Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday reiterated his administration’s commitment to prioritise programmes that give youths more opportunities to thrive.
Governor Sanwo-Olu affirmed this while receiving the management team of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN) who paid him a courtesy visit at the Lagos House, Marina.
The Governor said the recent developments in Nigeria, especially the EndSARS protests necessitated the need to do more in engaging the youths, a project which his administration is committed to, adding that the protests by the youths is a clarion call for people in positions of leadership, saying there is need to deal with the root cause of what brought about the protests.
In the same vein, Governor Sanwo-Olu while receiving the Chairman and Board members of the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCOM), who paid him a courtesy visit at Lagos State House, Marina on Friday also stressed the need for involvement of the youths in Hajj operations.
Governor Sanwo-Olu assured NAHCOM leadership that “Lagos State will continue to ensure that seamless Hajj operations and our Hajj will continue to be a place where people can transit properly and ensure that they have a worthwhile experience passing through airport or many of our facilities in Lagos.”
