Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo state, has finally met with Adefeniku Imole, the young boy, who drew his portrait.
On Monday, Akeredolu had taken to his social media page to ask about the whereabouts of the gifted kid after Mary Ogunga, a Twitter user, shared a portrait of the governor drawn by him on the micro-blogging platform.
In a follow-up post on Tuesday, the governor announced that he has met with the young artist.
He went on to describe the SS 2 student of Greater Tomorrow Secondary School in Okitipupa as a talented kid with promising future ahead of him.
Akeredolu, who is the chairman of south west governors’ forum, also revealed that Imole told him that his dream has been to meet the governor some day.
“I met with Adefeniku today. He lives with his family in Okitipupa. He said his dream was for him to meet the Governor some day. A vibrant young man with a bright future ahead of him. Thanks to Twitter and @mary_ogunga for helping him realise his dream,” he wrote on Twitter.

Imole further adds to the list of young Nigerians who have caught the attention of prominent figures after drawing a portrait of them and circulating it on Twitter.
TheCable Lifestyle had in December last year reported how Donald Trump, US president, also hailed Oyedele Adedokun, a Nigerian ballpoint artist, for making a portrait of him purely out of a blue and red pen.
