0:00 What did the Olawoye campaign do that made it a good environment for young people to work?

Okay, so Lekan's campaign was really, like I said [a] fun environment and the campaign office doors were always open so my friends and I would come we'd do a little bit of homework and then we'd go do a flyer job or a canvas and we'd come back and dinner would be waiting for us. So it really felt like a family environment, and there's obviously everyone there had like a common reason for being there so I think people really spent a lot of time building those relationships and making everyone feel comfortable and feel like they had a leadership role on the campaign.
