Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has charged Nigerian youths, especially those living in the state to be global ambassadors and real leaders of tomorrow.
Sanwo-Olu, who reiterated his administration’s commitment to programmes that would benefit youths, said the state government would create a platform for youths to be global leaders and not divisional leaders.
Speaking on Thursday during a courtesy visit by the Lagos State and divisional youth ambassadors at the Lagos House, Marina, Governor Sanwo-Olu said his administration is building a great future for the youths and other Lagosians with various interventions under the THEMES agenda.
The Lagos State and divisional youth ambassadors are winners of the annual IBILE Youth Academy leadership programme, which started four years ago.
Governor Sanwo-Olu urged the Lagos State Youth Ambassador, Funmilayo Akanni-shelle and the divisional ambassadors – Aminat Onike-Azeez (Ikeja), Selome Hunpatin (Badagry), Gbolabo Femi-Jolayemi (Ikorodu), Qudus Shodunke (Lagos) and AbdulRahman Saheed (Epe) to use the platform given to them to touch lives and create the future that they will all be proud of.
Speaking earlier, Akannishelle, commended Governor Sanwo-Olu and the state government for providing a platform for them through the IBILE Youth Academy leadership programme.
She said the IBILE Youth Academy leadership programme has changed them mentally and made them to be better people, adding that the training has also motivated them to work toward building a Nigeria the youth would be proud of.
