The Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS) has appointed Olufemi Oguntamu as Youth Ambassador.
The appointment, which was announced in an official letter from the West African Youth Council is in recognition of his laudable antecedents of dedication, hard work, and diligence in the area of service to humanity.
Oguntamu, a Public Relations specialist and founder of a media agency, Penzaarville Africa is a versatile entrepreneur.
The award, which comes on the heels of the celebration of his company’s fifth year anniversary has since been described by the 30-year-old entrepreneur as a challenge to ensure he does even more than he has in the past. In his words, “Receiving such accolades gives me mixed feelings. First, I am grateful for the recognition and more importantly, I am challenged to do more. Thankfully, on a personal note and for us at Penzaarville, our slogan is let’s do more, which is a charge for us not to settle even after we achieved excellence”.
The association’s President, Ambassador Emmanuel William, in his letter congratulating Oguntamu, stated that his work as an advocate and relentless crusader of promoting entrepreneurship for African youths amongst other things is the reason for the honour.
Oguntamu’s Penzaarville Africa offers Digital media, Public relations, brand management, and Talent management services.
