youths aiming at leadership position or occupying leadership position but Sam Elere took a detour from the norms targeting followers as a crucial force in putting leadership right by first empowering themselves with all requisite ingredients. It was a huge success.
